A staple of Scottish crime fiction, Brookmyre is a must for readers with a thirst for dark humour and compelling narratives – now he’s back with brand new Jack Parlabane thriller, Want You Gone!

Val McDermid calls Brookmyre “Fast, funny and furious” and Mark Billingham says he’s unique;  The Times aptly labelled him “Criminally funny”. Twenty ingenious novels, including the award winning Black Widow and Quite Ugly One Morning have earned Brookmyre a stellar reputation as one of Britain’s best crime writers.

Want You Gone asks the reader to consider the unfathomable: What if all your secrets were put online?

Wry and political, Brookmyre’s crime fiction is unique in its fantastic blend of humour and suspense, for which he’s been awarded the Sherlock Award for Best Comic Detective as well as the prestigious Wodehouse Prize for Comic Fiction. Many a Scottish crime writer is celebrated not just for their intricate plots and gritty characters, but for their sensational craic. With none is this truer than the phenomenally funny, charismatic and disarmingly humble Brookmyre.

So take note and mark the 26th of April on your calendars – this is going to be a night to remember!
