In the northwestern part of Maine-in the area known as the Lakes District-the small town of Sharbot curves like a crescent around a beautiful body of water called Dark Score Lake. Dark Score is one of the deepest lakes in New England-better than three hundred feet in some places. Some of the locals have been known to claim it is bottomless...but usually only after a few beers (in Sharbot, half a dozen is considered a few).
Mike Noonan's vacation home (Sara Laughs) is on Dark Score Lake.

Lisey buys cigarettes at a gas station; the proprietor is wearing a Dark Score Lake t-shirt.
Naresh Patel, owner of Patel's Market, was himself on duty when Lisey came in at just past five o'clock on that long, long Thursday.

His tee shirt read I <3 DARK SCORE LAKE.
