Delightfully dark and whitty,

This review is from: The Long Midnight Of Barney Thomson (Kindle Edition)
The Long Midnight of Barney Thompson is a darkly funny and surreal murder mystery with a fantastically witty and evil twist. Once I started reading this book I could not put it down. Barney Thompson, the main protagonist is pathetic, strangely likeable and not your normal anti-hero. DI Holdall is a very belivable character, showing all the foibles of an overworked under-appreciated police officer, who has never really shone at his job and is watching far younger men fast tracking past him
The other characters are neatly written with a slight tongue in cheek characterisation. The references to the tv soap obessed women and the backstabbing male characters almost turns the male/female roles on there heads.
It was a hugely satisfying read and I would recomment it anyone.
