The Pig Did It

By John Caldwell

This book is written splendidly. I enjoyed the way the author uses the language to create the right atmosphere and to give the situation described in the book (the finding of a skeleton of murdered person) so light and even funny. This is done in a  way that seems completely natural and uncontrived. This is apparently the first of a trilogy. I feel like this book could definitely stand on its own, and I would not seek the other ones "to see what happens" (even though the book includes the first chapter of book number two). However, if I happen to find that next book, I will be happy to dedicate a few hours to reading it. [214 pp.]
