Into The Night

Book: Into the Night
Series: Gemma Woodstock #2
Author: Sarah Bailey

Troubled and brilliant, Detective Sergeant Gemma Woodstock finds herself lost and alone after a recent move to Melbourne, brokenhearted by the decisions she's had to make. Her new workplace is a minefield and Detective Sergeant Nick Fleet, the partner she has been assigned, is uncommunicative and often hostile. When a homeless man is murdered and Gemma is put on the case, she can't help feeling a connection with the victim and his lonely, isolated existence.

Then Sterling Wade, an up-and-coming actor filming his breakout performance in a closed-off city street, is murdered in the middle of an action-packed shot, and Gemma and Nick have to put aside their differences to unravel the mysteries surrounding the actor's life and death. Who could commit such a brazen crime? Who stands to profit from it? Far too many people, and none of them can be trusted. Gemma can't imagine a pair of victims with less in common--and yet as Gemma and Fleet soon learn, both men were keeping secrets that may have led to their deaths.-Goodreads

Review: This was a wonderful follow-up to book 1 in the series. After the demise of her relationship, Gemma leaves her son with her ex and  moves to Melbourne. Her personal life is still a complete and utter hot mess but her character is well developed. This book read more like a traditional police procedural and I really enjoyed it. 

Grade: 4/5
