***This book is also available in THE BARBERSHOP SEVEN - the collected Barney Thomson novels*** As Barney Thomson is closing up his barbershop for the night, an old man enters looking for a Cary Grant cut and a bit of a chat. The following day, Barney discovers that last night's customer appears to have been the captain of a fishing trawler found mysteriously abandoned on the Clyde over a hundred years ago. In a sinister echo of the past, a trawler is discovered drifting in a flat calm just off the island of Cumbrae, where Barney lives and works. Of the three trawlermen known to have been on board the Bitter Wind, one is found dead on the vessel. The other two are missing. As the ghosts mount up for Barney, could it just be that he is in an episode of Scooby Doo, featuring a lot of villains in masks? Or is it a real, dark and menacing evil which haunts his sleepy seaside town? THE HAUNTING OF BARNEY THOMSON is book 6 in the Barney Thomson series. Praise for THE LONG MIDNIGHT OF BARNEY THOMSON (book 1) "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 Praise for THE BARBER SURGEON'S HAIRSHIRT (book 2): "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
