APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
In the first part a planned series, Cara Hunter introduces us to emotionally scarred Detective Inspector Adam Fawley as he leads the search for eight-year-old Daisy Mason, who’s gone missing from her suburban Oxfordshire home. The story moves at a riveting pace; our perceptions and suspicions changed with every new revelation about Daisy’s family—not least during the final flurry of stunning twists. Hunter uses tweets and Facebook posts to give the novel an engagingly modern feel and to examine how firestorms of accusation and rumor can spread on social media and potentially influence the outcome of a case.

Closer to Home
It took me a while to get into this book, it wasn’t an instant paper turner. Yet, one evening, the story gripped me and couldn’t put the book down until I’d it. It kind of messed with my sleep that night.... I think it was worth it.
I was hooked. I don’t read a lot but found the story line kept moving and me thinking. I’ve found another writer to follow.
....I really really didn’t see that one coming!
Read it in less than a day...page turner does not even start to describe the anticipation of what I’ll happen next and how it will weave into the plot. When can I get the next book by Cara Hunter?!
