The fifth book in the Jack Parlabane series, from author Christopher Brookmyre. Do you believe in ghosts? Do we really live on in some conscious form after we die, and is that form capable of communicating with the world of the living?...Aye, right. That was Jack Parlabane's stance on the matter, anyway. But this was before he found himself in the more compromising position of being not only dead himself, but worse: dead with an exclusive still to file. From his position on high, Parlabane relates the events leading up to his demise, largely concerning the efforts of charismatic psychic Gabriel Lafayette to reconcile the scientific with the spiritual by submitting to controlled laboratory tests. Parlabane is brought in as an observer, due to his capacities as both a sceptic and an expert on deception, but he soon finds his certainties crumbling and his assumptions turned upside down as he encounters phenomena for which he can deduce no rational explanation. Perhaps, in a world in which he can find himself elected rector of an esteemed Scottish university, anything truly is possible. One thing he knows for certain, however: Death is not the end - it's the ultimate undercover assignment.

Who cares if a lowlife is murdered? Two Glasgow investigators, in a thriller that’ll “wake up crime fiction readers everywhere” (Val McDermid). When a small-time heroin dealer turns up dead one fine morning in Scotland, no one is that surprised. Sleeping with a big-time drug trafficker’s girlfriend can bring around plenty of enemies. Little wonder that Detective Superintendent Catherine McLeod has no shortage of early leads. If only out-of-work actress Jasmine Sharp could get a lead. With a career in nosedive, she’s helping her uncle Jim with his PI work and having more than a little trouble learning the ropes. When her uncle goes missing, Sharp is thrown into the deep end. To find him she’ll have to solve his most recent case—and do it solo. No sooner does Sharp follow her first clue than she finds herself in the crosshairs of an unknown assailant—and headed down the same road as McLeod. When their investigations become intertwined, “Glasgow’s mean streets come alive . . . [in] one of the best novels of the year” (John Lutz, New York Times–bestselling and Edgar award–winning author). “Smartly written . . . Brookmyre deftly twists one case around the other.” —Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review “[For] fans of Lynda La Plante’s Prime Suspect series and HBO’s The Wire.” —Library Journal “Tough Scottish humor . . . leavened with Elmore Leonard-like flourishes . . . finely controlled yet exuberant mayhem.” —The Christian Science Monitor
