What a story! When I first started reading, I found it a little hard going -- mainly because of the use of London vernacular -- but as I got into the story, I got used to the language and found myself anxious to get on with the story. A real thriller with one of the most dispicable, vile bad guys I have ever encountered! Often times, the details were very disturbing and gory, but I could not put the book down. I would highly recommend this to any reader of hard-core crime stories. I was also surprised that this was written by a woman.

OHMAHGAWD!!! I'm a Bentley Little fan so I know gore, the groteque, the unimaginable. Ms. Hayder just ripped me a new one with her subtle start then growing with intensity. Very disturbing, even more when evidence is revealed. There is a twist, of course, and you never stop reading until the end!

An exciting thriller - but surprisingly so. When the killer's P.O.V. was given, I was disappointed, but kept reading... and was shocked to find a thriller still within the thriller! Obviously written by a very talented woman and very exciting with a good job in keeping the serial killer's P.O.V. consistent and exciting.

By far one of the most complex and best thrillers I have ever read - and I read a lot of thrillers. I generally figure out a book early on and Mo Hayder kept me on my toes till the end. Rich and tragic characters with a multi-layered plot. A must read!!!

A well written and engrossing thriller but just a bit too graphic for this Granny!
