The sequel to Candice Fox’s stunning breakout novel Crimson Lake, which Lee Child described as ‘one of the best thrillers of the year’.
#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 . .
When former police detective Ted Conkaffey was wrongly accused of abducting thirteen-year-old 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 . . .

What a lively, wide-reaching interview. Now I understand a bit about how/why James Patterson collaborates with so many people and is able to churn out so many books. Candice certainly has a work ethic if she can get 3 books out in a year, and I wish her continued luck.
I haven’t read Crimson Lake yet but will do do before getting to this book.
Thanks again for a delightful interview Rose.
Have just finished Crimson Lake and loved it. Am just about to start Redemption Point, and can’t wait to rejoin Ted and Amanda – such quirky characters.
Have just finished Redemption Point and it was as good as Crimson Lake. Very satisfactorily ties up the cases (with a few surprises), and continues the brilliant chataceterisation of the damaged Amanda and the wrongly accused Ted.
Can’t wait for another in this series.
