Have just finished reading pig island and sooo want this to be made into a film 😁
If your readers could turn any of your books into films, which one would they chose?

Mo, I will cheerfully and for free proofread your next crime novel. I am tired of waiting for it and am jones-ing for your next one. I am a crime writer also (Cajun), and would absolutely & sincerely LOVE to proof for you. Send me a rough draft if you like. I would be greatly honored to help move it along...& speed up the process. Can you give us a hint of what's coming next?

Hi there. Sorry to bother. I'm interested in your novel, The Treatment but i was wondering if you could suggest a jump off point. I know it's book 2 so i was just curious if I needed book 1 to get the full affect. Or if there was another series before that? Just looking for a friendly tip. Thanks in advance.

It's always nice to uncover new reviews for Mo's books. Here's a recent one for Hanging Hill by Shannon Hollinger, Writer & Adventurer. Has it really been five years since this was first published?

Mo, Please write new "Jack Caffery" book. I can hardly wait to read another book written by you, and ONLY you. No author writes the way you do. I have read everything you have written. Loved each book. My favorite of all is "The Devil of Nanking." That book struck me right in myheart, and was so deeply moving. Now I will go back and read all your books again as I patiently wait for you to gift us with another jewel...

As usual you got me by the throat and dragged me thru GONE, my heart in my throat. Felt kinda dirty because of the pedophile theme but of course, once again, you had me on the wrong footing (although I did feel quite early that it had to be....) and the ending actually brought tears to my eyes. Thanxs for that.

I don't think I can live without Jack for too much longer Mo. Also I think you should send a copy of your work to Tom Hardy, he'd love it and get a film made HERE!

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.
