Mo Hayder könyvei a rukkolán


Mo Hayder - Pig ​Island
Journalist ​Joe Oakes makes a living exposing supernatural hoaxes. A born sceptic, he believes everything has a rational explanation. But when he visits a secretive religious community on a remote Scottish island, everything he thought he knew is overturned. Questions mount: why has the community been accused of Satanism? What has happened to their leader, Pastor Malachi Dove? And perhaps most important, why will no one discuss the strange apparition seen wandering the lonely beaches of Pig Island? Their confrontation, and its violent and bloody aftermath, is so catastrophic that it forces Oaksey to question the nature of evil, and whether he might not be responsible for the terrible crime about to unfold. In her compulsive and haunting new novel, Mo Hayder dares her readers to face their fears head on and to look at what lurks beneath the surface of everyday normality.

Több évvel ezelőtt egy máig megoldatlan, szörnyű kettős gyilkosság történt a környéken. Vajon van összefüggés a két esemény között? A megoldás apró kulcsait az olvasó lapról lapra fölszedegetheti. Mégis csupán az utolsó oldalakon nyílik ki a titok zárja ebben a mesterien felépített krimiben. Azt hiszed, tudod a megfejtést? Tévedsz! Végig az orrodnál fogva vezetnek. "Első osztályú borzongás." Guardian "A frászt hozza rád." Elle "Végig fogod rettegni." The Times MO HAYDER művei azoknak valók, akik szeretik a tökéletesen megszerkesztett, sosem egyértelmű szituációval indító krimiket. Találóan fogalmaz a Booklist kritikája: "Jóval tovább veled marad, mint az utolsó lapozás."
