Product description

Review

"Hunter does a masterly job of building tension and keeping the reader guessing to the very end."
--Publishers Weekly

"This well-written psychological drama will keep you guessing until the very end."
--Book Reporter

"[A] mazey, gripping story."
--Ian Rankin, New York Times bestselling author of the Inspector Rebus series

"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, author of After We Fall

"An amazing, fast-paced thrill-ride and one of the best crime thrillers I have ever read! An exciting plot combined with top quality writing--just perfect!"
--Kathryn Croft, author of The Girl with No Past and While You Were Sleeping

"Great characters, engrossing story and a twist at the end I did not see coming."
--Marika Cobbold, author of Frozen Music

"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 . . . told in a unique, modern way that sets the bar for new crime writers . . . the last time I felt that excited by a book was A Kind Worth Killing."
--John Marrs, author of When You Disappeared and The One

"This book won't let you off the hook. Once you open it and start reading, forget about doing much else at all."
--Adele Geras, author of Troy

"[I] finished Close to Home in one sitting! Such a cleverly written, chilling and twisty read."
--Nuala Ellwood, author of My Sister's Bones
