Publisher Description

ONE BODY. SIX EXPERTS. CAN YOU SOLVE THE CASE BEFORE THEY DO?

Mega-bestselling British crime novelist Cara Hunter makes her big American debut with a wholly immersive thriller like none you've seen before: written as the teleplay of a true-crime documentary, it has the reader puzzling away, reviewing photos, maps, coroner's reports and other evidence as they read. Can you tell who's lying?

"An excellent, wholly original whodunnit! You won’t have read a mystery like this, and you’ll be kept in the dark right to the end." --Gilly MacMillan, bestselling author of The Long Weekend

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 streaming series Infamous, dedicated to investigating—and perhaps cracking—this famous cold case. Years later a group of experts re-examine the evidence – with shocking results. Does the team know more than they’ve been letting on?

True crime lovers and savvy readers, you can review the evidence and testimony at the same time as the experts. But can you solve the case before they do?

“4.5⭐️”
Smiling Face with Heart-Eyes“This book was an instant buy for me after absolutely loving Cara Hunter's DI Adam Fawley series. And I absolutely wasn't disappointed! The format of the book was utterly fascinating to see. The story was told through the use of newspaper articles, scripts, emails, graphs, pictures, and various formats, and I absolutely loved it! It genuinely felt like I was part of the story, solving the crime. It was so much fun and just visually exciting. It helps that the story itself was also clever, gripping, and had me hooked from start to finish! The twists never kept coming, and while there was a lot going on, I never once felt confused or lost. This book had me in it's grips and didn't let go! Cara Hunter proves yet again what an INCREDIBLE writer she is, and I absolutely can't wait for her next! I HUGELY recommend this one!”

“4⭐️ really enjoyed this! As someone that has always had a dream of being a detective, I wanted this book to test me and my solving skills but let’s just say this book stumped me. I really enjoyed the premise of this book and found the twist shocking and unexpected! I will say this book can definitely get confusing at times since it goes into so many different directions and the ending was ehhh okay, but exactly what I was hoping for but it makes sense! I would recommend if you’re into this type of mixed media, interview style book”
