After Anna
After Anna - Alex Lake

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Can you imagine a greater nightmare happen to a parent than losing their own child? I most certainly can't imagine, and I am not a parent yet. But if I were a parent, I would do anything in my power to get my child back to safety of my own arms, far away from the dangers that creep outside on the streets and are at some cases closer to us than we think. However, in this book, the fun does not begin when Anna gets kidnapped from her mother's arms, but when Anna gets returned back into her mother's arms. Suddenly everyone is suspect of the kidnapping, and it eventually turns out that the kidnapper is a lot closer that Anna's mother may think. The book was quite tense and it offered quite a lot of twists and turns, and let's just say that the ending was completely unpredictable.

"Crimson Lake" by Candice Fox
Crimson Lake - Candice Fox

Set in Cairns, the grim but gripping "Crimson Lake" tells the story of an investigation by two unusual private detectives, one a convicted murderer and the other an ex-policeman charged but not tried for the abduction and rape of a thirteen-year-old girl, into the disappearance and possible murder of an author of fantasy novels that have a cult following.

 

There aren't that many books set in "The Top End" of Australia and even fewer with such apparently unsympathetic main characters but Candice Fox manages to make the location and the people work to produce a compelling read.

 

Ted Conkaffey, the accused cop is interesting because he looks (very) guilty. He's been worn down by the process of being imprisoned and released without trial. He's lost everything from his former life, wife, daughter, reputation, friends. He has nothing left, not even a reason to see tomorrow. Yet you still can't be sure whether or not he did the things he's accused of.

 

Ted would be an easy person to dislike but he wins our sympathy, slowly, through his kindness to animals (a wounded goose and her goslings) his openmindedness about his convicted-murderer business partner, Amanda Pharrell and the courage with which he stands up to the two local cops who are determined to make his life a misery.

 

Tatto-wearing, bicycle-riding. afraid-of-no-one Amanda Pharrell is a wonderful creation. She manages to be full of life, sometimes, even joy, and yet is different in a way that reads as damaged.  Except for some paragraphs in the epilogue, we don't get inside her head yet her presence, her directness, her courage, even her compulsive rhyming dominates the book.

 

Together, Ted and Amanda make more sense than either of them do alone and that gives their story power.

 

The tropical environment becomes almost a character in the book: the constant humidity, the lurking crocs, the snakes, miles of emptiness, the forests and the beaches give a wild, other-things-are-possible-here feel to the book.

 

The intensity of Crimson Lake's main characters and its setting is amplified by having three plots tightly plaited together: Ted's case, Amanda's case, the disappeared author's case and spicing them with two unpleasant cops, an untrustworthy reporter, local vigilantes, freaky fans and an author with a secret life. 

 

All this made "Crimson Lake" a high impact thriller that was very satisfying to read. 

Sequel "Redemption Point" or "Redemption"  in the audiobook version is already out and a third book is planned.

 

I read "Crimson Lake" as my "Melbourne Cup Day" Book.

 

I listened to the audiobook version of "Crimson Lake", performed with muscular skill by Euan Morton. Click on the SoundCloud link below to hear a sample of his work.

If this is your first Melissa Foster book, please note that Finding My Girl is not a novel, a novella, or even a typical short story. It is a graphic companion booklet to the full-length contemporary romance novel, Love Like Ours, featuring Talia Dalton and Derek Grant. In Love Like Ours, one of the many ways Derek shows his love for Talia is through cute and loving sketches depicting their lives as they came together. Finding My Girl is a collection of those images, along with a couple of images that Jonah, Derek's father, had drawn for his wife, Eva. Within these pages you will also find heartfelt messages from Derek to Talia that are not found in the original novel.  As a bonus, the first chapter of Love Like Ours is included in the back of the booklet.
