The acclaimed author of The Devil of Nanking returns with a riveting, disturbing thriller of religious fanatics, hoax debunkers, and the dark side of belief. Journalist Joe Oakes makes a living exposing supernatural hoaxes, but when he visits a secretive religious community on a remote Scottish island, everything he thought he knew is overturned. On the trial of a strange creature caught briefly on film, so deformed it can hardly be human, Oakes crosses a border of electrical fencing, toxin-filled oil drums, and pigs' skulls to infiltrate the territory of the groups' isolated founder, Malachi Dove. Their confrontation, and its violent aftermath, is so catastrophic that it forces Oakes to question the nature of evil and whether he might be responsible for the heinous crime about to unfold. Startling and uncompromising, Pig Island confirms Mo Hayder as one of the most talented, compelling thriller writers now working.

Skip this one...I like her others but this one is not worth the time.

I usually like the books that Mo Hayder has put out but found with this one, I was pushing myself to just finish it.... The ending was infuriating and afterwards I found myself regretting reading it the whole way through.

Reading this book, from the beginning I started to wondering - why am I wasting my time in reading that? Mystery, pig heads, religion, torture, horror, there is everything is this nonsense.
Something that is good - is that the writer certainly has
talent describing places.
