All The Rage by Cara Hunter was the first book I started in 2020, and what a great way to read myself into a new decade. Because this police procedural series set in Oxford with it’s quirky format and engaging characters is one you need to get on board with if you are not already familiar with it.
Thanks to Penguin for giving me for giving me a copy of this book for review consideration. As always, no matter what the source of the book, you get my honest, unbiased opinion.All The Rage (DI Adam Fawley, #4) by Cara Hunter

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 the girl's co-operation. Is she hiding something, and if so, what? And why does Fawley keep getting the feeling he's seen a case like this before?
And then another girl disappears, and Adam no longer has a choice: he has to face up to his past. Because unless he does, this victim may not be coming back . . .
What a fab read. The cases in this book had me scratching my head hard, as I just couldn’t connect how everything fitted together. The more of this author’s books that I read, the more I realise how carefully crafted her plots are. With so many little twists, that I often have to stop reading and think hard about what I just read.
But apart from pauses to think about the plot, this book is one that when you start you won’t want to put down. Filled with short snappy chapters that often end abruptly leaving you hanging, intruiging police interviews, and old court transcripts, maps and even a birth cert, this was a book that I devoured as quickly as I could.
I loved also that we got to see a little more of the personal lives of the detectives, as I’m totally invested in that side of this series too. And what a cliffhanger we ended on, I’ll be needing the next book ASAP, as my stomach is already knotted with tension.
Who should read All The Rage:
Highly, HIGHLY recommended to those who love police procedurals, thrilling plots that grip you, and a modern-day Oxford setting. Fans of authors such as Shalini Boland, Lucy Dawson and Samantha Hayes should also enjoy.
Huge thanks to Penguin for asking me to join this tour, I’m honoured as I love Cara’s books, and if I help even one person discover them then that’ll make me very happy.
