Birdman showcases Hayder at her spine-tingling best as beloved series character Jack Caffery tracks down a terrifying serial killer. In his first case as lead investigator with London's crack murder squad, Detective Jack Caffery is called on to investigate the murder of a young woman whose body has been discovered near the Millennium Dome in Greenwich, southeast London. Brutalized, and mutilated beyond recognition, the victim is soon joined by four others discovered in the same area - all female and all ritualistically murdered. And when the postmortem examination reveals a gruesome signature connecting the victims, Caffery realizes exactly what he's dealing with - a dangerous serial killer.

Professional reviews

"BIRDMAN is a grisly thriller not for the faint of heart. Hayder's debut novel, set in London and Greenwich, is filled with raw intensity, keen psychological insights, and forensic detail. Listeners will be convinced by all the characters--from the medical examiner and the diabolical serial killer to Jack Caffery, a wounded homicide detective working to solve one of the most horrifying cases in the department's history. Damien Goodwin delivers unique voices for the myriad characters with perfect timing. His skill with dialogue intensifies the plot's slick twists and turns. With inflection and whispers, Damien creates disturbing images that will haunt listeners. K.A.T. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine"
