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. Lincoln 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 Linc'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 may be more than Linc's new hair plugs can handle. Linc's got to find the guy who put those hair plugs in-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.

Professional reviews

"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"
