Dark Sky Island: A Jennifer Dorey Mystery
The small Island of Sark lies in the English Channel and is home to about 450 isolated souls. Jenny Dorey used to spend her summers on the island, so she knows it well. She hasn’t been back since the unexplained drowning of her father, Charles Dorey. When the police get a tip about some bones in a cave, Jenny, a journalist with a Guernsey newspaper, heads over to investigate. While she is trying to find out more about the bones; an elderly man on the island is murdered. Jenny can’t help but feel something’s going on on this dark, secretive island. She wonders if things are connected. Maybe her father discovered something before he died. If only she could find out what it was, she might have some answers about his death. She’s hoping her police friend Michael will be able to shed some light on everything happening on the island. But he may be as much in the dark as she is. Until it’s too late, that is.
Dark Sky Island is a riveting story told through the lens of past and present, delivering a complex tale of mystery and suspense. Dearman has a writing style that captures the atmosphere of this remote island so beautifully you will feel like you’ve been there. This book is at once mesmerizing and gripping. I couldn’t put it down.
