This review is from: Quite Ugly One Morning (Paperback)
Chrisopher Brookmyre is an exceptional author who brings to life a great character in the form of Jack Parlabane. If you enjoy your crime gritty and your humour black then there is no-one who can touch Brookmyre. He superbly captures the east-meets-west of Scotland rivalry. Further to this the book rips along at a cracking pace to the point that you cannot put the book down. A word of warning though, the language in the book reflects the gritty style. Strong language abounds, though for some who do not have a grasp of Scottish slang there may be some problems undestanding words such as 'keech' and 'jobby'. You can guess as to their meaning via the context of their use which should prove to be more than educational. A must read for all fans of crime and black humour novels.
