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 *
Tough, in your face...studded with a lot of black humour. * IRISH TIMES *
