    ETA. As a fan of Mo Hayder in general (The Treatment is my favorite by her and really, really great), I am always excited to see another installment in her Jack Caffery series. This one has been a bit of a disappointment, though; the narrative felt a bit disjointed and even though it moved along quickly with short chapters, at times seemed vague and rushed. I found there wasn’t much of a mystery to begin with, the resolution was rather naïve/simplistic/weak and Flea’s storyline felt like sh [...]

    The cover of this book is creepy, but the book really isn't. There is a nasty character that is revealed at the end. There are some really nice, pleasant, kind characters that might be too lovable. Then there's Jack and Flea, sorting things out, making progress, actually talking to each other! Finally!The chapters are short in this book and it was easy to tell myself, one more chapter, one more, OK, one more.Something that irked me was the use, or overuse, of the word pad. She padded to the bath [...]

    Quite frankly, Mo Hayder scares the bejesus out of me. The first page of her latest book Poppet grabbed me and just never let go. (and check out that creepy cover.)Poppet is the sixth book featuring Detective Inspector Jack Caffery of Bristol, England's Major Crime Investigation Team. "His unit is the one that gets all the murders and difficult cases. The cases that need high-level attention."The opening chapter takes us to a mental institution. Each and every resident is afraid of The Maude - w [...]

    Ever since the publicaton of Birdman, still in the top 10 list of my favourite crime reads ever, I always await the next Mo Hayder title with bated breath. Poppet is the latest in the the DI Jack Caffrey series and fear not if you have not dipped into these before as there is a cogent covering of back story for the new reader. In this new book, Caffrey is drawn into a series of mysterious deaths at a pyschiatric unit, but are lives being lost by human or supernatural hand? Are the patients and s [...]

    "You don't know what it's like, not to have a body to bury.' Something is scaring the staff and patients of Beechway High Secure Unit in the West Country. There is talk of The Maude, a dwarfish creature who sits on chests, whispering poison into vulnerable ears and hearts. Is The Maude responsible for several deaths and self-maimings, or is such behavior to be expected in a place that houses the dangerously insane? AJ, head psychiatric nurse, wonders if the mischief might be human in origin. He [...]

    Six installments into the Jack Caffery seriesd I'm plenty hooked, but unsure if it's more a guilty pleasure or genuinely a good read. As always, the back story (between Jack and MisPer diver Flea Marley) is by far more compelling than the main story (in this case, centering onr a young adult man in a mental hospital accused of killing his parents, and diving his fellow hospital residents to kill themselves.). As always, the usual caveat applies: THESE ABSOLUTELY MUST BE READ IN ORDER! Ms. Hayder [...]

    Well, I think that's it for me.The Jack Caffrey series has yet to return to the punch-in-the-gut intensity as the first two novels, Birdman and The Treatment. I may have mentioned in those reviews that the crime fiction genre has become so saturated that it takes something very special to stand out from the rest. Those two novels did that in spades. In fact, they were so disturbing that I was very selective in who I would recommend them to (yes, I ended a sentence with a preposition. Leave me al [...]

    For the first time since being on I wish we had a half star. This book is probably more of a 3.5 rating than 3 but no where near a 4. The story starts again with some familiar characters and the relationship between them. I love the two main characters in this book and their relationship and dynamic is what keeps me reading the series. I have to say if you are reading this as a standalone you will not have this connection and may find this a tedious part of the story. There is a nice conclusion [...]

    Intensely creepy, compelling and beautifully written, with a truly surprising twist. Nice to see the continuation of the Caffery/Flea story from Gone too. The poppets that feature in the book (I don't want to give anything away) are a truly inspired creation. It's my favourite Mo Hayder novel since The Treatment. Everyone who's waiting for it is in for a real treat.

    Anyone who follow my blog would know that I am a huge fan of Mo Hayder. Whenever she has a new release, I'd rush out to get it and read it the moment I receive it. No kidding. So when I knew her latest Jack Caffery thriller, Poppet, is out, I was so excited that I don't even mind the image of the cover, no matter how creepy it looks. If you have read Mo Hayder's Jack Caffery's series, you'd know that Jack is a brilliant detective of the Bristol Major Crime Investigation Team. What I like about h [...]

