  • "Als Zelda Lornton in der psychiatrischen Klinik von Bristol tot aufgefunden wird, glauben alle zu wissen, wer daran schuld ist - der Geist von Beechway, von dem erzählt wird, dass er nachts die Patienten in ihren Zimmern heimsucht und sie dazu treibt, sich selbst zu verletzen, manchmal sogar tödlich. AJ, der verantwortliche Pfleger, will an diese Gerüchte nicht glauben, doch die Klinikleitung hält ihn strikt an, die mysteriösen Vorkommnisse für sich zu behalten. Als dann der psychisch schwer kranke Isaac Handel unerwartet entlassen wird, hat AJ einen Verdacht. Isaac ist ein verurteilter Mörder, der seine Eltern auf brutale Weise umgebracht hat. Nach seiner Entlassung ist er plötzlich unauffindbar. Plant er erneut zuzuschlagen? AJ sucht Hilfe bei Detective Inspector Jack Caffery, der ganz und gar nicht an Geister glaubt ... Mo Hayder, 1962 in Essex geboren, verliess mit fünfzehn ihr Zuhause, um in London das Abenteuer zu suchen. Sie hat später viele Jahre im Ausland verbracht, unter anderem auch in Tokio, wo sie eine Zeit lang in einem Nachtklub arbeitete und für eine englische Zeitung schrieb. Sie studierte Filmwissenschaften an der American University in Washington D.C. und später Creative Writing an der Bath Spa University. Mit ihrem Debüt, dem Psychothriller "Der Vogelmann", wurde sie über Nacht zur international gefeierten Bestsellerautorin. Seither hat sie ihren Ruf als brillante Spannungsautorin weiter gefestigt. Die Autorin lebt heute mit ihrem Lebensgefährten und ihrer Tochter in der Nähe von Bath."
  • "Mo Hayder is internationally renowned as a master of chilling, seamlessly plotted thrillers that keep the reader glued to the page long into the night. Poppet is Hayder at her most terrifying: a gripping novel about the search for a dangerous mentally ill patient on the loose. Everything goes according to procedure when a patient, Isaac, is released into the community from a high-security mental-health ward. 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 has planned' Mo Hayder is acclaimed for conjuring nightmares that sink under the skin. In Poppet, she has delivered a taut, unbearably suspenseful novel that will not let readers go."@en
