(The first book in the Jack Caffery series)

Read with your lights on
Very good, very creepy writer, especially for a debut. DON'T pickup if you have a weak stomach. NOT for the faint of heart. Well-written horror, real horror in an almost everyday sense, not supernatural. Twisted and grisly, it may seem to some that that is all there is but Jack Caffery knows there is more to it than a simple psychopath. He is an excellent character that I look forward to shaking hands with...good mysteries abound in this novel.

There were moments in the book that approached the border of what might be called "torture porn." A very difficult book to read given the relentless horror and misery that originated in the darkest of hearts. I finished the book, though, because I liked Jack Caffery, a hero who had to face his own personal demons. Mo Hader's prose carried me forward on a literary journey to the edge of hell.

NOT for thin-skinned, nightmare-prone readers... this story became progressively weirder and quite violent. Author has an imagination when it comes to types of crimes. Sometimes I felt the motivation wasn't well explained. Overall it was original in a quite twisted sense. I'll try another by Hayder...

Women are being murdered and strange items are found with their bodies leading detectives on what may be a wild goose chase. This was really good and I loved the twists!

Started kind of slow, but picked up rather quickly. The author guides us to a mid book normal conclusion but she throws us a curve ball that just leaves us stranded in the middle of a desert wondering where this is going. The pace is fast. The end is a bit weak, but all in all a good book (her first). Recommended. I can't wait to pick up another Hayder book.

The writing is good but too graphic and grisly for me.
