    15. If two Ned Kelly Awards and one short listing hasn t given you a big enough hint already, CRIMSON LAKE should absolutely confirm that Candice Fox is an Australian writer of immense ability.Always on the darker side, Fox s books incorporate clever plots with strong characters She has a particular ability to create unusual, unexpected partnerships, teaming up the unlikely, creating tension and unexpected affection and acceptance It s that idea of acceptance of the fringe dweller s, of the flawed a [...]

    19. This book offers readers everything we ve come to expect from Fox complex characters, a multilayered plot and an incredible sense of dark foreboding about what awaits us.Ted s story unfolds pretty quickly and when we meet him he s left his old life, with a cloud still hanging over his head He s pretty much hit rock bottom when his lawyer suggests he contact Amanda, a convicted murderer who s served her time and is now working as a private investigator.Given Amanda s history she has no problems p [...]

    22. When you read it in one day, it warrants 4 stars.Found the characters extremely relatable, and any book full of random crocodiles and geese is a good one.

    23. This was a really enjoyable, easy to read and follow Crime book It is the first time I have read one of Candice Fox s books and I am definitely keen to pick up another Actually I have already and have a copy of Never Never that is co authored with James Patterson The writing was done well I would almost say in the style of an Airport Novel , you know the ones where you pick it up because it looks interesting and need to kill some time and you are not disappointed, you don t need to think too har [...]

    28. Really really liked the mysteries surrounding Ted and Amanda and their characters However I did find the crime that they were trying to solve itself a little long winded and not as entertaining
