Summary
"Great fun and daft as monkeys" — Stuart MacBride, #1 bestselling author of THE MISSING AND THE DEADBarney Thomson — awkward, diffident, Glasgow barber — lives a life of desperate mediocrity. Shunned at work and at home, unable to break out of a twenty-year rut, each dull day blends seamlessly into the next. However, there is no life so tedious that it cannot be spiced up by inadvertent murder, a deranged psychopath, and a freezer full of neatly packaged meat. Barney Thomson's uninteresting life is about to go from 0 to 60 in five seconds, as he enters the grotesque and comically absurd world of the serial killer...Praise for Douglas Lindsay"The plot, Russian literature fans, is a modern spin on Dostoyevsky's Crime and Punishment. The bloody ending, movie buffs, is pure Reservoir Dogs." - The Mirror"This is pitch-black comedy spun from the finest writing. Fantastic plot, unforgettable scenes and plenty of twisted belly laughs." - New Woman"This chilling black comedy unfolds at dizzying speed...an impressive debut novel." - Sunday Mirror"Gleefully macabre, hugely enjoyable black burlesque." - The ScotsmanThe Barney Thomson novels in order#1 THE LEGEND OF BARNEY THOMSON (first published as THE LONG MIDNIGHT OF BARNEY THOMSON)#2 THE BARBER SURGEON'S HAIRSHIRT#3 MURDERERS ANONYMOUS#4 THE RESURRECTION OF BARNEY THOMSON#5 THE LAST FISH SUPPER#6 THE HAUNTING OF BARNEY THOMSON#7 THE FINAL CUTThese seven novels can be bought together as a set.
