Bookseller Recommendation

Crimson Lake

“I just finished listening to Crimson Lake. Set in Northern Australia, I appreciated that narrator Euan Mortan's Australian accent helped me to feel immersed in the story. Protagonists Ted and Amanda are both beautifully flawed narrators who kept me guessing as to their reliability. It is hard for an author to create one compelling mystery, and in Crimson Lake, Candice Fox weaves in three fascinating, tricky mysteries into one cohesive, immersive story. Adventures in the jungle, a gaggle of foster geese, and a missing, brilliant troubled author keep the plot moving and absorbing. The audiobook also includes an interview with Ms. Fox that gives great insight into the creation of Ted and Amanda, and promises that Crimson Lake is not the last we will hear from them. I am a longtime fan of mysteries, and thoroughly enjoyed this one.”

"Narrator Euan Morton's gravelly voice and Australian accent embody Ted...His excellent pacing and gripping delivery maintain tension." — AudioFile Magazine

Crimson Lake by Sydney-based, Ned Kelly Award-winning and #1 New York Times bestselling author Candice Fox is a thrilling contemporary crime audiobook set in Queensland, Australia — perfect for listeners who are anxious to take a trip Down Under.

How do you move on when the world won’t let you?

12:46: Claire Bingley stands alone at a bus stop
12:47: Ted Conkaffey parks his car beside her
12:52: The girl is missing . . .

Six minutes in the wrong place at the wrong time—that’s all it took to ruin Sydney detective Ted Conkaffey’s life. Accused but not convicted of a brutal abduction, Ted is now a free man—and public enemy number one. Maintaining his innocence, he flees north to keep a low profile amidst the steamy, croc-infested wetlands of Crimson Lake.

There, Ted’s lawyer introduces him to eccentric private investigator Amanda Pharrell, herself a convicted murderer. Not entirely convinced Amanda is a cold-blooded killer, Ted agrees to help with her investigation, a case full of deception and obsession, while secretly digging into her troubled past. The residents of Crimson Lake are watching the pair's every move . . . and the town offers no place to hide.

Praise for Crimson Lake:

"Complex, human characters, and a dark, meaty story, and fine writing, and a great sense of place – this is one of the best crime thrillers of the year. Sign me up as a big-time Fox fan!" —Lee Child, bestselling author of the Jack Reacher series
