This title is set in Greenwich, south-east London. The Met's crack murder squad, AMIP, is called out by nervous CID detectives to a grim discovery: five bodies, all young women, all ritualistically murdered and dumped on wasteland near the Dome. As each post-mortem reveals a singular, horrific signature linking the victims, officers realize that they are on the trail of that most dangerous offender: a sexual serial killer. Detective Inspector Jack Caffery - young, driven, unshockable - faces both hostility within the force and echoes of his past in this, his first case with AMIP. Haunted by the memory of a death long ago, he employs every weapon forensic science can offer - for he knows it is only a matter of time before this chaotic, sadistic killer strikes again. In this astonishing debut, Mo Hayder has written a novel of frightening and raw intensity which ranks alongside the very best in the genre.

    Bel thriller!
    A volte un po' crudoma realistico.
    il detective protagonista è simpatico e 'umano',con la sua dose di problemi.
    A metà libro sembra di aver capito tutti,ma in realtà dietro agli omicidi delle ragazze c'è molto di più!

    splendido thriller,con una buona descrizione introspettiva dei personaggi, dotati di una loro umanità.Ho chiuso il libro e i personaggi mi sono rimasti dentro: la loro sofferenza e il ritmo incalzante dell'indagine.In alcune parti il libro è decisamente crudo, ma ben scritto nel complesso.Di sicuro leggerò anche gli altri libri di questa bravissima scrittrice.

    A good read for the fast paced reader

    Birdman centers around a the touchy subject of rape and necrophilia, but Mo Hayder does it with style and taste, leaving just enough to make the reader go "Ewwww" and yet enough character build-up to make you want to turn that next page. How's that ...(continue)

    Birdman centers around a the touchy subject of rape and necrophilia, but Mo Hayder does it with style and taste, leaving just enough to make the reader go "Ewwww" and yet enough character build-up to make you want to turn that next page. How's that for a one run-on sentence review?
