#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 . . .

This is the first book I’ve read in this series. Thank you to the publisher, author and BookishFirst. This is my honest and humble opinion. Unfortunately, I didn’t receive the two books until two days ago so I only had time to read this one. But I still understood what was going on. I feel so bad for Ted. Being married to a policeman for 27 years, I see the inner demons they live with and can only imagine what Ted must feel like knowing he is being wrongly accused, especially for a crime such as that. But he is still going strong fighting crime. Amanda is an interesting character, to say the least. I really liked her and think she brought a lot to the table. She was amazing. After reading reviews others have written, I can’t wait to read the previous book in this series. Sounds like an exciting read. For some reason, this reminds me of Patricia
Cornwell. I loved it!
