Publication Date: 2001

Mo Hayder can write a mystery/ psychological thriller that can keep me turning the pages and not want to stop reading. She can also write an extremely disturbing book that can give the faint of heart nightmares and make many people want to put the book aside long before finishing it.
Definitely not a book I’d recommend to a lot of folks, but if you made it through her first book (Birdman) you’ll want to read this one. Jack Caffery is back and he’s still the damaged and not wholly likeable hero he was in Birdman. The case in this book is just as messed up, if not more. The twists and turns keep the reader guessing. Jack’s personal tragedy continues to haunt him and there are more twists and turns about the story of what happened to Jack’s brother so many years ago.
Not for everyone, but a well done, if disturbing, story.
