But there’s something strange about Eden and her brother. Something he can’t quite put his finger on.

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.

Candice's novels Crimson Lake and Redemption Point were adapted into a major ABC TV series called Troppo.

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.
