Ritual | Mo Hayder
post image

“Hayder . . . moves to another level in this spellbinder. With characters so complex, so fascinating that they could populate a dozen novels, she sends readers into a demimonde of ritual magic, desperation, guilt, and death, all exquisitely composed. . . . Ritual is brilliant, dense, scary; definitely one of the best crime novels of [the year].”—The Globe and Mail

BookDragonNotWorm I love her books! They're so twisted! 1w
deeannloso @BookDragon Me too! I am reading (listening) to her books while waiting for the new Chris Carter book to come out in August. His books are really twisted. 1w

“Acclaimed author Michael Robotham conquered international best-seller lists with this electrifying thriller. After a woman is brutally slain, investigators bring psychiatrist Joe O'Loughlin in for expert consultation. Joe is shocked to discover the dead woman is a former patient of his who cried rape when he rebuffed her sexual advances.” This is a great series by Michael Robotham! I highly recommend it.

Because for a woman who‘s lost everything, what is there left to lose? She‘s about to find out.
