One of our Debuts of the Year 2011.

 

May 2011 Debut of the Month.

From the bestselling and exceptionally gifted writer of the Artemis Fowl children's titles comes a brilliant, darkly comic, adult crime debut.  Written with the warmth and wit that make the Artemis Fowl novels so irresistible, though with additional torture and violence, Plugged  shows Eoin Colfer as a bright new talent for adult readers new to his writing as well as those readers who have loved and devoured his Artemis Fowl titles over the last 10 years.

Plugged Synopsis

Dan, an Irishman who's ended up in New Jersey, finds himself embroiled in a world of murder, kidnapping and corrupt cops. Dan works as a bouncer in a seedy club, half in love with hostess Connie. When Connie is murdered on the premises, a vengeful Dan finds himself embroiled in an increasingly deadly sequence of events in which his doctor friend Zeb goes mysteriously missing, a cop-killing female cop becomes his only ally, and he makes an enemy of ruthless drug-dealer Mike Madden.
