This latest from Hayder is another installment in her long running Jack Caffery series It's just as dark and somewhat gruesome as the others, so do be prepared. It's also not one I'd recommend using as a starting point with the series, though I will say that it's entirely possible. Hayder is a master plotter in my humble opinion. She always seems to be two steps ahead, something the reader will only realize in continuing further into the series.
Poppet can essentially stand on its own but the book picks up in the aftermath of the previous installments so parts of the plot do rely on events that have taken place in past titles.Read more ›
AJ, the head psychiatric nurse doesn't want to know why the patients are here, he doesn't want to know what crimes they may have committed to get incarcerated at Beechway, he treats them all with dignity and respect, no matter what they may have done in the past. When the patients start worrying about being haunted by something called 'The Maude', AJ wants to get to the bottom of things, but things go from bad to worse, with deaths and disfigurements of patients. Is there really something otherworldly that is responsible for the deaths or is the answer somewhere closer to home?
This is the sixth Jack Caffrey book, but don't worry if you haven't read any of the others, this works well as a stand-alone novel and I would say that AJ was our main protagonist here, with a few cameo roles from Jack.
The plot twists and turns like any good mystery should and leaves you guessing right till the end. It's been a long time since I've read a mystery where I hadn't guessed the twist a mile away, here I didn't and I was so pleased to be surprised!
AJ was a wonderful, sympathetic character, trying his best to care for his charges in the face of budget cuts, lack of staff who refused to cover the night shift and an old building that is crumbling around them. I adored AJ's Aunt Patience, who always made him a big breakfast whenever he got home, no matter what time of day it happened to be.
I loved the book, but it took a while to get into the flow of it because it was written in the present tense.Read more ›
Hayder continues her fantastically disturbing writing in Poppet. The beginning was so uncomfortable that I actually had to put it down for a day before I went back to finish it. It's too bad that the reviewers who complain about "not enough Jack" can't get beyond the fact that Hayder writes non-formulaic, original stories. I frankly don't want a "Jack Cafferty" series a la Spenser or other predictable, familiar plots. I hope Hayder continues to explore the strange and bizarre minds of her anti-heroes in her future novels.

This book kept me interested and I had a hard time putting it down. Asylums are most always a great location for a creepy story and Beechwood certainly fit the picture. Read morePublished 28 days ago by Ernie's Mom

This book was good, but could've been better. The ending I'll admit was unpredictable, but there were too many endings. It seemed like it wouldn't end.Published 8 months ago by Richard Poirier
I can't say what I really liked about this book without major spoilers. So just let me say that when it seems like it's slowing down in the middle, it really isn't - you just don't... Read morePublished 8 months ago by Gregory F. Pfister
