The very first Sheriff Dan Rhodes mystery, Too Late to Die, featured an encounter with feral pigs. So does the one coming out in April (cover at left). Some people wonder if there really are feral pigs running loose in Texas. Sure there are, and I wish I'd known about this classified ad before I wrote A Mammoth Murder so I could have included it. Thanks to Banjo Jones for finding the ad, even if it's a little late for me.
