Close to Home by Cara Hunter





Last night, eight-year-old Daisy Mason disappeared from a family party. No one in the quiet suburban street saw anything – or at least that’s what they’re saying.

DI Adam Fawley is trying to keep an open mind. But he knows the nine times out of ten, it’s someone the victim knew.

That means someone is lying…
And that Daisy’s time is running out.

Introducing DI Fawley and his team of Oxford detectives, CLOSE TO HOME is the new crime series readers and authors are raving about.




Stunning!  5startr

This book delivers everything the blurb says and so much more! What an incredible read!!

When an eight year old girl goes missing from a family barbecue, DI Adam Fawley and his team begin investigating. This is a remarkable piece of writing, following not only what’s happening with the investigation squad but also the twitter feed #FindDaisy which gives the reader a whole new aspect of this case to consider. There’s obviously something in Adam Fawley’s past which is hinted at early on in the book and becomes clearer towards the end. There is excellent characterisation throughout this novel and this is a series which I will be making sure I don’t miss.

Missing child thrillers are never my first choice but this one is head and shoulders above the rest. It feels as if you are part of the police team as the reader doesn’t have any extra insight into what happened to Daisy. The twists and turns are so well written that you don’t actually realise they are happening. Each piece of evidence is weighed up and given due consideration and no matter how good your powers of deduction, believe me, you have no chance of working out where this one is going. The ending is gobsmackingly shocking!

My thanks to publisher Viking and NetGalley for the opportunity to read this one.  This is my honest, original and unbiased review.
