Summary

Jack Parlabane is an investigative journalist who is not averse to breaking the law for a good story.
Scottish parliament is in catatonic shock after experiencing its first dose of Westminster sleaze, and the Catholic Church of Scotland is taking advantage of the politicians' discomfort. Behind the scenes the truth is obscured.
Aware he's missing out on a great story; Parlabane discovers that contacts and a way with words is no defence against people he has helped to put away.

Critic reviews

"Surreal, satirical, irreverent, violent and immensely funny." ( The Times )
"New Labour, the Scottish Parliament, the Catholic Church, the tabloid press, spin doctors - all of them are given a thorough knifing by Brookmyre's razor-sharp pen." ( Maxim)
