Pig Island by Mo Hayder is probably best described using one word: sickening. Definitely not for the squeamish, this book charts the experiences of a journalist who travels to a remote island off the coast of Scotland to investigate claims that its inhabitants have been practising Satanism. Along the way, as is often the case in crime novels, lots of people die and he meets a girl; but this is chilling in a way that very few books can get away with. Read it just for the novelty value, but not during dinner.
