Crime Swine is a dark comedy collection of short stories that parody hard-boiled detective fiction, except it’s set in an alternate universe in the 1940s and all the characters are animals. Farm Noir! Each story is a case taken on by a pig private eye—Crime Swine—who was written in the spirit of Sam Spade or Phillip Marlowe. Once the reader is acclimated to the setting, the stories get more complex, more dark, and definitely a lot more funny.
Crime Swine takes us back to the hard-boiled detective stories of the 1930s, but with a twist. I enjoyed the adventures of Crime Swine, and look forward to the next exciting installment!
