Summer 1984. The Sweetmeadows estate, already struggling through the ongoing miners' strike, is rocked by the murder of a baby boy.
Journalist Clare Jackson follows the story as police bungle the inquiry and struggle to contain the escalating violence. Haunted by a personal trauma she can't face up to, Clare is shadowed by nine-year-old Amy, a bright but neglected little girl who seems to know more about the incident than she's letting on.
As the days go on and the killer is not found, Clare ignores warnings not to get too close to her stories and, in doing so, puts her own life in jeopardy.
Lauren Parsons, commissioning editor at Legend Press said: "This Little Piggy is a gripping look at a community in turmoil and is full of secrets, tension and emotion. This book is simply unputdownable".
