9780007364015: The Ho Ho Ho Mystery (Third Pig Detective Agency, Book 2)

The festive follow-up to The Third Pig Detective Agency.

When Father Christmas goes missing on Christmas Eve eve, Mrs Christmas calls on our intrepid hero Harry Pigg to track him down.

What follows is another hardboiled caper featuring fairy tale villains, plenty of red herrings, a few close shaves, a couple of punch ups and a very clever twist.

Aided and abetted by his sidekicks Jack Horner and the genie from the lamp, Harry tries to save Christmas before time runs out.

If only he didn’t have to deal with those bloody annoying elves.

Review:

‘This is undoubtedly the most whimsical hardboiled detective novel ever written, and it's utterly delightful.’ MATT REES author of THE BETHLEHEM MURDERS

‘The Third Pig Detective Agency is a wonderful pastiche of noir-ish detective stories like The Maltese Falcon. The design is an absolute gem, with coffee stains on some pages and a genuinely vintage looking cover.’ www.culch.ie

‘A cross between Chinatown and all the fairy tales you've ever read.’ LIMERICK LEADERReviews of THE THIRD PIG DETECTIVE AGENCY
