The Legend of Barney Thomson

By (author) Douglas Lindsay

Barney Thomson – an 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…

Reviews of The Legend of Barney Thomson

'The plot, Russian literature fans, is a modern spin on Dostoyevsky's Crime and Punishment. The bloody ending, movie buffs, is pure Reservoir Dogs.' 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.' Scotsman
