Be My Enemy

by Christopher Brookmyre

Part of the Jack Parlabane Series

eBooks of the Month Thriller and Suspense

LoveReading View on Be My Enemy

A fast, action-packed, page-turning novel of corporate bonding that plummets into mayhem in a complicated plot that is set in and around an historic mansion. It’s classic Brookmyre; humorous, thrilling stuff. You really have to read this man, a star for the future. Since this is not his best (although brilliant), you’ve got some real thrills in store once you become hooked on him. You may have caught James Nesbitt in an earlier one on television, Quite Ugly One Morning.

Comparison: James Hawes, Carl Hiaasen, Christopher Fowler.

Sarah Broadhurst

Be My Enemy Synopsis

By now, readers know what to expect from the remarkable Mr Brookmyre, and Be My Enemy has all the hallmarks of his caustic wit. The protagonist of his earlier books, the wry Jack Parlabane, makes a welcome reappearance, faced with an intriguing professional problem: he is to take part in a weekend of "corporate teambuilding" in the comfortable surroundings of a secluded estate. But quite what sort of course is this? Jack's instincts as a no-holds-barred hack, skilled at uncovering unpalatable truths, warn him that something unusual is in the offing--but he's not quite prepared for the extremely dangerous sideshow that is to accompany the corporate makeovers.
