It took me a couple of chapters to get into this book. Another book sitting on my kindle for almost a year and I didn't remember why I bought it. But, I ended up loving this book. The characters were interesting and I enjoyed reading from both Caffery and AJ's points of view. By the time I was halfway through the book, I didn't want to put it down. And I had no idea what twists were coming until it was almost too late.
This is book 6 in the Jack Caffery series. I had no idea until after I finished reading it. I'm not sure if I will end up reading more of the Jack Caffery series or not. I still have a lot of other books on my TBR list.
Adults who enjoy suspense thrillers and crime novels. There is a bit of gore, but nothing too overwhelming.
The characters are believable and you never find yourself backing up because you forgot who someone was. This is the first Mo Hayder book I've read and it became obvious that I should be reading the books in series as there is one side story that, to me, didn't fit or have any seeming relationship to the main story. I kept wanting it to tie in somehow, but it never did. So, in the end that bit felt like a waste of time. (Again, my fault for not reading the series).
About three quarters of the way through you work out what is going on - I'm not sure if that's intentional on the part of the author, but its pretty obvious. Otherwise this was a good, fairly quick read.
The brief chapters aid the novel's fast pacing along and the spine-tingling imagery makes this book sure to offer nightmares (especially for those who find dolls - or the titular poppets - creepy) if set aside just before bed. The Maude makes for an intriguing urban legend that adds to the tension quite exponentially. This dark mystery fits in nicely with the rest of the series and though its intensity doesn't quite match those of the earliest novels, it is still an intriguing and tense read. Hayder's plot twists unpredictably and the ending comes in a breathless - and surprisingly satisfying (almost uncharacteristically uplifting) way. Hayder's rather sinister imagination continues to prove as engrossing as ever. I am looking forward to the seventh installment in the series, Wolf (Jack Caffery).

What a ridiculously twisted mind.
