The Screen Guide

Based on the book CRIMSON LAKE by best-selling crime writer Candice Fox. When an ex-cop falsely accused of a disturbing crime escapes to the tropics of Far North Queensland, he finds himself entangled in a newly-formed PI agency run by an eccentric ex-con who served ten years for murder. By-the-book Ted Conkaffey and human whirlwind Amanda Pharrell mix like oil and water, and yet, as they set about unravelling the truth behind the strange death of a local inhabitant, a partnership which seemed doom from the outset slowly begins to take on another dimension - and in the process, both wayward souls are offered a chance at redemption.
