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.

News And Adaptations
I loved the series (but it’s definitely a pay attention show not a background watch show): The Explosive Dare Me Finale That Almost Wasn’t
Tana French has a Pandora station that offers 80+ handpicked songs and 30+ minutes of exclusive commentary–and she’s working on a new book about an American detective retired in Ireland!
