From a fun fact about where she writes to a disturbing fact about her (ex)Japanese publisher, Mo Hayder shared some surprises in this week's "7 Questions" column. Read the Q&A to get the full scoop.

Hayder's The Devil of Nanking consistently ranks at the top of our list of most horrific thrillers ever, and her latest novel, Gone, is February's Mystery of the Month. It's the fifth Jack Caffery book, and this time the detective is chasing a carjacker who goes after young girls.

Whodunit columnist Bruce Tierney believes that "Hayder writes some of the most carefully plotted, gripping and downright scary books in the mystery genre."

Do you agree?
