Product description

Amazon Review

Christopher Brookmyre's One Fine Day in the Middle of the Night is a lethal farce in which nothing goes quite according to plan. The mercenaries and terrorists who seize an oil rig converted into an international resort are almost too busy wanting to kill each other to get on with the job, for one thing, and, for another, the group they take hostage are a high-school reunion rather than the conference of the internationally famous they are expecting. One of the high-school year went on to be a famous gangland hardman before reforming, and another is a darkly brilliant comic whose career is on the skids--and a couple more have spent far too much time in the cinema not to know what Bruce Willis would do... This is a splendidly constructed darkly funny novel in which the oddest things prove suddenly lethal and in which the imagined geography of a closed environment is at once a trap, and a playground for heroism, double cross and the sudden discovery of true love. The running gags and knowingness about movies ought to be less amusing than they are, but Brookmyre's underlying affection for ordinary people and contempt for bullies stops them being self-indulgent.

Review

Dark, violent and very funny (Daily Telegraph)

A high octane sense of the absurd (The Times)

Tremendous fun (Guardian)

The next star of the genre seems set to be Christopher Brookmyre (Mark Lawson)

A high octane sense of the absurd (THE TIMES)

Tremendous fun (THE GUARDIAN)

Dark, violent and very funny. (DAILY TELEGRAPH)
