Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A bone-chilling new mystery from the acclaimed author of The Devil of Nanking

Mo Hayder , a rising star of hardcore horror fiction, returns with a riveting and macabre novel that explores the evils committed in the name of faith. Journalist Joe Oakes is a born skeptic who makes his living exposing supernatural hoaxes. But his stay with a cult-like religious group on Scotland?s remote Pig Island might be enough to turn him into a believer. When the island erupts into bloodshed, Oakes must abandon everything he thought he knew to discover the secret behind exiled cult leader Malachi Dove, who lives alone behind a wall of electricity and toxic waste on the island?s far end. As the cataclysm of violence crashes down around him, Oakes is ultimately forced to confront the very nature of evil itself.

Synopsis:

You won't have nightmares...because you won't be able to sleep Investigative journalist Joe Oaks is on the trail of a strange creature caught on some amateur film footage: a figure so deformed it can hardly be human. Recently arrived on the remote Scottish island where it was sighted, he is determined to expose the creature as the religious hoax it so obviously must be. But his confrontation, and its violent and bloody aftermath, is so catastrophic that it forces him to question the nature of evil, and whether he might not be responsible for the terrible crimes about to unfold.
