9780857500793: Wolf

[A] destined-to-be classic . . . Hayder’s work and characters are worth the unending nightmares they will inspire.” The New York Times Book Review

Edgar Award winner and international best-seller Mo Hayder is known for her nightmarishly dark, impeccably-plotted thrillers. In Wolf, now in paperback, Hayder ratchets up the terror yet another notch with a bone-chilling novel about a family held hostage in their country home. When a vagrant the Walking Man, a recurring character in Hayder’s fiction finds a dog wandering alone with a scrap of paper with the words HELP US” attached to its collar, he’s sure it’s a desperate plea from someone in trouble and calls on Detective Inspector Jack Caffery to investigate. Caffery is reluctant to get involved until the Walking Man promises in exchange new information regarding the childhood disappearance of Caffery’s brother. Meanwhile, the Anchor-Ferrers, a wealthy local family, are fighting for their lives in their remote home ten miles away. As their ordeal becomes increasingly bizarre and humiliating, the family begins to wonder: is this really a random crime, or have they been chosen for a reason?

The home invasion novel to end all home invasion novels . . . Not unlike John Connolly’s Charlie Parker novels or T. Jefferson Parker’s Charlie Hood books. Wolf is exceptionally original in premise and nightmarish in its rendering.” BookPage

Mo Hayder is a master of ratcheting up tension throughout a book to the point that one must simply finish it before doing anything else. Such is the case with Wolf.” Deadly Pleasures (Rating: A-)

Mo Hayder’s books featuring Jack Caffery are always an entertaining and engaging read, and this one doesn’t disappoint.” Euro Crime

Review:

Praise for Wolf:

[A] destined-to-be classic . . . Hayder’s work and characters are worth the unending nightmares they will inspire.” The New York Times Book Review

The home invasion novel to end all home invasion novels . . . Hayder neatly splits genres with this series, borrowing in equal measure from suspense and horror, not unlike John Connolly’s Charlie Parker novels or T. Jefferson Parker’s Charlie Hood books. Wolf is exceptionally original in premise and nightmarish in its rendering.” Bruce Tierney, Bookpage

Mo Hayder is a master of ratcheting up tension throughout a book to the point that one must simply finish it before doing anything else. Such is the case with Wolf.” George Easter, Deadly Pleasures (Rating: A-)

Mo Hayder’s books featuring Jack Caffery are always an entertaining and engaging read, and this one doesn’t disappoint.” Euro Crime

Hayder’s best Jack Caffery thriller yet . . . A home invasion novel like no other . . . Dark and twisty, this gripping crime novel by an Edgar Award winner is an outstanding read, whether Jack is a new character to the reader or an old friend. For fans of John Connolly or Robert Crais.” Marianne Fitzgerald, Library Journal (starred review)

Perfectly and wonderfully paced, and imaginatively plotted and written . . . There are twists and turns aplenty here not so many as to be confusing, but just enough to keep the reader reading incessantly from first sentence to last paragraph. . . . Read Wolf; you simply will never forgive yourself if you don’t.” Joe Hartlaub, Bookreporter.com

This grisly tale of a family held hostage cements Hayder’s reputation as a queen of terror. Caffery is pitted against a chillingly evil villain whose brutal actions are both physical and psychological. Several skillfully interwoven plotlines culminate in a shocking ending. . . . A must-read for those who like their thrillers dark and gritty.” Joyce Morgan, Romantic Times (4½ stars)

If her thriller Wolf is any indication, Mo Hayder has thoroughly mastered the art of reader manipulation. . . . You can’t help but obsessively turn pages. . . . Mo Hayder is one fine story teller. . . . The book is a wild ride, a ride well worth taking.” Jack Goodstein, Blogcritics.org (4 out of 5 stars)

Hayder . . . once again lures DI Jack Caffery into evil’s morass. . . . Hayder’s story is complex. . . . Sexual obsession, rejection as fuel for violence and revenge on the part of an arms dealer all add to a chilling, ominous atmosphere in which mangled characters lurk. . . . Another adventure for Caffery, a protagonist much like James Lee Burke’s Dave Robicheaux or Paul Cleave’s Theo Tate, doomed to work in the presence of evil.’” Kirkus Reviews
