Books-Dead Famous by Ben Elton

Published in 2001, Dead Famous is a comedy whodunit written by comedy veteran and accomplished author, Ben Elton.

Set in a Big Brother styled reality TV show it tells the tale of how ratings rocket when one of the housemates is murdered. The catch? There are no witnesses to the murder, a murder that took place in house full of cameras and watched live by millions of viewers.

Whether you’re a fan of reality television or not, Dead Famous is a fantastic read. A hilarious and sometimes disturbing look at our obsession with Reality TV and the lengths people will go to in order to garner those five minutes of fame. Highly recommended
