A teenage girl is found wandering the outskirts of Oxford, dazed and distressed. The story she tells is terrifying. Grabbed off the street, a plastic bag pulled over her face, then driven to an isolated location where she was subjected to what sounds like an assault. Yet she refuses to press charges.

DI Fawley investigates, but there's little he can do without t

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

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

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.

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 wo

I was so excited to receive a copy of All the Rage by Cara Hunter as I loved her previous books. This is the 4th in series and wow the quality of her writing does not falter. This is another gripping page turner, that caught my attention from the very first page.
Faith is on the way to school when she is kidnapped and then brutally attacked. She is picked up by a taxi driver, distraught but, she doesn’t want to press charges. Then another girl Sasha goes missing. DI Fawley sees the details

I would like to thank Netgalley and Penguin UK for an advance copy of All the Rage, the fourth novel to feature DI Adam Fawley of the Thames Valley Police Force.

When teenager Faith Appleton is found wandering the streets it is obvious she has been attacked but with little to go on and an initially unwilling victim the investigation doesn’t get very far. When another teenager, Sasha Blackford, goes missing DI Fawley can’t help but see parallels to a past case.

This was another fantastic instalment in the DI Adam fawley crime series set in Oxford.

I absolutely loved all three books in the series so far and this one was no exception.

I really love how multi media elements are used in this book series. They get more and more creative in each book.

I think the plot was really strong. I found myself constantly guessing as the story unfolded trying to figure the ending out, but I definitely didn't see it coming.

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.

This is the 4th book in what is becoming my favourite police procedural series and starting this book is like sitting in your most c

Oh my goodness, where do I start!
Cara Hunter is one of my absolute favourite authors. With this fourth instalment, in the DI Adam Fawley series, she did not disappoint!
I don't know how she does it, but right from the very beginning, she had me hooked.
The story begins with a girl found wandering the streets in a clear state of distress and it is obvious that she has been through something terribly traumatic, although she doesn't want to discuss it or press charges.

‘The first girl came back. The next might not be so lucky.’

DI Fawley is back! A girl is found wondering the streets, confused and in a bad condition. Then, a few days later another girl is reported missing. But why does Fawley feel that there are too many familiarities with a previous case? When nothing is straight forward, how long will it take to crack the case?

I love this series so much! Cara Hunter really knows how to pace a thriller, while keeping the tension high an

This is Cara Hunter’s fourth book but you don't have to have read the others (although you should). I loved her debut novel Close to Home and this is every bit as good. It’s everything I want in a crime novel. For starters, it’s a solid police procedural focusing on the team work that’s needed to solve a murder, delivering the same kind of satisfaction as a great TV drama.

Moreover it delivered in a way that’s compulsively readable: it balances multiple strands and is full of mini cliffhangers that

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 se

I absolutely love Cara Hunter’s books and was so excited to read her new release - and it certainly didn’t disappoint!

Right from the opening page, Cara Hunter manages to hook you in. This book, her fourth in the series, is very current and in keeping with today’s society. She touches upon many challenges and issues teenagers/young adults are dealing with today and mixes it with a tense and thrilling ride of emotions. The use of Twitter feeds and social media emphasises this as well as incorpora

I’m a big fan of Cara Hunter’s books - I love a good police procedural and these are among the best.

A young woman, fashion student Faith Appleford, is found stumbling along the road by a taxi driver; it’s clear something awful has happened to her, but Faith denies being attacked and refuses to speak to the police. Adam Fawley and his team suspect there’s more to the situation than meets the eye, which indeed quickly proves to be the case. When another girl goes missing in similar circumstances,

All the Rage is part 4 in the DI Adam Fawley series, and I have to say, after not reading any of the previous books, my enjoyment or understanding of the characters and the plot was not affected at all. This was a cracking read. Right from the start where a young girl is picked up following an attack, but she’s reluctant to involve the police. So there’s lots of questions; why doesn’t she want to involve the police, was it a prank like she suggests, and what is she hiding. But then the plot adva ...more

