When teenager Faith Appleyard is abducted from the street, a plastic bag placed over her head, and cable ties used to tether her hands, she believes she’s going to die, but though she’s very badly beaten, luck is on her side that day, when sirens from a police car in the locality stop the abductor in their tracks. The strange thing is though, she won’t press charges. Now why is that? The next victim won’t be so lucky though, and so begins another complex but riveting case for DI Adam Fawley and ...more

This is a cracking humdinger of an addition to Cara Hunter's outstanding DI Adam Fawley series set in Oxford. It might even be my favourite, although seeing how good the others were, I am not laying any bets on that just yet. It begins with Adam, and his wife, Alex, in a better place after the heartbreak and sorrow of losing their young son. Alex is pregnant, Adam is doing everything he can to make things as easy as they can be for her. However, this is crime fiction and their world is about to ...more

A modern police investigation thriller full of dark suspense and intrigue, with moral dilemmas that will rightfully propel this book to bestseller status. All the Rage is a crime drama that conjures a complex plot with crafted layers for puzzle solvers, facing surprise and misdirection at every turn.

Faith Appleyard is a teenager who was abducted in a van and brought to an allotment where she was physically abused with a bag pulled over her head and a clump of her hair dragged from the

I loved the previous three books in the Adam Fawley series so I was thrilled to receive this ARC and I was not disappointed. It is perfectly possible to read this novel as a stand-alone though. This case covers a some current issues such as gender reassignment and is handled very sensitively and with care. Young girls are being targeted and attacked. Faith Appleford fortunately is left alive but Sasha Blake is not so lucky. This intriguing case tests Fawley’s team and Adam in particular as it al ...more

EXCERPT: When the minicab driver first spotted the girl, he thought she was drunk. Yet another bloody student, he thought, getting pissed on cheap cider and staggering home at all hours. She was a good hundred yards ahead of him, but he could see she was lurching unsteadily from side to side. It wasn't until the car got closer that he realized she was actually limping. One strappy shoe was still on but the other had lost its heel. That's what made him slow down. That and where she was. Out on th ...more

Wow, what masterful storytelling! This was a multi-layered complex Gordian knot of a puzzle and I challenge anyone to pick the culprit, or culprits, in advance of the reveal. I felt like I was in one of those front loading washing machines - tumbled one way, then then other over and over and all that’s before the high speed spin cycle!

Teenager, Faith Appleford, is discovered by a minicab driver stumbling along the side of the road in a distressed state – muddy, clothes torn, one shoe missing, with marks on both wrists indicating that her hands have been tied. She refuses to go to the police or a doctor, so the driver takes her home, and then phones in the crime.

I have read and loved the other books in this series, so I was looking forward to engrossing myself in this instalment.

Faith is found wandering by a taxi driver, she had been kidnapped, pushed into a van, had a bag forced over her head and her hands bound with cable ties. She is terrified but manages to escape and is taken home by the concerned taxi drive. Strangely she does not want to press charges or talk to the police about what happened.

The driver was shocked to see the young girl staggering as if she was drunk; but what he found was far worse than that. At her insistence he drove her home but ignored her entreaties not to call police. Detective Inspector Adam Fawley knew they had to tread carefully, but the witness was concerned and that was enough for him. Faith’s ordeal was horrifying but baffling while Fawley and his team were struggling without her cooperation.

As the parallels to a case some twenty years prior started to a

I'd not read any Cara Hunter books when I got this one so I wasn't sure quite what to expect. This is a tale about a teenage girl who is found wandering in a distressed state by a taxi driver. She claims that it was just a prank but the story she tells suggests something rather different. She refuses to press charges so one of the first things is to find out why. When another girl goes missing the case takes on additional dimensions. Is this a se

The DI Fawley series has become one of my favourite police procedurals of late, the unique way that Hunter tells the story through various written interviews, tweets and maps gives these books a real time feel about them.
It makes them so addictive!

The case revolves around 15 year old Faith Appleford who'd been snatched off the street with a bag placed over head head and hands cabled tied together.

The difficulty for Adam Fawley and the team is that the crime is eerily similar to the 'The Roadsid

Detectives are trying to find out who had assaulted a teenage girl but neither the girl or her mother will make a complaint or tell the police what happend.
I did not realise that this was the fourth book in a series and I have not read any of the previous books. I found this storyline a little hard to follow.
Thank you to NetGalley and Penguin Books UK for my e-copy in exchange for an honest review.

