    1. This is my first Hutton novel, but not my first Doug Lindsay book that pleasure went to his most excellent creation, Barney Thomson For those of you who have read the work from the Barney series and if you haven t you should , you ll be aware of the amazing shades of darkness that Lindsay can create as well as the tremendous use of humour and character that are as much part of the sandwich as the butter and the bread.What s different about the Hutton story in The Plague Of Crows is that it exist [...]

    2. A Plague of Crows is the second of Lindsay s police procedural novels with Edinburgh cop, DS Thomas Hutton at the helm Lindsay is best known for his Barney Thomson series At the outset Hutton, usually hellbent on drinking and screwing himself into an early grave, is on a health kick, living in a tent at the foot of a Scottish mountain after being suspended for fighting with a colleague He d been having an affair with the man s wife Hutton has been undergoing psychological evaluation and, despite [...]

    3. The second police procedural in the DS Thomas Hutton series pits the complex and downtrodden lawman against a brutal serial killer with a penchant for public violence in the most macabre fashion.Hutton, living as a recluse in the woods following a mandatory leave of absence from the force is brought back into the modern world where he s reinstated to capture a killer who s sadistic nature is like nothing the police have seen The victims taken to a secluded woodland area, are cemented in place, t [...]

    4. I read the first book in the Thomas Hutton series and thought that was worth 5 stars The reason I gave this one star less was because in the previous novel Douglas Lindsay s portrayal of Thomas Hutton was note perfect but now he seems to have moved the character into DS Bruce Robertson of Irvine Welsh Filth fame which I think is a mistake.However, that aside, the character is very well written in the first person , VERY dark yet VERY funny and really, REALLY grusome in places

    5. I found this book very enthralling The story rolls along at a good pace with interest maintained by the history of the hero and the relationships politics between other police officers The build up is both gripping surprising However I then found the last moments of the finale to be rather a let down and rather unbelievable The chapter detailing the so called explanation confession was rather baffling and left me rather in the air.

    6. i recently finished and i have to say i enjoyed it even than the first one the crimes are gruesome some of the strangest i have read but the backstory we learn about Hutton is tragic and heartbreakingly brutal talk about a protagonist with demons glad to hear there will be a third book, looking forward to it

    7. Once again fantastic actually laughed out loud at numerous points throughout.A definite five stars Brilliant writing a great sense of humour Felt like I was literally going insane laughing out loud then being self conscious enough to glance roundI live on my own Would definitely recommend to others

    8. I enjoyed the first book in this Hutton series by Douglas Lindsay, but I liked this even better because Hutton s complexities and background are thoroughly explored It is a riveting story but not for the faint of heart It s graphic in ways than one It s also a police procedural unlike any other I ve read.

    9. A bit darker than the first, but still up there with a good thriller.Did think I d missed one of the series mind, as there seemed to be an event that happened with a colleague that had him suspended in the beginning of the book, found that a bit strange, didn t seem to follow on from last book.

    10. I love the voice of this series although I have become than a little tired of serial killer stories Especially serial killers stories where the copper detective ends up in the sights of the killer.