    I have completed Mo Hayder's Poppet and I can't help but wonder where she's been all my life. This is the first book I've read by Hayder but the sixth in her highly acclaimed Jack Caffery series. Jack Caffery is a detective for the Bristol Major Crimes Investigation team and is tasked with investigating the disappearance of a high profile model named Misti. While on the other side of town, an insane asylum is being haunted by something, or someone, named The Maude. A little man that sits on the [...]

    There's a palpable sense that this is the book Mo Hayder has been building to with her Jack Caffery series. It's at once darker and creepier than the rest of the series, but it ends on two notes of ineffable beauty and optimism, as though Hayder's offering some relief after spending six novels examining humanity's bleakness. Set in and around a mental hospital whose patients and staff seem to be experiencing something decidedly supernatural, Poppet follows the pattern of Hayder's other books by [...]

    I read The Devil of Nanking last year or the year before and it blew me away. I don't think I slept at all the first night I started it. I wasn't expecting as much of this one but I also didn't realize it was part of a series. I knew it took place in and around a high security mental institution which is what hooked me, and after I figured out it was a detective series it was better than I would have thought possible. I definitely saw the "twist" coming, and I pegged the baddies before the middl [...]

    The hysteria is rising in the Beechway high security psychiatric unit. A spate of self-harming incidents and the death of a patient had stirred up stories of The Maude, a ghostly dwarf who haunts the halls. Left to cover for absent colleagues, senior nurse AJ starts to piece together some troubling facts, leading him to call the in the police… And DI Jack Caffery’s superior is looking for just the thing to pull him from the fruitless search for the missing Misty Kitson.I’ve always known Mo [...]

    I wasn't actually familiar with Jack Caffery before picking up this book (the creepy blurb enticed me nonetheless) and I wouldn't recommend starting with this book (for reasons discussed before) however I would thoroughly recommend this horror-ride detective tale.The story starts slightly awkwardly, on the one hand we have Jack pursuing a series spanning plotline, while AJ an institution attendant starts a cute romance with his boss Melanie (their storylines don't cross until almost 1/3 into the [...]

    Another instalment on Mo Hayder's Jack Caffery series that I cannot give more than 3 stars. I don't understand what this woman was doing with her books.It sounded very promising, with a high-security psychiatric ward delving into the realms of fear and hysteria with the rumour that a dwarf-like creature, called The Maude, was set on punishing and killing the patients. For whatever reason.But the potential was thwarted by the execution. The story drags along the pages, and DI Jack Caffery still h [...]

    In het kort even een paar punten waarom ik dit boek niet hoger waardeer:- De spanning komt te laat op gang. Om en nabij pagina 200 lijkt de auteur pas zin te krijgen in het verhaal, dat deels voortborduurt op een oude zaak met Jack Caffery en Flea Marley. - Met perspectiefwisselingen is niets mis, integendeel. Maar om dat na elke pakweg anderhalf à twee bladzijden te doen en daar dan ook nog kinderachtige hoofdstuktitels aan te geven is buitengewoon irritant.

    Có ma trong bệnh viện tâm thần! Có thể gói gọn bối cảnh quyển tiểu thuyết này của Mo Hayder vào trong câu nói đó. Một bối cảnh thật hấp dẫn cho một quyển thriller. AJ, nhân viên trong bệnh viện tâm thần nằm mơ thấy một con ma quái dị ngồi trên ngực và bóp cổ ông. Và khi một bệnh nhân trong bệnh viện tâm thần đó được phát hiện ra là đã chết trong phòng thì tất cả mọi người đều tin [...]

    Poppet is the next instalment after Gone in the Jack Caffery series and is a terrific high octane read. It starts with strange things happening in the high security unit for mental health patients, Beechwood. Things that are difficult to explain away, nightmarish fables that have truly caught the imaginations of patients and staff alike. It's here we meet head nurse AJ Le Grande who is a big character within the book, so much so that Caffery doesn't really take centre stage for a fair chunk of t [...]

