The long-awaited crime caper so outlandish, so maniacal, so wickedly funny, it could have only come from the mind that brought you Artemis Fowl.
Daniel McEvoy has a problem. Well, really, he has several, but for this Irish ex-pat bouncer at a seedy, small-time casino the fact that his girlfriend was just murdered in the parking lot is uppermost in his mind.
That is until lots of people around him start dying, and not of natural causes. Suddenly Daniel's got half the New Jersey mob, dirty cops, and his man-crazy upstairs neighbor after him and he still doesn't know what's going on. Bullets are flying, everybody's on the take and it all may be more than Daniel's new hair plugs can handle.
And Daniel's got to find the guy who put in those hair plugs—or at least his body—and fast, or else he'll never get that voice out of his head. Head-spinning plot twists, breakneck pacing and some of the best banter this side of Elmore Leonard's Detroit, will keep you on the edge of your seat and itching for more.

About the Author-
  • Eoin Colfer (pronounced Owen) is the New York Times bestselling author of the blockbuster Artemis Fowl series, among many other works. He was born in Wexford on the southeast coast of Ireland in 1965 and first developed an interest in writing in elementary school, captivated by the Viking stories inspired by history that he was reading at the time. He has worked in Saudi Arabia, Tunisia, and Italy, and his first book, Benny and Omar, published in 1998, was based on his experiences in Tunisia; it has since been translated into many languages. In 2001, the first Artemis Fowl book was published to great success. His Artemis Fowl books have now sold over twelve million copies worldwide.

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine This first foray into adult fiction by the author of ARTEMIS FOWL is quite a jolt. Daniel McEvoy, formerly a peacekeeper in Lebanon, now uses his military skills as a club bouncer in suburban New Jersey. Narrator John Keating captures McEvoy's Irish accent and produces a plethora of accents for the international characters in this zany crime caper. The story becomes increasingly convoluted as the action and violence escalate. Keating's best character, hands down, is Dr. Zeb, a former acquaintance who acts as McEvoy's conscience by speaking in his head, sometimes at the most inopportune moments. As for the title--Daniel is very sensitive about his balding pate and has just added hair plugs, which he continually mentions. His vulnerability about his hair increases the humor and humanity of this crazy story. S.G.B. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine
