The first girl came back.
The next might not be so lucky.
History doesn't repeat itself. Does it?
A distressed teenage girl is found on the outskirts of Oxford. The story she tells is terrifying: grabbed off the street, a plastic bag forced over her head, then driven somewhere remote and subjected to an assault.
DI Adam Fawley is doing the best he can to investigate, but the teenager refuses to press charges. All he can do is try to ignore the sickening feeling he's seen something like this before...
But when another girl goes missing, Fawley knows his time is running out.
Because if he ignores the past any longer, this girl may not be coming back.
I have read all the DI Fawley books and absolutely loved them all, and I loved this one too, but it's not quite on the same high level. Don't get me wrong, I really enjoyed it but I think my expectations of Cara Hunter's books are so high that it's just impossible to keep reaching those heights every time.
There were twists and turns, engrossing characters, a good compelling story, the same police officers that feature in the other books, great writing, in fact everything I love about these stories.
It's a stand alone story, and if you haven't read any before, the characters back stories can easily be picked up.
I will still be eagerly waiting for the next storyline in the DI Adam Fawley series!
