Rob Ashman - This Little Piggy_cover

Book Description:

Kevin Palmer is a regular sort of guy, or he was until his life fell apart. His wife, his money, his business and his reputation are all taken away from him. He tries to fight back and ends up in prison.


 There he concocts elaborate fantasies to wreak vengeance. He is sent to work in an abattoir and the final piece of the jigsaw falls into place with chilling consequences. Then a cruel twist of fate changes everything.


 DI Rosalind Kray is battling her own demons having returned to work following a brutal attack. She finds herself on the trail of a sick and twisted killer and cracks the macabre pattern of murders. But her boss is unconvinced.


 Kray has Palmer squarely in her sights. But he has other ideas …


 Can Kray break him in time to save the final victim?


 Time is running out.

My Thoughts:

This Little Piggy is the second book in the DI Rosalind Kray series. Whilst the author does give enough background I would still advise reading them in order, especially as this is one dark and twisted series you won’t want to miss.

Having read and absolutely loving Faceless the first book in the series, I was very eager to read the authors next book. My only concern was how could he even come close to how brilliant the first book wass? Well I needn’t have worried as yet again the author has delivered a first class read that delivered thrills and chills a plenty.

The story flicks between Roz and her team investigating the case and the killer himself. It was quite weird getting inside the killers head as I was disgusted with what he was doing and yet I had a certain empathy for him. Not that of course that made what he was doing right, as far from it but my goodness it makes for some exciting reading.

This Little Piggy is yet another adrenaline filled, nail biting read that had me on the edge of my seat. The author is fast earning himself the title of  king of creating the most sick and twisted serial killers. Another cracker of a read that the most die hard fans of serial killers are going to devour.

My thanks to Bloodhound Books and NetGalley for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.

Author Bio:

Rob is married to Karen with two grown up daughters. He is originally from South Wales and after moving around with work settled in North Lincolnshire where he’s spent the last twenty-two years.

Like all good welsh valley boys Rob worked for the National Coal Board after leaving school at sixteen and went to University at the tender age of twenty-three when the pit closures began to bite. Since then he’s worked in a variety of manufacturing and consulting roles both in the UK and abroad.

It took Rob twenty-four years to write his first book. He only became serious about writing it when his dad got cancer. It was an aggressive illness and Rob gave up work for three months to look after him and his mum. Writing Those That Remain became his coping mechanism. After he wrote the book his family encouraged him to continue, so not being one for half measures, Rob got himself made redundant, went self-employed so he could devote more time to writing and four years later the Mechanic Trilogy is the result.

When he is not writing, Rob is a frustrated chef with a liking for beer and prosecco, and is known for occasional outbreaks of dancing.

Rob published the Mechanic Trilogy with Bloodhound Books in 2017 and will be releasing three new books during 2018. These are titled: Faceless, This Little Piggy and Suspended Retribution.

  1. I keep misreading stuff lately, dunno what’s going on. So when i looked at the cover i was like “listen to the sequel”… what? 😀
    I really like stories with the POV of the murderer. So horrible but fascinating.
