 Special guest MC is popular presenter and author Mary-Lou Stephens. 

About the author

Candice is the author of five books including FallHadesEden and Never Never with James Patterson. 

Her first novel, Hades won the Ned Kelly Award for best debut in 2014 from the Australian Crime Writers Association. The follow-up book won best crime novel in the Ned Kelly 2015 Awards. 

She began collaborating with best-selling author James Patterson in 2015. A prequel novella, Black and Blue as part of the James Patterson BookShots series was released June 2016. Their first title Never Never, set in the Australian outback, has just been released. 

About the book

Crimson Lake is an edgy suspense novel set in the crocodile infested wetlands of Far North Queensland.

12.46: Thirteen-year-old Claire Bingley stands alone at a bus stop
12.47: Ted Conkaffey parks his car beside her
12.52: The girl is missing . . .

Six minutes – that’s all it took to ruin Detective Ted Conkaffey’s life. Accused but not convicted of Claire’s abduction, he escapes north, to the steamy, croc-infested wetlands of Crimson Lake.

Amanda Pharrell knows what it’s like to be public enemy number one. Maybe it’s her murderous past that makes her so good as a private investigator, tracking lost souls in the wilderness. Her latest target, missing author Jake Scully, has a life more shrouded in secrets than her own – so she enlists help from the one person in town more hated than she is: Ted Conkaffey.

But the residents of Crimson Lake are watching the pair’s every move. And for Ted, a man already at breaking point, this town is offering no place to hide . . .
