Dead Famous Summary

Dead Famous by Ben Elton

One house. Ten contestants. Thirty cameras. Forty microphones. Yet again the public gorges its voyeuristic appetite as another group of unknown and unremarkable people submit themselves to the brutal exposure of the televised real-life soap opera, House Arrest. Everybody knows the rules: total strangers are forced to live together while the rest of the country watches them do it. Who will crack first? Who will have sex with whom? Who will the public love and who will they hate? All the usual questions. And then, suddenly, there are some new ones. Who is the murderer? How did he or she manage to kill under the constant gaze of the thirty television cameras? Why did they do it? And who will be next?

Dead Famous Reviews

"Big up to Ben Elton and respect, big time. Top, top book" * Mail on Sunday *
"Wry, fast and fiendishly clever" * The Times *
"A book with pace and wit, real tension, a dark background theme and a big on-screen climax" * Independent *
"The perfect modern-day whodunit. A cracking read full of hilarious insights into the Big Brother phenomenon" * Mirror *
"One of the best whodunits I have ever read...a funny, gripping, hugely entertaining thriller, but also a persuasive, dyspeptic account of the way we live now, with our insane, inane cult of the celebrity" * Sunday Telegraph *
