The Butcher

Remember that nice joint of pork you devoured for your Sunday lunch? Well, what if it wasn’t pork…?

Emily Underwood has just started work as an inspector for the Environment Agency. As the new girl, she’s struggling hard to find her feet, and one or two minor disasters don’t help. From machete-wielding restaurant owners to rioting football fans, her first few months don’t go as expected. Then she meets two lovely gentlemen from the country.

Frank is a butcher, and Tom runs a small pig farm with its own bucolic abattoir beyond the roses and sheds of their ramshackle farmhouse. Business is booming, and the brothers are doing quite well, in spite of the lack of labour, or even the rather conspicuous absence of pigs.

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

The second book in the series – The Baker – is available now. The final book (cunningly called The Candlestick Maker) will be released in 2019. The Butcher is available in e-book, paperback and audiobook format via Amazon – just click on the button below to view in your local Amazon store.

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