A serial killer stalks the streets of London in this "top-notch debut thriller"--the first Jack Caffery novel from the acclaimed author of Gone (Kirkus Reviews).   In his first case as lead investigator with London's murder squad, Det. Inspector 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.   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.   A finalist for the Edgar Award, Birdman explores the darkest reaches of the human mind and introduces a fascinating detective to the world of British crime fiction.   "Treading the grisly path blazed by Thomas Harris in 1981 with Red Dragon, promising newcomer Hayder crafts a blood-curdlingly creepy debut thriller." --Publishers Weekly, starred review   "A deftly plotted assault on the nerves . . . Birdman preys on the reader's expectations expertly, and Hayder handles her story's complicated time scheme with enviable assurance. Graphic, disturbing, splendidly readable." --Kirkus Reviews… (més)

Buio, inquietante, mozzafiato, alto livello di tensione e stile potente, non si riesce a smettere di leggerlo. Una grande scoperta, diciamo che le stelline sono da 3 a 4.

I downloaded this book as a Free Friday selection for my nook from Barnes and Noble. It took a bit to get into and it was a bit gory in parts, but all in all, it was a good read. I won't rush out to get the next book in the series, but at some point, I wouldn't mind reading more by this author. ( )

Nice to read a mystery that's unravelled enough that I'm left wondering how it appears to have been solved halfway into the book. Look forward to reading more of Hayder's books. ( )

CW: I really don't know where to begin. Necrophilia, animal cruelty, horrifically described rape and murder scenes. Very disturbing book. ( )

Undoubtedly one of the most visceral listening experiences I have ever had. Birdman, published in 2000, tells the story of a murder investigation after the mutilated bodies of five young women are found near the Millenium Dome in London. The author spares the reader/listener none of the gory details as the case turns out to be even more complicated and gruesome than originally suspected. And the main protagonist of the book, Deputy Inspector Jack Cafferey, has some problems of his own. Only toward the end do things falter just a bit, with some plot elements that seem a bit contrived. In some ways, this book could be compared to the Silence of the Lambs, but it makes that book look like a children's story. It has more in common, in fact, with Red Dragon, which had not yet turned Hannibal Lecter into a mythological superhero of evil.

When I was done with Birdman, my first reaction was, maybe I don't want to go down this road with this author again. But then I can't get it out of my head, and I am a bit awed by what the author achieved in her very first novel. Just look up Hayder on Wikipedia and be a bit more astounded at the career path that brought her to writing novels. It is very sad to know that she died--at the early age of 59--last year (2021) of motor-neuron disease. Her other words are apparently just as extreme as this one. Build up your courage and read it. Or listen to the audiobook, as I did, which was extremely well read by Damien Goodwin. ( )