    The latest in the Jack Caffery series finds strange goings on at a psychiatric center. Patients are into self-mutilation, claim to have seen a creature called The Maude, and after two deaths, one of the nurses is concerned. He asks Jack to look into it quietly since involving the police doesn’t sit too well with the owners. AJ’s main concern is the recent release of Isaac Handel who had murdered and mutilated his parents years ago. Isaac makes little voodoo-like dolls called Poppets. Melanie [...]

    To be honest, I initially picked this up because of the scary cover. Luckily, the book turned out even better than I had hoped.My past experience with detective series has been mixed. I've wanted a dark series to sink my teeth into, but with the ones I've read, I couldn't fully get behind our main character. I'm sick of detectives with substance abuse problems, social problems, and relationship problems. Why can't we just have a normal person that does his job. I don't need a hero, just someone [...]

    Mo Hayder has mastered the art of gothic crime novels - my favourite one of hers so far is Tokyo, but Poppet comes next. I was delighted to get it early on the Kindle and I read it fast. Well paced, with a plot split into three parts which eventually all come together, the novel features one of Hayder's favourite characters, DI Jack Caffery. Police Diver Flea Marley is not far, as usual, but don't think you need to have read the other books, this works well as a standlone novel. The plot is unne [...]

    Rating 4.5/5*. It might have been a five, had I not found it took a bit of time to get into it. After a few bad books I was slightly unsure what Mo Hayder would bring to the table. I've read her before, but except for "Tokyo", I've not been particularly taken in. I am now. I want more of her creepy, disturbing and bizarre mysteries.Strange things are going on at a local mental hospital. The patients talk of a ghost that creeps the corridors. Some of them maim themselves and then there is death. [...]

    Like Mo Hayder's other books I really enjoyed reading this. Her twists and turns and psychological details kept me gripped and not wanting to put it down. She had 2 plots running through the book- one concerning the issues at the psychiatric hospital and the other continued on from the last book where Jack Caffrey is still trying to solve the murder of a tabloid celebrity. The only part I felt slightly disappointed in was that the very end of the book happened very quickly (unlike the detail in [...]

    Just love the writing here, it is a book I sat and read in one sitting. As with a lot of books with recurring characters, you should start at the beginning, this one follows on from previous books in so much as different story lines are carried through.The story is set in hospital for the mentally ill, where strange things are happening to the patients and the whispers among them is that "The Maude" is on the loose. AJ, is the senior psychiatric nurse and he is desperate to protect those under h [...]

    This is the second Jack Caffery book that i have read and i really wish that i had started at the beginning of the series.I loved this book although i must admit that the back and forth between the different characters did get a bit frustrating especially when the chapter ended on a really interesting cliff-hanger and i really wanted to know what was going to happen next but i was really good and did not skip forward to find out.I really like Jack Caffery and i also thought that the poppets were [...]

    Another terrific Jack Caffery thriller from Hayder, this time focusing on the strange goings-on at a mental-health ward that may involve a supernatural being known as "The Maude". The writing, as usual, is top-notch and the ending is surprising and tensely drawn out. The only qualm is that the sub-plot involving Flea and her secret (which Jack knows of) doesn't get enough attention, IMO, and ends up feeling more like a distraction than an important focus of the book. Still, the main story never [...]

    Man I had a hard time getting into this book. I usually really enjoy Mo Hayder's stuff, but this one just didn't grip me. The second half of the book was better, but I kept finding myself hoping for more interaction between Jack and Flea because the mystery in the book really didn't interest me.Looking forward to the next book, as the final chapter seemed a set up of things to come!

    So I started out with this book as an audiobook, which did not do it any favors. The narrator made all his female characters sound vapid and whiny, and it realllly annoyed me. I did get to read about the last hundred pages or so after I gave up on the audiobook and checked the book out of the library.I have not read the previous books in the series, so the proto-romance between Caffery and the police diver Flea wasn't really convincing. There was mostly talk of Caffery's limbic system going all [...]

    Mo Hayder has been one of my favourite authors for a long time. She seems to go through peaks and troughs with her productivity, but for the last few years has got back to releasing books on a regular schedule.She is a rare author in that her standalone books are just as strong as her series. The reviews for, “Poppet,” have been mostly favourable. Some were unhappy with the ending whilst others loved the new direction. To say I was intrigued was an understatement.The Blurb:Everything goes ac [...]
