The sequel to Candice Fox's stunning breakout novel Crimson Lake, which Lee Child described as 'one of the best thrillers of the year'.

#1 New York Times bestselling author Candice Fox delivers a compulsive new crime thriller, which sees Ted Conkaffey once again teaming up with an unlikely partner – this time the father of the girl he was accused of abducting . . .

When former police detective Ted Conkaffey was wrongly accused of abducting thirteen-year-old 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 . . .

Candice Fox first novel is Hades, won the Ned Kelly Award for best debut in 2014 from the Australian Crime Writers Association. The sequel, Eden, won the Ned Kelly Award for best crime novel in 2015, making Candice only the second author to win these accolades back-to-back.

Candice is the middle child of a large, eccentric family from Sydney's western suburbs composed of half-, adopted and pseudo siblings. The daughter of a parole officer and an enthusiastic foster-carer, Candice spent her childhood listening around corners to tales of violence, madness and evil as her father relayed his work stories to her mother and older brothers.

Bankstown born and bred, she failed to conform to military life in a brief stint as an officer in the Royal Australian Navy at age eighteen. At twenty, she turned her hand to academia, and taught high school through two undergraduate and two postgraduate degrees. Candice lectures in writing at the University of Notre Dame, Sydney, while undertaking a PhD in literary censorship and terrorism.

    After reading Crimson Lake I was dying to read this and I wasn’t disappointed! Cracking thriller with a hot and humid landscape to crank up that tension and uncomfortable situations.

    I just love Amanda and Ted – the two Private Investigators in Crimson Lake who have interesting backgrounds and an interesting partnership. don’t worry if you haven’t read bookone, there’s enough here to keep you happy but still want to go back to Crimson Lake anyway which you should.

    It’s now Ted in the spotlight here and having the tables turned proves to be very interesting indeed. It’s a very tragic crime and interesting to see how the accused acts and feels as well as those on the other side of the fence so to speak.

    What was particularly interesting and gripping here was teh fact that the rapist who had committed the crime had kept a diary and that was both uncomfortable to read yet fascinating all at once. Getting an insight into what makes someone do this -seeing all sides of the case was like being at the front of the courtroom. As evidence comes by, Candice handles everything with ease.

    That’s not the only crime involved here either. There’s also a murder in a bar. A double one to be precise.

    Both this and the rape accusation create a drama filled with tension and humid rage. The setting is a character in itself and the whole novel is an expertly crafted read.

    Cunning and intrepid these Foxes aren’t they?
