He’s big, he’s Oirish and he attracts trouble: Eoin Colfer moves on from Artemis

One of my bookselling colleagues referred to Eoin Colfer’s new book as ‘farce noir’ and very apt that is.  It is a complete departure from his Artemis Fowl books for children so don’t mistake it for another book for the young folk!  This is an absolute hoot of a book about Lincoln McEvoy who finds himself working as a bouncer in a third rate casino in New Jersey.  Just as he decides he is going to get serious with his occasional girl friend, she and some other seedy acquaintances start getting themselves killed.  He of course, can’t let it go, and the caper begins.  It is great fun and I enjoyed it immensely.  In store now
