Redemption Point




'There is no stopping Candice Fox . . . This is terrific crime writing with characters you'll be happy to read about again' Herald Sun

#1 New York Times bestselling author Candice Fox delivers a compulsive new crime thriller, which sees Ted Conkaffey once again teaming up with an unlikely partner – this time the father of the girl he was accused of abducting . . .

SHORTLISTED FOR THE NED KELLY AWARD 2018

When former police detective Ted Conkaffey is wrongly accused of abducting a teenage girl, he hopes the Queensland rainforest town of Crimson Lake will be the perfect place to disappear.

But nowhere is safe from the girl's devastated father. Dale Bingley has a brutal revenge plan all worked out – and if Ted doesn’t help find the real abductor, he’ll be its first casualty.

Meanwhile, on the beer-soaked floor of a roadside shack, two young bartenders lie dead. As the homicide investigation unravels, Ted and his unlikely ally Amanda Pharrell are brought in to assist on the case.

While Ted fights to clear his own name, their hunt for the killer draws them into a violent dance with evil.

Redemption is certainly on the cards – but it may well cost them their lives . . .
