Poppet - Mo Hayder It's good to see Mo back to top form after the rather poor Gone (no 5 in the Caffery series) The events in Poppet take place inside Beechlands mental health unit and the setting adds some great story lines and wonderful characters. Mo Hayder still has the ability to shock and surprise her readers and Jack Caffery in addition to bringing a killer to justice has some gremlins from his past to come to terms with. All in all a highly enjoyable read especially for me as I live in Bristol and know most of the locations mentioned...in fact if I am not mistaken Jack's MCIT headquarters is the old SWEB (South West Electricity Borad) building on Feeder Road...
