Bunker Man/McLean, Duncan/Paper/0099534819/S054-C1
On Sale. "With his second novel Duncan McLean has hit his stride as a magnificent writer with liberal empathy for man's dark side... Rob is a newly-married janitor on Scotland's north-east coast. A hooded figure who holes up in a concrete pillbox on the beach has been seen lurking near the school. Our man takes it upon himself to confront the 'pervert' but his interest in the 'Bunker Man' gradually tilts from apprehension into vigilantism, then obsessed depravity... Ultimately, 'Bunker Man' is very shocking in its violence, through which this message belts home: do not blame the victims." - Gill Pyrah, Daily Telegraph. "'Bunker Man' marks another massive blow against the supremacy of literary London... what really gives the book its charge is the powerful sense of menace... From the first page it is clear that the axe is going to fall, but who will be wielding it and who will be cloven only becomes clear right at the end... the tension is almost unbearable." - Tibor Fischer, The Times. "Re-locate David Lynch's 'Blue Velvet' in north-east Scotland, multiply the perversion factor by 20 and you've got 'Bunker Man'. It's a brilliant conga-line of depravity... entertainment at its good, old-fashioned best." - Select.
