Wolf Jack Caffery Series 7 by Mo Hayder

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

If you are not familiar with this series you should be warned that they are very grim, very graphically violent and unsettling. They star DI Jack Caffrey of which this is the seventh. A family of three, mother, father, grownup daughter, is taken hostage in their holiday home by two men posing as policemen. The narrative is told from different points of view and involves several plot lines, one of which concerns Jack’s brother and a mysterious tramp out walking a dog. To get the full impact of this strand you need to be familiar with the series. If you are not too bothered about background then read this for its chilling plot, mesmerising tension and stunning twists. Mo Hayder is very good indeed but only for those with a strong stomach.

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

Wolf Jack Caffery Series 7 by Mo Hayder

I believe, from what I can hear, that either my daughter or my wife has just been attacked. I don't know the outcome. The house is silent. Fourteen years ago two teenage lovers were brutally murdered in a patch of remote woodland. The prime suspect confessed to the crimes and was imprisoned. Now, one family is still trying to put the memory of the killings behind them. But at their isolated hilltop house...the nightmare is about to return.


Hayder keeps you guessing adroitly - and has in Caffrey, a maverick cop so fascinatingly weird that he makes Ian Rankin's Rebus seems a stolid conformist. Sunday Times, Culture Builds to its mesmerising climax with a brilliantly paced sense of menace. Masterful. Sunday Mirror
