DI Jack Caffery and police diver Phoebe "Flea" Marley return in Hayder's second thriller in the "Walking Man" series (after Ritual). Caffery, a man plagued by a troubled professional past, and Marley, an insecure risk taker, team up to solve the mysterious suicides that occur in one neighborhood. Caffery begins to suspect something sinister and perhaps even supernatural may be at work. Meanwhile, a missing-persons case turns out to be connected to Marley's brother, forcing her to make difficult and dangerous decisions about how to handle the situation. Hayder's works are usually not for the weak-stomached, and this one is no exception. Readers who can tolerate graphic descriptions will be rewarded with a complex, well-written mystery involving characters on both sides of the law.
Verdict: Taut, complex suspense with graphic material, this is especially recommended for those who enjoy Karin Slaughter and John Connolly.
