No Way Out by Cara Hunter @CaraHunterBooks @penguinrandom


Book Description:


From the author of CLOSE TO HOME and IN THE DARK comes the third pulse-pounding DI Fawley crime thriller.

It’s one of the most disturbing cases DI Fawley has ever worked.

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.

It was murder.

My Thoughts:

No Way Out is the third book in the DI Fawley series and would definitely recommend at least reading the second book before reading this one as readers would definitely benefit from it.

After the cases in the first two books, the case that Fawley and his team find themselves working on seemed quite a straight forward one. I could feel myself slump a little bit as this is what has made this series so far is the complexity and how twisted the cases are. The further into the book I got though, things are definitely not quite as simple as they first appear and the twists and turns that I have come to love hit me full force and made my heart soar.

The story flicks between present day with the police working on the case and to brief parts in the past with the family who live in the house and the build up to the night of the fire. This gives the reader the chance to get to know the family better and I loved getting an insight into their family life.

As usual the author has the reader agonisingly waiting for more of Fawley and his home life. For me, finding out what was going on there was just as important as the case. Please, please, please don’t make us wait as long in the next one. I don’t think my heart can stand it!

No Way Out is yet another brilliantly dark and twisted read. I absolutely love how this authors mind works and she sure knows how to grab and hold her readers attention. From picking the book up, every time I put it down to get on with real life stuff, it’s all I could think about, wondering what else the author had in store for me and where the case was going to lead to next. A truly brilliant and clever crime series.

My thanks to Penguin Random House for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
