Martin is a hapless journalist who becomes jealous of the meteoric rise into television by Tom, a fellow reporter. But when he lands a scoop that would allow him to finally outshine his rival, he discovers his malfunctioning family becomes a hindrance.
"For a British journalist, maintaining a career and financial stability can be murder—and may even call for it—in this thriller ... A smartly restrained and persistently witty crime tale even at its grimmest"
"Very witty thriller with a wonderful ending that I didn't see coming and wager you won't, either. The protagonist, a journalist, is somewhat compromised but you'll root for him anyway ... I thoroughly enjoyed Scoop of the Year."
