Publication Order of Detective Harriet Blue Books

with James Patterson

Candice Fox is a popular novelist from Australia, who is famous for writing mystery, crime fiction, thriller, and suspense books. She has won the Ned Kelly Award in 2014 for her novel titled Hades in the category of the best debut novel. Fox won the same award again in the next year for her second book, Eden. Apart from this, she has been shortlisted for the prestigious award in 2016, and for the Davitt Award for 2 different novels in 2015. Author Fox is particularly famous for writing the detective fiction series, Archer & Bennett. In writing the second crime fiction series of her writing career, Detective Harriet Blue, author Fox collaborated with the bestselling author named James Patterson. Fox was born in Bankstown, New South Wales, located near Sydney’s western suburbs. Author Fox belongs to a large family with many members. She has served for some time in the Royal Navy of Australia. Following this, she completed her study at the university level and also taught there for a brief period. Author Fox is the middle child of her parents. Her family is comprised of many adopted, pseudo, and half-siblings. Her father used to work as a parole officer, while her mother was an enthusiastic care taker of a foster care. As a child, author Fox used to hide around corners and listen to the tales of evil, madness, and violence that her father used to say to her older brothers and her mother from his work. She has spent a number of her Christmases by visiting the correctional facilities in Sydney along with her family.

Fox used to enjoy knocking at the windows of prison cells, eat fruitcakes made by the prisoners, and run around the yard. During her school vacations, author Fox liked to get involved in exploring free and open spaces like farms, cemeteries, and bushlands. Fox grew up to be a trouble maker and a cynical teenager. She says that she got involved in gothic and crime fiction writing in order to escape from her boring and strict home life. Author Fox had become so much engrossed in reading and writing about crime stories that it had become a habit for her to get in trouble for reciting Annie Rice books to her friends and scaring them. She used to constantly tell them stories related to the wealth of crime writers from Australia. Sometimes, Fox used to read out the violence and crime fiction stories in church and get punished for that. At the age of 18, author Fox enrolled herself in the Royal Navy as an officer, but she could not adjust herself to the military lifestyle. As a result, she left the Navy and began pursuing academia. Fox obtained 2 undergraduate and 2 post-graduate degrees. After that, she taught for a short period at the high school level. As of now, author Fox gives lectures at the Notre Dame University, Sydney, on the subject of creative writing. At the same time, she is also pursuing her PhD in the field of terrorism and literary censorship. Fox’s books have been published by the Random House publication in Australia. They are also available in multiple translations throughout the world. The Australian CWA has appreciated her work widely and has awarded her with 2 Ned Kelly prizes for the first two books of her writing career.

The Archer & Bennett series written by Candice Fox is comprised of a total of 3 books, which were released between the years 2014 and 2015. All the three books depict the lead characters as homicide detectives named Frank Bennett and Eden Archer. An initial book of this series is entitled ‘Eden’. It was released by the Kensington publishers in the year 2015. At the start of the story, Frank Bennett is introduced as a hardworking homicide detective, while Eden Archer is shown as the beautiful, dark, intriguing, and efficient partner of Frank Bennett. Most police partners work with loyalty, trust, and their desire to put criminals behind bars. But, Eden Archer’s style of working brings nothing but danger and darkness in Bennett’s life. Eden likes to catch the killers, but doesn’t believe in making them serve justice in a courthouse. The new case that arrives at her desk requires her to go undercover and find information about 3 missing girls. An important link between all the three victims is a distant farm where they used to go for playing and hiding. In such an investigation, Frank’s main role is to keep a check on his partner all the time. He feels that more than Eden Archer, her suspects need protection from her. In another case, Frank Bennett learns that someone is keeping a close watch on the activities of a reputed criminal named Hades Archer. He thinks that unmasking this stalker might be a good way to make himself useful while Eden Archer is away. But, for catching the stalker, Frank needs to look into the past life of Hades Archer, an act which can put everyone’s life in danger.

The next installment of this exciting series is called ‘Fall’. Published in 2015, this book features Eden Archer and Frank Bennett as the main protagonists once again. At the beginning of this book’s story, it is shown that with a little more try, Frank Bennett is able to forget sometimes that his partner from the Homicide Department, Eden Archer, is a moonlighting serial murderer. Thankfully for them, the recent case seems to be a nice distraction for both of them. They learn that someone is very angry at the beautiful people of Sydney, which has turned into many brutal outcomes. A predator lurks on the rain soaked jogging tracks of the parks in Sydney. This predator preys on the joggers who come out to jog during the night time. As Eden & Frank work with a great determination to solve this case, a different type of danger arises close to family. The new girlfriend of Frank Bennett, named Imogen Stone, has developed a fascination for cold cases. Subsequently, the latest project of Stone is about the vanishing of the 2 Tanner children around 20 years ago. This case brings Imogen straight to the door of Eden as she knows that Eden is the only person who could help her complete this project. Seeing the growing closeness of Stone with Eden makes Frank worried about the safety of her life. He knows that staying close to Eden can prove too dangerous for anyone. And he seems to be in no mood to let Imogen Stone fall in danger.

        Hi Candice: I hope you will continue the 2 Sisters Dectective Agency. The first book has left us hanging as to how they will carry on their Father’s business! The two different personalities are so very interesting. Rhonda’s relationship with the policeman is superb. Fun to imagine. Fingers crossed more books will be coming!

    Candace, I received the Crimson Lake novels as a birthday gift from my son. I’ve gone on to read all of your novels. You are brilliant! Thank you!

  5. Gary Becker: 2 years ago

    We finished the Harriet Blue series and realized that although Patterson’s book quality is mixed there are good ones because of quality authors like you who are the real book creators. We will get more of your work as we are more author oriented than genre oriented. Keep up the good work and thank you for your books

    • Graeme: 2 years ago

      That’s one thing with the way James operates; you can discover many great new authors that way 🙂

    I have become absolutely “addicted” to all of your (and in collaboration with James Patterson) book series’. I’ve read all of Harriet Blue, Crimson Lake and the Archer & Bennett series. Am now reading Gathering Dark and just purchased The Inn.

    My goodness, they are so good, I just can’t put them down. I live in outback Australia, so these fresh, fast moving, entertaining novels with great, likeable characters (with just a touch of humour) are just magic to me. Thank you!

  8. Phil Patterson: 3 years ago

    Conkaffey and Pharrell are great characters. Please continue this series

  9. Marie S: 3 years ago

    I just finished the last book in the Crimson Lake series and thoroughly enjoyed all three books. Complex and fascinating characters that are both damaged and utterly likeable, with great stories and plot twists—I hope you continue this series! Best of luck to you. 👍

    I have just finished reading the Crimson Lake trilogy. You are now one of my favorite writers of mystery and intrigue. The characters and the situations you put together in the books are just so entertaining and I can hardly put the book down once I start reading. It’s that great feeling you get when you’re reading and things are moving along so fast, you just can’t imagine what will happen next! Keep up the great work, Candace. You’re an entertaining, awesome author.
    Best to you, Down Under, Teresa
