Review: The Whole Truth by Cara Hunter

Challenge prompt: A book with a black and white cover.


When an Oxford student accuses one of the university’s professors of sexual assault, DI Adam Fawley’s team think they’ve heard it all before. But they couldn’t be more wrong.

Because this time, the predator is a woman and the shining star of the department, and the student a six-foot male rugby player.

Soon DI Fawley and his team are up against the clock to figure out the truth. What they don’t realise is that someone is watching.

And they have a plan to put Fawley out of action for good…

What I liked:

One of the things I love most about Cara’s books is the inclusion of multimedia within it. It shakes up the story in such a fantastic way, and makes you feel much more a part of it.

Something I also really enjoyed in this book particularly is the inclusion of a sort of Dramatis Personae at the beginning. For some people it may have been the first book of Cara’s or from the series they’ve read. For others, such as myself, they’re retuning to the books having not read them since the last one was published a year before. A run through of who’s who in the book is such a helpful addition. I wish other books included this.

What I didn’t like:

Due to size of the writing, some of the multimedia articles in the e-copy I read were illegible. I’ll definitely be looking out for them in the finished copy.

There are two separate cases in this book, and I think it would have been better to focus just on one throughout. I did feel it interrupted the story flitting back and forth so.

Out of five:

Four. I really enjoyed this book, and it’s a fantastic read whether or not you’ve followed the series.
