Publisher's Summary

Yeah, yeah, the usual. A crime. A corpse. A killer. Heard it. Except this stiff happens to be a Ponsonby, scion of a venerable Edinburgh medical clan, and the manner of his death speaks of unspeakable things. Why is the body displayed like a slice of beef? How come his hands are digitally challenged? And if it's not the corpse, what is that awful smell? A post-Thatcherite nightmare of frightening plausibility, Quite Ugly One Morning is a wickedly entertaining and vivacious thriller, full of acerbic wit, cracking dialogue, and villains both reputed and shell-suited.

Quite brilliant

The 'Only Fools & Horses' of detective fiction - with un-deleted expletives! A huge belly laugh from start to finish. I can't wait for the next instalment.

Dark, funny and compelling

The man who first said that he prefered radio to television because the pictures were better had obviously just listened to Quite Ugly One Morning. The imagery is brutal and vivid yet there is humour here, black humour where each laugh carries a pang of guilt. The pace of the story keeps you listening and it is as well read as you might expect. Marvellous and recommended to the strong of stomach and those not easily offended.
