5.0 out of 5 stars One fine book..., 4 Nov. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: One Fine Day In The Middle Of The Night (Paperback)
This was the first book I ever read by Brookmyre and it's the most memorable. Focusing on a school reunion on an glorified oil rig, sorry, floating holiday resort, it puts you in touch with the characters immediately. You can empathise with the villains too, thanks to Brookmyre giving you background to the characters.
There are some genuine comedy moments and you will probably have a chuckle at least a few times throughout the book.
It is quite violent at times and the language is quite strong, but it's not gratuitous. The book also has some nice twists as well, and it makes the use of the fact that you get so engrossed in each scene you forget about certain characters which actually works to the advantage.
Possibly Brookmyres best.
