Riveting, thrilling, creepy.
Jack Caffrey because he is a good man but he has flaws. He is imperfect but moralistic, which sounds strange but it's a successful combination which works and makes him a 'real' character.
Yes. I enjoy his work. He is easy to listen to and all his characters are distinguishable. His accents are excellent and you can get lost in his reading which is how it should be.
I would have loved to have had that luxury. As it was, it was the last thing I listened to before falling asleep and the first thing I reached for on waking up!
I did miss the 'Walking Man' as he is a powerful and wise character. I will wait in anticipation for Mo Hayder's next offering.
"Not for the faint hearted !"
In her usual brilliant style another complex plot
With interesting and believable characters
Well researched and very very clever .
Adrenalin producing probably best not listened
To at night if you want to sleep !
"Well worth it, poppet!"
Great story which begins with many different threads and spins them nicely into a compelling story. Great characters, strong plot, a few twists (though I did anticipate the ending (ish))!
Anything else written by Mo Hayder - her work is excellent.
All of them were excellent, particularly OJ.
Get this - you will not be disappointed. Then get more Mo Hayder.
"Mo Hayder strikes again!"
