I am a huge fan of Chris Brookmyre but I found this book a little too jaded and cynical even for him. I can see why he decided to move on from Jack Parlabane at this point as he was clearly getting tired of him and the character had gone from a rich and complex figure to a caricature of a jaded hack. The writing in the style of the Daily Mail columnist was also a bit too stereotypical with the perverse effect that it rather let a deserving target off the hook.
Overall it was an enjoyable listen but as a fan of Brookmyre's work I would have to rank this as one of his lesser works and certainly not a patch on his recent renaissance with the Jasmine Sharp books and Dead Girl Walking

Everything from the title is excellent. This author is just so good at storytelling. We are racing through his books so I do hope he writes more.
