Synopsis of this title

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 Millenium Dome.

When a post-mortem examination reveals a singular, horrific signature linking the victims, officers realize that they are on the trail of the most dangerous offender known to the force: a sexual serial killer.

Detective Inspector Jack Caffery, young, driven, unshockable, finds himself facing both hostility within the force and echoes of his past in this, his first case with AMIP. He is tortured by the knowledge of a death long ago that he might have prevented. Now, as he employs every weapon that forensic science has to offer, he knows he has only limited time before the chaotic, sadistic killer strikes again.

Reviews of this title


'A British crime novel with a sentimental edge, and one of the best things I've read recently. Although this is Hayder's first novel, she writes with the confidence of a professional of long standing. …….She has the ability to walk the mean-streets walk as well as talk the mean streets talk. …..Here at last is a female voice in British crime who neither refers back to the golden age, nor believes that it is necessary for the female characters to be irritating…Bridget Jones clones.' The Independent on Sunday

'BIRDMAN is a frightening book. As the conclusion is acted out before us, we can scarcely breathe because of the cumulative effect. Mo Hayder draws the suspense out far longer than most writers would dare - and masterfully. If I had to sum this book up in a single word, it would be WHEW!' Washington Post

'A writer in touch with her dark side and a major new talent.' The Guardian

'Extraordinarily good. It is how Hayder moves her story from opening discovery to inevitable conclusion that shows her skills. She has expert control over the pace of her narrative and stage manages a large cast of characters with precision.' Daily Mail
