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.

We just came across this gorgeous jacket for the Dutch edition of Wolf and uploaded it to the book page on the website. Have you spotted any other international editions that we might've missed? If so, let us know and we'll add them to the site.

Am 2/3 into "Skin" & just finished "Ritual" & "Pig Island". Readers will do well to read the Caffery books in order. Not necessary but enhances the reading experience. Mo is a devil woman whose writing is so addictive, I feel like a junkie. What happens when I've read them all? Eeeek scary thought. Cause no one else can begin to compare to her breakneck locomotive non- put-downable style.

just finished reading Wolf .... and as usual, it was hard to let go of the book and do anything else. The story grubs and holds you captive just as the family in a book. What an amazing mind you have and thanks for putting it on paper to share your imagination with us. As well, the style of your writing makes it such an easy read. Thanks.
I am always waiting with minimal patience for the next book to come out. Just can’t get enough…. Don’t make us wait too long.

Mo's books are addictive so ordered my third one from Amazon, "Skin", before I'm done with "Ritual", cause I don't want to suffer withdrawals for long. That will make three. "Pig Island", "Ritual", then "Skin". Already wondering which one to order in about a week.

Posted: 28th August 2014 @ 11:23 pm

FROM: Karen Yochim

Wondering which to read next after "Pig Island" & "Ritual". Ideas, please?

Just discovered your books. Bought all the Jack Caffery books and have read all but Gone. I plan on ordering everything else you have written. Love your style of writing and the stories are moving. Keep up the good work and look forward to more on Jack.

"I am still an avid crime and thriller reader, which is why I choose to write in that genre. I love writers such as Jo Nesbo, Steig Larsson, Martina Cole, Mo Hayder and Lee Child.

Read an exclusive interview with K. T. Medina on her new thriller, White Crocodile - a book which Mo called 'an exciting first novel, from a huge new talent'.

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.
