Cara Hunter begins her series featuring DI Adam Fawley of Thames Valley Police with a mix of police procedural and psychological thriller set in Oxford It begins with a scene of a fearful Daisy Mason The precocious 8 year old Daisy goes missing at her parents barbeue and fireworks party for parents and neighbours The police are called in and DI Adam Fawley instigates local area searches Adam has a focused and highly competent team that are determined to find Daisy that includes DS Gareth uinn DC Gislingham and the sharp eyed DC Everett However the parents Barry and Sharon Mason are displaying strange behaviour and refusing to countenance a detailed search of their home Leo their 10 year old son is clearly not opening up about all that he knows In the meantime the media have parked up outside their home with no intention of leaving anytime soon A social media storm takes off firstly mostly concerned but later a trolling toxic presence with its vilification of the parents threats and worryingly incitement to violence and murderAs the team delve into Daisy's life and her family it soon becomes clear that they are a dysfunctional family mired in secrets and lies Sharon is insecure vain and lacking the maternal instincts to nurture her children Barry has a secret life of other women and dodgy business practices Daisy is painted as a exceedingly bright child who feels like a fish out of water with her intellectually pedestrian family She is given to eavesdropping on the conversations of others has her own secrets and emotional fallouts amongst her own coterie of schoolfriends We are given flashbacks that go back a considerable number of years to the recent past Adam and his team slowly find that every assumption they have made begins to slowly fall apart as they try to find out what happened Matters are further complicated as we become aware that Adam and his wife Alex recently lost their son Jake in highly emotionally upsetting circumstances In a investigation where nothing is as it seems suspicions focus on and oscillate between Sharon to Barry as Adam believes the perpetrator is usually close to homeThis is a fast paced and well plotted story peppered with social media postings news bulletins and police interviews It authentically replicates the reality of how outrageously people behave on social media in real life missing children cases There is twist after twist in the narrative that has you desperate to keep reading to find out how it all ends The final twist reuires a huge suspension of disbelief in my view as indeed does the portrayal of Daisy as a 8 year old but this did not stop me from enjoying the novel One of my favourite parts is just how well Adam's police team worked their absolute commitment to the case and how they support one another A highly entertaining and absorbing read Many thanks to Penguin for an ARC

Promising new police procedural series about the disappearance of an eight year old girl Close to Home offers compelling characters an unpredictable mystery and some surprising twists and turns When 8 year old Daisy Mason is reported missing DI Adam Fawley and the team are called in to investigate Daisy was last seen at a neighborhood barbecue wearing a daisy costume As Fawley and his team investigate they uickly learn that the Mason’s carefully crafted personas are nothing than facades hiding dark secrets The Mason’s uickly become primary suspects due to mother Sharon’s chilling facade and father Barry’s repulsive hobbies Dragged through the Twittersphere the Mason’s are found guilty in the eyes of the public but many uestions remain Where is Daisy Did she someone kidnap her Did she run away Or has she been murdered The case is especially traumatic for DI Fawley who is dealing with the loss of his young son This is a fast paced read that goes back and forth in time to before and after Daisy’s disappearance The POV shifts and while Fawley’s is the main voice additional character POV’s are shared Fawley is a likable lead and I am curious to learn about him as well as about some of the other characters that play a role I feel like we only get tiny glimpses of their inner lives and I would like to have seen What I liked most about Close to Home was that the mystery kept me guessing I thought things were going to be cut and dry in terms of who committed the crime but in the end I wasn’t even close to being right about I thought the culprit came out of left field which made things interesting I would recommend this to those who enjoy mysteries and police procedural series
