Crimson Lake Publisher's Summary

From the award-winning author of Hades and Eden comes an ingenious and edgy thriller that will keep you guessing to the very last minute....

It's 12.46 p.m. Thirteen-year-old Claire Bingley stands alone at a bus stop. At 12.47 p.m. Ted Conkaffey parks his car beside her. At 12.52 p.m. 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....
