							Journalist Joe Oakes makes a living exposing supernatural hoaxes, but when he  visits a secretive religious cult on a remote Scottish island, everything he  thought he knew is overturned. While investigating a strange apparition caught  briefly on film wandering the lonely beaches of Pig Island, 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 group's isolated  founder, Malachi Dove. The violent consequences of Oakes's transgression are so  catastrophic that it forces him to question the nature of evil and to face a  terrible reality: was Dove responsible for one of the bloodiest crimes Scotland  has seen in years?

"A novel that taps into the current fascination with all things supernatural and questions our assumptions about a number of subjects, from faith healing to cultish religious groups and society’s definition of evil." - The New York Times Book Review

"Mo Hayder, who writes dark, perfect thrillers ... now spins a shivery tale about a cult on the west coast of Scotland, where the weather nourishes bleak menace." - New York Daily News

"Another astonishing mutation of the crime thriller ... [Pig Island] masterfully exposes not only the horror but also the human frailty at the story's core." - The Boston Globe
