Publisher's Summary

Remember that nice joint of pork you tucked into for your Sunday lunch? Well, what if it wasn't pork...

Frank Pinch is a butcher. Not a very successful one, what with Brexit and everything, but he still knows how to carve a joint of meat. His brother, Tom, is a pig farmer with very few pigs to his name. The farm they both live on is struggling now that the United Kingdom is out of Europe. Even the migrant workers have stopped coming - the legal ones, anyway - and the brothers are forced to use illegal labour to keep the farm afloat. After a horrible accident in one of the pig sheds, Frank and Tom come up with a novel way of disposing of the resulting body. But it doesn't quite go as planned. 

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. When she crosses paths with Frank and Tom Pinch, things get a whole lot worse. 

From the author of Blind Justice, this deliciously funny dark comedy will change the way you look at sausages forever.

So in the moment

In a world (well a country) where life is so unexpected all the time and the future is not clear this book hits the mark.
A laugh out loud romp through something that all of us may have joked about but only one person wrote it. FAB
