McEvoy now owns Slotz, a New Jersey casino, along with partner Jason Dyal of the "Beefcake Brigade." Seedy Slotz has an extreme makeover and takes on a "colorful" new name. Jason redefines Happy Hour and business is booming, but McEvoy has a "Celtic sixth sense that only predicts bad stuff. Maybe that old maxim the luck of the Irish doesn't apply to me." He realizes "it's always darkest before the dawn unless there's an eclipse, if you'll excuse me mangling my metaphors."
There's a long character list of questionable friends. Detective Ronelle Deacon, "a special friend without benefits," is now a lieutenant. "Ronnie has more than confidence, she has anger hanging over her like a heat shimmer." Delusional Sophia Delano is another friend without benefits, and her pining for long-lost husband Carmine makes him seem real. Zeb Kronski "is a douche cosmetic surgeon" and now has a dubious "medical license through some outrageous wheeler dealing involving a fat envelope." And military psychiatrist Simon Moriarty dispenses "cyber psy" via social media and McEvoy's shrunken head atop his "Chewbacca looking [expletive deleted]" body, but the shrink's tweets arrive suspiciously as McEvoy works things out for himself.
Then there are those less friendly. Corrupt cops Krieger and Fortz are "the wrong arm of the law" and videotape McEvoy's "interrogation" session. The closest "potato eating gangster" Irish Mike Madden has come to Ireland is a St. Patrick's Day parade and "is as dumb as moss.Read more ›
Ex-army sergeant Daniel McEvoy is ready to say goodbye New Jersey's lawless underworld and concentrate on his new life as club owner and bona fide boyfriend. But when he's abducted and driven into the Hudson by a vengeful crime boss, he realises that the New Jersey underworld isn't ready to say goodbye to him.
If Dan is to survive, he will have to evade bad guys on both sides of the law and find the missing aunt who once taught him how to handle boobs.
Eoin Colfer, author of the Artemis Fowl novels, turns his outstanding talent to a world as criminally funny as it is dark and compelling.
Well I had been looking forward to this for a few months now, having lapped up the first Colfer crime caper, Plugged when it came out back in 2011. Plugged introduced us to Daniel McEvoy and his small circle of friends, Zeb, Sofia, Jason and Ronelle. Fast, fun and fresh it was one of my best reads of 2011.
Second time around for McEvoy and the gang and I was bored and unimpressed for the most part. I can typically gauge my gut reaction to how a book is going by the speed at which I read it. This was 310 pages long and it took me a week or thereabouts to get to the halfway point. Never a good sign.
Yesterday morning, on page 164 Colfer has McEvoy musing ......"If it was up to me, I would throw in the towel right now and spare myself the rest of this s***** day." Spooky how at that particular moment in time I couldn't have felt any closer to Daniel!
However, being made of sterner stuff I cracked on and it improved enough for me to knock off the remaining half of the book yesterday morning and evening.Read more ›

A fun, fast paced thriller. This one kept me just as entertained as Colfer's "Plugged". Daniel McEvoy is a great character. Hope to see another story!Published on February 14, 2014 by ND runner
