Has anyone read Mo Hayder? Any good?
I love Mo Hayder.
Great! Pretty dark and graphic though
Love Mo Hayder. The Birdman is my favourite.
Brilliant. Loved all the Jack Caffrey books . Enjoy
Currently reading poppet, excellent!
She is an excellent writer. Her books have been nominated for Edgar awards. Every one is sensational….
Oh, she also has the Jack Caffrey books. She wrote them first.
Love Mo Hayder especially The Treatment couldnt sleep for weeks.xx
They’ve made a film of it , very close to book gave me the horrors
Really? I must look for it!!
Pig island is a brilliant read no matter how many times I read it I still get chills
Vicky, are you serious? Lol. Mo Hayder is a legend! I cannot recommend her Jack Caffrey series highly enough. It all starts with ‘Birdman’ and ‘The Treatment’, but, gets better and better and better with ‘ Wolf’ being the last offering until a new one in 2017. There are two relatively forgetful standalone books called ‘Pig Island’ and ‘Tokyo’ aka The Devil Of Nanking, but another standalone entitled ‘Hanging Hill’ is an absolute must read. I’m sure that you will not be disappointed xx
I’m reading Skin at the moment. Loving it!
Brilliant books x
Brilliant books to read!!
P.s ‘Gone’ and ‘Wolf’ the latest two of the Jack Caffrey series are both ones that you will gasp at. Nobody I know could put them down and read them in just a couple of days. They are exciting reads x
Read it and find out!!?
Brilliant books. Anyone know if there is a next Jack Caffrey in the series? Have read all up to date.
As far as I know Wolf is the latest book published in 2014.
Jay Harris has the latest info on Mo Hayder.
Yes, her next is due Spring 2017 ?
I tried Val McDermid once, but it was too gory.
I’ve read most of them, very good. Not for the faint hearted though, bit graphic if your not keen ?
Hanging hill is great!
Great books have read them all by Mo Hayder
Excellent books, particularly like the Jack Caffrey ones
They’re a fantastic read
Love em! Unique stories a firm stomach maybe needed.
Just read the first two jack caffrey books and loved them!
Literally the best crime author EVER! ?
Yes they are great but not always a comfortable read!
Birdman is one of the most disturbing books you’ll ever read. My partner couldn’t finish it. It’s brilliant!
She writes about police, good and bad, missing child, childhood trauma, man hunts and a lot of psychological issues. They take a bit to get into but the stories are brilliant. Bird man was the first followed by The Treatment. Ritual , Skin, Gone, Poppett and Wolf. Wolf is the latest book published in 2014. They receive quite a rave. Couldn’t put down Gone. Tried teaching the next day. Total chaos. When that happens, I say ” Today is shut up and color day” Usually the little ones are angels.
Brilliant love all her books.
I have downloaded Birdman. Thanks for your comments so far xx
The most disturbing but brill books, one of my fave authors xx
Brilliant – and The Treatment (her second crime book) is on Film Four tonight! Brace yourself …!
Absolutely brilliant. And as a bonus The Treatment is on Film 4 this evening at 23.15 – can’t wait to watch it. ?
Already set to taping it x
Don’t worry, Deb, they always repeat these films, somtimes on Channel $ after they’ve been on Film Four! It wasn’t bad but maybe too close to the book!
Love her books x
Thanks Wade. Glad you got all the way to the end.Would go back in a heartbeat……
We’d welcome you with open arms, Pam! Say “Hi!” to Hilary and Bill Clinton for me! xx
Will do. They don’t come here too often. Mr. Bush, his Dad and Bill were here for a graduation @ Central High School last week. There are too busy campaigning.
Unfortunately Cadbury’s have been bought out by an American company and now it’s horrible 🙁 As you can possibly tell from my photo, I’m a complete chocoholic and had never before met a choccy bar I didn’t like…. Now have galaxy choc (which gives me a bad headache if I have too much) instead! To me, cadbury now taste like the Hershey choc you get in the states.. Cheap and nasty tasting 🙁
Oh, that makes me sad. Is Cadbury the same there? I mean the taste. It would cost a fortune to ship some. But, my boys don’t think its Easter without Cadbury.
