    • Abstract:
      Summary: "Crimson Lake is where people with dark pasts come to disappear-and where others vanish into thin air... Four young boys are left alone in a hotel room while their parents dine downstairs. When Sara Farrow checks on the children at midnight, her son is missing. Distrustful of the police, Sara turns to Crimson Lake's unlikeliest private investigators-disgraced cop Ted Conkaffey and convicted killer Amanda Pharrell. For Ted, the case couldn't have come at a worse time. Two years ago a false accusation robbed him of his career, his reputation, and most importantly, his family. But now Lillian, the daughter he barely knows, is coming to stay in his ramshackle cottage by the lake. Ted must dredge up the area's worst characters to find the missing boy. The clock is ticking, and the danger he uncovers could well put his own child in deadly peril"-- Provided by publisher.

Booklist Reviews 2019 December #1

*Starred Review* Two years after being falsely accused of kidnapping and assaulting a 13-year-old girl, Ted Conkaffey believes he's still the most hated man in Australia. So when eight-year-old Richie Farrow goes missing from the Cairns hotel where he's staying with friends and their parents, Conkaffey is picked up by two cops and sends out an SOS to his partner, PI Amanda Pharrell. Turns out the boy's mother has specifically requested Conkaffey's help on the case, and he insists Pharrell join him, despite the bad blood between her and local police over the recent death of one of their detectives. This all happens just as Conkaffey is preparing for a visit of his nearly three-year-old daughter, Lillian, so he's torn between being a dad to the daughter he dearly loves and finding someone else's missing son. In her third Crimson Lake novel (after Crimson Lake, 2018, and Redemption Point, 2019), Fox ramps up the suspense, leading to a climactic scene in a crocodile-infested swamp. Compelling plot aside, it's the humanity of both Conkaffey and the appealingly eccentric Pharrell that lifts this well above the standard suspense thriller. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.

When eight-year-old Richie Farrow goes missing from his hotel room while on vacation in Crimson Lake, Queensland, in Australian author Fox's intense third Crimson Lake novel (after 2019's Redemption Point), his mother, Sara, asks Ted Conkaffey, a former Sydney homicide detective, to help find Richie. The local police reluctantly work with Ted, who was once a suspect in a child's attempted murder, and his quick-witted partner, Amanda Pharrell, a convicted killer who served eight years in prison. As Amanda and Ted question witnesses and suspects, they discover that many of them are less than truthful, leading the pair to consider a myriad of scenarios to explain Richie's disappearance. Complicating their investigation is Ted's decision to look after his two-year-old daughter for his ex-wife and a budding relationship with his veterinarian. Quirky, no-nonsense characters complement the suspenseful plotting, which includes a multitude of twists. Readers will look forward to seeing more of Ted and Amanda. Agent: Lisa Gallagher, DeFiore & Co. (Mar.)
