Review - All the Rage by Cara Hunter

All The Rage by Cara Hunter
Publisher: Penguin Books UK
Release date: 23 January 2020
Back cover blurb: 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 there's little he can do without the girl's co-operation. Is she hiding something, and if so, what? And why does Fawley keep getting the feeling he's seen a case like this before? And then another girl disappears, and Adam no longer has a choice: he has to face up to his past. Because unless he does, this victim may not be coming back . . .

Cara Hunter's DI Fawley novels are amongst my favourite and all the rage is no exception. 

When a teenage girl is found wandering the streets of Oxford, dazed and distressed, the Police are keen to find the perpetrator and press charges. 

The crime itself has worrying similarities to a previous case of Fawley's but he knows that the perpetrator of those particularly crimes is safely locked away - although approaching parole.

The current scenario screams all elements of hate crime, but despite his instincts pointing him in this direction, Fawley isn't convinced.

Told from multiple view points (the victim, the suspect, the police man), all the rage could be confusing. But it works, bringing a different perspective to each element of the story, and leaving which one of them isn't telling the whole truth.

All the rage is a fast paced, riveting read, and as always I cannot wait for Cara Hunter's next.

All The Rage is available via Amazon online and all good book shops.

Thank You to the publishers who approved my request via netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
