Detective Inspector John Caffrey is the lead detective on “The Birdman” case. Five woman are found dead in a wasteland. The findings in the post-mortum link them and Caffrey is on the trail of a serial killer. Caffrey is also fighting his own personal demons involving a death in the family from long ago. This novel is definitely full of action and suspense. The fact that the reader gets in the killer’s head and knows who it is before the protagonist, is interesting and unique. Hayder’s style is successful, however, I don’t think she is in the Deaver, George or Connelly league. I think the character development was a bit weak. Seeing as this was Hayder’s debut, I would be inclined to try another to see if she improves with experience.
