Mo Hayder, WOLF
Although I don’t read a lot of thrillers, having a preference for mysteries, I’m glad I read this one. The novel casts a suspenseful spell and has a plot that presents unexpected twists and turns until the end. Without giving away anything, a family in England has their home invaded by two men bent on preventing the man in the family from publishing a book revealing sensitive information about their boss. At least this is the way it appears.
The characters are well developed and the scenes are carefully set. Aside from the Walking Man sections, that introduce a jarring supernatural note, the book is a taut and satisfying thriller. I would go back and read others in this series.
