Summary

In an unassuming house, on a quiet residential street in south London, a husband and wife are discovered imprisoned in their own home. Badly dehydrated, they’ve been bound and beaten. Worse still, their young son is missing. When DI Jack Caffery of the Met’s AMIT squad is called in to investigate, the similarities to events in his own past make it impossible for him to view this new crime with the necessary detachment. As Jack attempts to hold his own life together in the face of ever more disturbing revelations, the real nightmare begins….
Horrifying, unforgettable, and intense, The Treatment is a novel that touches the raw nerve of our darkest imaginings.

very good sequel to "birdman"

i bought this book after finishing bridman and i was not disappointed.



again, well-paced and excellent narration, and the primary topic is difficult to comprehend (i'm saying no more to avoid spoiling).



i would certainly recommend (for reference, i like robert crais (my favourite), steven dunne, christopher fowler, 'the killing' was immense, and nesbo's 'headbunters'.)



as i noted on my review of "birdman" i've now gone for "tokyo" as the reviews for the other jack caffery novels don't praise the (different) narrator.

Edge of. Seat stuff

Very well narrated and the storyline twists and turns continuously right up to the end I’ll have to get the third book and probably the fourth book.
It’s a hard listen and not to be taken lightly showing a Seedy mentality of the world that most of us ignore because if it’s fear but if you like thriller and a bit of shock factor give Mo a go

Great writing, but beware visceral violence

Mo Hayder is a considered detailed and really quite amazing genre writer. But in my view her stories are extremely violent, dark, disturbing and viscerally distressing. Not unlike JK Rowling's descriptions in The Silk Worm where the violence is alarming troubling and upsetting.
