A Crimson Lake Novel
Crimson Lake: Book #2
“If you liked Crimson Lake, you will love Redemption Point even more. If you haven’t read Crimson Lake then you are really missing a terrific new crime writer. You have never met two more eccentric, damaged and likeable characters than Amanda Pharrell and Ted Conkaffey. Amanda spent 10 years in prison for killing a classmate when she was a teen. She readily accepted her sentence because while killing the person she did was an accident, she did mean to kill someone else. Ted is a disgraced ex-policeman who is still trying to get over being accused of the brutal rape and beating of a 13 year old girl. Until the real culprit is caught he will always be the most hated man in Australia but he has no energy or desire to try and find who really attacked her as he is content to just hide out in a distant remote area of Australia and try to forget about all he lost and at the same time help Amanda with her detective work. In Redemption Point Amanda is hired by the father of one of two people killed execution style in a bar because he doesn’t trust the police. Ted is helping her when the father of his supposed rape victim (who still thinks Ted could be guilty) shows up and forces him to start reliving some of the past, in the hopes of finding the real perpetrator. Candace Fox brings her characters to life in such a way that you even like the ones who should be unlikeable. And the setting in Cairns, complete with alligators, wetlands, and tropic heat just helps add to the intensity of the fabulous story.”Nancy, Fiction Addiction
#1 New York Times bestselling author Candice Fox delivers a compulsive new crime thriller in Redemption Point.
When former police detective Ted Conkaffey was wrongly accused of abducting Claire Bingley, he hoped the Queensland rainforest town of Crimson Lake would be a good place to disappear. But nowhere is safe from Claire's devastated father.
Dale Bingley has a brutal revenge plan all worked out—and if Ted doesn't help find the real abductor, he'll be its first casualty.
Meanwhile, in a dark roadside hovel called the Barking Frog Inn, the bodies of two young bartenders lie on the beer-sodden floor. It's Detective Inspector Pip Sweeney's first homicide investigation—complicated by the arrival of private detective Amanda Pharrell to "assist" on the case. Amanda's conviction for murder a decade ago has left her with some odd behavioural traits, top-to-toe tatts—and a keen eye for killers . . .
For Ted and Amanda, the hunt for the truth will draw them into a violent dance with evil. Redemption is certainly on the cards—but it may well cost them their lives...
"Narrator Euan Morton's gravelly voice and Australian accent embody Ted...His excellent pacing and gripping delivery maintain tension." — AudioFile Magazine on Crimson Lake
