THE CASE OF THE PIG IN THE EVENING SUIT (Dumfries Detective Book 1)

The Dumfries Detective Trilogy is not really a cozy murder/mystery. However, there is little or no swearing and no graphic sex – and best read in order.

When a dead pig, dressed in an evening suit, is found in a storm drain in the sleepy Scottish town of Dumfries, Jin cannot hold his curiosity at bay. He decides to investigate. It is a bad decision: it puts his life in danger.

Jin Johnstone is not really a detective: it’s just that people of the town come to him with their problems. Sometimes he charges for his services. It depends. It’s not as if he needs the money.

Already undertaking a task to find a missing son, Jin’s search through town, with its many colourful characters, brings him into contact with a beautiful and mysterious woman; a woman who fires up unprecedented and unwelcome desires in him.

Then another body is found.

Told in the first person, this high-paced, multi-layered, quirky murder/mystery drips with a distinct sense of place. Its many twists and turns evolve quickly into a thrillingly tense and topical story.
