Overview


Detective Sergeant Thomas Hutton is back in a stark and brutal portrayal of a police officer on the edge and a killer in control. The Plague Of Crows plants his victims in a forest clearing, bound to chairs embedded in the ground. The lucky ones die quickly, the tops of their skulls missing, birds feeding on the flesh inside. DS Hutton lives on the side of a Scottish mountain, only coming down for weekly psychiatric sessions in town. But this new serial killer forces Hutton to end his sick leave and return to duty in Glasgow. As the months pass and the police remain clueless in the face of the horrors perpetrated by the most inhuman serial killer of his time, Hutton finds himself haunted by his past and plummeting further and further into a desperate world of sex, alcohol and guilt. And while he has no idea where to look for the Plague of Crows, the killer knows exactly where to find him… Also by Douglas Lindsay THE BARBERSHOP SEVEN: THE BARNEY THOMSON OMNIBUS

Praise for the Barney Thomson novels

"This chilling black comedy unfolds at dizzying speed... an impressive debut novel." – Sunday Mirror

"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

"A mad, macabre romp with surreal characters and cutting black humour." – The Sunday Mirror

"Gloriously over the top, very bloody and very, very funny." – Daily Telegraph

"A novel which is both genuinely silly and a fun read." – The Scotsman

"Extremely well-written, highly amusing and completely unpredictable in its outrageous plot twists and turns." – The List

"Lindsay’s burlesque thrills offer no sex, no drugs, no desperation to be cool. Just straightforward adult story; fantastic plot, classic timing and gleeful delight in the grotesque. With more talent than Irvine Welsh could dream of, Lindsay has crafted a macabre masterpiece where content lives up to style." – What’s On

    I absolutely loved the first book, and couldn't wait to read this one. It kept me spellbound from the minute I started on page one. Hopefully Mr. Lindsay will continue with the series, and I plan to buy every single one.
