When budding private investigator Jasmine Sharp is hired to find Tessa Garrion, a promising young actress who vanished without a trace more than 30 years ago, she expects to find a cut and dried case.
What she gets instead is a foray into the murky world of the arts, and a dark secret surrounding the night Tessa disappeared during the rehearsals of the Scottish Play. When the Devil Drives is the much-awaited sequel to Chris Brookmyre’s 2011 novel Where The Bodies Are Buried. Witty and with a healthy dose of his trademark black humour, Brookmyre’s new novel delivers a well-crafted, well-paced story, that, even when you think you have it all figured out, will surprise you to the last page. Another great read from the master storyteller.
