Publisher's Summary

It was a junket, a freebie. A 'team-building' weekend in the highlands for lawyers, advertising execs, businessmen, even the head of a charity. Oh, and a journalist, specially solicited for his renowned and voluble scepticism - Jack Parlabane.
Amid the flying paintballs and flowing Shiraz even the most cynical admit the organisers have pulled some surprises - stalkers in the forest, power cuts in the night, mass mobile phone thefts, disappearing staff, disappearing guests: there's nothing can bring out people's hidden strengths or break down interpersonal barriers quite like not having a clue what's going on and being scared out of your wits.
However, when the only vehicular access for thirty miles is cut off, it seems that events are being orchestrated not just for pleasure....
And that's before they find the first body. Thereafter, 'finding out who your colleagues really are' is not so much an end product as the key to reaching Monday morning alive.

Love this author's work!

This is the third book that I've gone through of this author &and I'm just about to buy another. I love the style of writing, and the humour. Don't get me wrong it's a serious book but written with humour. The main character is hilarious. He's pretty much an anti hero with a dour, dry & sarcastic wit. Simply, brilliant.

Outrageous story, but you loved it all the same

What did you like most about Be My Enemy?

Great characterisations superbly narrated by Angus King. I've never switched my view point on characters so often, from outright hatred to deep felt sympathy

What was one of the most memorable moments of Be My Enemy?

Defending the Hall from the murderous hoards, using ingenuity in doing so. Funny too.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

The 1980's political heated discussion e.g. Jack Parlabane's retort to one remark went

"the world has gone PC mad!!!!..........oh the desperate cry of the thwarted bigot" - priceless.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Nothing in particular, wasn't that type of story.

Any additional comments?

Brookmyre is literary gold. If you like his work, you'll love this.
