Customer Review

on 19 December 2013
I first came across the author Allan Guthrie in the ebook anthology True Brit Grit. Being curious I decided to investigate more of his work. Bad Men is a crime novel set in Edinburgh featuring one of Mr Guthrie's most interesting characters. Gordon Pearce is an ex-con and loner with only his three legged dog Hilda for company. But he's also a hard man with a heart who unwillingly gets mixed up with the Baxter family whose pregnant daughter May is being threatened by her abusive husband Wallace. Events soon pit Pearce against Wallace but things are not as black and white as they seem. Suddenly halfway through the book events take a dark and sinister direction where horror and terror are absolute. The narrative is packed with short, very readable passages full of random violence and is definitely not for the faint hearted. The novel ends with a bleak finale where no one escapes without some heavy damage. If you've got the stomach for it this may be just your thing. Enjoy.
