When an Oxford student accuses one of the university’s professors of sexual assault, DI Adam Fawley’s team think they’ve heard it all before. But they couldn’t be more wrong.
Because this time, the predator is a woman and the shining star of the department, and the student a six-foot male rugby player.
Soon DI Fawley and his team are up against the clock to figure out the truth. What they don’t realise is that someone is watching.
And they have a plan to put Fawley out of action for good…
The Fawley novels are amongst my favourite series of books out there at the moment so to say I was excited to read this would be putting it mildly.
Once again Cara Hunter offers us a twisty and unpredictable plot, beautifully crafted with great writing and a compelling mystery element that keeps you turning the pages well into the early hours.
In The Whole Truth we have a lot of thought provoking socially relevant themes all wrapped up in an addictive story that is pacy and intelligent. All the usual suspects are here including of course our “hero” DI Adam Fawley- who will face one of his darkest moments during the course of a divisive investigation.
These work so well because the characters are always so very relatable, not just the ones we know well, but those who are passing through. You never know quite where events are going to lead you and it is excellent to read an author who can surprise you over and over again.
Very good indeed. The Whole Truth and all its predecessors come highly recommended by me.
