A runaway pig is about as explosive a piece of news as there is to be found in Dacus. That's just one reason why Avery left her small Southern surroundings in the first place. But home is where the heart is, and since her high-profile trial in Charleston has ended, she's more than ready for some R&R-until a series of grisly murders unfolds at a local housing development, and Avery's called onto the case. Now she must weed through a tangled web of troublemakers-from local brass and newspapermen to real-estate honchos and construction workers-to track down the killer who, like the infamous two-and-a-half-foot tall, black potbellied pig, remains on the loose...
“Death with eccentric Southern charm.”
"Murder and mayhem, served up with Carolina barbecue and hush puppies.”
“The batter thickens on this highly seasoned chicken-fried clue fest.”
