As the book opens we find Jack has just been sentenced to six months in jail Read full review. A very clever plot together with Brookmyre's trademark colourful use of language makes this book a great read. I did find some of the political background stuff quite hard going at times however it was well worth persevering to get to the core of the story.

Boiling a Frog. Christopher Brookmyre. Warner , - Detective and mystery stories - pages. Behind the scenes the truth is obscured by the machinations of the spin doctors and in prison, aware he's missing out on a great story, Parlabane discovers that contacts and a pretty way with words are no defence against people he has helped to put away.
Part political satire, part cliff-hanging thriller this is high calibre entertainment. Chris Brookmyre was a journalist before becoming a full time novelist with the publication of 'Quite Ugly One Morning'. Oh, yes.
