Barney 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.
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
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… From Goodreads.
This was okay but not as good as I had hoped. There are a few surprises in it which are very good and made the book. As I have lived in Scotland I liked knowing about the places mentioned in the book. I might like to read more in this series but I will wait till they become available on Kindle.
