#review #thriller #mystery #truecrime Murder in the Family by Cara Hunter

A shocking thriller about a cold case, a fictional true crime series, and the family caught in the middle.


It was a case that gripped the nation. In December 2003, Luke Ryder, the stepfather of acclaimed filmmaker Guy Howard (then aged 10), was found dead in the garden of their suburban family home.

Luke Ryder’s murder has never been solved. Guy Howard’s mother and two half-sisters were in the house at the time of the murder–but all swear they saw nothing. Despite a high-profile police investigation and endless media attention, no suspect was ever charged.

But some murder cases are simply too big to forget…

Now comes the sensational new Netflix series Infamous, dedicated to investigating–and perhaps cracking–this famous cold case. The production team will re-examine testimony, re-interview witnesses, and once again scour the evidence. The family will speak. The key players will be reunited–on camera. The truth will come out.

Review by Twinsie Dee

i bought this book and this is my honest review

When detectives re open a case on the 20th anniversary and relook at all the evident, interviews, reinterviewing the family just to figure out who killed Luke Ryder. Everyone is still not sure what happened or who would want Luke dead the question is clear, but will these experts be able to finally solve this case before it goes cold. this was a very different type of read, very fun, with all the crime pictures, making you feel like part of the team to help solve the murder. Also, with so many twists and turns you won’t see the real killer coming or will you.

I’ve always been a voracious reader and viewer of crime – I’ve learned so much from the outstanding writing that we now see on crime TV like Line of Duty or Broadchurch, and I’ve tried to recreate the experience of watching series like that for my readers. I’ve been using mixed media from the very first Fawley book – in fact, since before they started calling it mixed media! I love giving my readers different ways to explore the story and I’m such a geek that I do all my artwork myself. My favourite feedback is when readers tell me it’s like getting the raw material of the case, so they can be detectives themselves. That’s where the idea for MURDER IN THE FAMILY came from.

What else about me? I have a boy cat who does his best to distract me whenever I get close to a keyboard (if you have cats, you’ll know), I love travelling, spending time with friends, and I have never knowingly turned down a glass of champagne….
