The Christmas holidays, and two children have just been pulled from the wreckage of their burning home in North Oxford. The toddler is dead, and his brother is soon fighting for his life.
Why were they left in the house alone? Where is their mother, and why is their father not answering his phone?
Then new evidence is discovered, and DI Fawley’s worst nightmare comes true.
Because this fire wasn’t an accident.
The next Adam Fawley novel from Cara Hunter is pacy and twisted, an addictive read with a strong emotional core featuring as it does a family in peril.
This series is growing in stature with each passing tale- No Way Out ups the ante, moving along the lives of its main protagonists whilst they investigate a heart wrenching case which just gets murkier with each new clue.
I like the interim news articles and emails, as well as the mixture of views which allows the reader to see the case from many angles including that of victim. It makes for a rich, well layered crime novel with a good dose of unpredictability.
Overall this is a series to watch. I’ll definitely be sticking with it, intriguing characters and clever plotting.
