Reviews

Mo Hayder 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 Mo Hayder is the closest thing we've got to Stephen King, which is close enough...the goriest thriller writer this side of the pond * Mirror * She has created the most warped and bloodthirsty visions of psychopathic behaviour. No matter how much you might despise yourself for getting sucked into such places, she is brilliant at making you read on * Daily Telegraph * Hayder's writing is, as ever, briskly paced and fluid * The Times * Hayder has always had the unrivalled ability to conjure up grotesqueries that chill, but here she outdoes herself * Observer *
