The Sacred Art of Stealing

The Sacred Art of Stealing - Christopher Brookmyre I'd never read any of Brookmyre's books and I picked this up at the airport as I was going on holiday. He has a great sense of character and place. His Asian female detective is fabulous and very unconventional. And the baddy...He's also great. It's one of the few books that made me laugh out loud very early on.
I've read some of his other books and he never fails to be entertaining and create interesting and quirky characters and situations.
