Publisher's Summary

Civil servant Kendra has spent her whole life struggling against the Etonian powers-that-be. So when she realises her boss is up to no good, she turns whistle-blower, calling a journalist who is looking for a way to fight back himself.

Jack Parlabane is a hack who will go to desperate lengths for a good story. Reduced to peddling PR puff pieces, he is delighted when Kendra's information threatens to blow up a national corruption case. But Parlabane soon realises this story might prove dangerous to both of them.

    "Have you got two hours of to waste...."
    If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

    If you have a very short attention span as well as a liking for weak stories, then this is the book for you! I have read about 8 of Chris Brookmyre and really enjoyed them. I read Black Widow and enjoyed all aspects, the story, narrative and strange but true very little, if any swearing. This book isn't long enough for Jack Parlabane to work up to swearing! The story line is so poor, no wonder he only wrote over an hour and a half of it before giving up. I will be returning it.


    What could Chris Brookmyre have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I honestly don't think there is anything that could be done to salvage this book


    Have you listened to any of Angus King and Kate Brracken ’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    I really enjoy Angus King narration of C.B books and although I have only read two books with Kate Brracken I think they really complimented each other


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Last Day of Christmas?

    Impossible to cut a scene, the book wouldn't exist at all if you did!


    Any additional comments?

    Don't waste a credit on it, if you really want it, wait until it goes on sale for a couple of pounds
