Twenty Major - still smoking in Irish bars

When Twenty gets an early morning wake-up call from Detective Larry O'Rourke it seems like any other day. But when he discovers that his friend, record shop owner Tom O'Farrell, has been murdered and that his dying act was scrawl the number '60' in blood on his chest and dial Twenty's number in to his phone - he begins to think something might be out of the ordinary.

Meanwhile, time is running out for the people of Dublin. A plan has been hatched that is more sinister than seeing your granny tongue-kiss with an 18 year old and it all seems to centre around 'Folkapalooza' a massive free concert due to take place in the Phoenix Park.

Soon Twenty and his pals from Ron's bar find themselves plummeted into the crazy world of concert promotions, assassins, iPod based defence systems, mad taxi drivers, office espionage and devious minds. A combination that will test their friendships, and their ability to cope with hangovers, to the limit.

What does the number '60' signify? Who is the ginger albino and who is he working for?

Can Twenty, Jimmy the Bollix, Stinking Pete, Dirty Dave and the rest solve the puzzle before it's too late or will Dublin succumb to the dastardly mastermind behind it all?
