CR - When the Devil Drives, Christopher Brookmyre

Author Name: 

It's a Christopher Brookmyre book. Of course I was going to read it.

From the Blurb:

Is the devil merely the name we give the worst in ourselves?

When private investigator Jasmine Sharp is hired to find Tessa Garrion, a young woman who has vanished without trace, it becomes increasingly clear that there are those who want her to stay that way. What begins as a simple search awakens a malevolence that has lain dormant for three decades, putting Jasmine in the crosshairs of those who would stop at nothing to keep their secrets buried.

CR - Not the End of the World, Christopher Brookmyre

Author Name: 

Being December, I've decided that this is read what you damn well please month. Which will obviously include a heap of review books as there are some rippers lined up, but it's also going to include some happy place stuff. And yes, know it's strange, but Brookmyre at full rant is a very very happy place.

From the Blurb:

Bullets. Bombs. Depravity. Bad hair.

Memorable Books from 2011

Whilst I can normally manage to cobble together one of those dreaded "Top 10" listings for some of the mailing lists or, just before Christmas, on the Sisters in Crime website, I hate doing them.  It's such an arbitrary number, and doesn't even allow me the luxury of a favourite book per month.  So instead, a few reminders to myself on what really stayed with me from last year's reading list of 135 books.

Currently Reading - Where the Bodies are Buried, Chris Brookmyre

Name change from Christopher to Chris, but this is the Brookmyre - writing straight crime it seems.  From the first few chapters I read last night there's just the slightly feeling of that dry, sarcastic humour so well loved by fans of his books.

From the Blurb:

Detective Catherine McLeod was always taught that in Glasgow, they don't do whodunit.  They do score-settling.  They do vendettas.  They do petty revenge.

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

After a fantastic book like TRUTH, I find it's often best to turn to another favourite author - but one whose style is completely different.  Christopher Brookmyre is always a handy choice as, well his style is COMPLETELY different from anybody else!

From the Blurb:

A gothic nightmare for the twenty-first century...
