Jack Parlabane Synopsis: Quite Ugly One Morning by Christopher Brookmyre is the first novel to feature Jack Parlabane. A crime has occured. A murder, to be exact. The victim is a Ponsonby, scion of a venerable Edinburgh medical clan. And the murder is no everyday murder. The body is displayed like a slice of beef. His hands are missing fingers. And the corpse smells odd, even ofr a corpse.
