CRIMSON LAKE Crimson Lake, Book 1

by | Read by Euan Morton

Mystery & Suspense • 12 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

Fleeing allegations of having committed a horrible crime, former police detective Ted Conkaffey moves to isolated Crimson Lake in Queensland to start over. Narrator Euan Morton's gravelly voice and Australian accent embody Ted, who is consumed by anger and paranoia. When Ted arrives in the isolated town, he partners with PI Amanda Pharrell, herself a convicted murderer, to solve the disappearance of author Jake Scully. Morton varies his delivery enough to differentiate between characters while staying firmly in character as Ted, a choice that works well with the story's first-person narrative. His excellent pacing and gripping delivery maintain tension even when the plot occasionally sags under the weight of its multiple storylines. This is a series opener, and listeners will hope for more of Morton as Conkaffey. E.C. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2018]
