Very readable, and enjoyable (if that's the right word for a novel about a situation that is just -- mild Spoiler Alert -- so very sad), but I think I'm developing resistance to some of Hunter's signature moves. What seemed fresh and interesting in Books 1 and 2 of the DCI Adam Fawley novels begins to grate here, in Volume 3. I'm lookin' at you, multiple and repeated, and somewhat unnecessary shifts of perspective. And don't try to come the innocent with me, occasional pastiches of news reports, complete with sidebar headlines, social media comments and know-it-all trolling ... What seemed fresh and interesting before (and narrative strategies that she might grow into, and find increasingly interesting ways to use) have now, it seems to me, settled into just a quirky things that she does to fill the pages until, inevitably, the Not-Quite-As-Clever-As-They-Think-They-Are detectives finally put two and two together, and arrive at something other than 5.

Having said that, one thing I really liked in this novel is the way that Hunter faces up to the fact that her detectives aren't infallible seers who take one look at the evidence, and nail the perp. It's pretty well a cliche that modern detectives have to be "troubled," but oftentimes, writers don't allow the Trouble to get in the way of the detective's genius. Here, Hunter confronts the fact that "trouble" may mean distraction -- and a tendency to read the evidence through the lens of that trouble, and come to entirely the wrong conclusions. The flashback scenes are used cleverly showing how, again and again, evidence has been completely misinterpreted.

Like everything else in this case, what's on the surface may not be a superficial as it seems. ( )

Yet another good read!

Even though it wasn’t as good as the previous book, it was filled with twists right till the end. Every time I made a guess, the author introduced another twist, which would take the entire plot to another direction.

As the series progressed, I have really begun to enjoy DI Adam Fawley and his team. Each of the team members have been very well written and characterised. I enjoyed how the author includes some of the events of the past along with current investigation procedure to make the reading experience even more exciting.

This concerned a house fire in which two brother died and at first there is no sign of their parents. It was a good read, although I had managed to forget whatever it was Quinn did wrong in the last book. The solution was not entirely satisfactory to me,

SPOILERS

although I was glad it turned out that Mattie had tried to save Zachary. There were too many loose ends: Why did Lauren call her boyfriend Ned after the police had been to see her? Was her accusation true? Why did Michael write such a vindictive review of his colleague's research? Why was Zachary so often sick? Was Michael really bisexual or homosexual? If not, what was that bit of the story about? Why'd his personality change so much over the last six months? Why did Somers lie about talking to Fawley on the steps of the station? ( )

Ow, ow, ow. That's me kicking myself for not reading the first two books in this series. This one, book three, works absolutely fine as a standalone (I was assured of this fact before I started reading) but given how good it is I really wish I had read them in order.

In this story, DI Adam Fawley and his team are working on a fire at a large family home. They know there were two children in the house at the time of the blaze but their parents are unaccounted for. When it becomes clear that this was no accident the team need to find out who is responsible...and why.

This is such a gripping story. It's slightly unusual in that there are no chapters. There are plenty of stopping places so don't worry about that, but the lack of proper chapter stops means that the pace is kept up all the way through and also that it's easy to keep reading as I was finding I could just fit a bit more in.

I liked Fawley and his team very much. They work together really well and are portrayed brilliantly. This is one of the strengths of this book (and the other police procedural series that I have kept up with) and I think that it's what makes it stand out from others in this genre. In No Way Out, the former DS Quinn has been demoted to DC with Gislingham acting as DS. Although I'm not entirely sure what happened to bring this about, there's enough back story so it didn't spoil the read. Again, this is a time when I wish I had read the other books first but I'm really glad I didn't wait any longer to read a Cara Hunter book.

One thing I particularly liked about this book is the way transcripts, online news articles and the like are used. In fact, I did a little squeal when I saw a floor plan of the house. There are also differing perspectives - Fawley in the first person and the rest in the third, which means that Fawley is very much put centre stage as a character, especially given his own private issues. I thought the whole book was really well executed.

In short, I loved this book, raced through it in fact, and hope to go back and catch up with the first two in the series (TBR pile allowing). The plot is fantastic but ultimately I think it's the characters that make it special. Having said that, the author really kept me guessing and it's some extremely good old-fashioned detective work that brings the story to a conclusion. It's just fabulous all round. ( )
