I believe, from what I can hear, that either my daughter or my wife has just been attacked. I don’t know the outcome. The house is silent.

Fourteen years ago two teenage lovers were brutally murdered in a patch of remote woodland. The prime suspect confessed to the crimes and was imprisoned.

Now, one family is still trying to put the memory of the killings behind them. But at their isolated hilltop house . . . the nightmare is about to return.


My View:

My pick as Mystery/Thriller of 2014! Hayder creates a narrative with chest crushing tension and complexities and twists that you will just not see coming!!! Hayder is a brilliant storyteller, a wonderfully creative and mesmerising writer who has conjured up images of such intense feelings that I had to take a break from this book so I could breathe calmly again before picking the book back up – read this in one session – with breaks. You will not be able to stop thinking about this long after you have turned the last page over. This is an award winner – guaranteed!


Mo Hayder I am your newest fan – I will definitely seek out your earlier books – I am anticipating the delicious evilness already.

  1. Carol – So…let me guess. You enjoyed this? 😉 – In all seriousness I am glad you thought it was such an absorbing read. It’s always nice to discover a new favourite.

    • Margot – this was fantastic – in case you have any doubts 🙂 I really love a good psychological thriller where the menace is more implied, more in the imagination than actual (but dont get me wrong there was actual menace in this too) but the creation of tension – just perfect!
