Yeah, yeah, the usual. A crime. A corpse. A killer. Heard it. Except this stiff happens to be a Ponsonby, scion of a venerable Edinburgh medical clan, and the manner of his death speaks of unspeakable things. Why is the body displayed like a slice of beef? How come his hands are digitally challenged? And if it's not the corpse, what is that awful smell?A post-Thatcherite nightmare of frightening plausibility, QUITE UGLY ONE MORNING is a wickedly entertaining and vivacious thriller, full of acerbic wit, cracking dialogue and villains both reputed and shell-suited.

About the Author:

Chris Brookmyre was a journalist before becoming a full time novelist with the publication of QUITE UGLY ONE MORNING. Since the publication of A BIG BOY DID IT AND RAN AWAY he and his family decided to move away from Aberdeen and now live near Glasgow. Oh, yes.

From AudioFile:

Contemporary Edinburgh and Glasgow are featured in this graphic thriller. Journalist Jack Parlabane discovers a most dramatically murdered Jeremy Ponsonby, son of a local medical clan. Author Brookmyre spices his writing with wit, irony, and Scots expressions. Narrator Kenny Blyth's melodious voice is perfect for everything the plot throws at him, including feisty women, local dialect, and villains at various points on the food chain. Although this is not for everyone, those who like grit, wit, and foul language will love Blyth reading Brookmyre. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
