Pressestimmen

'A sharp, memorable and occasionally surprisingly touching book.' Euan Ferguson, Observer 'Funny, electric and captivating.' Marcel Berlins, THE TIMES 'Memorably funny lines.' DAILY TELEGRAPH 'The usual rip-roaring narrative but with a vividly adult, sensitive edge.' GLASGOW HERALD 'Exotic locations, fast-moving storyline, snappy dialogue, a raunchy grandmother, espionage, violence, humour and a mad scientist- Brookmyre certainly knows how to pack a crime novel... definitely in a league of his own.' DAILY MIRROR 'As ever, Brookmyre can do madcap escapism which cocks a snook at the cliches of your average thriller while never letting up on the adrenaline, completely sucking you into the world of his devious imagination.' DAILY EXPRESS 'Very funny.' HEAT 'All Fun and Games Until Somebody Loses An Eye belongs to the half of Brookmyre's work less concerned with the state of the Scottish nation and more with what happens when iconically ordinary Scots are dumped into the middle of Hollywood plots. Here, we have, on the one hand, an international trouble-shooting organization most of whose agents are on the run from some sort of trouble themselves, and, on the other, a forty-something grandmother aware that life has passed her by and was not meant to. When someone tries to kidnap her grand-daughter, she responds with inventive viciousness; told to save her family by making a South of France rendezvous, she steals passports, cars and tickets as if she has always been doing it. Recruited merely as an expert on a missing boffin who happens to be her son, Jane demonstrates that the quiet desperation of ordinary life is the best training a super agent could have...This is Brookmyre at his most slyly subversive and viscerally exciting, a daydream which never quite becomes preposterous.' Roz Kaveney, AMAZON.CO.UK REVIEW