TBH, I don’t think everyone has noticed it’s so different, my niece (who takes after me with chocolate) hasn’t noticed it, but my nephew did, but he doesn’t eat much chocolate anyway.. but I wouldn’t bother to get it shipped, maybe if you have someone here in UK visiting you they can take it for you?
Thank you Laura for telling me this. It does disappoint me because their chocolate was very unusual….Still miss your country and Harrods and Selfridges. But,my favorite store was Marks and Spenser.Still wearing my socks during tje winter time.Nice chatting with you!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Love these books. But some are quite disturbing as mentioned above
No it doesn’t taste the same here, although they have tinkered with it. I send regular shipments out to an old scholl friend who lives in TN.
I didn’t like Pig Island – at all 🙂
Birdman, The Treatment and Tokyo are absolutely stunning
She’s a phenomenal writer. Robert Goddard is as well. They write in a style where you can’t put it down. All of Mo Hayder’s books are well researched and almost you think some of the story happened to her personally. Wolf should be nominated for something.Would love for Theseus Paradox to be nominated for an award. I LOVE that book…….All of you lovely people, have a great Sunday. Go smash an egg!!!!!!!!!
Would you mind doing it for me?Would love some McVitees biscuits. If you don’t want to, I understand…..
It is very expensive to send, the last parcel was almost £20 and that was not very large or heavy, more than the contents cost.
Then, lets forget it. Sorry I even asked you. I can live without them. but, thank you anyway…..
Great author very gritty novels love her stuff
Which book shall I start with please. ???
The bird man @Dot x
Thank you Deb…..I’ll download it for my TBR list. x
She’s brilliant really life like too, I’ve read every book she has written enjoy xx
Thank you Angie. x
She got into a lot of silly trouble when Birdman came out because she was a woman writing about graphic violence – even though I’m pretty sure the vast majority of crime writers are women! Sexist dicks!
She is the Business, I have spent 26 years in the old bill and her crime bits are spot on
I heard that, Mike, but it’s good to know!
Wade, no idea who her source is but she is good. Have you read any of Sharon BOLTON books aka S.J. BOLTON? I know her source and again absolutely spot on.
I love Sharon Bolton, she certainly seems authentic. They say Linda La Plante is pretty spot on, too, and does a lot of research, even into her TV scripts.
Another great writer and lovely lady. Always looking for new Authors, any recommendations?
If you like accurate procedrals, Mike, have you tried Luke Delaney’s books? I’ve read the first two and they’re excellent and as a police officer himself – still serving, I think – they certainly seem realistic. Also, Peter James is very good, too!
Ahhhh Peter James cracking read. I shall take a look at Luke Delaney as have not read any of his yet. Thanks Wade.
No problem, Mike. Start with Cold Killing, that’s Luke Delaney’s first book in the DI Sean Corrigan series, and see if you like it! Are you a writer, too, Mike?
Wade only when I arrest people. The magistrates often say that was a a great piece of Fiction PC DORANS ha ha. I’d love to sit and write a book I have so many ideas I just need to find the time and commit to it. What about you have you had anything published?
That’s funny, Mike! I’ve just published my first ebook on Amazon. I’ve just finished the first draft of a crime novel about an ex-military serial killer. If I email it to you, would you take a quick look at it and give me a few notes on the procedure side? I could give you a mention inside as my advisor if you like! I understand if you’re too busy, though!
No way! That’s brilliant, Mike! I’ve tried to use some Army terminology in it but I’m never sure if I’m using it right! I’ll give it a spell and grammar check and email it to you in few days if that’s OK? It will have to be as either a PDF or Word document – I think PDFs are probably easier to read. Is that OK?
Not an issue Wade, shall look forward to it…. take care @Mike
Thanks a lot, Mike! I’ll email soon!!
I love them especially the first few. Birdman is a must for any crime book lover. 5*
Birdman is one of my most favourite books ever ?
Mine too @Jennifer
A resounding yes for these books then. I best get clicking then!
I already have….lol. !!! Birdman is downloaded, waiting. x
Birdman and The Treatment are wonderful – I’ve got a few more recent ones to read, thanks for reminding me – one author I haven’t reviewed for the blog. I know I have Disordered Minds in the kitchen, and The Cellar from NetGalley, although I think it may be just a novella??
Halfway through Birdman….??????
