Today I’m reviewing the fantastic “Close to Home”, by Cara Hunter.
About the book:
Someone took Daisy Mason. Someone YOU KNOW.
Last night, 8-year-old Daisy Mason disappeared from her parents’ summer 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 that 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 a pulse-pounding race against time and a penetrating examination of what happens to a community when a shocking crime is committed by one of its own.
8 year old Daisy Mason has disappeared from a summer party in her parents garden. DI Fawley and his team are called in to investigate.
I’m just going to come out and say it. I LOVED this book! My heart was in my mouth as I raced through the book, desperate to find out what had happened to poor Daisy. The twists and turns had me thrilled and chilled – and that ending – I didn’t see THAT coming!
I really liked the character of DI Fawley, and was very moved by his backstory. I liked all the other characters from the Police and thought they were well drawn and believable. The parents were awful – but even they were done well.
The other thing that I liked about this book is as well as the story itself, there were interview transcripts, Twitter feeds and Facebook feeds. I thought this was excellent and it seemed relevant.
It will be no surprise to learn I gave it a 5*. I’m looking forward to the next one!
