Christopher Brookmyer is back (as is his chief villian - Aberdonian terrorist Simon Darcourt), and this time, Reality TV and the whole celebrity culture is itself put under the spotlight. Nice. Damn good fun, and the sequel(s) to 'A big boy did it and ran away' and 'the sacred art of stealing'.
Call me biased, but this really did press a lot of buttons for me. Celebs being executed in an appropriate way, reality TV lampooned, and a fair bit of old fashioned magic. Go buy it now.
Of course, I got my copy signed by the man himself last week at the book festival. So you can prize that one out of my cold, dead fingers..
