No Way Out by Cara Hunter makes it 3 in a row for this author. A hat trick of puzzling mysteries with red herrings and curve balls. I know I’m mixing up all my metaphors here but I’m just trying to impress on you how much I love this series.

DID YOU SEE ANYTHING ON THE NIGHT THE ESMOND FAMILY WERE MURDERED?
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 on No Way Out by Cara Hunter
We are reunited with the team of complex, clever, hard-working detectives that I have come to know individually. I’m totally engaged in their personal lives as well as their professional ones. And each book just makes me like them even more. Even roguish Quinn. Watching them cope with everyday life problems, and trying to keep their own issues out of the workplace is just very addictive. Especially when the lines get blurry.
This book features a horrific house fire and every answer the police uncover just seems to throw up more perplexing questions. I kept guessing, and re-evaluating as the plot developed. The storylines are dark and Cara Hunter doesn’t hold back on the gristly detail.#NoWayOut by @CaraHunterBooks makes it 3 in a row. A hat trick of puzzling mysteries with red herrings & curve balls.

Then the gorgeous Oxford setting elevates this series even for me. As does the format of the book which includes police reports, newspaper articles, and social media commentary.
Basically all I want to say is this series is fab, read them and see. They can be read out of order, but I’d still recommend reading in series order (Close to Home, In The Dark and then this one). Just because the detectives personal lives are such an integral part of the books.
