    "very good sequel to "birdman""

    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.

    "Far too long"

    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....

    Story
    "Brilliant! The Mo Hayder books are so gripping."
    Would you listen to The Treatment again? Why?

    Yes, because the story is so complex that there will be more to take in.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters are flawed and the story line is full of twists.


    Which character – as performed by Damien Goodwin – was your favourite?

    DI Caffrey


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    This is so different.

    Story
    "A grim tale but kept me listening"
    If you could sum up The Treatment in three words, what would they be?

    Insightful, haunting, addictive


    What other book might you compare The Treatment to, and why?

    I have only just started reading this author and so would have to say 'Poppets' by the same author.
