Quite Ugly One Morning

by Christopher Brookmyre

Category: Crime, Mystery & Thrillers / Thrillers
Publisher: Little, Brown Book Group
Publication date: 3 July 1997
Number of pages: 320

Description:
Yeah, yeah, the usual. A crime. A corpse. A killer. Heard it. Except this stiff happens to be a Ponsonby, scion of a venerable Edinburgh medical clan, and the manner of his death speaks of unspeakable things. Why is the body displayed like a slice of beef? How come his hands are digitally challenged? And if it's not the corpse, what is that awful smell? A post-Thatcherite nightmare of frightening plausibility, QUITE UGLY ONE MORNING is a wickedly entertaining and vivacious thriller, full of acerbic wit, cracking dialogue and villains both reputed and shell-suited.

What the papers say:
Thrillingly unpleasant ESQUIRE A sharp, funny novel, with strong characters and some smart dialogue TLS A wicked satire...excellent plotting and a goodly amount of acidic one-liners THE SCOTSMAN a great title and a thrillingly unpleasant murder mytery. ESQUIRE

Author's Biography:
Chris Brookmyre was a journalist before becoming a full time novelist with the publication of QUITE UGLY ONE MORNING. Since the publication of A BIG BOY DID IT AND RAN AWAY he and his family decided to move away from Aberdeen and now live near Glasgow. Oh, yes.
