DS Hutton in Paperback

by Douglas Lindsay - 14:14 on 23 October 2017

The world of publishing rejoiced today with the official launch of the paperback versions of the three DS Thomas Hutton crime novels.

For years the people of Scotland have been living happy, contented lives, with virtually everything going their way. Most agreed, however, that the one small blip on this Elysian landscape was the lack of the Hutton books in paperback.

“Many have been desperate to read the Hutton novels for years,” said Dr Ian Shackleton of the Glasgow Institute of Crime Fiction and Unicorns, “but are aware that e-readers rot your brain. There seemed enough about Scotland that was brain-rotting, without adding this to the list. For those people, and for the Scottish economy in general, the publication of these books is extraordinarily good news.”

Analysts predict that within three months of the Hutton paperback release, Scotland’s GDP will top 15%, it will secede from the Union, take up the UK’s permanent place on the UNSC, become the world’s diplomat, and solve all problems everywhere, resulting in world peace, a stable global population, a perfectly balanced planetary environment, and proper winters.

“Alternatively,” said Shackleton, as he looked out over the golden spires of Glasgow on a grim, wet October afternoon, “we’ll all be dead by Christmas. Could go either way.”

The highly anticipated fourth book in the Hutton series – SEE THAT MY GRAVE IS KEPT CLEAN – will be released in the spring of 2018.
