Try as I have to read another book, I've not done so since Wolf. Really looking forward to another DI my head, Phillip Glenster. Can anyone suggest a quickie before our next Mo Hatder fix?

Hubby is a DI in Lewisham - I picture his face everytime I pick up a new Mo Hayder book. The scene setting is spot on 💙

I can still remember the delicious fear I carried when I was reading Birdman, thinking twice about entering the dark of the landing at night! I couldn't put the book down and quickly went through the brilliant Treatment. I've just finished my 9th book, Pig Island and oh my goodness what a book that is!

Mo missed out on claiming another Edgar award for her latest novel, Wolf, but huge congratulations to Stephen King, who won with his awesome book, Mr. Mercedes.

Thank you, Ms Hayder! I have just speed-read all seven Jack Caffery novels and enjoyed them immensely!! Just sad there isn't an eighth one yet. Looking forward to pre-ordering that one. You have also inspired me to look for a job with the police service.....👍

Yesterday I was finally able to watch De Behandeling, wow, what a superb movie! Everything was just like I hoped it would be, the atmosphere, the actors, the director and most of all : it was your story!!! They kept it like it was!!!

Does anyone know which song is referenced in Wolf?

"THERE’S A LINE from a song, Caffery can’t remember the title or the band, but as he’s walking through Columbus System’s offices, listening to the squeak of his feet on the polished marble floors, the song keeps going through his head. Something about waking up bleeding and drunk in a strange bed – about lunatic women who messed with your head"

Desperate for a new story Mo, been on cold turkey reading substandard books since I bought Wolf in hardback last year.

Loved all the books. just finished Wolf brilliant! Why no TV series for Cafferty who is far superior to Atkinson,s Jackson Brodie?

Hi Mo and Mo fans! Myself and my cousin Carly Davison are huge fans of the Jack Caffrey series and we would love to see a British film or TV series of the books. We have had long conversations about who would play Jack and we think David Leon (from ITV's Vera) would be great! In the meantime can we have a new book please?! We need more Jack! x

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.
