Ted’s lawyer pointed him in the direction of another damaged soul – Amanda Pharrell had spent years in prison for murder. Now she was a private investigator in Crimson Lake and when Ted went to see her, he was shocked to be hired as her partner in the business. Their job – to find the missing local writer, Jake Scully. But as the two miscreants investigated, it was obvious that people in the town were becoming aware of who Ted was…
The dark secrets surrounded various members of the town and Ted and Amanda found themselves in the middle of it all. What would happen to them with the vigilantes after blood? And would they discover where Jake Scully was?
Crimson Lake by Aussie author Candice Fox is a dark and disturbing crime thriller that seemed too multi levelled to me. I felt there was too much going on; an excess of crimes, bad guys and criminals which made it difficult to keep my head around. I know I’m in the minority with this one, but I found myself disappointed after the huge spin Crimson Lake has had.
6 minutes later she has gone. Detective Ted Conkoffey's life is in ruins. He goes to prison for 8 months, but nobody or definite forensics are found, so he is released. We are left to decide whether he is capable of raping and killing a child. His marriage did not survive time in prison, but much worse is not being able to see his daughter.
He moves away from Sydney to the North and Crimson Lake in Queensland. People are not going to forget and he fears the case being opened again.
His only ally is another much hated person, Amanda Pharrell, who runs a private investigation business. He is recommended to contact her by his solicitor Sean. They join forces and are on the trail of Jake Scully, an author.
The residents in Crimson Lake are watching them ...
I found the characters Ted and Amanda likeable, even with her background. Ted is a strong character who has a big fight ahead of him.
I chose to read this book and all opinions in this review are all my own and completely unbiased. My thanks to Netgalley for this opportunity.
It's really three mysteries. We have disgraced former police detective, Ted, who was accused of the kidnapping and rape of a 13 yo girl. Charges were dropped due to lack of evidence, but he flees Sydney for Crimson Lake, a small town up north. There, his lawyer puts him in touch with a PI, Amanda, who is a convicted killer of her friend in high school. Amanda is investigating the disappearance of a well-known author from Crimson Lake. We go into this book believing Ted to be innocent, so who's the real kidnapper? And is Amanda really a killer, or is someone else responsible? And what happened to the missing writer?
The characters in this story were really interesting. Amanda is a real wacky one, and Ted is depressed and trying to find his way. I'm really curious to see where these characters go from here, if this is the start of a series.
Received this from NetGalley.com for review.
