Dead Famous by Ben Elton

Dead famousA witty and at times savage take on the world of reality TV. Peeping Tom productions makes House Arrest (a parody of Big Brother) – with “One house. Ten contestants. Thirty cameras. Forty microphones. One survivor.”

All is progressing well until Day 27 when a murder occurs on screen. Everyone watching sees it happen and yet, despite all the cameras and microphones in the House, the murderer’s identity remains a mystery.

Into this heady mix comes Inspector Stanley Coleridge, a copper of the old school and possibly the only person unaware that such a programme as House Arrest exists.

He struggles to get to grips with modern ways let alone motives and with the world’s attention on him he must somehow unmask the killer before he, or she, strikes again.
