Kate Weller´s boss, Nate Price, has some exciting news: Julian Frazier, a friend of one of the agency´s wealthy clients, has invited the Nate Price Investigations team and their partners on a trip of a lifetime to his home on Elysian Island, an exclusive retreat off the Georgian coast. But there´s a catch. Frazier has written his own murder mystery script, and the PIs must work out whodunnit. As they´re about to discover, though, the murder Frazier wants them to solve is a real cold case, and there´s a killer twist that isn´t in the script . . . Unable to reach Elysian Island and her co-workers, Kate is sure that someone wants her to stay away. Can she stop a ruthless killer and uncover the truth behind a deadly game?

A master of both distilled insight and utter nonsense (The Believer), Ian Frazier is one of the most gifted chroniclers of contemporary America. Hogs Wild assembles a decade´s worth of his finest essays and reportage and demonstrates the irrepressible passions and artful digressions that distinguish his enduring body of work. Part muckraker, part adventurer, and part raconteur, Frazier beholds, captures, and occasionally reimagines the spirit of the American experience. He travels down South to examine feral hogs and learns that their presence in any county is a strong indicator that it votes Republican. He introduces us to a man who, when his house is hit by a supposed meteorite, hopes to ´´leverage´´ the space object into opportunity for his family, and a New York City police detective who is fascinated with rap-music-related crimes. Alongside Frazier´s delight in the absurdities of contemporary life is his sense of social responsibility: There´s an echo of the great reform-minded writers in his pieces on a soup kitchen, opioid overdose deaths on Staten Island, and the rise in homelessness in New York City under Mayor Bloomberg. In each dizzying discovery, Hogs Wild unearths the joys of inquiry without agenda, curiosity without calculation. To listen to Frazier is to become a kind of social and political anthropologist - astute and deeply engaged. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ian Frazier.
