I really enjoyed this book - I just didn't want to set it down. The story is basically a spoof of Big Brother - only in this house a murder takes place. The book follows the police investigation following it while jumping in time to follow the housemates before and after one of them get's knifed in the head! It's a complete piss take of reality TV and very very very funny and clever - not least because we are not only guessing who the murderer is, but also the victim! We know a house mate has been killed but we don't find out until more than half way through the book who it is. The characters are brilliant, it's biting and sarcastic and just really enjoyable.

It was a welcome change from the more serious novels I have been reading lately! Will have to get my hands on more of Ben Eltons books in the near future.
