I just finished Wolf. Can't believe I'm done with the Caffery series (unless there's more to come), I can definitely feel the withdrawals already. Though I'm excited to her others. I'm just amazed by these books.

I'm a new reader of your books and read three in recent weeks. I like the way you tell a story: enough gore, sex, diversions, different storylines, recurring characters and most of all, your protagonist, Jack Caffery.

I have but one complaint, your misuse of pronouns! Please, please have your editor hire a proofer who understand objective, nominative and subjunctive cases. I am not a pedant, but I love the English language. The constant misuse of pronouns rings false and distracts from your marvelous prose-style.

It has taken me two days to read Wolf and I have just finished, and all I can say is WOW! I couldnt put the book down, wanting to read on and on as each plot turned and twisted, but I also wanted to know how it all ended. Every book ive ever read of Mo's has been brilliant and this is no exception. The prize deserves to be yours, im keeping my fingers crossed for the Edgar awards, a stunning book, congratulations!

Some great news announced this week. Wolf has been named as a finalist in the Best Novel category of this year's Edgar Awards. Mo's latest book faces stiff competition from the likes of Stephen King's Mr Mercedes, Coptown by Karin Slaughter and This Dark Road to Mercy by Wiley Cash. The winner will be announced at a gala ceremony in New York on 29 April. If successful, this would be Mo's second Edgar after winning in the same category three years ago with Gone.

Mo Hayder


Rel: CD14-78 DS (status: approved)

Ref: 00478-WD

Mo Hayder has written some of the most terrifying crime thrillers you will ever read.  Her first novel, Birdman, was hailed as a 'first-class shocker' by the Guardian and her follow-up, The Treatment was voted by The Times one of 'the top ten most scary thrillers ever written'. In 2012 Gone won the prestigious Edgars Best Novel award.


Mo's books are 100% authentic, drawing on her long research association with several UK police forces and on her personal encounters with criminals and prostitutes.


Mo left school at 15 and has worked as a barmaid, security guard, English teacher, and even a hostess in a Tokyo club. She has an MA in film making from the American University in Washington DC and an MA in creative writing from Bath Spa University. She now lives in England's West Country and is a full-time writer.
