"A powerful novel of psychological suspense by a young writer hailed as 'Scotland's answer to Roddy Doyle.'"--CosmopolitanRob and Karen Catto are a newly married young couple settling into their lives together on the northeast coast of Scotland. Rob's job as a janitor at the local school involves him in both the lives of his students and issues of security. So he takes sharp notice of a hulking figure in a parka lurking around the edges of the school, leering through windows, and squatting in an abandoned concrete bunker. As unpleasant and unsettling incidents multiply, Rob's suspicions tilt into obsession. It is time for a showdown. Time to confront Bunker Man . . .
The head janitor at a school in coastal Scotland seems to be doing well: he's got a good job and a new wife who enjoys making love to him. But she earns twice as much money as he does, and his thoughts about filth and danger and sex are making a racket like bees in his head. He sees a strange man in a hooded parka hanging out in the woods near the school and he catches a 14-year-old girl with a porn magazine. He worries about these things. He knows he's the school kids' "guardian angel," and soon he's going to have to make a stand. "Everybody kens there's bad things going on, but no one'll face up to them. Everyone says, Not my business, nothing to do with me. While evil rules everywhere!" Bunker Man is a skillfully fashioned horror tale, rich with Scottish slang.
