#1 New York Times and Globe and Mail bestselling author Candice Fox delivers a compulsive new crime thriller with Gone by Midnight.

Crimson Lake is where people with dark pasts come to disappear—and where others vanish into thin air...

When Sara Farrow’s son goes missing from a locked hotel room, she frantically turns for help to Crimson Lake’s unlikeliest private investigators—disgraced cop Ted Conkaffey and convicted killer Amanda Pharrell.

Just the sort of twisted puzzle that gets Amanda’s blood pumping, the disappearance couldn’t have come at a worse time for Ted. He has just this one week with Lillian, the daughter he barely knows...but the clock is ticking for the lost boy.

Amanda and Ted’s search dredges up the area’s worst characters, and the danger they uncover could well put Ted’s own child in deadly peril.

At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Why did I add Gone by Midnight to my bookshelf?

I really enjoyed the first two books in this series and am eager to get back to it. The characters in the first two books were amazing and I was totally on board with the mysteries. It looks like I gave the second book in the series 5 stars which I don’t do all that often. I have had this book on my shelf for probably close to 2 years so it is time that I pick it up.

Life Update – I am spending today at my mother-in-law’s funeral so I don’t expect to be around. I am hopeful that things will begin to go back to normal tomorrow. Thank you for hanging in there with me.

What are your thoughts? Have you read this book?  Would you recommend it?

  1. Isn’t it interesting that in a series where you know you’ve enjoyed previous books, it’s still hard to find time to keep going in the series? If you like the first couple so much, maybe I should take a look too! Hope you find time to get to this one.

  2. I added this series to me wish list after reading your earlier reviews. Looks like another good one.

    Take care and sympathies as you and the family grieve and work out the bereavement tasks.
