I've just started reading Wolf & am already finding it almost too scary to turn the next page. It's got me hooked though, although I may not read it in bed tonight, just in case it gives me nightmares! Well done so far on another gripping story with the moody Jack Caffrey.

I'm such a Mo Hayder addict, I read "Gone Girl" cause it was a birthday present, and was utterly bored with its wordiness & cared zero what happened to any of the characters. Was so happy I had a stack of Mo's thrillers to get back to. I truly care what happens to Caffery & Flea.

The Jack Caffrey series is so addictive. Why did you change readers for your audiobook of "Wolf"?
It is just.. not the same..

Just finished reading Wolf; so good! I've read all the books and some in Norwegian translation. Even if I prefer the English versions, the language sometimes is a bit difficult for a foreigner. Looking very much forward to your next book which will be soon (?).
Thank you very much.

Hi Mo Hayder. I Stumbled across Bird Man when it first came out and I was amazed and I have read everything since. I love the Caffery Books and I hope you will keep going with him. I have just started Wolf and I am hooked. It would be amazing for him to find out what happened to his brother.
Please never give up writing as I have never found an author who has me as hooked as

I really liked all the other Jack C books, I'm just not enjoying this one. Too much of the Turrets people (I mean who really cares about them?) and not enough Jack. I've just got to the bit where he's slept with the acid scarred woman - frankly she sounds a lot better match for Jack than Flea.

We're still waiting on general release details of the movie adaptation of Mo's thriller, The Treatment (filmed as De Behandeling - de film), but judging by this reaction following a screening at Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas, hopefully it won't be too long coming.

'The Treatment is a chilling criminal masterpiece that packs the strongest emotional wallop achieved in quite some time, leaving viewers disgusted, crazed and heartbroken in the most impressive of ways.' - Matt Donato (We Got This Covered)

I've read quite a few of your's now Mo but I found an earlier one last week 'the treatment' OMG I am on the last bit now, I've been to bed and give up because I can't take my mind off it, back downstairs to finish it. How on earth do you do it, blooming brilliant, I've been shaking all the way through it! Flipping Norah

Have just finished WOLF... Fantastic...what an ending.

Poppet was quite something. Real mysteries abound for those who can see. Glad Stewart and company were ok. Wish better for Isaac, but perhaps that was only the beginning for him...

Just finished "Skin" & have theory. These stories when taken in series have to do with Jung's archetypes. Amos is the Trickster. Walking Man is the Wise Old Man. Both Caffery & Flea are both on incredibly difficult journeys filled with obstacles in each story and are both Heroes, & Animus & Anima respectively. The quarry & other bodies of water represent the subconscious into which Flea frequently stays immersed, especially when she goes under at night. There's more that I'm ferreting out.

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.
