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.

If you like Eoin Colfer you might also like to read books by Christopher Brookmyre, Colin Bateman and Zane Radcliffe.

Synopsis

Plugged by Eoin Colfer

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.

About the Author

Eoin Colfer

Both Eoin Colfer’s parents were teachers and young Eoin was taught by his dad Billy at Wexford’s Christian Brothers primary. Eoin remembers his dad’s presence in school as “witty…[he] made school fun.” Colfer junior’s first attempt at serious writing came in the sixth grade. “I wrote a play for the class about Norse Gods. Everyone died in the end except me.”

Eoin followed in his parents’ footsteps and trained to be a teacher but his writing didn't stop and his first book, Benny and Omar, appeared in 1999 and instantly achieved bestselling status in Ireland. Eoin's most famous books are the incomparable Artemis Fowl series but he has written some excellent one off novels such as The Legend of the Worst Boy in the World.

WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT EOIN COLFER...

“Wildly original… and you thought fairy stories were just for kids.”
T2 (The Telegraph) on Artemis Fowl

“It’s a highly original adventure story with an action-packed plot which twists and turns right to the end – a kind of William Gibson meets the Hobbit/Irish Legends. It has all the right ingredients.” Marc Lambert, Children’s Programme Director at the Edinburgh Festival on Artemis Fowl

“Make sure you buy it!” Denise Van Outen, Channel 4’s The Big Breakfast on Artemis Fowl
