Praise for In the Dark

“A gripping suspense novel about misguided assumptions and secrets hidden in plain sight . . . its final destination is anything but expected.” —Bustle

“The second in what will hopefully be a long-running series . . . Just as engrossing and complex as [Close to Home].” —CrimeReads (The Most-Anticipated Crime Books of 2019)

“Arresting and unnerving . . . Hunter exposes human frailties such as social and governmental missteps and policemen’s personal mess-ups while celebrating the essential humanity of those sworn to serve and protect. Readers will eagerly await Fawley’s next outing.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“[Hunter] gradually unwind[s] a case that is much more complicated that it initially appears. This slow-­burning procedural builds with tension as the narrative moves through several cunning twists, offering fans a pleasing follow-up to the first book in the series, Close to Home.” —Library Journal

“A tense exploration of manipulation and betrayal . . . A solid psychological thriller with carefully developed characters and disturbing, cleverly masked revelations that will appeal to fans of Tana French and Sophie Hannah.” —Booklist

“Your next riveting, twisty read!” —Shari Lapena, New York Times bestselling author of The Couple Next Door

In the Dark kept me up into the late hours. Clever and wonderfully complex.” —Jane Corry, bestselling author of My Husband’s Wife

“A classy, agile, fresh, unpredictable and utterly compelling gift of a book: hats off!” —Nicci French, author of the Frieda Klein series

“This a real gripper of a read and hugely satisfying.” —Peter James, author of the Roy Grace series

Praise for Close to Home

“This well-written psychological drama will keep you guessing until the very end.” —Book Reporter

“[A] maze-y, gripping story.” —Ian Rankin, New York Times bestselling author of the Inspector Rebus series

Close to Home is an utterly immersive story that pulls you into the heart of a search for a missing child. Compulsive, with an ending you will not see coming.” —Emma Kavanagh, author of After We Fall

“An amazing, fast-paced thrill ride and one of the best crime thrillers I have ever read! An exciting plot combined with top-quality writing—just perfect!” —Kathryn Croft, author of The Girl with No Past and While You Were Sleeping

“Great characters, engrossing story, and a twist at the end I did not see coming.” —Marika Cobbold, author of Frozen Music

Close to Home hit the ground running and didn’t stop right until the final page. . . . The last [twist] was a genuine stroke of genius . . . told in a unique, modern way that sets the bar for new crime writers. . . . The last time I felt that excited by a book was A Kind Worth Killing.” —John Marrs, author of When You Disappeared and The One

“This book won’t let you off the hook. Once you open it and start reading, forget about doing much else at all.” —Adèle Geras, author of Troy

“[I] finished Close to Home in one sitting! Such a cleverly written, chilling, and twisty read.” —Nuala Ellwood, author of My Sister’s Bones
