“Terrific… A great satire on modern celebrity culture and a corking book” – Francis Wheen

The contestants in TV’s Fame Factory are being eliminated one by one. But it’s not by viewer vote…

A man in a miniskirt hanging from a tree. A girl with the voice of an angel and a needle in her arm. And one half of the tabloids’ favourite couple lying dead in one of London’s poshest hotels. What links them together? Inspector Mike Braithwaite might be able to work it out, if only his 11-year-old daughter would stop going on about the nation’s favourite TV talent show...

This hilarious tale of Z-list celebrities, reality show wannabes, PC policemen and TV producers who’d sell their own grandmothers live on air for a cut of the cash from the phone-lines is the first novel by Private Eye journalist Adam Macqueen.

If you’ve ever found yourself shouting abuse at Kate Thornton and Simon Cowell even though you know they can’t hear you from the other side of the screen, then this hilarious book may make you feel a little bit better…
