Publisher's Summary

Private investigator Jasmine Shar has been hired to find Tessa Garrion, a young woman who has vanished without trace.

As Jasmine uncovers a hidden history of sex, drugs, ritualism, and murder, she realises she may need a little help from the dark side herself if she's going to get to the truth.

Not a classic Brookmyre, but a solid one

Would you listen to When the Devil Drives again? Why?

Probably not. It gave it all on the first run.


Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

It's intellectually challenging, you know the paths will cross, and he manipulates your expectations in a way that makes it surprising almost all the time.


Which character – as performed by Sarah Barron – was your favorite?

Many - she is a wonderful performer and I can recall most of her characters in this book.

- Alexandra "I love listening to detective novels while I walk or run in the park."

Better than ever.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. Devilishly clever plot, great characters, wonderfully read.


What did you like best about this story?

The multi-layered texture with which Brookmyre takes one under the skin of contemporary Scotland. The way it weaves different strands together to make a not-too-neat whole.


Which scene was your favorite?

Probably the one where Jasmine takes the last train home. The shooting scene at the Lodge was also in contention.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The ending. And the torching of Jasmine's car.


Any additional comments?

Brookmyre seems to have found a second breath if not an entirely new voice - thankfully. The anarchy, black humour and surprising insights are all there, and in Jasmine Sharp and the other companion characters he has created a pond in which I suspect he'll play for some time.
