Winner of Britain’s First Blood Award for the best debut crime novel, Christopher Brookmyre’s Quite Ugly One Morning is the raucous comic thriller that established the author’s reputation for a scabrously humorous style and breakneck, hell-for-leather narrative pacing. When hard-partying, wisecracking investigative journalist Jack Parlabane stumbles across the corpse of the scion of a wealthy Edinburgh medical family, he’s determined to get to the bottom of things on his own. He quickly becomes enmeshed in a rousing adventure that will take him through all the strata of contemporary Scottish society—and into some dangerous (and hysterical) situations.

Laced with acerbic wit and crackling dialogue, Quite Ugly One Morning is a wildly entertaining and vivacious thriller.
