Christopher Brookmyre - A big boy did it and run away - 2001

A beautiful crime-detectvie novel from Scottish author Christopher Brookmyre. There's a lot of Queen in it:
- a group of 4 terrorists with nicknames John, Roger, Brian and Freddie
- a rock band became successful with a minor hit in the 80's, a rock cover of Funny How Love Is!
- the comparison between the first time the main villain-terrorist used the gun and the first time Queen used synthesizers.

Real fun, not only for Queen quotations but for the novel itself.
