Brookmyre rules.

You may miss some of his earlier over the top humour, but the more serious Chris B is an increasingly accomplished writer of really good thrillers. Well plotted, well read. Highly recommended.

New style Brookmyre with familiar faces. Good Book

Would you listen to Dead Girl Walking again? Why?

No, it's a mystery and I know the outcome. Saying that, the characters are richly portrayed in true Chris Brookmyre style and I genuinely enjoyed the journey.

Would you recommend Dead Girl Walking to your friends? Why or why not?

Yes and no. If my friend liked 'Bedlam' or 'Pandaemonium' (which I did not like at all), I'd tell them to stay away. If they liked the Jasmine Sharpe books, I think that this might be closer to their taste, it's a clever mystery with a bit of familiar Parlabane humour mixed in - which I think really suits the author's style and I'm looking forward to his next effort hugely as a result.

Any additional comments?

I've been disappointed by Brookmyre's previous 5 books and I've not been enraptured by one since 'A Snowball in Hell' if I'm honest. This was a half-way house between a Parlabane novel of old and a Jasmine Sharpe mystery (it even shares a few characters later on). I liked the balance, it felt like a more natural fit for the author and characters. A definite return to form in my humble opinion, I will start to watch for more new releases by Chris Brookmyre as a result.

Very intriguing thriller

This was my first introduction to Brookmyre and very different to my usual reading but gripped me from start to finish while causing me to laugh out loud from time to time. Brookmyre now high on my reading list
