by Mo Hayder
Part of the Jack Caffery series
Greenwich, south-east London. Detective Inspector Jack Caffery - young, driven, unshockable - is called to one of the most gruesome crime scenes he has ever seen.
Five young women have been ritualistically murdered and dumped on wasteland near the Dome.
Subsequent post-mortems reveal a singular, horrific signature linking the victims.
Soon Caffery realises that he is on the trail of that most dangerous offender: a serial killer.
Beset by animosity within the police force, haunted by the memory of a very personal death long ago, Caffery employs every weapon forensic science can offer to hunt him down. Because he knows that it is only a matter of time before this sadistic killer strikes again ...

Review by moosenoose
I love Mo Hayder and I loved this book! Hayder has a way of really taking you out of your confort zone and making your imagination run riot. Just when you think it can't get anymore gruesome, it does! I don't agree with some comments that Hayder stories are too gory. The shock and horror is what makes her one of the best female writers of our time. It's nice to find an author who isn't afraid of upsetting or offending - keep it up!
Review by LivedeviL
The book doesn't start off great, I found it a bit of a chore to read but once you are nearing the end it really starts to pick up pace and I realised how well Mo Hayder did at fleshing out the characters. You really start to understand the emotions they are feeling so in that respect Mo did an excellent job.I will be reading the next story, not just because I have it, but because I want to read it.
Review by TheoClarke
Well-written nasty prurient novel of necrophilia, paedophilia, racism, and misogyny.
