Only 2 left in stock (more on the way). Undeterred, I immediately purchased Brookmyre's first novel: 'Quite Ugly One Morning' and fell off my chair in a fit of laughter at the end of the first sentence!

Christopher Brookmyre's pacing problem also rears its head a little bit more in this book. If the previous book Country Of The Blind didn't really get going until a third of the way through, this one doesn't really grab you until halfway. That requires a lot of faith in Brookmyre.

However, Lorenzo Mele's production, based on an adaptation by Christopher Deans, does justice neither to Brookmyre fans nor to non-initiates. On the one hand, it underplays the strengths of the novel; on the other, it's an unexceptional piece of theatre.

The boiling frog is a fable describing a frog being slowly boiled alive

The boiling frog is a fable describing a frog being slowly boiled alive. The premise is that if a frog is put suddenly into boiling water, it will jump out, but if the frog is put in tepid water which is then brought to a boil slowly, it will not perceive the danger and will be cooked to death. The story is often used as a metaphor for the inability or unwillingness of people to react to or be aware of sinister threats that arise gradually rather than suddenly.

The third book in the Jack Parlabane series, from author Christopher Brookmyre. Jack Parlabane, the investigative journalist who is not averse to breaking the law for the sake of a good story, has finally been caught on the petard of his own self-confidence and is experiencing accommodation courtesy of Her Majesty. The fledgling Scottish parliament is in catatonic shock after experiencing its first dose of Westminster sleaze. The Catholic Church of Scotland is taking full advantage of the politicians' discomfort and is riding high in the polls as the voice of morality.

Parlabane gets down to it in Scottish politics - another storming sory

As always, warped, wicked and witty. Brookmyre is an artist - who else can make tears of laughter run down your face during the most gruesome scenes? Fooaltiye!

Love Me
Once upon a time, I was having a pint of IPA with a professor of law, who also happened to have served as a QC and a judge before he retired. As both of us were avid fans of the crime fiction genre, I mentioned to him that I was beginning to run out of authors I really took to: having worked my way through from Raymond Chandler to James Ellroy, Henning Mankell and all points inbetween and beyond, so, could he recommend anyone to me? He promptly suggested Christopher Brookmyre, but qualified this by saying that 'You might find his imagination a tad twisted, but after what I've had to listen to in my time, Brookmyre sounds disturbingly normal.' Undeterred, I immediately purchased Brookmyre's first novel: 'Quite Ugly One Morning' and fell off my chair in a fit of laughter at the end of the first sentence! Maybe it's something about having been a resident of Glasgow that sends the synapses sparking in all sorts of contorted and deranged directions, but, Brookmyre's imagery, ingenuity, insight and acuity are second to none. Furthermore, you must pay attention to the detail. Basically, he has three threads to his works. The first follows the ludicrous, almost infantile but utterly hilarious, adventures of Jack Parlabane. The second: the heroic struggle of a Catholic Rangers supporting copper called Angelique de Xavier, in love with a quite magical bank robber, against the evil, thoroughly evil, machinations of an almost reasonable maniac called Simon Darcourt. Then, finally, the really serious stuff in his trilogy covering the accidental private investigator Jasmine Sharp in her random quest to find out where she came from, with a bit of assistance from a Fallen Angel. Brookmyre is nothing short of brilliant, especially with his Jasmine Sharp trilogy (which really ought to be read in sequence to get the full gist. 1:'Where the Bodies are Buried', 2: When the Devil Drives', and, best of all, 3: 'Flesh Wounds' - 'wounds' as a verb not a noun). He is also the kind of individual who wears his politics up, down and all around his sleeves. Miss him at your peril.

Brookmyre has been described as Britian's answer to Carl Hiaasen, but in this book, Brookmyre's anger at a wide range of aspects of modern British society make for a darker, more gritty read.

The topical plot describes leaders of Scotland's clergy fighting to retain their relevance in the face of the post-modern trashing of anything that smacks of formal religion. In a world where only tawdry shallowness is regarded as important, the church surrenders its future to the street instincts of a professional PR hustler, who has no scruples as to how he achieves his goals.

Mayhem and murder ensue in pursuit of the church's agenda, but in true Brookmyre style, an underdog appears to gum the works, in the figure of the raffish Jack Parlabane, whose morality at times seems to be scarcely higher than the people he is battling.

Throughout the book, Brookmyre tees off on several of his pet hates about Britain in general and Scotland in particular - political spin and correctness, powerful conspiracies, sectarian hatred born of ignorance and above all, the hypocrisy of self-elected religious figures.

Brookmyre is always interesting and insightful, and comes across as a lone voice of reason (and one favouring a strong Scottish accent) in a culture which appears not to notice its own decay. - Maclean J Storer, author of Forward O Peasant
