A sadistic killer is a #PsychoKiller to me.

Definitely fits into the gritty crime books field. Overall despite the gritty and dark nature of the books, this was an excellent read. I look forward to continuing this series and getting to know the main character better. There is certainly plenty of potential in this series and I would recommend if you are happy with this style of books. @EadieB @Tove_Reads @Kappadeemom @TiredLibrarian

BookDragonNotWorm This series is fantastic! Absolutely brutal!!! 12mo
Andrew65 @BookDragonNotWorm If You enjoy these, and not read them, them I‘d recommend the Robert Hunter Series by Chris Carter. 12mo
Tove_Reads The first book in the series is always a tough one for me. Either it‘s so good that the rest of the series can‘t keep it up, or then I just have to have faith in it getting better. I really liked the book in general (can‘t say I ‘liked‘ the gruesome details per se), but my problem was that there were too many people. Names were flowing left and right and I kept on forgetting who was whom. 12mo

I found this book to be gritty. The setting is Millennium Dome Site, Greenwich, England. Five corpses are found and they are all young woman with no missing persons reported. Hence the sexual serial killer is given the name Birdman, Mo Hayder has refined her craft and used her beguiling imagination. I have found DI Jack Caffery to be very interesting character and look forward to reading more about him in future books. I do recommend this series.

Andrew65 Definitely in the gritty criteria, still working my way through it. 12mo
TiredLibrarian I love this book and the series, but it's definitely not for those with delicate sensibilities 😉 12mo

This #thriller might not be among the "classic" Halloween-y #spookybooks, but boy did this book spook me. I've read most of the other books in the Jack Caffery series. They are good but none of them is as good as this first one. Probably because I didn't yet know what to expect of a book by Mo Hayder.

There are very few books are a big #NO when people ask me for a book recommendation. This book is one of them. I would say it‘s probably one of the darkest, if not the darkest book I‘ve ever read. I still think about this book and not much in a good way! 😳 #getmovin

Kaye Thank you for an honest review. I‘d much rather read these than so many that gush about how terrific a book is. There are lots of books I‘ve liked, but if there are flaws in a book, I‘d like to know before purchasing with ( the Hubster‘s) Hard Earned Money. He doesn‘t care, but I do. 😊 2y

Definitely the darkest and most graphic psychological thriller I‘ve read. I wouldn‘t recommend this to a lot of people. There was a bit of it that I even said yuck out loud. With that I also wouldn‘t say it‘s the fastest paced thriller. It was more of a police procedural to me. I liked it though! I‘d give it a 3🌟

Bookzombie I have read the first two in this series and I think I said yuck both times. They are very dark but I‘m going to continue the series at some point. 🙂 2y
TricksyTails This is the only one I've read. I keep meaning to pick up the next book. I enjoyed how dark it was. 2y

I felt like this one was more interested in exploring gore and the violence and sadism of the perp than putting together an actual mystery. Relied too heavily on gimmicks, and I wasn't in love with any of the characters, sadly.

If you like your thrillers layered and moody, give BIRDMAN a try. I first read this British series because Karin Slaughter mentioned it's one of her favorites; it's similarly dark and occasionally gory, but it also places an emphasis on character.

Fair warning: books 1, 2, and 7 are incredible--there are scenes that still haunt me years later. But the others are much less consistent.

[DELETED] 2232195534 I've meant to read this series for a long time. Good to know what you think about it! 3y
ColleenLindsay One of my favorite crime fiction writers. Just amazing. 3y
misswendyd @kaysreadinglife I highly recommend it! It's top-tier crime writing. The police and medical procedural work is so well done, and the character work is unbelievably good. 3y
misswendyd @ColleenLindsay Mine as well. I hope we get another McCaffery book from her soon! I reread these first two books after I posted this. 3y

Pretty damn good thriller, especially considering this was her debut.Some pretty gruesome scenes, but an interesting protagonist and enough twists to keep it interesting. Not quite at the McDermid or Tana French level yet but I'll definitely read more in this series.

Bookzombie I listened to this one on audio and agree that it was pretty damn good. Also, very gruesome. I plan on listening/reading the rest of the series too. 4y
