This is the 2nd of the Jack Caffery series, and I liked it even better than the first! Once again Jack is called upon to solve a particularly horrific crime. This time it involves rings of pedophiles, and brings forward some of the story of what happened to Jack's little brother (unsolved disappearance, suspect is pedophile neighbor).

Once again, the police detective solving and clues is very well done. The criminals in this book are horrific—the details about the ring of child abusers was terrifying. And finding out some of the back story of Jack's brother was very intriguing.

These books are not for the squeamish—there are lots of gruesome details both about murders and about abuse of children. Without giving away any spoilers, I would say that if you like thrillers, detective novels or books about serial killers you will NOT be able to put this book down!
Wow, this book will get ya. It's the second in the series, following Birdman. I liked Birdman pretty well and so moved on to this one and, man, it was quite a book. It is fairly rare for me to read a book such as this and not have the ending figured out before I get there. This one keeps you guessing, for sure. And I love that about it. Even with some cringe-worthy subject matter (which isn't just gratuitous), I couldn't stop reading. I don't want to include any spoilers so I'll not say much else. I will say though that I've ordered the next two in the series and can't wait to receive them. I'll let that statement stand on its own. One last thing - I do feel compelled to warn potential readers that the subject matter in Hayder's books, particularly this one, is extremely dark and may be disturbing. I don't think that some of the other reviewers quite expected what they found. Not much shocks me at this stage in my life and I'm used to very dark-gritty-underbelly-type literature, but that's not universally true. You have been warned.
This is the second of Mo Hayder's "Jack Caffery" novels and I'm reading them in order. Thus far, the author's work has been enhanced by twisting (maybe that should be twisted) plots and very realistic (and very flawed) characters. I am so glad that I began by reading the first in the series – I'm not sure that you could follow several plot twists without knowing the back story.

A number of reviews here have noted that the paedophilia in this novel is grotesque – there is really nothing that the author writes that is grotesque, it just seems so very unsettling if you overthink the situations (or are, like myself, a father with a son – perhaps the parent of any child). I don't like to give away any details in my book reviews here – that's what the blurbs are for – I will only say that I've been blown away by the first two novels in the series.

However, there is only one reason that I don't give this book five stars...

...the Americanisation of the book is just terrible: it really isn't too much of a problem for Americans to read a "British English" book nor for a Brit to read an "American-English" book. And the changes are often just inconsistent and confusing: on one page a character has tucked a "flashlight" into his coat pocket but the, when he walks up to the dark entrance, he takes a "torch" from the same pocket. I find these changes disruptive to a smooth flow of sentences... it's like a bump in the road that makes you stop for a bit. Wholly unnecessary and, to me, almost offensive. Now don't get me started on my preferences for the proper use of quotation marks!
I have to say, watching DI Jack Caffery is like watching a train wreck (think I've said that before LOL). He just does things and you think - "Noooo, Jack! DON'T!" Yet somehow he still manages to scrape through without being sprung. The subject was a bit icky and dealt with realistically. Mo Hayder writes enthralling thrillers that can be a bit gut-turning, but as a thriller it's an excellent read.
If you thought the first book was rough going with its serial killer/rapist/necrophiliac plot, you should know the sequel is even harder to take with its pedophilia plot. Hayder never gets too graphic, but describing other people’s reactions to the child rape as they watch is harrowing anyway. And this isn’t just child rape but a twist on it that’s so repellent, I’ve kind of blanked it out. Maybe this is because there’s another subplot that made me squirm more with a mentally disabled person mistreated. There was one angle that I decided if Hayder did what I feared she was going to do, I’d never read her again. When it ended, I thought she copped out by leaving it hanging, so I read the last chapter again. If I interpret it right, she actually let happen what I was begging her in my mind not to do. But she did it in such a subtle and clever way, that it’s really kind of brilliant, even if horrendous. The writing and plotting is amazing, plus there are some interesting rape discussion points. I'll be back for more, just not soon. Bechdel test: I think it failed.
This book is everything that the other reviews have said. Unless you have a very strong stomach for graphic violence against children, do not read this book. I could not finish it. I wanted to find out what happened to the detective's brother (and I don't know if that is revealed) but I couldn't finish the book. I also had a big problem with the violence in the main character. This book is full of such vile things that I actually found myself questioning the mindset of the author, and I don't know that I've ever done that before. I honestly wish I could unread some of the things I read here.
