Publisher's Summary

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' 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?

    Story
    "Thought this was a parody for a while....it isn't"

    I thought this book was a dark parody for most of the listen. I have yet to read this author but have heard much of him...too bad I chose this book as my introduction. The reactions of the characters to the main crux of the storyline seem preposterously overblown...I didn't know whether to take it seriously or point and laugh. All in all, I was disappointed when I figured out that I was supposed to feel scared...or at least *tense*..all along. I wasn't. I was just frustrated that I wasted a credit on this piece of poo.

    *SPOILER ALERT*
    So, I guess the premise of this story is that there are some people out there who are born with a vestigial tail. As a medical practitioner, the first thing that pops into my mind is "Big whoop...you want scary? Let's re-arrange some chromosomes." But evidently, having a vestigial tail is a VERY BIG DEAL and...evil ensues? Or, just some very bad behavior? I don't know - but a medical semi-anomaly is hardly spine-tingling. When it was revealed that the Big Scary Monster is really just a person with a birth defect the story went from scary to just silly and a little mean. I wouldn't recommend this book. Not even if it was on sale.

    "I thought I was a Hayder fan..."

    This is absolutely terrible! Couldn't even finish it! The characters are terrible, the story line is terrible and the narrator isn't much cop either. Mo, I'm not angry, just very disappointed!!!
