Publisher's Summary

A couple of ice cubes first, then the apple that really started it all. A loft apartment in London's East End; cool but doomed - demolition and redevelopment slated fro the following week. Ken Nott, devoutly contrarian leftish shock-jock attending a mid-week wedding lunch, starts dropping stuff off the rood towards the deserted car park 100 feet below.

Other guests join in and soon half the contents of the flat are following the fruit towards the pitted tarmac... just as mobiles start to ring, and the apartment's remaining TV is turned on, because apparently a plane has crashed into the World Trade Center....

    "Some of Iain Banks best writing"

    Expletive littered and raw, this book captures one of Iain's best anti heros. A man so very likeable but with so many flaws, it's hard to turn away from the exciting conclusion. You be left wondering if he deserves it or now. A cracking read.

    "Good book"

    I'm a big fan of Iain Banks and this was good but not up to his usual amazing standard. Well read by the narrator

    "Another great Banks"

    A great book definitely recommend to any Banks fan. Or a good book for anyone. Good mix and humour too.
