We’re super excited about this next Book Club, and we think you’re going to love it.
This month we’ll be reading and talking about Redemption Point by Candice Fox.
Hades, Candice Fox’s first novel, won the Ned Kelly Award for best debut in 2014 from the Australian Crime Writers Association. The sequel, Eden, won the Ned Kelly Award for best crime novel in 2015, making Candice only the second author to win these accolades back-to-back. Also, in the 2015 Davitt Awards, Hades was Highly Commended in the debut category.
One of Better Reading’s favourite reads last year was the thrilling and chilling Crimson Lake by Candice Fox. The sequel, Redemption Point, has shaped up to be even better than the first.
Returning to our pages is former police detective Ted Conkaffey, who is still living in quiet Crimson Lake, but after what happened it’s not such a secret. Dale Bingley, the father of the girl he was accused of abducting, has found out where Ted is – and he’s still convinced of his guilt. A diabolical revenge plan is hatched, and if Ted doesn’t find the man who really did it, his life is in danger.

When former police detective Ted Conkaffey was wrongly accused of abducting thirteen-year-old 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 . . .
