She thought it was pork. She was wrong.
The first time hapless food inspector Emily Underwood meets butcher Frank Pinch, he’s not got much at all in his display counters. But what he does have is a rather unusual plan to restock his shelves. The next time they bump into each other, he’s won an award for his sausages but is running out of meat.
Can Frank keep up production of his unusually tasty sausages? Will Emily discover the source of Frank’s award-winning meat? And what will happen the next time she tries to inspect his butcher’s shop?
Book 1 in the Rub-a-Dub-Dub trilogy, this deliciously British dark comedy will change the way you look at sausages forever.
This is dark humour at its darkest…
Frank is a butcher, his brother Tim is a pig farmer. Due to a shortage of pigs – Brexit related – there’s a shortage of pork.
Emily is a newbie Health Inspector and her bumbling mishaps with ‘eccentric’ food producers are cringeworthy and funny…
There is then an accident on Tim’s farm, and all of a sudden the supply of ‘pork’ improves and Frank’s customers are loving the new sausages!!!!
This will make you laugh and then feel quite ill at times……not sure I’ll be able to eat sausages ever again !
