A BRAW STOY
Another excellent Jasmine Sharp story
It was another great episode of the Jasmine Sharp world. In typical style Brookmyre weaves a believable Glasgow story with the usual characters. The truth is finally revealed about Jasmine's father as she tries to prove the innocence of her sometime protector and mentor Fallon.
Probably the dispatch of the arch villain by Jasmine Sharp, horrifyingly icky.
As usual her performance was excellent, she gives life to the characters and the Glasgow turn of phrase is brought to life by her silky Scottish voice.
Revenge of the bams!
Brookmyre's work is excellent, I have followed him for many years through many characters. Jasmine Sharp has grown as a character through the three books to a likeable, intelligent and Machiavellian character in true Brookmyre style. In fact the cast of regular characters have all grown into three dimensional people that you can't but fail to care for. If you are looking for a good taste of Glasgae wrapped up in a rip roaring story, this book is for you.
