All the rage - Cara Hunter review

When it comes to reading and enjoying stories this past year, I have been on a journey of self discovery. I have learnt so much from the books I've read, but the biggest shock for me was my new found love for thrilling detective based stories. Stories about crimes written from the perspective of the detectives trying to unravel what happened, how it happened, why it happened and who is to blame. I am surprised because you will not meet a bigger wus then me, but it seems my desire to learn and understand what goes on behind the police appeals and the cordoned off tape is bigger.

All the rage - Cara Hunter review

All the Rage - Cara Hunter ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

That's where All the Rage by Cara Hunter comes in, this is a book that sparked my imagination and had me dying to know what happened, and why. The story has twists and turns at every corner, but not in an unbelievable way, and when it finally unravels the sense of closure I felt for the characters was amazing I had almost been holding my breath.

A teenage girl is found wandering the outskirts of Oxford, dazed and distressed. The story she tells is terrifying. Grabbed off the street, a plastic bag pulled over her face, then driven to an isolated location where she was subjected to what sounds like an assault. Yet she refuses to press charges.

Di Fawley investigates but with the girl refusing to cooperate what can he do? there's something uncomfortably familiar about this case, so when a girl disappears he forced to face up to his past, or this girl might not be so lucky, she might not come home.

What I loved about this book was how we see a crime through that of the investigating officers, we start to understand how they think, and how previous investigations can leave their mark. How people who often appear to be one thing upon closer inspection are someone else completely, the clues are they you just have to look hard enough.

This is book four in the DI Fawley series and was my first introduction to the character, although part of a series it works as a stand alone book. For me it has sparked an interest, and I have already started reading the previous books.

If you love thrillers, police detective or crime novels you are gonna love ALL THE RAGE.
