    Simon Darcourt, an inventive killer with a sense of humour, is creating his own celebrity talent show, one that is generating more publicity than its contestants have ever had in their lives. The catch is that those lives won't be very long. The police turn to Angelique de Xavia, a cop who has crossed his path before. However, the police are not the only people who want Darcourt. Now she's faced not only with tracking him down, but also with the task of ensuring she doesn't end up dead once she's served her purpose.

    John says: "More Brookmyre, Please"
    "Gory and fun, with a heart, too."

    Story
    Would you listen to A Snowball in Hell again? Why?

    Yes, the narrator was very good. The story compelling and if you're a music lover you will enjoy the scathing assessment of the music industry.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes, there were many twists and turns and several compelling story lines to follow.


    What about Kenny Blyth’s performance did you like?

    Kenny Blyth's true Scottish accent helped bring the book to life. He was easy for this Yank to understand even while listening in the car.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed a lot! I also gasped and winced at some parts. Some parts are not for the faint of heart, but the story is great wicked fun.


    Any additional comments?

    I visited Scotland last summer and picked up a Christopher Brookmyre book at the recommendation of a book shop owner in Elgin, where my father's family came from. I asked for some crime fiction by an author an American might not be familiar with. From our conversation she deduced I would enjoy something with black humor and she was right. If you like Carl Hiaasen or Christopher Moore this will be a fun listen for you.
