AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Sal’s being tried out as a hitman and b eing dumb’s no problem. Baz is a wannabe celebrity chef – he can’t cook, and he’s got a secret. Fayette’s fourteen. She just wants to kill her step-father and have fun. Pig’s Blood is about people with dreams. It ends badly. People die. A confronting yet comic novella that develops fully the darkness and violence that lurks in Robb’s non-fiction books, as well as the irony and wit that also characterises his non-fiction writing.'
