Quite Ugly One Morning by Christopher Brookmyre


Christopher Brookmyre stands alone on my shelf, and I’m sure on all other shelves in the world; I don’t know any books quite like his. He is uniquely unsettling, warped, funny and mind bogglingly clever in his writing of crime fiction (a genre that I would normally never pick up).


Quite Ugly One Morning is the first book containing Scottish detective Jack Parlabane. It is a fulfilling murder mystery, with scenes so twisted it will have you grimacing through your fingers, trying to work out the case. This book is a departure from the books I would normally read however it was thoroughly captivating and joyfully horrible! I wholeheartedly recommend Christopher Brookmyre to anyone that likes to figure out the story and that has a very dark sense of humour (and strong constitution!).
