SJI Holliday has been reading crime fiction since she was able to hold a book. She writes short stories and her debut novel, Black Wood was published in spring 2015. You can find out more at www.sjiholliday.com.
‘I believe, from what I can hear, that either my daughter or my wife has just been attacked. I don't know the outcome. The house is silent.’
Fourteen years ago two teenage lovers were brutally murdered in a patch of remote woodland. The prime suspect confessed to the crimes and was imprisoned.
Now, one family is still trying to put the memory of the killings behind them. But at their isolated hilltop house . . . the nightmare is about to return.
The main storyline centres on the Anchor-Ferrers’ family who are imprisoned in their own home. Meanwhile, a madman who they thought was locked up apparently lurks outside the walls. But all is not what it seems and the novel twists and turns throughout, building fear and anticipation in equal measure.
In this seventh book in Hayder’s Jack Caffrey series, the detective is back on centre stage after sharing space with Flea Marely over the course of the last few books. Interestingly, Flea's name is not mentioned at all, but their 'almost' relationship is hinted at, tauntingly, for anyone who hasn’t kept up with their ongoing story. The Walking Man is back, of course, and this time he plays a pivotal role, tying together threads of the current story with events from Caffrey's past.
As always, Hayder draws her heroes and villains incredibly well - from the intelligent and resourceful Oliver Anchor-Ferrers, to the sexy disfigured barmaid who manages to leads Caffrey onto the right path, with only a brief detour that only serves to confirm to him how he feels about the very absent Flea.
The ‘wolf’ in question refers to a weapon developed by Oliver Anchor-Ferrers. But it is Caffrey who is the lone wolf, taking leave from the police and only calling in their help at the last possible moment…
It’s all pretty implausible stuff, yet frighteningly real regardless. As is her way, Hayder leaves the reader gasping right at the very end, desperate for more. If you’re a Caffrey fan – then this is THE book for you. Stunning.
