Everyone's favourite unorthodox journalist, Jack Parlabane, goes undercover to investigate the mysterious and lucrative world of alternative medicine: in particular the practice of homeopathy. Are there unexplained forces that can be harnessed to heal us, or is it all a load of sugar? Meanwhile a sinister tale of restorative justice and the occult takes an even darker turn; two body-snatchers find more than they bargained for when raiding a morgue; and a contract killer finds that fatherhood has sent him on the straight and narrow . . . sort of.
Fast paced and wickedly entertaining, Jaggy Splinters is a dark, twisted and hilarious collection of short stories from bestselling author Chris Brookmyre.

Brookmyre does it again. These short story's are captivating just like his full length novels. Off to download his latest book now.
I don't often read short stories because they usually end too quickly for me, but being a Brookmyre fan I downloaded Jaggy Splinters. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it as a 'good read'. I think one of the characters would make a great anti-hero in a full length novel.
