The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. Success was something of a double-edged sword for Mo Hayder. Her debut novel Birdman enjoyed astonishing sales, but called down a fearsome wrath on the author for unflinchingly entering the blood-spattered territory of Thomas Harris’ Hannibal books. Part of the fuss was clearly to do with the fact that a woman writer had handled scenes of horror and violence so authoritatively. Wolf is another highly impressive entry, streets away from the cosy reassurance of most current crime fiction. Once again, Hayder’s protagonist Jack Cafferey is characterised with particular skill, and Hayder has him dealing with the residue of the murder of two teenage lovers. The personal involvement of a copper in a grim case is an over-familiar theme, but it’s rarely been dispatched with the panache and vividness on display here. So Mo Hayder admirers can purchase with confidence.

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

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.

1. Birdman (2000)
2. The Treatment (2001)
3. Ritual (2008)

4. Skin (2009)
