Hayder has a profound ability to shock and surprise her readers
With Mo Hayder you never know where you are going until you get there
Extraordinarily good. Creepy, enthralling, twisty and very moving. Wow.
Oozes sinisterness from the first page
Enthralling...Hayder’s sharply drawn characters, major and minor, and her psychological acumen combine for a frightening and convincing read.
