He may get frequently compared to notorious Floridian crime supremo Carl Hiaasen but Glaswegian Christopher Brookmyre is very much his own man. In 1996 Brookmyre created the no-nonsense investigative journalist Jack Parlabane for his debut novel Quite Ugly One Morning, a savage black comedy about NHS cuts. Parlabane has gone on to feature in eight high-octane, deliciously brash thrillers, all with a distinct satirical bent. Brookmyre has also written a number of standalone crime capers and most recently produced the period thriller The Way of All Flesh with his wife Dr. Marisa Haetzman, under the pseudonym Ambrose Parry.
Perfect for fans of Lucy Foley and Ruth Ware, Brookmyre's addictive closed-circle mystery places a party of hen-do revellers on a remote island at the mercy of a shadowy kidnapper.
