Read Hades Online Free - “Compelling . . . A chilling read.” —Sydney Morning Herald
Twenty years ago, two children were kidnapped and left for dead.
Raised by a master criminal, they grew up to become cops. Very unusual cops . . .
Homicide detective Frank Bennett has an intriguing new partner. Dark, beautiful, coldly efficient, Eden Archer is one of the most enigmatic colleagues Frank has ever worked with—that includes her brother Eric, who’s also on the Sydney Metro police force. All of them are tested to the core when a local man discovers a graveyard of large steel toolboxes lying at the bottom of the harbor. Each box contains a grisly trove of human body parts.
For Frank, the madman’s clues are a tantalizing puzzle. For Eden and Eric, the case holds chilling links to a scarred childhood—and a murderous mentor named Hades. But the true evil goes beyond the bloody handiwork of a serial killer…

He owns and runs a tip in Utulla, a fixer for the criminal underbelly of Sydney, with a fearsome r...

“Hades” is the debut novel by Australian author, Candice Fox. This is a dark psychological thriller, a crime thriller that is not for the faint hearted, dark, chilling and brutal. I thoroughly enjoyed it, the twists and turns were surprising and kept me guessing the whole way through.

Outstanding debut novel from Candice Fox. As interesting as her writing was, she is equally so, with a military career at the early age of 18, that apparently wasn't for her. I think this author might have many stories up her sleeve!
Set locally, from Camden to the city, via Kurrajong and Maroubra...

I am giving this one 4 stars although it is really more like 3.5.
I agree with all the reviews I have read that it is certainly well written and that it is gripping and exciting and very readable. However it is also unrealistic and way over the top. Of course that does not necessarily matter in a...

I am giving this read 3.5 out of 5 stars, but that doesn’t mean that I didn’t like it – I did, but I did have issues with part of it. It is an Australian novel which introduces a new police partnership – Frank Bennett and Eden Archer. It is a police crime thriller that is a little bit different t...

Hades Archer had his home in the most unusual of places – the junkyard was where he spent his days, and his nights. He controlled his men with an iron fist, whilst finding a peace and calm in sculpting the trash into treasure. His night time deeds were of a different nature; many things were brou...

3.5 - 3.75
I was very intrigued when I read the description for Hades. It’s a police procedural set in Australia that is based around three detectives. Two are a brother and sister - Eden and Eric Archer - who were raised by a murderer. Apparently, this rather unorthodox upbringing has installed i...

Candice Fox marches onto the scene and makes an instant name for herself with an Australian police procedural with a significant twist. Frank Bennett is the new man on the Homicide Squad, a recent transfer with a list of less than stellar items from his past. When paired with the independent Eden...

I don't know what to write...help!
The thing is, I've really got a visual mind. I can see things enfolding in my 'minds eye' and some of the things written about were gruesome. I expect those who read horrors have read worse than this, I'm just someone who hides behind a sofa when watching the fil...
