More About the Author

Mo Hayder has written some of the most terrifying crime thrillers you will ever read. Her first novel, Birdman, was hailed as a 'first-class shocker' by the Guardian and her follow-up, The Treatment was voted by the Times one of 'the top ten most scary thrillers ever written'. Mo's books are 100% authentic, drawing on her long research association with several UK police forces and on her personal encounters with criminals and prostitutes. She left school at 15 and has worked as a barmaid, security guard, English teacher, and even a hostess in a Tokyo club.

She has an MA in film making from the American University in Washington DC and an MA in creative writing from Bath Spa University. She now lives in England's West Country and is a full-time writer. For more information on Mo Hayder and her books, see her website at www.mohayder.net.

The 7th novel in the Jack Caffrey series and unfortunately he's missing for large chunks of his own story and that's a shame.

The plot is certainly dark and violent enough, plenty of that surreal creepiness Mo Hayder's so good at, but Wolf reads like two separate stories almost until the end with very little to tie the two parts together.

On one hand Caffrey's out there relying on the brilliantly evoked Walking Man, a regular throughout the series, to help him finally solve the riddle of his brother's death. On the other hand there's a family suffering extreme psychological torture at the hands of some very dubious characters while a decidedly nasty serial killer is on the prowl...or is he?. Although Caffrey's drawn towards the mystery of the family it's slow going and some of the links are stretched to breaking point.

Mo is at her best when she's dealing with Caffrey. When he features in the novel she hits her stride and Wolf becomes all I expect from her. She's not managed the story of the family quite so well. It begins strongly, ramps up to exceptional in places, but then loses it's way and becomes less and less believable. I'd switched off to everything apart from Caffrey before the end.

What is perfect in this novel is the story of a little dog. I can't say much more without leaving spoilers. The way Mo uses Bear to create horror and empathy is absolutely spot on and I fell in love with that little character.

Wolf is a good read but it's bumpy and I missed Flea Marley and her eerie underwater search scenes.

Wolf is Mo Hayder's seventh Jack Caffery book and is as amazing as all the previous books in the series. Jack is still searching for his brother's remains and this book finally gives closure to it at the end of the book. He is unwillingly drawn into looking for the owners of a hurt dog on the behest of The Walking Man in return for vital information. Concurrently, we are drawn into the abduction and imprisonment of the Anchor-Ferrers family in their remote mansion in the countryside. They are subjected to unthinkable mental torture and it becomes clear that the dog belongs to this family. Each page builds tension and the characters' fear and despair almost becomes tangible.
The book is gory and fast paced as one would expect from Mo Hayder's work. It's a fantastic read and I would highly recommend this to anyone who loves a good thriller series. Although it can be enjoyed as a standalone, it's by far more beneficial to read all the books in the series. I cannot wait for the next instalment. Thanks Mo Hayder for an awesome read.

Was in two minds whether to bother with this after Poppet and reviewers mentioning cruelty to the dog in this story. However, I gave it a go and it was okay. The cruelty to the dog is not extreme and there is a happy ending for Bear. She is arguably shown as much disregard by her owners. The story as a whole is not terribly interesting or thrilling. It starts from a five year old girl's point of view which nearly put me off, as the author appears to have very little idea of how a five year old speaks. Bad grammar is rather a lazy way of conveying the thought processes of a five year old. Anyway, the dog is rescued, the walking man is re-introduced and the story kicks off.
The posh folks are hostages in their own home and the baddies are bad. There are various shifts in who is really the baddie and I admit I didn't work out who the biggest baddie of all was until nearly the end, but this may be partly because I couldn't have cared less by then. I was glad that Caffery 'decided' to leave Flea out of his investigations this time, as after Poppet, that character is dead in the water, forgive the pun. The Misty saga has also, hopefully reached its long, drawn out end and we won't be hearing from her mother again. The walking man is a character that doesn't work for me, along with Caffery's ability to seek him out - only when he wants to be found - for a wisdom spouting session round the camp fire.
It is all rather meaningless and tedious. Caffery appears to find out what happened to his long lost brother, but is he really willing to accept this version of events from people who could tell you it was raining, and you would still have to look out the window to check. Caffery of course, puts the main mystery together and resolves the situation almost single handedly.

3.0 out of 5 stars (3.5 stars) "We want you to be scared" 24 April 2014
By Roman Clodia TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
Mo Hayder is an uneven writer for me: some of her books are terrifying with a potent emotional kick (Birdman, The Treatment, Gone, Poppet), others fail to work - this is somewhere in between.

It's good to see the Misty Kitson story finally (finally!) laid to rest, and I'm glad that Flea Marley who's never worked for me as a character never made an appearance.

The main story is gory and scary in parts but it also feels a little half-hearted as if Hayder is writing on auto-pilot. Elements of the plot replay bits of The Treatment, and the final twist reminds me of an old Ruth Rendell whose name I don't want to mention as it would be a spoiler.

So not the best of Hayder's books, but it's good to see Jack Caffery back in a slightly edgier place than he's been in in the last couple of tales. He still has the potential to be one of the most darkly interesting protagonists in contemporary crime fiction and I hope Hayder pushes him further rather than letting him settle.
