I didn't see that coming.

Pig Island - Mo Hayder

 

 

It was all her!  I think.

And we never find out WHY!  Though we can guess.

 

A religious group buys an island and cuts themselves off from the rest of the world. 

Then divides up the island because they think their leader has broken a rule and gone nutty after his wife dies.

Or maybe nuttier.  Couple of opportunistic whack jobs from the get go.

 

It felt a bit choppy and disjointed, but a nice slow burn to the end.