Although crime is my favourite genre, I find it incredibly hard to find authors that match up to my admittedly exacting standards, Many thrillers are too silly and far-fetched, while my preferred police procedurals can be too plodding or with too much emphasis on the personal dramas of the investigative team. Discovering Cara Hunter, then, was like an answer to my prayers: a police procedural, but properly gripping and well written, with the pacing of a thriller yet always within the realms of p ...more

But this one starts with a young girl called faith who gets attacked then another young girl called Sasha gets attacked and dies it brings similarities to a case that Adam worked on about 20 years ago and everyone starts yo wander if the person who was blamed and put in prison was really responsible or do they have a copy cat or is it some ...more

4 books in and Cara Hunter has moved to my favourite author of police procedurals - yes, even overtaking Michael Connelly. They feel so real, like we are looking over the shoulder of the entire investigations every step of the way - including dead ends and false leads. The integration of social media comments in response to news reports is a feature I really like.

We have a likeable lead character in DI Adam Fawley, though this one features his colleagues in a larger quantity than the past novel

Love Cara Hunter and this current book did not disappoint.

What I really liked about this was the author giving us a little more story surrounding Adam Fawley's personal life as well as the current case he is dealing with. We also learnt a little more about the team around him and their characters which draws the reader in more.

The first case is Faith a girl who was attacked and does not want to press charges. Something tells the team to follow up on this and it all starts from here. Then anoth

Faith is clearly distressed and has been assaulted, yet refuses to co-operate with police. DI Fawley can’t ignore the similarities between this case and a case from years ago and when a similar crime is committed he is forced

Cara Hunter is the only crime/thriller author i've read where each new installment lives up to the previous one; in fact I think her books just keep getting better and better, and each one leaves me with chills. This one was no different and I was utterly hooked as soon as I started this book. Cara Hunter manages to write a really gripping police procedural drama about horrific crimes but it never seems outlandish and always seems to be within the realms of possibility.

I’ve been checking NetGalley every day since May to see if this was available to receive as an ARC. So I was over the moon when it was finally there one day, and my request was approved!
It was so worth the wait, this was back on par with books one and two in the series and utterly fantastic!
This has the same formula as the previous books in the series whereby there are no chapters. This really helps you move through the book at a fast pace. I kept saying “I will just read this small

A tightly plotted crime thriller that follows DI Adam Fawley in his team as they investigate reports of young girls being abducted from the streets in horrific circumstances.
Unlike some police procedurals All The Rage places the reader in the middle of the action, and I felt like l was watching the investigation in real time with twists and turns as new information comes to light. I liked the use of different forms of information such as chat screenshots and court and police interview transcrip

A teenage girl is snatched from the street, a plastic bag placed over her head, pushed into a van, driven to a remote site and assaulted. She doesn't want to press charges and this is just the first of many questions in this intricate story. When a second girl goes missing, Adam Fawley must not only investigate this crime but must also look at a past case with very similar circumstances. Did he get the right man or not? More questions, more twists, and turns in a complex but compelling plot. ...more

‘All the Rage’ is the latest novel in the DI Adam Fawley series, set in Oxford, and in this one the crimes that he is investigating are horrible reminders of a past case that continues to haunt him, for very good reasons.
One of the strengths of the tale is that the identity of the perpetrator of vicious attacks on two teenage girls is not easy to deduce, thanks to Cara Hunter’s meticulous plotting and careful structuring. A big tick as far as I am concerned!

As I said in a previous review, I’m a huge fan of Cara Hunter’s Adam Fawley series, and was really excited to get an early copy through Netgalley of her third book. Of course, the problem with getting an early copy is having to wait extra long for the next in a series, which means waiting until December for number four. Luckily for me the Netgalley gods took pity on me, giving me access several months early – and if this means next time I’ll may need to wait fifteen months that’s a consequence w ...more
