Free Fridays

Categories: Free Fridays



Hayder brings panache to the serial killer detective thriller—pitting a haunted, unflappable London detective, Jack Caffery, against a sui generis serial killer known as the Birdman. When five women’s ritualistically-murdered bodies are discovered within steps of each other, Caffery immediately knows that this will be the case of a lifetime. But most disturbing is the fact that no one seems to be looking for the victims—they don’t fit any missing persons reports.


How is the Birdman choosing these nameless victims? And what must Caffery do to put an end to his unprecedented reign of terror?

Looks like a really scary thriller this time. Thanks for the book, it is a new type of book for me to try out. Love the Free Friday feature, as well as the other great fun things I can do with my Nook.

The Jack Caffery series is terrific (as are all Mo Hayder's books).  I'm delighted that Birdman is a Free Fridays selection, as I hope it will introduce more readers to Hayder's books; my only disappointment is that I have already read the entire series thus far, so no new freebie for me!

Never heard of this Author but will sure download this book to broaden my reading.  Thank you again guys for all of you insight and great Free Fridays.  Every Free Friday book is not for me and I don't expect them to be, but the one's that I have picked I have enjoyed.  Thank you again and keep more thrillers and mysteries coming, as well as other titles no matter what they are.
