When a body is found in a farmhouse in a gruesome state, DI Adam Fawley is one of the first on the scene. The murder leads Fawley to a convoluted investigation from the past, and a family torn apart by a devastating crime involving the disappearance of a child.
Can Fawley piece together the facts of history with the clues in the present? Sometimes the truth is the hardest answer to face up to…
Cara Hunter has done it again! Hope to Die is another thrilling and gripping police procedural murder mystery. As always, the given synopsis barely scratches the surface of the story and the full picture is multi-faceted, complex and heartbreaking, revealed layer by layer, twist by shocking twist.
Cara Hunter‘s signature style – including police interview transcripts, court documents and medical reports along with Fawley’s informal, conspiratorial narration – give the reader the feeling of being ‘one of the team’ and of trying to solve the mystery alongside the characters. This unique set up and incredible storylines, unbelievably inspired by real events, make the Fawley books unmissable. I was torn between racing to the end and trying to make it last more than a couple of days!
I already can’t wait for the next book and am really hopeful for the upcoming TV adaptation. Thank you to Penguin Books (UK) for the ARC of Hope to Die.
