I received this from HarperCollins to review. It's an ARC with a different cover.

From Amazon:
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.

This story is a split narration (or maybe 70/30) between Oaksey, a journalist trying to get to the bottom of what's going on at Pig Island, and his wife Lexie, an attention starved woman. Oaksey has an ulterior motive though. He wants to find out what has happened to his enemy of many years ago who used to run the cult on the island, Malachi. This is the man who promised that he would destroy Oaksey before he died. What results is a worldwind of craziness. Animal beheadings, mass murders, this is what you get yourself into when you read this book.
Pig Island has you on the edge of your seat from the very first word. As you go through the book, you start turning the pages quicker and your heart starts beating faster. You can't wait to figure out how it's going to end and you get thrown for such a complete loop at the end you don't even realize what's hit you until it's over.
Although other Hayder works are fantastic reads, Pig Island is her best. But it's not for the feint of heart. There are satanic rituals, mass murders, and a lot of gore. Any sick shit fan will love this book.

WOW. What a thriller!!! This story justs keeps on building and building. Not for the faint of heart, Hayder has a lot of blood and gore and disgust. This is by far the most intelligent of her books to date. Hayder's writing just keeps on getting better and better

Thanks Lauren! This looks fantastic.

What a creepy book. I really didn't get into it very much. I'm not a big fan of this type of thriller/mystery. But I do recall a lot of people on bookobsessed loved it. I guess it's just not my cup of tea.
