I just zipped through Corpsing by Toby Litt on a long haul flight to the States. Entertaining stuff with the narrator settling a little too easily into the aggrieved (i.e. shot and nearly killed) party as detective/force of vengeance cliche. Also it was a tad Brit-Lit, Po-Mo, nudge-nudge, wink-wink with the author ironically having the narrator note the irony of a crime taking place outside the Murder One bookshop in the Charing X Road. At least there was no review by Mr Jakobowski inside the front cover... or was there?
