Do you believe in ghosts? Do we really live on in some conscious form after we die? And is that form capable of communicating with the world of the living? Jack Parlabane's stance on the matter: Aye, right. This was before he found himself in the more compromising position of being not only dead himself, but worse: dead and with an exclusive still to file. Now he knows for certain that death is not the end: it's the ultimate undercover assignment. Download and start listening now!

    " I can't actually review this book because I didn't finish it, it was complete nonsense. And badly written nonsense at that. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenny | 2/16/2014

    " Not his best (too many high-horses), but a fun holiday read nonetheless. Has inspired me to revisit his back catalogue. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Spencer | 2/16/2014

    " It's all too easy to milk the occult in popular fiction but oh so hard to write a compelling story debunking it. Attack of the Unsinkable Rubber Ducks does this and does it superbly, with colorful but believable characters and plot twists galore. Brookmyre's sardonic tone and narrative style of switching between first-person narrators is refreshing. This is the second Brookmyre book I've read and certainly won't be the last. A highly-entertaining and even thought-provoking read that I recommend highly. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Duncan Mclaren | 2/12/2014

    " Another cracker from Brookmyre "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Meera | 1/23/2014

    " Fantastic mystery about whether spiritualism and encounters with the dead can be considered as a science. As well having Brookmyre's trademark biting wit, this raised some really interesting points about the inclusion of pseudo-science and intelligent design into education. And I loved the satire on Glasgow uni (aka Kelvin University in the book) - brought back lots of fond memories of scuzzy nights in the union, living in a tenement and wandering around Dumbarton Rd. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melissa Mason | 1/21/2014

    " Maybe not my favourite Brookmyre but pretty close Anything that blows psychics and there garbage out of the water is worth recommending! Shame about Parlabane though :( "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aaminah | 1/20/2014

    " Fun, funny and a quick read but sometimes too overtly preachy "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica | 1/20/2014

    " not as funny as some of his other works, but has a good story and engaging characters as usual. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julia Phillips | 1/19/2014

    " I'm giving all CB's books five stars - brilliant stuff. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alan Duffy | 1/8/2014

    " Have to agree with Karen's review. I didn't feel the book got going until halfway through, even then it stuttered along. Got another two Brookmyre books to read and am hoping they are better than this one. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Phillipa Dickinson | 1/4/2014

    " A good read, a humorous crime novel. I'm not normally into crime books, but this one was quite good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marci | 12/4/2013

    " Fun read. I'm really liking this author. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ipswichblade | 10/29/2013

    " Another Brookmyre classic. It started slowly but reaches an incredible finish with a massive twist. Can't say anymore or it will spoil the story! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Roger | 7/12/2013

    " Brookmyre returns to sparkling form with the new Parablane novel. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tom | 1/30/2012

    " Jack Parlabane's back! and he's in the world of the psychics (the "woo") and the Jehovah's Witnesses (the "flatnoses"). Another cracker. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 anne | 10/6/2011

    " Meh. My problem with Brookmyre right now, i think, is that he might be starting to fancy himself the tiniest little bit. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hel Cruse | 7/18/2011

    " Most excellent read. eye opening revelation! "

    " My love affair with Christopher Brookmyre books continues. Kept me on my toes as usual - he never gets boring. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 James Kellar | 2/19/2011

    " very good. Less funny than some, more vitriol, definitely more suspense. Not as good as "Country of the Blind". "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elaine Morton | 12/23/2010

    " First chapter didn't grab me, but the narrator's change and the story has so many sudden twists and surprises I found it an interesting read and left me with a lot to think about. "

    " I bought this book when I was over in England - I'd read one Jack Parlabane book and enjoyed it, and enjoyed this one even more. LOTS of fantastic "sceptic" topics are covered and the mystery is a good one as well. Very fun book! "
