In The Dark by Cara Hunter was never going to linger long on my to-read after I was blown away by the first book in this series Close To Home. And all I can say is WOW, this series gets even better.In The Dark by Cara Hunter

DO YOU KNOW WHAT THEY'RE HIDING IN THE HOUSE NEXT DOOR?
From the author of the massive bestseller CLOSE TO HOME, comes the second pulse-pounding DI Fawley crime thriller.
A woman and child are found locked in a basement room, barely alive.
No one knows who they are - the woman can't speak, and there are no missing persons reports that match their profile. The elderly man who owns the house claims he has never seen them before.
The inhabitants of the quiet Oxford street are in shock. How could this happen right under their noses? But DI Adam Fawley knows that nothing is impossible.
And that no one is as innocent as they seem ...
First Line of In The Dark by Cara Hunter
“She opens her eyes to darkness as close as a blindfold.”
Things I love about In The Dark by Cara Hunter
- The police force. Not just DI Fawley, but all of them. I’m sucked up in to their personal lives and how that affects their. work lives And visa versa.
- The clever, clever plots. Well thought out, carefully spun, and then spun faster and faster till I felt dizzy. It made me read faster, as I knew I was never going to work it out on my own!
- The Oxford setting. I’d like even more of it, but the little snippets we get just delight me.
- The format. I love that we get maps, police transcripts, press releases and twitter updates. It just makes it so much fun and it feels so interactive. Like I’m right there at the police briefing, trying (unsuccessfully!) to solve the case.
All I can say is that I’m a huge fan of this series, and I’m very eager to get stuck into book 3 soon.
