Product Description

Product Description

***See also THE BARBERSHOP SEVEN - the collected Barney Thomson novels***



One government.

One empire.

One murderer.

One barber.

One zombie infestation about to consume Planet Earth.



The coalition government is in crisis, limping from one disaster to the next. The Prime Minister has a plan. Get the world's finest barber in to give him a new haircut. His defence minister, however, has an entirely different and more compelling plan. Using the all-new zombie-control gene developed by British scientists, the government will harvest an army of the living dead and use it to take over the world.



As a series of gruesome murders takes place in London, and the restless ranks of the Conservative party start to close in on a beleaguered Prime Minister, the zombie contagion is unleashed upon planet earth, the British Empire begins to expand, and Queen Victoria can at last stop turning in her grave. What could possibly go wrong?



Featuring barbershop legend Barney Thomson, murder, political intrigue, scenes of gratuitous flesh-eating, Humphrey Bogart, Satan, and the return of femme fatale Harlequin Sweetlips, BARNEY THOMSON, ZOMBIE KILLER is this year's must-read zombie political satire crime thriller comedy thing.



BARNEY THOMSON, ZOMBIE KILLER is a 29,000-word novella.



Praise for THE LONG MIDNIGHT OF BARNEY THOMSON (book 1)

More About the Author

DOUGLAS LINDSAY was born in Scotland in 1964 at 2:38a.m. It rained.
Some decades later he left to live in Belgium. Meeting his future wife, Kathryn, he took the opportunity to drop out of reality and join her on a Foreign & Commonwealth Office posting to Senegal. It was here that he developed the character of Barney Thomson, while sitting in an air-conditioned apartment drinking gin & tonic at eight o'clock in the morning. Since the late 1990s, he has penned seven books in the Barney series, and several other crime novels written in the non-traditional style. His first book, The Long Midnight of Barney Thomson, has been translated into several languages and will soon be released as the major motion picture event, The Legend of Barney Thomson, starring Robert Carlyle, Emma Thompson and Ray Winstone.

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay but the ending left me flat 19 Mar 2014

I like the way the author writes, but the ending of the book just made me want to scream. It wasn't a long book, another of dislikes, but it was funny in parts and he did a fairly good job. I did find at times I was getting a bit confused, mainly because it jumps around and it is a little bit too far 'out there.' For Zombie fans, it's a good quick read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another excellent instalment in the series 3 Jan 2014

A new Barney Thomson book, full length or novella, is always welcome.
This one picks up with Barney being called in to help the coalition government, David Cameron in particular.
The satire is there as usual, perhaps dripping with lightly more vitriol than normal, but if you're not offended by the language, there are some truly hilarious parts to this. It's quite possibly the most grotesque and violent of the series, but in a good way! More please!
