Publisher Description

The New York Times–bestselling author’s “comic thriller sends a hard-luck New Jersey club owner tumbling through a mad, mad world of assorted nuts” (Kirkus Reviews).

As a down-on-his-luck Irish bouncer at a seedy New Jersey bar, Daniel McEvoy succeeded in solving a bizarre string of murders—including that of the girl he loved—with the help of a motley crew of unlikely characters. But that wasn’t the end of his troubles. Now, after being politely asked at gunpoint to deliver a package for a local gangster who blames McEvoy for his mother’s death, he’s dodging traps and eluding corrupt cops while also trying to locate a missing aunt with a serious drinking problem. If he doesn’t develop one himself first . . .

“McEvoy’s nicely evoked mix of Irish fatalism, resigned violence, and hilarity would make any story a winner; the cast of witty, quirky supporting characters and the pleasingly twisted story line are a bonus. Recommended for readers who enjoy the gritty crime and humor of Elmore Leonard and Michael Van Rooy.” —Booklist

“Compared with that criminal mastermind Artemis Fowl, Dan McEvoy is a bungling idiot. But that’s essentially the appeal of Eoin Colfer’s first adult protagonist.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Entertaining . . . His terse, muscular prose makes even a car chase seem like a new idea.” —Kirkus Reviews