The word suspenseful is an understatement for this brilliant book.
Another 5 star read by Cara Hunter full of twists, great character development and a riveting plot.
It is not only the twists and shocks that make this a 5 star book, but also the way the story is unraveled and the truth is revealed. The author doesn’t repeat herself and definitely does not make a fool of the reader.

A fiendishly well-worked all-singing all-dancing police procedural with a well established detective team.

Cara Hunter’s fourth novel to feature DI Adam Fawley and his team at Thames Valley Police is, in common with the second and third books, a cleverly convoluted and thoroughly gripping mystery. The series reads as close to a realistic police investigation as can be imagined with up-to-the-minute developments factored in as they arise, recognition of the plentiful legwork of the job and with th

This is book 4 in this series and the second book for me, I have now read book 2 and this one.
Initially, I was worried I wouldn't be able to follow along but that wasn't the case I think there is enough here that you can comfortably read this as a standalone novel.
Yes, there is some slight backstory revolving around DI Adam Fawley and his son's death but it is easily worked out and it didn't spoil my enjoyment having only read book 2 previously.

So we are already into the fourth book in the DI Fawley series. Can’t even begin to tell you how desperate I’ve been to read this. I have to admit I’m not sure if this can be read as a standalone and would probably recommend that you have at least read the first couple of books in this series before reading this one.

All I can say about this story is that it is one twisted read. I kept thinking we were being taken down one road when it comes to the case that Fawley and his team are working on, on

My first book by this author,an author who has been on my radar for a while.

A great book, I do have a great dis-advantage, as mentioned first book by this author, so I has NOT read the three previous books in the series, it took a while to get used to the regular characters/personalities of the Police team!

Plus I am an avid supporter of 4-5 British authors with police procedural books, that are so good, Angela Marsons, Robert Bryndza, Patricia Gibney, Mel Sherratt, Carol Wyer, Sharon Bolton.

Another absolute corker from Cara Hunter! I love this series so much and, as an Oxfordian, it appeals even more and the Oxford that is portrayed here is spot on. This is such a clever story and I love the way in which it's told, approaching it from every angle and from so many perspectives. It's extremely effective. The result is that this book is extremely difficult to put down and is utterly engrossing. Review to follow shortly on For Winter Nights. ...more

All The Rage is another fantastic release in the DI Adam Fawley series, continuing with the great characters in Fawley’s team and an intriguing storyline. A girl seems to have been abducted and assaulted, but doesn’t want to press charges. Then another girl disappears, and the team try to work out whether they’re connected, and what the first victim may have been hiding…

All The Rage starts with DI Adam Fawley and his team investigating an attack on a young girl who is found by a cab driver at the side of the road. The girl is unwilling to talk to the police at first insisting it was all just an April Fools prank. Upon doing some digging the team think it may be a hate crime and then link it to an old case of Fawleys especially when another girl goes missing.

I was lucky enough to get a signed copy of this book from Cara Hunter at Theakston Crime Festival in July, but because I don’t read my signed books I just lovingly look at them, touch them, smell them and reorganise them in colour and size order, I couldn’t read the book until it became available on Netgalley – so my thanks to the publishers for my copy.

The next DI Adam Fawley thriller always fills me with anticipation. A gripping case full of twists and revelations that keep you turning the pages is an absolute guarantee, and it is no different here as I was wrapped up in another complex police investigation. That said, I was not completely sold by how things ultimately played out this time around.

One of the best things about this series is its continuity. By now, I have got to know the principal characters very well, and it is fun to

This latest instalment in the Adam Fawley series is fast paced and full of twists. Certain parts of the novel were quite disturbing though. I think the author achieves a good balance between police procedure and the private life of the characters. A modern thriller that will keep you turning the pages.

Early review:
There are tons of police procedurals out there. Cara Hunter’s books have that something that make them stand out from the crowd. I say ‘something’, it’s more like some things as I’m not sure if it’s the compelling plots, gripping writing or just a feeling that the author is having a great time twisting your fears and messing with your mind as you read. Add to that a love for her city of Oxford where the books are set, and this series is a real wi
