‘Books such as Birdman and Skin crackle with Hayder's expert blend of social realism and atmospheric nuance... Her novels cast spells as no other novels quite do... despite the gory premises that ignite these books — most often, the luridly detailed adventures of serial killers and creative sociopaths — Hayder's novels oddly are not depressing. Instead, they leave you in awe of her courage. It's as if she has willed herself to stay awake all night long while everybody else sleeps, keeping her eyes open and her reflexes sharp in order to witness the worst of what our fellow creatures might do.’ Julia Keller, Chicago Tribune (17.02.12)
