Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945), Crime & mystery

From the bestselling author of the Artemis Fowl children's titles comes a brilliant darkly comic adult crime debut.

Dan, an Irishman who's ended up in New Jersey, finds himself embroiled in a world of murder, kidnapping and corrupt cops.

Dan works as a bouncer in a seedy club, half in love with hostess Connie. When Connie is murdered on the premises, a vengeful Dan finds himself embroiled in an increasingly deadly sequence of events in which his doctor friend Zeb goes mysteriously missing, a cop-killing female cop becomes his only ally, and he makes an enemy of ruthless drug-dealer Mike Madden.

Praise for Plugged

  • Artemis Fowl creator Eoin Colfer heads off into zanily comic adult noir territory with Plugged . . . McEvoy finds himself sucked into a maelstrom of outlandish criminal shenanigans, a knockabout farce with Elmore Leonard-style wisecracking at every turn - Metro

  • I loved the voice. I loved the dark streets. I love the story - Harlan Coben

  • Eoin Colfer . . . is hugely inventive and intelligent and an instinctive storyteller, who happens to write beautifully and elegantly as well - Michael Morpurgo

  • Violent, surreal and eccentric, this offering couldn't be further from his Artemis Fowl series - Sun

  • A non-stop, fever-pitched crime thriller . . . Genius at work - Ridley Pearson

  • Colfer is an engaging and inventive writer with a strong sense of the rhythm of a story . . . always entertaining page by page - Guardian

  • This is Sopranos territory - where terrible deeds are mixed with the painful banalities of life in a way that brings laughter among the tears and gnaws at your heart. It's a fine debut - Daily Mail

  • DON'T PICK UP THIS BOOK if you want to get anything else done for the next day or two. It's too sharp, too funny, and it won't let you go - Don Winslow
