Greenwich, south-east London Detective Inspector Jack Caffery - young, driven, unshockable - is called to one of the most gruesome crime scenes he has ever seen. Five young women have been ritualistically murdered and dumped on wasteland near the Dome. Subsequent post-mortems reveal a singular, horrific signature linking the victims. Soon Caffery realises that he is on the trail of that most dangerous offender: a serial killer. Beset by animosity within the police force, haunted by the memory of a very personal death long ago, Caffery employs every weapon forensic science can offer to hunt him down. Because he knows that it is only a matter of time before this sadistic killer strikes again ...

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Not for the faint-hearted... what sets Birdman apart is Hayder's talent" * Sunday Express *
"A first-class shocker... a frightening mix of forensics, thrills, analytical police work and poetic images... a young writer in touch with her dark side and a major new talent" * Guardian *
"Wickedly constructed... Her cast of suspects is the most spooky since Dickens... The detail, if you can stomach it, is fascinating" * Daily Telegraph *
"Hayder's vibrant narrative and crunchy characterisation propel the book along to its denouement with fearsome velocity" * The Times *

“Birdman”

I read a lot of Crime/Thriller books but this was really amazing. I couldn't put it down. I took it on holiday with me and started reading it on the plane which is in itself unsual as I find it hard to read in... More

“Gruesome”

Certainly gruesome and definitely a good plot/story line but nearly all the characters were quite nasty and didn't really warm to or care about them. Will probably read the next Jack Caffery at some point though.
