9780099483588: The Bedroom Secrets of the Master Chefs

At Edinburgh's Department of Environmental Health, hard-drinking, womanising officer Danny Skinner wants to uncover secrets: 'the bedroom secrets of the master chefs', secrets he believes might just help him understand his self-destructive impulses. But the arrival of the virginal, model-railway enthusiast Brian Kibby at the department provokes an uncharacteristic response in Skinner, and threatens to throw his mission off course. Consumed by loathing for his nemesis, Skinner enacts a curse, and when Kibby contracts a horrific and debilitating mystery virus, Skinner understands that their destinies are supernaturally bound, and he is faced with a terrible dilemma.

Review:

" Irvine Welsh is in a class of his own...[his books have] a seething life in them that rivets attention and an inventiveness with story and language that continually amuses and amazes" ( Guardian)

"It is an exquisitely paced black comedy. It has clever and funny things to say. There was a rumour that Welsh's last novel, Porno was to be his last. You'll be glad it wasn't" ( Evening Standard)

"Flickers with the dynamism, black humour and imaginative bravado that is Welsh at his best" ( Financial Times)

"An outrageous and exhilarating foul-mouthed book" ( Sunday Times)

"Vintage Welsh: Brilliant, graphic, with frequent forays into the grotesque" ( Sunday Tribune)

From the Publisher:

The first Irvine Welsh novel in three years
