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

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

"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

--Adele Geras, author of Troy
