"Narrator Euan Morton's gravelly voice and Australian accent embody Ted...His excellent pacing and gripping delivery maintain tension." — AudioFile Magazine

Crimson Lake by Sydney-based, Ned Kelly Award-winning and #1 New York Times bestselling author Candice Fox is a thrilling contemporary crime audiobook set in Queensland, Australia — perfect for listeners who are anxious to take a trip Down Under.

How do you move on when the world won’t let you?

12:46: Claire Bingley stands alone at a bus stop
12:47: Ted Conkaffey parks his car beside her
12:52: The girl is missing . . .

Six minutes in the wrong place at the wrong time—that’s all it took to ruin Sydney detective Ted Conkaffey’s life. Accused but not convicted of a brutal abduction, Ted is now a free man—and public enemy number one. Maintaining his innocence, he flees north to keep a low profile amidst the steamy, croc-infested wetlands of Crimson Lake.

There, Ted’s lawyer introduces him to eccentric private investigator Amanda Pharrell, herself a convicted murderer. Not entirely convinced Amanda is a cold-blooded killer, Ted agrees to help with her investigation, a case full of deception and obsession, while secretly digging into her troubled past. The residents of Crimson Lake are watching the pair's every move . . . and the town offers no place to hide.

This program includes a bonus conversation with the author

Praise for Crimson Lake

"Narrator Euan Morton's gravelly voice and Australian accent embody Ted...Morton varies his delivery enough to differentiate between characters while staying firmly in character as Ted, a choice that works well with the story's first-person narrative. His excellent pacing and gripping delivery maintain tension ...and listeners will hope for more of Morton as Conkaffey." -AudioFile

"Two of the best times to pick up an audiobook are 1) when you want to get sucked into a great mystery, and 2) when you want to do a backstroke through an accent not your own. Candice Fox’s Crimson Lake series, set in the croc-infested north of Australia, lets you do both." -Paste Magazine, Best Audiobooks of 2018 (So Far)
