Synopsis of this title

Nominated for a CWA dagger

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.

Reviews of this title

quotes

"Mo 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

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

"Hayder's writing is, as ever, briskly paced and fluid.The sense of place is assured (and) the twist in the tail, as it were, comes like a hammer blow right at the end, clever and unexpected." The Times

"Profoundly creepy and creepily convincing. Though gruesome enough to satisfy even the most hardcore horror fan, this rigorously imagined novel is also full of apt (if bleak) detail and graced with a perfect plot twist at story's end. Hayder offers both a riveting story and a nuanced, distinctily modern look at secrecy and publicity, belief and skepticism, normal and taboo." Publishers Weekly (starred review)
