Perfectly and wonderfully paced, and imaginatively plotted and written . . . There are twists and turns aplenty here—not so many as to be confusing, but just enough to keep the reader reading incessantly from first sentence to last paragraph. . . . Read Wolf; you simply will never forgive yourself if you don’t.”—Joe Hartlaub, Bookreporter.com Another adventure for Caffery, a protagonist much like James Lee Burke’s Dave Robicheaux or Paul Cleave’s Theo Tate, doomed to work "in the presence of evil." Mo Hayder is a master of ratcheting up tension throughout a book—to the point that one must simply finish it before doing anything else. Such is the case with Wolf.”—George Easter, Deadly Pleasures (Rating: A-) We are soon into a world of conspiracy, snakes, teenage secrets, gruesome wounds, a hermit in the woods, a canine bellyful of jewellery, camp comedy, more snakes, a near-drowning, procedural police work, dream and nightmare sequences and voyeuristic torture scenes. (If you are not au fait with Hayder’s work, you should be warned that she liked to linger and this adaptation honours that commitment.) But there is never any explanation of what a donkey pitch is – unless, of course, I missed it as I fought to keep my head above the rising tide of absurdity.Juliet Anne Virginia Stevenson is known for her appearance in the film Truly, Madly, Deeply, a role in which she was nominated for the Bafta Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role.

Wolf Review

As with the earlier books in the series, this really is a thriller worthy of its title, if you ignore the plot glitch, and will keep you on the edge of your seat all the way through. Quite where the flawed Caffery will go from here, I’m not quite sure – but along with a legion of others, I’m looking forward to finding out. Two of the grisly murders that take place in Wolf (Tuesday, 9pm, BBC One) happen in an area called “the donkey pitch”. The murders are not inherently funny but every time a gnarled police officer or suited and booted detective speaks gravely of the donkey pitch murders, or what happened at the donkey pitch, I wondered if they might have been prudent to choose a less asinine location. To me, the word donkey is more goof than oof. In his professional life, Caffery is the sort of blunt, straight-talking copper who tells a victim of domestic violence that unless she reports her husband, she’ll end up a decomposing corpse and the coroner will have to do all sorts of grotesque things to her body. Just telling it like it is, babe. Caffery has recently returned to London from Cardiff, because of the brother and the unsolved disappearance and, as always with thrillers such as this, he’s gruff and private because there’s something we don’t know about what he left behind.A] destined-to-be classic . . . Hayder’s work and characters are worth the unending nightmares they will inspire.”— The New York Times Book Review
