Poppet Jack Caffery 6 by Mo Hayder
  

Lovereading view...

Mass hysteria is gripping the patients of Beechway High Secure Unit in Bristol. Unit co-ordinator A J calls in the police and so DI Jack Caffery begins his sixth case. He is still investigating a missing person’s case from a previous novel but there is sufficient background here to carry you through both cases. Mo Hayder is especially good at writing dark, suspenseful but realistic storylines. Initially the short chapters that jump from one subject to another at a fast rate seem a tad confusing but the story draws you in and then holds on tight to the finish. Highly recommended for those who like a sinister, creepy, nightmarish tale.

If you like Mo Hayder you might also like to read books by M R Hall, Katia Lief and Oliver Stark.

Maxim Jakubowski's view on DI JACK CAFFERY...

A London cop in self-exile in Bristol who is running from his past, now working in tandem with a local female police diver. Not for the faint-hearted, a series that explores the heart of darkness and chills to the bones. SKIN is the 4th in the series.

Jack Caffery series:
1. Birdman (2000)
2. The Treatment (2001)
3. Ritual (2008)

4. Skin (2009)
