The Butcher

She thought it was pork. She was wrong.

The first time hapless food inspector Emily Underwood meets butcher Frank Pinch, he’s not got much at all in his display counters. But what he does have is a rather unusual plan to restock his shelves. The next time they bump into each other, he’s won an award for his sausages but is running out of meat.

Can Frank keep up production of his unusually tasty sausages? Will Emily discover the source of Frank’s award-winning meat? And what will happen the next time she tries to inspect his butcher’s shop?

Book One in the Rub-a-Dub-Dub series, this deliciously British dark comedy will change the way you look at sausages forever.

This is brilliant. Dark humour, delicious characters – the author has the gift of working ‘laugh-out-loud’ humour into a compulsive story.
