A breath of fresh air,
This review is from: The Sacred Art Of Stealing (Paperback)
Picking up a book by accident by an author unknown to you, more often that not, is disappointing. Brookmyre's "The sacred art of stealing" was a joy to read. Refreshingly different, viciously subversive and, in the main, great entertainment. The opening chapter was hilarious, identifying with half the population and the writing is of the highest order and its content made it a rivetting introduction to the rest of the book. The description later of the gang's entry to the precinct and subsequent act of robbery is class. I will make a point of reading more of Brookmyre.
