Think you know the story? Think again.
THE NEW UP-ALL-NIGHT THRILLER FROM THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER CARA HUNTER
She has everything at stake; he has everything to lose. But one of them is lying, all the same.
When an Oxford student accuses one of the university’s professors of sexual assault, DI Adam Fawley’s team think they’ve heard it all before. But they couldn’t be more wrong.
Because this time, the predator is a woman and the shining star of the department, and the student a six-foot male rugby player.
Soon DI Fawley and his team are up against the clock to figure out the truth. What they don’t realise is that someone is watching.
And they have a plan to put Fawley out of action for good…
The tables are very much turned in this book when a male student accuses their female professor of sexual assault. Usually when you come across this sort of storyline, it’s usually a female student and a male professor so my interest was well and truly piqued when I saw that it was the other way around.
I like how the story is set out where we see interviews with the accused and the person doing the accusing. There is also two storylines running throughout, one more closer to home to Fawley and his partner, Alex. With the other storyline, a case from the past is outlined through a podcast. It all made for a more engaging read that makes it stand out from others. I also love how the author does a brief summary at the beginning of who is who, not only does it help readers that may be joining this series further into it, but it is also a refresher for readers like me, who have read many books between the last one in the series and the latest one.
The Whole Truth is a perfect title for this story. It will have you questioning who is really telling the truth and my mind kept changing through out. Its great seeing the police doing what they do best with the cross examining as well as good old detective work. The pacing and tension was great and had me tearing through the pages for the conclusion which was well worth the read alone.
My thanks to NetGalley and Penguin Books for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
