Somewhere in this book is a neat, but short, story with a tight plot line. Unfortunately, and much to this reader's disappointment, Mr. Brookmyre spends most of his time in psycho-historical research of the main characters. Fine if you are interested in their lives, but not as a way to stretch a 70 page novella into a 300+ page book. Hope his next is up to the usual standard.
