In Scotland, four American students are found with their throats slit, and each has been given a chilling haircut. The FBI arrive, but they are too late to prevent another terrible murder, and into this walks Barney Thomson, looking for a short back and sides and a new hair colour. (Goodreads Synopsis)

The Face of Death is a wonderful novella that bridges the gap between the second and third Barney Thomson novels. It was a quick, easy read that made me smile as Barney once again winds up a little too close for comfort to a series of murders in the town he's passing through.

This series continues to enthrall me and I am now pressing on with the next of the novels.
