Fin McPhail is in deep trouble and Amsterdam isn’t helping.
It wasn’t supposed to be like this. The city had promised an escape from all of his problems back in Scotland. It was the perfect fresh start – well-paid job, luxury apartment in the canal district, sobriety and celibacy.
But everything changed when he went on a blind date with an unhinged sexologist, and now the city’s dark side is closing in on him.
To make matters more complicated, his old life is hurtling back towards him in the shape of a stag party – four nutters from his hometown in Scotland, including his future brother-in-law and the former school bully – will arrive in the city within hours.
Over the course of one chaotic weekend, Fin McPhail will come face-to-face with all of his demons.
Vividly cinematic, Amsterdam Rampant draws on a potent blend of modern culture (Pulp Fiction, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, and the work of Donna Tartt and Iain Banks). A riotously entertaining novel exploring the neon shadows of Europe’s sin city, this 21st Century tale of sex, friendship, and coming to terms with the past will leave readers wanting more from Scotland’s newest literary star.
