Description

I have a few copies of my 2013 novel back in stock at The Last Bookshop and they are available as new, signed copies.

"It's got everything a pop-lit novel for guys needs...sex, guns, black humour, Scotland, religious fanatics, mercenaries, drinking...It even comes with recommended drams and tasting notes for each chapter."

Ken Smith's Herald Diary: "Tom modestly says the simultaneous consumption of whisky is not essential to enjoying the book, 'but it probably helps.' If only religions had thought up such a wheeze, our churches might not be so empty."

Alan Taylor, Sunday Herald: "Each chapter highlights a particular whisky, and if you read the whole book in one sitting I confidently predict irreparable damage to your liver."

The Shetland Times: "A Whisky in Monsterville. How does it rate. Highly, I think.
Unlike many of those who tread the best seller trail, Tom Morton is genuinely erudite, with an enviable breadth of knowledge covering music, literature, and a lot more of what makes life worth living so all sorts of stuff crops up to lighten and enliven the narrative. That narrative carries you professionally along. But meanwhile the book holds you in a way most in the genre don't, through well drawn characters, humour, and yes, erudition."

Tom Morton's A Whisky in Monsterville is a compulsive page-turner set in the Scottish Highlands, featuring mad religious fundamentalists, retired special forces officers, amazing food, druids, hydro-electricity and extreme geology. Not to mention the Loch Ness Monster

It's macabre, funny, violent, sexy and enormously entertaining. And it's the world's first interactive whisky thriller, offering readers the chance to join the characters in sampling single malts as the story progresses.


"I was inspired by decades of reading thrillers set in Florida," says Morton, a BBC Radio Scotland DJ and former Scotsman journalist who also writes extensively about whisky. "People like John D MacDonald, Charles Willeford, James W Hall, Elmore Leonard and Carl Hiassen. Florida, from Miami to Key West, is a fantastic but very compressed location for a crime novel. It has drugs, tourism, odd weather, cities and wilderness, and a changing cast of extremely eccentric residents.

"I asked myself: Is there anywhere in Scotland like that? And naturally I thought of the Great Glen. Fort William at one end, Inverness at the other, and a monster in between. What could be better?"

A Whisky in Monsterville (subtitled 'Loch Ness: people are dying to visit') centres on retired special forces office Murricane, a character who has already featured in Morton's previous books Guttered and Serpentine (Mainstream Publishing). Living on a barge beached on the shores of Loch Ness, near Drumnadrochit. Murricane is looking for a quiet life. Until he fishes a horribly disfigured body out of the loch.
