The only evidence they have to go on is a missing cell phone, a stolen book, the victim�s letter opener, and an ugly pair of Alpaca wool mittens.

Editorial Reviews

Pearls Cast Before a McPig - Sullivan McPig
The writing is decent and the plot engaging. It's got all the elements I like to see in a good murder mystery: a weird murder, lots of suspects with suspicious behaviour, red herrings, clues that are open to interpretation, and to top it all off, a quirky investigator who has to make sense of it all to catch the killer.
Catherine is a tough, but very likeable, lead character and her dry sense of humor makes this book not just a suspenseful read, but a funny one as well.
