Meantime by Frankie Boyle

Synopsis

Glasgow, in the aftermath of the Independence referendum, is a strange place. Marina Katos's body is found in a park and the police don't seem to know or care who committed the crime.

In a haze of tranquillisers, hallucinogens and Valium, Felix McAveety decides to solve the murder of Marina, his best friend. But to break through his drug-induced fog and get closer to the truth Felix enlists the help of a dying crime novelist, Jane Pickford, and his crisis-ridden friend Donnie. Their quest takes them into the dark heart of Scottish politics, the orbit of drug dealers, and the matrix of AI, encountering Independence activists, the intelligence services and stalkers, as they seek justice for Marina.

Meantime is an exhilarating, wild ride through Glasgow's multicultural present and examines its colonial past. It's dazzlingly funny, grappling with big ideas, and is heartbreakingly tinged with personal and political loss.

Reviews

'A surprisingly moving and beautiful journey through one man's sh*tshow of a friend's death/hangover.' Lucy Prebble, screenwriter for Succession

'A darkest noir, unputdownable crime novel that swerves and surprises, with a gut-punch ending. I loved it!' Denise Mina

'Reads like a twisted Caledonian take on Robert Altman's The Long Goodbye. Inherent vices and scalpel-sharp jokes vie with a very human concern for those least garlanded in the rat race of life.' Ian Rankin

'Just finished this and f*ck me, it's total class!! I'm sure all the expletive swears are coming out for this one - and so they should. Ace' Helen Stanton, Forum Books
