Christopher Brookmyre - A Snowball in Hell (2nd Hand Hardback)
Angelique De Xavier #3
If society has the B-list celebrities it deserves, it now has a killer to match.
Except that Simon Darcourt is a great deal more successful than the average talent show contestant.
He's bypassing the media completely and posting real-time coverage of his killings on the internet. He's got viewing figures to make TV executives gasp in envy, and he's pulling the voyeuristic strings of every viewer.
Angelique DeXavier, his previous nemesis, is drafted onto the police team trying to bring this one-man celebrity hate-fest to an end. But she can't do it alone, and meanwhile a whole load of celebs are, literally, dying to be famous.

"A viciously dark satire, a breathlessly exhilarating thriller and a most unlikely romantic comedy: this is Christopher Brookmyre at the very top of his game."
"A Snow Ball in Hell is a fun, twisty, profane, hyper-attitudinal story that will keep you well-entertained while not hiding the fact that the author's messing with you throughout. If you've ever thrown things at your TV during X Factor, you'll love the premise."
