I LOVE this series! When I got the chance to read GONE BY
MIDNIGHT didn't I hesitate, I had to read it straight away.
And WOW! The first
book was great, the second
was fabulous, this one is awesome!
Four children are left alone in the evening while their
parents are having a grand time dining in the restaurant at
the White Caps Hotel. They check the kids during the evening
and it's during one of the checkups that it's discovered
that one of the four boys are missing. CCTV shows no one
leaving the building matching the description and no trace
of the boy is found at the hotel. What happened to him? Ted
Conkaffey and Amanda Pharrell are called in after the mother
of the missing boy asks for him. But, can Ted and Amanda
find out what happened to the boy?
Candice Fox is such a fabulous writer. Her series Crimson
Lake is one that I can't recommend enough. Action,
humor, and tricky crimes. Not to mention that Ted Conkaffey
is an ex-cop whos mistake was being the last to be seen in
the place where a young girl was abducted. He lost all after
that, his family and his job. It doesn't matter that he was
released because of lack of evidence. The public has judged
him guilty. At his side, he now has PI Amanda Pharrell who
have spent years behind bars after she killed someone. This
unlikely duo now works together solving cases.
There is so much going on in GONE BY MIDNIGHT. Ted is having
his young daughter staying over for the first time and
Amanda has been dragged into a personal vendetta by a cop
who has a grudge. Meanwhile, they try to solve a very
complex case. I was hooked. GONE BY MIDNIGHT is the best
book yet and I can't wait to read the next one!
Crimson Lake is where bad people come to disappear - and
where eight-year-old boys vanish into thin air . . .
On the fifth floor of the White Caps Hotel, four young
friends are left alone while their parents dine downstairs.
But when Sara Farrow checks on the children at midnight, her
son is missing. The boys swear they stayed in their room,
and CCTV confirms Richie has not left the building. Despite
a thorough search, no trace of the child is found.
Distrustful of the police, Sara turns to Crimson Lakeâ€™s
unlikeliest private investigators: disgraced cop Ted
Conkaffey and convicted killer Amanda Pharrell. This
case is just the sort of twisted puzzle that gets Amandaâ€™s
For Ted, the case couldnâ€™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 areaâ€™s worst characters to find a
missing child. And the kind of danger he uncovers could well
put his own in deadly peril . . .
