Blog Tour: No Way Out by Cara Hunter

Cara's novels never disappoint. She is one of those rare authors who as soon as I hear has another book coming out, I need to get my hands on. The third instalment of DI Adam Fawley was just as twisty and gripping as her last two. A quick note, this is one of those 'series' which you can read in any order, although I obviously recommend you read the first two in the series which are Close to Home and In the Dark, but that's up to you. They are all so addictive so they will definitely make for quick reading.

A devastating fire has broken out at a house in Oxford with two children being pulled from the scene, one critical and the other, gone. With no sign of the Mum or Dad and the police can't get hold of either of them. It quickly looks like the fire has been started deliberately, but by who and why?

Before Cara's books, I was never the hugest fan of police procedural books, they always seemed a bit cliched with a grumpy detective who had a drink problem. However Cara's characters have more substance, they feel more real. Their personals life stories are hard hitting but believable, as is the whole plot. What I particularly like about these stories are the interview transcripts, emails and the flash backs peppered throughout. There are no chapters in No Way Out, but these break the story up and create that fast paced vibe throughout the book that really does have you reading just one more page.

Once again the plot gave nothing away. There are plenty of hoodwinking distractions and goings on to keep you as far from guessing the outcome as possible. All without it becoming too farfetched or over the top.

I shall definitely be continuing to stick with the DI Fawley series! I can't wait to see what Cara has in store next!
