Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Redemption Point by Candice Fox, read by Lani Tupu. 

From the Sunday Times number one best-selling author comes the thrilling second instalment in the Crimson Lake series. 

In a dark roadside hovel called the Barking Fog Inn, the bodies of two young bartenders lie on a beer-sodden floor. Only the nighttime animals in the surrounding forest were close enough to hear their screams. 

Crimson Lake’s resident private detectives are hired to take on the case. Disgraced former police detective Ted Conkaffey and convicted murderer Amanda Pharrell are uneasy allies working alongside DI Pip Sweeney on her first homicide investigation.

For Ted, a new case serves as a welcome distraction from his fight to clear his name over the abduction of a teenage girl.

For all three, 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....

Very Different

Absolutely loved this story, it is so different from the usual detective fiction It took me a wee while to get used to the style of storytelling and the narrator, but once I got into the story and warmed to the narrator's gruff voice, I was hooked. The main character, ex-police officer Ted, has been wrongly and cruelly accused of a ghastly crime committed on an underage girl, though never convicted, and now it's a case of "no smoke without a fire" as he tries to clear his name. He's a big kind teddy bear of a man who's fled to the far north of Australia to try and find some peace, where he does some private detective work with Amanda, a time-served murderer (yes, it's complicated, but fun!).
The story is sad in places, and laugh-out-loud in others, and makes for a really good listen. I enjoyed it so much I'm now listening to the latest in the series, and loving it, too.
Missed the first book in the series, but look forward to listening to that next!
