Scoop of the Year combines a witty, clever premise with thrilling pacing, wonderful characters and an intelligent, complex plot.
The author's background in journalism is obvious and he drives the reader through a maze of twists and turns, the pace unrelenting. It's a true mix of crime and comedy that few authors get right, but when handled as brilliantly as this, is a fun, engaging and intelligent read.

Very entertaining and very funny, laughed out loud so many times I had to stop reading it in public because of the strange looks I was getting. Definitely recommend this book to fans of thrillers and comedy alike.
