My mother in law gave me the Skin book as a gift, she thought it'd appeal to my "macabre" taste in books, she was right! Totally hooked :D I've just bought the others in the series ^_^

Expanding upon last week's 'most disturbing books' theme, we just spotted this blog post from Colorado-based bookshop, Old Firehouse Books, which looks at employees' Top 5 Most F*@#'d Up Books (their words, not ours).

Mo's The Devil of Nanking (AKA Tokyo) makes Allison's list. Care to share your Top 5?

'Birdman - One of the Most Disturbing Books I Have Ever Read'. Read author William Malmborg's review of Mo's debut. Is it the most disturbing book you've ever read? If not, what is?

I've just finished Wolf. Having discovered Mo when The Treatment was released and waiting with bated breath for each release of the Jack Cafferey novels, my heart broke for him at the end of book. Since becoming a mother, I've had to put reading these books on the back burner - they are much harder to stomach now I have a child of my own.

I'm a big fan of Karin Slaughter's work, but I've almost finished all her books. I was looking for my next read, when I spotted Mo Hayder's books on the shelf, and funnily enough it had Karin's name on the front where she'd commented.
I was just wondering if any Mo Hayder readers, had also read Karin Slaughter's stuff, and whether you would recommend this series to me?
I've read some good reviews, and I've also read some bad reviews - so couldn't work out if I'd like them.
Would love some recommendations :)

Just finished reading wolf. I have read all Mo's books and they are all equally thrilling and terrifying. Once started I can't put them down, especially with the story of his brother running in the background of each novel. I suspect though that Wolf finalises this for Jack, although the reader has known the truth for quite a while.

FROM: Sandy Taylor Chrysler

When is the next book to follow up Wolf coming out??? I am an avid reader of all your books... The Nanking Devil was probably one of the best books I'd read in a good while. But I am completely hooked on Jack and cannot wait for the next installment. I have one question, it seemed as though the way he unknowingly found his brother, and lost him at the same time.....did you ever have any differing ways of bringing that together? It almost killed me that he was THAT CLOSE to his brother and didn't find him.....LOVE your stories and cannot wait for the next Jack installment.

Mo, I've just seen the film version of 'The Treatment' and I can honestly say that it's one of the most disturbing films I've ever seen. The lead actor who played the investigating Cop was outstanding, as was the rest of the cast. I'm a great fan of foreign cinema, but I'm a little surprised that such an original story wasn't taken up by a British Independent?

Mo Hayder


Rel: CD14-78 DS (status: approved)

Ref: 00478-WD

Mo Hayder has written some of the most terrifying crime thrillers you will ever read.  Her first novel, Birdman, was hailed as a 'first-class shocker' by the Guardian and her follow-up, The Treatment was voted by The Times one of 'the top ten most scary thrillers ever written'. In 2012 Gone won the prestigious Edgars Best Novel award.


Mo's books are 100% authentic, drawing on her long research association with several UK police forces and on her personal encounters with criminals and prostitutes.


Mo left school at 15 and has worked as a barmaid, security guard, English teacher, and even a hostess in a Tokyo club. She has an MA in film making from the American University in Washington DC and an MA in creative writing from Bath Spa University. She now lives in England's West Country and is a full-time writer.
