Places in the Darkness
By Chris Brookmyre
Million-copy-selling Christopher Brookmyre takes his thrilling crime fiction further than ever before - into the far reaches of space. When a corpse is found during the construction of humanity's first colony ship, mismatched investigators Freeman and Blake must find the culprit before they themselves become the next victims.
Chris Brookmyre was a journalist before becoming a full-time novelist with the publication of his award-winning debut Quite Ugly One Morning, which established him as one of Britain's leading crime authors. His Jack Parlabane novels have sold more than one million copies in the UK alone.
