Book Announcement: New from Candice Fox!

by |September 10, 2018

Candice Fox has revealed the title and cover for her new book, Gone by Midnight!

Due to be published on the 22nd of January 2019, Gone by Midnight will be the third novel in the series following Private Investigators Ted Conkaffey and Amanda Farrell.

Ted and Amanda are an unlikely pair. If you can imagine a version of The Odd Couple  – except they are both social outcasts/ex-cons, and it’s set in far north Queensland and there are murders to solve and a lot of dark humour …. actually it’s not really like the odd couple at all. But Ted and Amanda do make rather an eccentric and unexpected crime solving duo.

The series began with Crimson Lake and continued with Redemption Point. Now we have a third book to look forward to. I literally cannot wait!!

And now behold the cover of Gone by Midnight …

Gone by Midnight
by Candice Fox

Ex-cop Ted Conkaffey is slowly rebuilding his life in Crimson Lake, and getting to know his three-year-old daughter, Lillian. But when he and his PI partner Amanda take on the case of a boy who seems to have literally disappeared into thin air, his job once again threatens everything . . .

Crimson Lake is where bad people come to disappear – and where eight-year-old boys vanish into thin air . . .

On the fifth floor of the White Caps Hotel, four young friends are left alone while their parents dine downstairs. But when Sara Farrow checks on the children at midnight, her son is missing. The boys swear they stayed in their room, and CCTV confirms Richie has not left the building. Despite a thorough search, no trace of the child is found.

Distrustful of the police, Sara turns to Crimson Lake’s unlikeliest private investigators: disgraced cop Ted Conkaffey and convicted killer Amanda Pharrell. This case is just the sort of twisted puzzle that gets Amanda’s blood pumping.

For Ted, the case couldn’t have come at a worse time. Two years ago a false accusation robbed him of his career, his reputation and most importantly his family. But now Lillian, the daughter he barely knows, is coming to stay in his ramshackle cottage by the lake.

Ted must dredge up the area’s worst characters to find a missing boy. And the kind of danger he uncovers could well put his own child in deadly peril . . .
