#TheDevilOfNanking #MoHayder

1937 - Nanking Massacre takes place and Grey, a young Englishwoman, comes to Tokyo seeking film footage but Tokyo claims the massacre never took place. Grey finds a survivor of the massacre who is a visiting professor at the university of Tokyo. Grey now needs to gain his trust. Mo Hayder gives us a gritty and harrowing read about a time in history that was very brutal! I also enjoyed a peek at Tokyo. Recommended!

Wolf: Jack Caffery | Mo Hayder
post image
Pickpick

Walking Man finds a dog wandering alone with the words; HELP US; attached to its collar. He calls on DI Jack Caffery to investigate. Caffery is reluctant until the Walking Man promises new information regarding the childhood disappearance of Caffery's brother. The Anchor-Ferrers, a local family, are held hostage in their home. Horrific book from Mo Hayder. Not for the faint of heart! Ending was the best when Caffery got Ewen info. Very surprising!

MrT She doesn't write them quick enough! 3mo
MrT Have you read all of Mo Hayder now? 3mo

Andrew65 Be Thursday at least until I can pick it up at the library. My reading capacity will massively slow down now, as back at school tomorrow. This month most probably read less than half what I read this month. 3mo
EadieB @MrT Yes! This was the last published in 2014. I was wondering if there will be another but I saw she does take awhile between books. 3mo
EadieB @Andrew65 Back to school! Boo hiss! 3mo
Andrew65 @EadieB And some 👎 Currently having a break on the sea at Edinburgh before we head on south later on. 3mo
EadieB @Andrew65 Very nice! August went by so fast! Safe travels! 3mo
Andrew65 @EadieB Thanks, it did! Now I need to be more selective about what I read as limited reading time. 3mo
EadieB @Andrew65 Group and buddy reads will keep you busy, for sure! 3mo
Andrew65 @EadieB And ensure I have to take time to read. 3mo

Mo Hayder takes you to the edge! Stolen car with 11 year-old in the backseat. Is it a carjacking or a kidnapping? Jack Cafferty and Flea Marley race to put the pieces together. Chilling and captivating. Fast-paced plot. Fascinating characters. Shocking ending. 5th book in series. Can‘t wait to read next one. Recommended.

Ritual | Mo Hayder
post image
Mehso-so

Bristol, UK. Not as good as Bk 1 and 2. Boring in parts. Too many sub-plots. I will continue the series, however. Sgt. Flea Marley finds a human hand while diving. She teams up with Jack Caffery. Both Marley and Caffery are flawed as Marley lost her parents to a dive and Caffery is still mourning his brother, Ewen. The Walking Man is introduced. I would recommend to those who love gritty thrillers. Not for the faint of heart.

Andrew65 Finished before me. Overall agree with your review. Too many bits that have to struggle through. 7mo
julesG Agree to your review. 7mo
EadieB @julesG glad to see it wasn‘t just me! 7mo

The Treatment | Mo Hayder
post image
Pickpick

This is 2nd in Jack Cafferty series and is darker and more disturbing than the 1st. Even with the gritty and gruesomeness I will continue this series because Hayder‘s writing is excellent. Pedophile and child abuse are hard to read about and the book is definitely not for the feign of heart. Jack learns more about his brother‘s death and who killed Rory Peach. Recommended for those who love thrilling serial killer books.

Andrew65 I have singularly failed to get to this at all this weekend. Appointing a new Deputy so been stuck in the HR recruitment more and reading application forms, as well as having to finish a library book. 9mo
EadieB @Andrew65 What does a deputy do? 9mo
Andrew65 @EadieB Basically equivalent of Vice Principal (second in command). Deputise for me and work with me to devise and implement strategic direction for school. (edited) 9mo

EadieB @Andrew65 Did you have a deputy before? 9mo
Andrew65 @EadieB Yes but resigned just before Christmas so have had acting person in place. Part of reason been soooo stretched this year. (edited) 9mo
EadieB @Andrew65 Hire someone you can delegate too and who will be capable of helping you with your busy days. 9mo
Andrew65 @EadieB That‘s definitely very high on my agenda. Been a difficult year and a half! Would have sent many schools into meltdown but have maintained strong overall performance but capable of better. (edited) 9mo
EadieB @Andrew65 Great news! Hope you find someone soon! 9mo
Andrew65 @EadieB 🤞Looks a strong field. 9mo
EadieB @Andrew65 Can you give them a probation period and if they don‘t work out be able to hire someone else? 9mo
Andrew65 @EadieB No that isn‘t allowed. 9mo
TrishB Hope you get someone good! My deputy is amazing, helps so much. 9mo
Andrew65 @TrishB Got our shortlist so 🤞 (edited) 9mo
EadieB @Andrew65 Did you start any interviews? 9mo
Andrew65 @EadieB They‘re next week, once we get references. Wednesday 27th, will be a very busy day interviews will run from 8.45 - 6.00 with the different components to the day - lesson observation, data tasks, tour, presentation, interview. 9mo
EadieB @Andrew65 That sounds intense! 9mo
Andrew65 @EadieB An intense post, so yes it is and will be. 😳 9mo
EadieB @Andrew65 The applicant has to teach a lesson? 9mo
Andrew65 @EadieB Yes because this is also a teaching post. 9mo
EadieB @Andrew65 Ok then that makes sense. 9mo

Bookworm83 I always get so excited when I have months when I finish up books I've been reading for awhile. It makes the end of the month's stats so much better 😊 3y
niki.inwonderland Awesome list! 😍 3y
tasha @Bookworm83 haha me too!! And I NEVER make TBR lists for a month because my reading is driven by how I feel at the time. Hence always having 3-6 books on the go at once lol 3y
Bookworm83 @Tasha Yep! Me, too. 3y
