Surprised so many did not care for this story. The ending totally surprised me. I thought this book was a good read. Can't wait to try another from this author.

Skip this one...I like her others but this one is not worth the time.

I usually like the books that Mo Hayder has put out but found with this one, I was pushing myself to just finish it.... The ending was infuriating and afterwards I found myself regretting reading it the whole way through.

Reading this book, from the beginning I started to wondering - why am I wasting my time in reading that? Mystery, pig heads, religion, torture, horror, there is everything is this nonsense.
Something that is good - is that the writer certainly has
talent describing places.
