Authors Candice FoxTania Chandler and Fiona Capp talk to Jacqui Horwood about their new novels – all with water as the scene of the crime – and much, much more.

In the case of Candice Fox’s latest novel, Crimson Lake (Penguin Random House), the action takes place in the steamy, croc-infested wetlands of Crimson Lake in Far North Queensland – a long way from Sydney where Fox and her previous three novels are based. Hades, Fox’s debut novel, won the Ned Kelly Award for Best First Fiction in 2014 and Eden, the sequel, won the Ned Kelly Award for Best Crime Novel in 2015, making her only the second author to win these accolades back-to-back. Hades was also highly commended in Sisters in Crime’s 2015 Davitt Award for Best Debut Crime Book. Her third novel, Fall, was published to critical acclaim in 2015. Never Never, written in collaboration with James Patterson, recently debuted as No. 1 on The New York Times best seller list.
