Birdman (Jack Caffery #1) by Mo Hayder
In his first case as lead investigator with London’s crack murder squad, Detective Inspector Jack Caffery is called on to investigate the murder of a young woman whose body has been discovered near the Millennium Dome in Greenwich, south-east London. Brutalized, mutilated beyond recognition, the victim is soon joined by four others discovered in the same area—all female and all ritualistically murdered. And when the post-mortem examination reveals a gruesome signature connecting the victims, Caffery realizes exactly what he’s dealing with—a dangerous serial killer.
I was recommended by a few people to read this series. With trepidation, I started the long and winding road of the Birdman journey.
I will admit, I nearly gave up due to the gruesome atrocities in the book. But I am glad I never as you have to look through those and read into the storyline itself. DI Jack Caffery has just been given the job of lead investigator in this gruesome killing. They find bodies that no one expects to be like they are. You have a sick and twisted and perversed person out there who is sticking something into these bodies.
Now, is there 1 killer or more in this story. I won't say, but find out for yourself if you're daring to open a Mo Hayder book to find out about THE BIRDMAN.
