This Little Piggy- Rob Ashman-Crime 5*
A man is found murdered in a most unusual way. Acting DCI Kray thinks there is more
to this than first meets the eye- and what met the eye wasn’t pleasant. Kevin’s wife
has thrown him out as she wanted the good life which he couldn’t give her. After
being a successful businessman he is now working in an abattoir (some descriptive
scenes) and there he lives out his fantasies of what he would like to do to certain
people. As ever Rob grabs you from the start with an intriguing plot and wonderful
characters (or not so wonderful in one case). His style of writing is easy to follow
and I could see this as a gripping  T.V drama. A plot to keep you in suspense, a
lead character with tenacity and determination ( I especially enjoy a female lead)
and scenes to keep your mind more than active. Another brilliant read from Rob,
I very much look forward to the next one.

This Little Piggy blurb

Kevin Palmer is a regular sort of guy, or he was until his life fell apart. His wife, his money, his business and his reputation are all taken away from him. He tries to fight back and ends up in prison.

There he concocts elaborate fantasies to wreak vengeance. He is sent to work in an abattoir and the final piece of the jigsaw falls into place with chilling consequences. Then a cruel twist of fate changes everything.

DI Rosalind Kray is battling her own demons having returned to work following a brutal attack. She finds herself on the trail of a sick and twisted killer and cracks the macabre pattern of murders. But her boss is unconvinced.

Kray has Palmer squarely in her sights. But he has other ideas …

Can Kray break him in time to save the final victim?

Time is running out.
