Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the audio edition of No Way Out by Cara Hunter, read by Lee Ingleby and Emma Cunniffe.  

Did you see anything on the night the Esmond family were murdered? 

It's one of the most disturbing cases DI Fawley has ever worked.   

The Christmas holidays, and two children have just been pulled from the wreckage of their burning home in North Oxford. The toddler is dead, and his brother is soon fighting for his life.  

Why were they left in the house alone? Where is their mother, and why is their father not answering his phone?  

Then new evidence is discovered, and DI Fawley's worst nightmare comes true.  

Because this fire wasn't an accident.   

It was murder.

Another Great Thriller

I enjoyed this one, though perhaps not as much as the first. The storyline was a little bit ragged and there were one or two plot holes in it. Otherwise, performance was excellent and the general execution of the novel was wonderful.

Wish Audible would bring in the second book in the series!

Fantastic next instalment

I have been in love with Cara Hunter’s DI Fawley series since the first one, ‘Close To Home.’ While they often follow the familiar past and present format of so many of their genre, the storyline is far from predictable and will surprise even the most seasoned crime reader. They’re cleverly written to reveal aspects of the case and suspects little by little as the investigation unfolds, yet always leaving little twists and turns to be discovered throughout.

Beyond this, each instalment develops the characters of Fawley and his squad a little more. We care about the characters, and the performances of Lee Ingleby and Emma Cunniffe only serve to aid this.

In this, the third instalment in the series, there is the same kind of disturbing case we’ve become accustomed to reading from Hunter. There’s also perhaps more focus on DI Fawley’s private life than there has been in its two predecessors, though this remains an undercurrent.

In summary: a third instalment that’s as gripping and well written as the first two, with further development into the main characters that leaves you craving the next!

DI Fawley solves another

The book fits in perfectly with the DI Fawley series. It’s a gripping story, written just as well as the previous books in the series. A sad tale what with the subject matter but dealt with very carefully and with some really good twists. I enjoyed the continued building of the police characters lives just as much as the crime story itself.
I couldn’t guess who-dunnit as it twisted and turned through the investigation until the very end.

Pronunciation wrong

I found the story very gripping and very much enjoyed the twists and turns and blind alleys.

What put me off was the pronunciation of place names Magdalen College is pronounced maudlin, Blackbird Leys should be lees.

Probably only an irritant to people who live nearby.

Fantastic

My new favourite author! Twists and unexpected turns, punchy main story and lots of sub-plots, characters I’ve grown fond of throughout the last 3 books and want to know how things develop - I’m hooked!
