Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Close to Home by Cara Hunter, read by Emma Cunniffe and Lee Ingleby. Featuring 37 cameo voices including Cara Hunter.

HOW CAN A CHILD VANISH WITHOUT A TRACE?

Last night, 8-year-old Daisy Mason disappeared from a summer party at her home. No one at the party noticed her leave. Even her parents aren't sure of the last time they saw her.

DI Adam Fawley is trying to keep an open mind. But he knows that in nine cases out of ten, it's someone close to the victim.

When a pair of bloody tights is discovered, Fawley's worst suspicions are concerned.

Someone knows where Daisy is.
And her time is running out.

Introducing DI Fawley and his team of Oxford detectives, CLOSE TO HOME is the new crime series readers and authors are raving about.
