Pig Island by Mo Hayder
"The alarms first went off in my head when the landlord and the lobsterman showed me what had been washed up on the beach."
Journalist Joe Oakes makes a living exposing supernatural hoaxes. But what he sees when he visits a secretive religious community on a remote Scottish island forces him to question everything he thought he knew.
Why have the islanders been accused of Satanism? What has happened to their leader? And why will no one discuss the strange creature seen wandering the lonely beaches of Pig Island?
In Pig Island, Mo Hayder dares you to face your fears head on and to look at what lurks beneath the surface of everyday normality. It's about the unspeakable things people do to each other." -- from the back cover
This was a very good thriller with lots of twists and turns. I liked the ways the characters interacted and I definitely did not expect the ending.
