Step up from 'Frog', but not the best,
By A Customer
This review is from: A Big Boy Did It And Ran Away (Paperback)
After being mildly disappointed with 'Boiling a Frog', I was slightly nervous about buying this - what if it was crap? Fortunately it's not. This is by no means Brookmyre's best, but it is good, and you should chuckle throughout. The characterisation is spot-on and it is obvious that Brookmyre knows what he's talking about re: gaming and the late eighties Glasgow scene *at least according to my boyfriend who was there. The bad guys aren't as funny as in 'One Fine Day', but the plot twists and turns and this more than makes up for it.
