Greenwich, south-east London. The Met’s crack murder squad, AMIP, is called out by nervous CID detectives to a grim discovery. Five bodies, all young women, all ritualistically murdered and dumped on wasteland near the Dome. As each post-mortem reveals a singular, horrific signature linking the victims, officers realize that they are on the trail of that most dangerous offender: a sexual serial killer.

Detective Inspector Jack Caffery, young, driven, and unshockable, finds himself facing both hostility within the force and echoes of his past in this, his first case with AMIP. Haunted by the memory of a death long ago, he employs every weapon forensic science can offer for he knows it is only a matter of time before this chaotic, sadistic killer strikes again.

    " one of my fav books ever "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Carl Ingebretsen | 2/3/2014

    " An exciting read, with a good ending and nice plotting. However, the story is frequently a bit dull, and the killer's identity is spoiled a bit too soon. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tonya Flanigan | 1/31/2014

    " Having recieved this as a free Nook book I had low expectations. But I was truly suprised. I really was kept guessing which does not usually happen for me. My only issue may have have been an issue with Nook rather then the book itself. The transitions between storylines are abrupt. Often storyline changes are indicated by extra spaces between paragraphs or even symbols, this had neither. This really bothered me during a very important moment for the main character, I had to read the section 3 times to makes sure what I thought happened really happened. "

    " Excellent read! It held my interest all the way and kept me guessing. I hated to see it end. I would definitely like to read more of Mo Hader's books in this series. "

    " Very well written. There were some rather gory descriptions of victims of serial killer but well written and believable. Intrigued by the main character. Looking forward to reading more in this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrew | 9/22/2013

    " Cool crime writing set in modern day London. Bizarre, with twists. Had no idea what I was getting into, but liked the jacket write up and gave it a shot. Glad I did. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris | 9/19/2013

    " Fast paced, shocking, gripping thriller. A great book by Mo Hayder, I've been reading the Caffery series backwards (don't ask) and still wasn't disappointed "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Linny | 8/16/2013

    " her 1st book, too violent by far as if she searched for the edges and then set out to etch them with chainsaws. But she can construct a story..... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daniel DeLappe | 7/22/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Renee M | 6/29/2013

    " I found this series really interesting. It is violent, but I love how flawed the lead characters are. It is well written also. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mirjam | 6/15/2013

    " Wasn't sure whether to give this book 3 or 4 stars. I enjoyed it but it was very graphic and very disturbing in parts. Mo is a very good story teller will I go back for another book?? You just never know. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emilie | 6/5/2013

    " Very good indeed, took a recommendation from my sister and I havent looked back since with regards to Mo Hayder's books... Brillaint stand alone or as a start to the Jack Caffery series. Good choice for Val McDermid fans!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Roblyn | 5/1/2013

    " Slow to start. Not particularly well written - sort of jerky rather than smoothly told. But it did pick up and by the end became a page turner that I didn't want to put down. Love the serial killer novels. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bryan | 4/13/2013

    " I could not get into this book at all. It is not a "page turner". The gore/horror did not bother me at all. What bothered me was the fact that I found the book very boring. I also got lost in the sea of British police acronyms and the slang. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anna | 3/27/2013

    " The descriptions can be pretty gruesome, so it's not the kind of book I'd want to read every day (or while eating), but the plot was great and I find myself wanting to read more from this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 April | 1/15/2013

    " Slow start, but very good storyline. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Baxter Trautman | 9/27/2012

    " Just discovered Mo Hayder - creepy, tight plot. Fast pacing. Good British police procedural. Love Jack Caffrey. Classic workaholic, alcoholic, driven cop. Happy he's a serial character. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lizy Campbell | 6/8/2012

    " Excellent thriller, kept me on my toes! "
