The Long Midnight of Barney Thomson
by Douglas Lindsay

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. 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...

Club Opinion
Our latest book The Long Midnight of Barney Thomson was a discussion book of the night. A black comedy set in the heart of Glasgow, Douglas Lindsay leads the reader through a comical yet gruesome murder fest, full of twists and turns and laugh out loud comedy.

The group agreed whilst the book was a quick and easy read, it wasn't quite as gripping as hoped and would make a good holiday read, left on the hotel shelf for others to enjoy.
