About this deal

His brother, Phillip Esmond, is helping with enquires but Fawley suspects he may be hiding something.

I think because the crimes depicted in this series are so serious and sensitive, and thus far have all involved children, that it's nice to have a break once and a while and follow the character's on their downtime. As initial suspicion falls on Michael Esmond with reports of his erratic behaviour in the last few months and an ongoing anthropology departmental investigation into his conduct underway, the story dissects every aspect of his life. aportan dinamismo al conjunto, vamos al pasado X días antes del incendio para tratar de unir los puntos, la autora nos lleva por donde quiere y nosotros la seguimos con devoción. There are some surprising and not so surprising twists but, in the end, it is a tragic stor6y which should have ended quite differently (for the characters, not the author).There are twists right up to the end that surprised me, but they were appropriate, and worked beautifully. Acting Detective Sergeant Gishingham heads up the day-to-day investigation, while he has to work with the man he replaced, DC Quinn who was demoted. It almost feels like a car crash as the true horror of what has actually gone on plays out alongside the investigation as the time ticks down until the atrocity and pinpointing the impetus behind an unthinkable crime. No Way Out is the utterly compelling third book in the Oxford based series by Cara Hunter featuring DI Adam Fawley and after a sensational second outing, this third book cements the author’s status as a rising star of some of the most compelling police procedurals about.

Lo compensa dejando caer una serie de interrogantes, muy bien medidos, para los que yo, como lectora, necesitaba respuestas. There are lots of twists and turns in this third book and although not my favourite in the series is nevertheless a good read.Two children are pulled from the wreckage of the fire - three year old Zachary is already dead and his older brother Matty is in a critical state, and the prognosis isn’t good. This is the non-university, non-tourist side of the city, where people live, work and have mainstream jobs. Sin duda, este es el mejor libro de la saga, ya que primero hay que leer ¿Quién se ha llevado Daisy Mason? Pero todos se preguntan dónde están los padres, y más aún cuando se confirma que el incendio fue provocado. Though Fawley was a little off his game in this book, he still was a really likable and capable character.

The one thing I wish, though, is that there was a US release date for this book and the next in the series. Again there's an even split between the police investigation in the present, and what led up to the crime, in this case 317 days before the fire working forward.You can read these as standalones, but this installment is a little harder to get because it hasn’t been released in the US, so you have to get a foreign edition online. DC Quinn is resentful and struggling to accept DS Gislingham leading the inquiry and has yet to come to terms with his demotion. What makes this tragedy even worse is that all the evidence points to the fire having been started deliberately. While the first two books in the series are available here, I had to get a UK version of the paperback for this one and I know I’m going to be going that route for book four, as well.

Cuando uno de los bomberos logre entrar en la casa por una de las ventanas lo que encontrará será una sorpresa muy desagradable; el pequeño de la familia aparece sin vida en su cuna y el mayor se encuentra en un estado de extrema gravedad por lo que es trasladado rápidamente al hospital más cercano. Como os digo, es un Thriller, que no ha dejado de sorprenderme, con muchos giros de trama y con un final que me ha puesto los pelos de punta, el corazón me iba a mil por hora porque suceden tantísimas cosas en esas últimas 100 páginas que no puedes parar ni un solo momento de leer y, debo añadir que el final me ha emocionado.

As with the previous books in this series interspersed within the narrative are media reports of the initial fire and subsequent discoveries along with the related reader comments, official police and pathology reports, as well as flashbacks to periods prior to the fire which gives us an insight into the mindsets of Samantha and Michael and certain events in the months leading up to that fateful night. I felt genuinely baffled and stupid that I’d missed hints, but then you experience your mind blowing and can’t help re-reading previous paragraphs or saying ‘noooooo’ repeatedly. As always, the strength of Hunter’s storytelling lies in her ability to constantly keep us on our toes. Firefighters have already pulled the body of a 3 year old child, Zachary, out of the house and a 10 year old boy, Matty, is rushed to hospital in a critical condition. The city's real and so are the people in the story: the Esmond family come off the page well despite being dead or missing when we meet them as Cara Hunter drip-feeds us what's been happening in their lives over the past nine months or so.
