The Sacred Art of Stealing

I can't seem to go past a Fopp shop here without emerging with a raft of books. Yesterday I found myself in the Edinburgh branch and found that there was a new Christopher Brookmyre novel, The Sacred Art of Stealing, so I picked it up.

(Yes, I know it's theoretically a crime thriller, and thrillers are meant to be mindless pulp, sort of like Mills & Boon for blokes, but Brookmyre is a cut above the usual Tom Clancy macho-man rubbish, not to mention a keen satirist. Anyone who has failed rock-stars becoming international terrorists, and goes on to books about Dadaist bank robbery is IMHO worth a look.)
