12.46: 13-year-old 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 - that's all it took to ruin Detective Ted Conkaffey's life. Accused but not convicted of Claire's abduction, he escapes north, to the steamy, croc-infested wetlands of Crimson Lake. Amanda Pharrell knows what it's like to be public enemy no.1. Maybe it's her murderous past that makes her so good as a private investigator, tracking lost souls in the wilderness.

Her latest target, missing author Jake Scully, has a life more shrouded in secrets than her own - so she enlists help from the one person in town more hated than she is: Ted Conkaffey. But the residents of Crimson Lake are watching the pair's every move. And for Ted, a man already at breaking point, this town is offering no place to hide...

About the Author

Candice won back-to-back Ned Kelly awards for her first two novels Hades and Eden. She is also the author of the critically acclaimed Fall and co-writer with James Patterson of the Sunday Times Top Ten bestseller Never Never set in the Australian outback.

    Comments about Crimson Lake:

    I'm a Candice Fox fan and she just keeps getting better. The Hades series were so different with her slightly dark , out of kilter characters , but now with Never Never [ and the sequel to come ] , Black and Blue with yet more intriguing characters like Tox and now Ted and his past , innocence yet to proven , Amanda and , not to forget , Woman and the 6 geese. A read it over and over again book.
