When former detective Ted Conkaffey is wrongly accused of abducting a teenage girl, he hopes the Queensland town of Crimson Lake will be the perfect place to disappear.
But nowhere is safe from the girl’s devastated father. Dale Bingley has worked out a brutal revenge plan – and if Ted doesn’t help find his daughter’s real abductor, he’ll be the first casualty.
Meanwhile in a nearby roadside hovel, the bodies of two young bartenders lie on the beer-sodden floor. As a homicide investigation unravels, Ted and his unlikely ally private detective Amanda Pharrell are brought in to assist on the case.
While Ted fights to clear his own name, their hunt for the killer will draw them into a violent dance with evil.
Redemption is certainly on the cards – but it may well cost them their lives…
Steeped in tension, REDEMPTION is an absorbing crime thriller from an award-winning writer which will hold you in its grip to the final page.
A.K.A. “Redemption Point” is the follow up of “Crimson Lake” and is an absolute joy to read. Set in Queensland, Australia (it’s a refreshing new setting) and you’ll get a good feeling about these surroundings since Fox expertly describes them.
Both main characters are not perfect but they seem to interconnect together. The whole read is pleasant, there’s no slow areas in the book neither are there boring passages. On the other hand there’s nothing which jumps out either; it’s a pleasant, rainy weekend read and that’s it.
