#1 New York Times bestselling author Candice Fox delivers a compulsive new crime thriller in Redemption Point.

When former police detective Ted Conkaffey was wrongly accused of abducting Claire Bingley, he hoped the Queensland rainforest town of Crimson Lake would be a good place to disappear. But nowhere is safe from Claire'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, in a dark roadside hovel called the Barking Frog Inn, the bodies of two young bartenders lie on the beer-sodden floor. It's Detective Inspector Pip Sweeney's first homicide investigation - complicated by the arrival of private detective Amanda Pharrell to 'assist' on the case. Amanda's conviction for murder a decade ago has left her with some odd behavioural traits, top-to-toe tatts - and a keen eye for killers . . .

For Ted and Amanda, 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 . . .

How I love this series! I. Love. This. Series. I love how Ted and Amanda accept each other’s quirks. Ted’s complete acceptance of Amanda, exactly as she is, forms the basis of a strong connection between the two, and has become a friendship that they both depend on in equal measure. I laughed at Ted's description of Amanda: that while she can be "brilliant in the throes of a case," she is also "as annoying as a poke in the eye in equal measure". That's Amanda in a nutshell!! I loved Ted's conversion of a child's playhouse into a house for his geese! Ted and his geese never fail to make me smile. I have to admit that early on I was fairly certain who had killed the two young bartenders. I found myself talking to the book, saying "Look there Why aren't you looking there??? Ha! You know what? I couldn't have cared less that I had pretty much had it figured out. I'm fascinated by these characters, no matter what the circumstance. I absolutely cannot wait to read Gone by Midnight!!

Best book of 2019! Absolutely riveting! There's some heavy stuff going on in this series, but with a cast of quirky characters it doesn't get too dark. The writing is excellent, with a steady pace. Ted has been found guilty (in the court of public opinion), for a heinous crime against a child. Except for a smattering of people who believe in his innocence, he is vilified wherever he goes. So engrossing, I was anxious for Ted to be vindicated, and could not stop reading. Although you don't have to read the first book, Crimson Lake, why wouldn't you, it's fantastic too! I re-read Crimson Lake and did a back to back binge-fest and loved every second. Flawless!

Loved this sequel, especially having read the first novel Crimson Lake. Looking forward to this strange couples next adventure.
