So at around 2am this morning I got to the end of Barney Thomson number 3 and do you know what that stinky wee devil Lindsay made me do? Yep, there I was desperately scrolling through my kindle to get to Barney Thomson number 4. You know, I've got a lot of other books that I've promised some very nice and well-deserving writers that I'll read and review, there's one about a goat and a couple of cowboys standing at the end of my bed sighing and tapping their toes at me. But no, there I was ...more

Barney Thomson just attracts serial killers. After surviving mass murder at a monastery in THE BARBER SURGEONS HAIRSHIRT, the barber with bad luck stumbles upon a group of murderous maniacs trying to rein in their addiction by joining murderers anonymous.

I'm working my way through the Barney Thomson series in order and, as the body count increases, this is even better than the first two.
Barney finds himself in a murderers self-help group. They spend the weekend in a large, remote country mansion. What could possibly go wrong there? Didn't anyone think to fill out a risk assessment form? How many will die this time?
This is great, laugh out loud, entertainment.

Had to list the omnibus of seven separately due to the 2015 challenge. Review for the Omnibus:

Admittedly, it's perseverance that got me through all seven books. The first three, though interesting, were not very captivating. The last four were more flowing and well paced. Overall a good alternative read.

Trouble just follows Barney Thompson. How much more can any one man take. This is the third instalment in the ongoing Barney story and is every bit as good as the previous two.

This series is wickedly funny and the little touches like the newspaper headlines make me laugh out loud.
