Gripping and terrifying

I loved Mo Hayder's early novels but have been so disappointed by the most recent ones that it took me a long time to decide to download this one. I am so glad that I did and cannot wait for the next Jack Caffrey. The beginning is so creepy and terrifying that I almost gave up listening but it is this creepiness that entices you in to the characters and the story. It is so excellently constructed that for most of the novel I really did not know where it was going and was constantly surprised. Unlike many current crime novels Hayder does not resort to cliches but uses plot and excellent characterisation to keep you listening. Jot Davies also narrates this excellently and I hope he continues to narrate the Caffrey series.
