The second book in the Jack Parlabane series, from author Christopher Brookmyre.

The murder of a media moghul in his country mansion appears to be the result of him disturbing a gang of would-be thieves. The robbers are swiftly caught, but when they are unexpectedly moved to a different prison they escape. Back in Edinburgh, a young solicitor reveals to the press that one of the subjects had left a letter with her some time before the break-in which proves his innocence. Jack Parlabane, journo-extraordinaire, is intrigued, but when he approaches the lawyer he discovers someone else is trying to get near her - someone with evil intent, political connections of the highest order and a corrupt agenda.

Fast-moving, blackly humorous and intriguingly credible.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Violent, funny, Scottish ... a publisher's dream - Daily Telegraph

Irvine Welsh out of Ian Rankin - Scotland on Sunday

Tough, in your face ... studded with a lot of black humour - Irish Times

Brookmyre's deft character sketches, street-level dialect and mercilessly satirical observations of cross-border politics, journalism and human zaniness keep this good-sized novel moving smoothly along. The UK press has called Brookmyre a Scottish analogue to Carl Hiaasen and Elmore Leonard; Country of the Blind actually proves it - Publishers Weekly

Violent, funny, Scottish...a publisher's dream. - DAILY TELEGRAPH

Irvine Welsh out of Iain Rankin. - SCOTLAND ON SUNDAY
