Publisher's Summary

Do we really live on in some conscious form after we die, and is that form capable of communicating with the world of the living?
“Aye, right…” was journalist Jack Parlabane’s stance on the matter. But this was before he found himself in the compromising position of being not only dead himself but dead with an exclusive still to file. One thing he knows for certain: death is not the end - it’s the ultimate undercover assignment.

A bit too cynical even by Brookmyre's standards

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

ANOTHER GREAT STORY

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.
