Random House presents the audiobook edition of Crimson Lake by Candice Fox, read by Lani Tupu.
From the New York Times best-selling coauthor of Never Never comes an ingenious and edgy suspense novel that will keep you guessing to the very end....
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 number one. 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....
