Reviews

In Christopher Brookmyre's wild and wildly funny debut crime novel, Quite Ugly One Morning, which won Britain's First Blood Award, journalist and hedonist Jack Parlabane ("different day... same hangover") investigates the murder of a young, well-to-do citizen of Edinburgh. Crooked cops, guns-for-hire and cheating spouses complicate matters as does Jack's growing affection for the dead man's wife. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

'Thrillingly unpleasant' ESQUIRE 'A sharp, funny novel, with strong characters and some smart dialogue' TLS 'A wicked satire...excellent plotting and a goodly amount of acidic one-liners' THE SCOTSMAN 'a great title and a thrillingly unpleasant murder mytery.' ESQUIRE 'enjoy it and have a good rant, because it's only fiction, isn't it' NURSING TIMES 'Very violent, very funny. A comedy with political edge, which you take gleefully in one gulp' LITERARY REVIEW 'The dialogue is a joy throughout and the plot crackles along with confident gusto and intelligence...an assured debut by a talented writer' THE TIMES
