Chris Brookmyre is a genius, every new book of his is a cause for celebration
There are dozens of novels based on Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None, but Christopher Brookmyre's ingenious take is by far the best I have read. He makes you feel for and fear each character. He keeps you guessing until the very end - after an avalanche of revelations and twists.
Brookmyre's familiar sardonic prose is pleasingly in place
Brookmyre is always a class act and it is a pleasure to be back in the hands of one of our best crime writers with this clever, propulsive thriller with a whole lot of heart
Tightly plotted and a lot of fun, this is perfect poolside reading
Brookmyre's psychological acuity that sets him apart from many other thriller writers . . . It's as if he has climbed like a magician inside our heads.
Among his best yet . . . a killer twist and an upbeat conclusion
