The crew of an oceanic research vessel goes missing in the Pacific along with their mini-submarine. An evangelical media star holds a rally next door to a convention in LA devoted to 'nubile' cinematic entertainment. The cops know there's going to be trouble and they are not disappointed.
What they didn't foresee was the presence in their state of a Glaswegian photographer with an indecipherable accent and a strong dislike of hypocrisy, or of a terrorist who seems to have access to plutonium as well as Semtex.
In his unique style, Christopher Brookmyre throws a harsh light on the selfish preoccupations of 1990's society and at the same time provides uproarious entertainment.
"I’m impressed with the depth of character development present here, especially in the antagonist(s). Most crime fiction I’ve read had fairly cookie cutter characters, or comically one dimensional bad guys. But Brookmyre took some of the people I despise the most, and made me empathize with them to some extent. That’s good writing." -
"Set in LA, the book deals with the American B-Movie industry, Christian Fundamentalist, geology and a lanky Motherwell fan. Typical randomness by Brookmyre." - Goodreads Reviews.
