9780143113607: Pig Island

Journalist Joe Oakes makes a living exposing supernatural hoaxes. A born sceptic, he believes everything has a rational explanation.But when he visits a secretive religious community on a remote Scottish island, everything he thought he knew is overturned. Questions mount: Why has the community been accused of Satanism? What has happened to their leader, Pastor Malachi Dove?And perhaps most important, why will no one discuss the strange apparition seen wandering the lonely beaches of Pig Island? Their confrontation, and its violent and bloody aftermath, is so catastrophic that it forces Oaksey to question the nature of evil, and whether he might not be responsible for the terrible crime about to unfold. In her compulsive and haunting new novel, Mo Hayder dares her readers to face their fears head on and to look at what lurks beneath the surface of everyday normality. Pig Island is about the unspeakable things people can do to each other.Brace yourself for a terrifying read.

Review:

" Mo Hayder has a profound ability to shock and surprise her readers, and Pig Island surpasses anything she has written before. She's the bravest writer I know" (Karin Slaughter)

" Mo Hayder is the closest thing we've got to Stephen King, which is close enough...the goriest thriller writer this side of the pond" ( Mirror)

"She has created the most warped and bloodthirsty visions of psychopathic behaviour. No matter how much you might despise yourself for getting sucked into such places, she is brilliant at making you read on" ( Daily Telegraph)

"Hayder’s writing is, as ever, briskly paced and fluid" ( The Times)

"Hayder has always had the unrivalled ability to conjure up grotesqueries that chill, but here she outdoes herself" ( Observer)
