The 'impossible to put down' Richard & Judy Book Club thriller pick 2018
Cara Hunter is a brilliant writer. This novel will take you into a world where you will find yourself lost and found. I love her style of narrative. The technique she employs with great effect works, and it is perfect for this type of thriller. Beg, borrow, steal, but preferably buy, this book today.
A pro, with admirable command of pace and rising tension * The Times * A breathtaking denouement * Sunday Times * Hunter keeps her readers guessing until the last page * Daily Express * I absolute loved how [Close to Home] was written - reminding me of the TV programme Broadchurch. A fast-paced, twisty-turny debut that had me dying to know whodunnit -- Mel Sheratt
