Curse Of The Clown

(The ninth book in the Barney Thomson series)
A novel by


A fiendish, fell figure, face painted like a demonic clown, emerges from the Scottish barbershop community, murder in mind, revenge to take, havoc to wreak. The first to fall is an old customer, then the diabolical Koiffing Klown turns his attention to the barbers.

In ones and twos they gather at the annual Scottish barbershop convention in Perthshire, unaware a maniacal monster lurks in their midst. Among them is Barney Thomson, mild-mannered hairdressing genius, cursed to walk the earth in the company of butchers, ne’er-do-wells and psychopaths.

As the killer strikes, then strikes again and again, with every swipe of the razor he comes one step closer to Barney and the men of the Millport tonsorium. Penises are severed, blood is spilled, and screams bounce from wall to wall, echoing impotently into the night…

CURSE OF THE CLOWN, the ninth book in the Barney Thomson trilogy, is the most gruesomely hilarious yet.

“Gloriously over the top, very bloody and very, very funny.” Daily Telegraph

“With classic timing and delight in the grotesque, Lindsay has crafted a macabre masterpiece where content lives up to style.” What’s On
