Where do I start with this book…?? It’s been a long time since I read a really good police procedural type book. Thank you Cara Hunter for reminding me of how good they can be if really done well – and how much I love this genre! My mind was so busy throughout the whole time I was reading this as I flitted between theories and hypotheses of who might have been behind the crimes. A good book keeps you guessing and has you kicking yourself mentally when it takes an unexpected twist or turn.
This is one of those books where I can’t give it full justice in a review because it will give away quite a bit. But Cara Hunter carefully handles current themes, hate crimes, jealousy, family, gender and more in this book whilst also describing very realistic and carefully researched police procedures. I absolutely love the way it’s written – short snappy chapters from different characters perspectives that almost ALWAYS end on a cliff hanger.
I should also add, I’ve never read anything by Cara Hunter before – this is the first book! Thanks to NetGalley I received a free advanced copy in exchange for an honest and impartial review. This is book #4 in the DI Adam Fawley series and I can safely say that whether you’ve read the series or not, this book will still make perfect sense and can absolutely be a standalone. However, if you’re anything like me you’ll finish this and be desperate to go and read the others now!
History doesn’t repeat itself. Does it?
A distressed teenage girl is found on the outskirts of Oxford. The story she tells is terrifying: grabbed off the street, a plastic bag forced over her head, then driven somewhere remote and subjected to an assault.
DI Adam Fawley is doing the best he can to investigate, but the teenager refuses to press charges. All he can do is try to ignore the sickening feeling he’s seen something like this before…
But when another girl goes missing, Fawley knows his time is running out.
Because if he ignores the past any longer, this girl may not be coming back.
