Gary is a sweet and decent man. Only two things would improve his life - having children with his gorgeous wife Pauline, and a lower golf handicap. Both are unlikely. Pauline is wondering how she ended up living in an ugly little house, driving a second-hand car and making a living dressing up as Tinkerbell. She's planning to leave Gary for a self-made carpet millionaire. Findlay, the Carpet King of Scotland, wants to trade in his obese wife for a younger model. But if he goes for a divorce she'll take him to the cleaners. If only there was some way she could be made to disappear...Lee, Gary's luckless brother, has botched one too many drug deals. Local crime overlord Ranta Campbell gives him one more job - one last chance to get it right. Lee's done some bad things - but murder? When Gary gets smashed on the head by a golf ball and miraculously develops an absolutely perfect swing, everyone finds their fates rest on the final day of the Open Championship...

“The Amateurs”

A highly entertaining and funny book, that reminded me a lot of Christopher Brookmyre and a little of Irvine Welsh. Don't worry if you don't like (or even understand) golf, as the plot has so many diverse... More

“Golfing tips this is not”

The Amateurs is a comic novel about a golfing everyman who finds himself in some extraordinary circumstances. Pretty standard fare then? Well kind of but John Niven's dark sense of humour lends to say the least,... More
