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.

No pressure, Mo, but please hurry up with whatever new tale you are spinning. Remember Balzac drank coffee non-stop in order to keep writing his long list of novels. So drink up. please.

Can´t somebody official please explain why the movie adaptation of "The Treatment" has no Jack Caffery and why it plays in Belgium?

I can hardly think that the filmmakers couldn´t afford shooting some scenes in England or at least fake London. I guess, the WANTED to make a Belgium movie about the story because of the Belgian paedophile scandals. - In that case, they had no respect whatsoever about the character of the hero and that his story plays in England and that it is part of book series and that many readers love that book series - they just needed any material and didn´t care at all beyond that.

Thats why I hate that adaptation and hope that we will be spared with more movie adaptations.

British mysteries thrive thanks to the example set by P. D. James.

Kenosha News name checks Mo in an article on P.D. James, who died in November.

Only one more Mo Hayder book to go. "Poppet". I have the entire stack of her books on my shelf, all relished. There are some crime books I just can't bear to donate to the library after I'm finished.

When I read your books and I have read them all, I picture Daniel Craig as Jack Caffrey. They need to make Birdman into a movie.

Dear Mo Hayder - are you thinking of a followup to Hanging Hill? Two reasons: I liked the character of Zoe Benedict and think she could be developed further, plus there was a twist in the final pages that left a hanging plot thread ... which I'd like to see resolved

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.
