Rosalind's secrets didn't die with her.
The lead homicide investigator in a rural town, Detective
Sergeant Gemma Woodstock is deeply unnerved when a high
school classmate is found strangled, her body floating in a
lake. And not just any classmate, but Rosalind Ryan, whose
beauty and inscrutability exerted a magnetic pull on
Smithson High School, first during Rosalind's student years
and then again when she returned to teach drama.
As much as Rosalind's life was a mystery to Gemma when they
were students together, her death presents even more of a
puzzle. What made Rosalind quit her teaching job in Sydney
and return to her hometown? Why did she live in a small,
run-down apartment when her father was one of the town's
richest men? And despite her many admirers, did anyone in
the town truly know her?
Rosalind's enigmas frustrate and obsess Gemma, who has her
own dangerous secrets--an affair with her colleague and past
tragedies that may not stay in the past. Brilliantly
rendered, THE DARK LAKE has characters as compelling and
mysteries as layered as the best thrillers from Gillian
Flynn and Sophie Hannah.
