Shunned at work and at home, unable to break out of a twenty-year rut, each dull day blends seamlessly into the next.However, there is no life so tedious that it cannot be spiced up by inadvertent murder, a deranged psychopath, and a freezer full of neatly packaged meat. Barney Thomson's uninteresting life is about to go from 0 to 60 in five seconds, as he enters the grotesque and comically absurd world of the serial killer… Praise for Douglas Lindsay:"The plot, Russian literature fans, is a modern spin on Dostoyevsky’s Crime and Punishment.
