The porcine Philip Marlowe (or is he the swine Sam Spade?) is back, in the festive follow-up to The Third Pig Detective Agency
When Father Christmas goes missing on Christmas Eve eve, Mrs. Christmas calls on our intrepid hero Harry Pigg to track him down. What follows is another hardboiled caper featuring fairy tale villains, plenty of red herrings, a few close shaves, a couple of punch ups, and a very clever twist. Aided and abetted by his sidekicks Jack Horner and the genie from the lamp, Harry tries to save Christmas before time runs out. If only he didn't have to deal with those annoying elves.
