This book is also available in THE BARBERSHOP SEVEN - the collected Barney Thomson novels Barney Thomson is a barber on the run. Notorious throughout Scotland as the most prolific serial killer since the Black Death, he has escaped Glasgow and the long arm of the law by hiding out in a monastery in the frozen far north-west. However, as the snow descends, and the police slowly close in on his hideout, a new, vicious and altogether more psychotic murderer is wreaking havoc amongst the monks… Praise for THE BARBER SURGEON'S HAIRSHIRT: "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 "A flawless follow-up to an impressive debut, this is 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
