Publisher's Summary

Their eyes met across a crowded room. She was just a poor servant girl, and he was the son of a rich industrialist.
Er, no, this is a Christopher Brookmyre novel, although the eyes meeting across a crowded room part is true. Where it differs from the fairy tales is that the room in question was crowded with hostages and armed bank robbers, and his eyes were the only part of him she could see behind the mask....


What the Critics Say

"A thriller, love story, social satire and a warning against taking absurdism too seriously." (Time Out)
"Chris Brookmyre is a genius." (Daily Mirror)

A brilliant story of deception and crime laced dark humour. I love Chris Brookmyres novels which always have a devilish twist at the end that keeps you guessing.
