    Ian Rankin
  • Cara Hunter has written like a pro, with admirable command of pace and rising tension

    The Times
  • 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
  • One of the best crime thrillers I have ever read!

    Kathryn Croft
  • Hunter has a keen sense of contemporary mores...The most compelling thing about the novel is its portrait of a self-absorbed mother whose inability to love her children leads to a breathtaking denouement.

    Sunday Times
  • 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... sets the bar for new crime writers

    John Marrs, author of The One
  • 'In this gripping mystery, Hunter keeps her readers guessing about Daisy's fate until the last page.'

    Daily Express
  • I finished Close to Home in one sitting! Such a cleverly written, chilling and twisty read

    Nuala Ellwood
  • A thrilling opener to a hugely promising new series, with a cop who sidesteps all of those weary 'maverick' tropes while staying kind, compassionate, clever and just that bit out of the ordinary
