Pulp Fiction meets And Then There Were None” during a high school reunion off the coast of Scotland (Booklist).
Gavin Hutchinson has it all planned out. A unique “floating holiday experience” on a converted North Sea oil rig, a haven for tourists who want a vacation but without the hassle of actually going anywhere. What better way to test out his venture than to host a fifteen-year high school reunion, the biggest social event of his life? How embarrassing then for Gavin. Not only does no one remember him, but his wife has discovered his philandering ways and plans to ditch him with a very public announcement in front of his assembled guests. That includes the uninvited ones, like a band of party-crashing mercenaries who are about to bring out the very worst in very old friends.
Let the fun begin “as champagne bottles morph into defensive weapons” in prize-winning author Christopher Brookmyre’s comedy of betrayal, double-cross, blackmail, revenge, and survival (The Hartford Courant).
“Furiously paced and wonderfully absurd, with more one-liners than a Colombian coke dealer.” —Maxim
“Broad humor . . . and breakneck plotting.” —The New York Times Book Review
