Publisher's Summary

Everything goes according to procedure when a patient, Isaac, is released into the community from a high-security mental health ward. But when the staff realizes that he was connected to a series of unexplained episodes of self-harm among the ward's patients, and furthermore that he was released in error, they call on Detective Jack Caffery to investigate and to track Isaac down before he can kill again. Will the terrifying little effigies Isaac made explain the incidents around the ward, or provide the clue Caffery needs to predict what he's got planned?
Mo Hayder is renowned for conjuring nightmares that sink under the skin, and in Poppet she has delivered a taut, unbearably suspenseful novel that will not let listeners go.


What the Critics Say

"More jittery than suspenseful, but the complications are authentic and conscientiously worked out. If this installment doesn't win new fans, it'll keep the old ones happy." (Kirkus Reviews)

Not for me

Other reviews were good but I just couldn't get into it. I have tried for 2 days to find something interesting about this book but just can't. I know and respect people who love this book. Just goes to show that not all books are for all people. I am an avid listener and am always looking for a new author but I couldn't find anything to like about this book.
