Mo Hayder is a considered detailed and really quite amazing genre writer. But in my view her stories are extremely violent, dark, disturbing and viscerally distressing. Not unlike JK Rowling's descriptions in The Silk Worm where the violence is alarming troubling and upsetting.
i bought this book after finishing bridman and i was not disappointed.
again, well-paced and excellent narration, and the primary topic is difficult to comprehend (i'm saying no more to avoid spoiling).
i would certainly recommend (for reference, i like robert crais (my favourite), steven dunne, christopher fowler, 'the killing' was immense, and nesbo's 'headbunters'.)
as i noted on my review of "birdman" i've now gone for "tokyo" as the reviews for the other jack caffery novels don't praise the (different) narrator.

I enjoyed this book to a certain extent, but the explicit references to paedaphilia & sometimes quite graphic, was, I felt, not needed so much.. We got the idea what it was about at the beginning of the book. The book, in my mind was far too long & drawn out with the the narrator droning on & on, & I really felt I wanted him to hurry up a bit. Such a shame as I thought this would be a good buy....
