The Last Day of Christmas: The Fall of Jack Parlabane by Christopher Brookmyre - Good

Another Christmas themed short story, although thinking about it, I don't remember it being particularly Christmassy.

This is basically a lead in to the new Parlabane novel that is due out in January. I suspect that, as it is a while since the last one, Mr Brookmyre wanted to remind us of Jack and whet our appetite. It worked well, but I didn't need any help in being excited about the new book.

Post Leveson Enquiry, Jack has found his exploits and his career severely curtailed. He's working for some London Tabloid taking wire stories and editing them into the 'house style'. Deeply dissatisfying! Then, by chance, a story drops into his lap: an MOD bigwig having an affair and thereby leaving himself vulnerable. Can he resist investigating, can he avoid getting himself in trouble? Of course not.

Nice little taster, can't wait to read the new novel.
