Cara Hunter is a writer who lives in Oxford, in a street not unlike those featured in her series of crime books. Close to Home, her debut featuring DI Adam Fawley and his team of detectives, will be published by Viking in January 2018, with her second, In the Dark to follow in June.

'One of the best crime thrillers I have ever read!' Kathryn Croft

'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

'A thrilling opener to a hugely promising new series' Alison Graham, Radio Times
