Review:

Reviews of THE THIRD PIG DETECTIVE AGENCY

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

‘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 LEADER
