Jack Parlabane Series by Christopher Brookmyre
Jack Parlabane is the protagonist in a series of Tartan Noir crime fiction novels by Scottish author Christopher Brookmyre. Parlabane is an investigative journalist. In order to do his job, Parlabane is not above breaking a few trespassing and burglary laws. The series is currently ongoing. A crime has occured. A murder, to be exact. The victim is a Ponsonby, scion of a venerable Edinburgh medical clan.
Parlabane is introduced in style in this action-packed romp. It sounds like a dull basis for satire, but he efficiently finds the interesting angle and digs the knife right in, mercilessly mocking Tory policy. And I do love the character of Dr Sarah Slaughter. They thought he or she was there in an auxiliary, subservient capacity, to gas the patient and keep the awkward bugger quiet and still while they worked their little miracles. Country of the Blind by Christopher Brookmyre. Jack Parlabane is trying very hard to stay out of trouble, but then a good friend of his shows up on TV talking to the press about the Voss case and he is unavoidably sucked in. The supporting cast, including the four criminals, are all fascinating — often funny, sometimes touching.
