The cases that need high-level attention. The opening chapter takes us to a mental institution. One of the things I like about reading settings that took place in an asylum is one could never expect what would happen in there. The patients are not reliable and plus the high secured and confidentiality state of the place, you just wouldn't know who to believe.

Detective Inspector Jack Caffery is looking for the corpse of a missing woman. He knows all too well how it feels to fail to find a loved one’s body. When AJ seeks Caffery’s help in investigating the trouble at Amberly, each man must face a bitter truth in his own life. Before staring pure evil in the eye. Contents.

But when the staff realize that he was connected to a series of unexplained episodes of self-harm amongst the ward’s patients, and furthermore that he was released in error, they call on Detective Jack Caffery to investigate, and to track Isaac down before he can kill again. Will the terrifying little effigies Isaac made explain the incidents around the ward, or provide the clue Caffery needs to predict what he's got planned?Mo Hayder is renowned for conjuring nightmares that sink under the skin, and in Poppet she has delivered a taut, unbearably suspenseful novel that will not let readers go.

In the Beechway High Security unit, even the staff are starting to lose it. Recent incidents of patients committing self harm have everyone talking about the Maude (a spirit they are all afraid of). AJ LeGrande (head of the nursing staff) has noticed an increase in staff calling out of their shifts. When one of the patients dies of a suspected heart attack, the tension gets even worse. AJ starts to worry that an actual person is behind the injuries and deaths, not a spirit and not coincidence. The director of the unit, Melanie Arrow doesn't want AJ getting the police involved; she is worried about losing her job. But, he takes Detective Jack Caffery into his confidence and tries to convince Caffery that there is a real danger out there.

It took me a couple of chapters to get into this book. Another book sitting on my kindle for almost a year and I didn't remember why I bought it. But, I ended up loving this book. The characters were interesting and I enjoyed reading from both Caffery and AJ's points of view. By the time I was halfway through the book, I didn't want to put it down. And I had no idea what twists were coming until it was almost too late.

This is book 6 in the Jack Caffery series. I had no idea until after I finished reading it. I'm not sure if I will end up reading more of the Jack Caffery series or not. I still have a lot of other books on my TBR list.

Recommended to:
Adults who enjoy suspense thrillers and crime novels. There is a bit of gore, but nothing too overwhelming.

I am having difficulty trying to convince myself to pick-up one of the 100s of unread books that I already own, instead of immediately purchasing the next Jack Cafferty novel, Wolf. That is the highest praise that I can give Mo Hayder's sixth installment in the Jack Cafferty series. Hayder is simply one of, if not THE, best crime writer going. (Camilla Lackberg is also worthy of a mention). The stories are well-written, the plots are compelling, and the continuing relationships become richer. This installment concerns a series of unusual deaths and injuries occurring at a local psychiatric hospital. Cafferty shares the the stage with AJ, who is a dedicated and lonely nurse supervisor at the psychiatric hospital. Cafferty gets involved in attempting to solve these unusual events, while at the same time trying to confront his ever-complicating relationship with Flea Marley. The mystery bullets you through the book, while the relationships compel you to go back and re-read. I have enjoyed all of Hayder's books, but found this one to be particularly good. It may be the amount of time away from Hayder made me appreciate the multiple levels that her books work on. At the end, I wanted to continue on not only with Cafferty and Marley's lives, but AJ's.

Poppet is the first book I've read in what I assume is a series of books with Jack Caffery as the main character and I must admit, I was blown away by the novel. The plot was twisted enough to keep me reading through the night wanting to find out what happens. The characters, though unfamiliar to me, are well-drawn, interesting people; I would enjoy reading books based on the characters other than the Caffery series because the people who inhabit this book really drew me into their stories, aside from the main plot of the book. At first, I thought this was going to be a supernatural thriller, (but not to spoil anything for new readers) it turned out to be much better than a ghost story.
Great writing by Mo Hayder. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes thrilling detective novels and well-written characters. If you've read any of the other Caffery books, this is a must-read; however, if you are unfamiliar, it is okay to start with Book 6 and work your way back, too.

In 2008, I first discovered Hayder's darkly electrifying skill in the first novel in the Jack Caffery series, Birdman (I highly recommend starting from there and reading this series consecutively). This book marks the sixth addition to this thrilling series. Though it has been almost two years since reading Gone (the fifth book in the series), Hayder's novels are the kinds that linger in your memory, and with this rather chilling cover, it is a gripping read. There are some reminders about the previous novels, but for those who have forgotten about Misty's death, these reminders may not be introduced early enough (even I started to wish that I had re-read the series again from start to finish - and I will, some day, as that is my favorite way to experience a series). With a backdrop largely set in a mental institution, this book amps up the horror quotient along with its police procedural actions. The new characters are well-developed and it is also intriguing to see more of Jack interacting with Flea.

The brief chapters aid the novel's fast pacing along and the spine-tingling imagery makes this book sure to offer nightmares (especially for those who find dolls - or the titular poppets - creepy) if set aside just before bed. The Maude makes for an intriguing urban legend that adds to the tension quite exponentially. This dark mystery fits in nicely with the rest of the series and though its intensity doesn't quite match those of the earliest novels, it is still an intriguing and tense read. Hayder's plot twists unpredictably and the ending comes in a breathless - and surprisingly satisfying (almost uncharacteristically uplifting) way. Hayder's rather sinister imagination continues to prove as engrossing as ever. I am looking forward to the seventh installment in the series, Wolf (Jack Caffery).
