'If you like great thrillers, you'll love Candice Fox!' Lee Child

Most police duos run on trust, loyalty and the desire to see killers in court. But Detective Frank Bennett's partner, the enigmatic Eden Archer, has nothing to offer him but darkness and danger.

Eden doesn't mind catching killers – but it's not in the courthouse where her justice is served.

Now she is about to head undercover and it’s up to Frank to watch over her.

However, as the darkness around Eden gathers, Frank begins to ask himself: is Eden saving lives, or taking them?

Candice Fox

Candice Fox is the author of twelve crime novels and the winner of three prestigious Ned Kelly Awards. In fact, she is the only author to have been shortlisted for that award for every single novel.

A meticulous researcher, Candice has interviewed a serial killer on Death Row, been to prison three times (for work purposes) and while on honeymoon in the US took a road trip to famous crime scenes looking for clues. She has also dined with a former President of the United States, filmed a cameo role in her latest screen adaptation and, as a volunteer for WIRES, has rescued countless wild animals.

She lives in Sydney.

A sizzling page-turner.
