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.

Listener Opinions

    " Nice read.. good thriller. A bit scary. I like it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bill | 2/10/2014

    " A delightful book about an Irishman living in New Jersey and working for a casino. The tale is well spun as I enjoyed every minute of it. It really shows that Colfer is not just a writer of children's stories. I highly recommend this book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nicole | 2/5/2014

    " By the author of the *Artemis Fowl* series, but this is not a YA book - violent, with some very blue language. Hilariously funny at times, but not for the kiddos. The book is a "Florida wacko"/Carl Hiaasen type, but it is set in New Jersey, so if you like Hiaasen's (adult) works, go for it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lissa | 2/3/2014

    " A great quirky crime novel. A bit too descriptive for my tastes, which is to say, any description at all.... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jo-Ann | 1/25/2014

    " I love a book that makes me laugh out loud. Great characters. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Rubiana | 1/3/2014

    " Colfer should stick with Artemis Fowl "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amanda | 12/8/2013

    " I read the Artemis Fowl books when I was younger, so I decided to give Plugged a try. It was my first time reading a crime/mystery novel and I was caught off guard by the violence. Otherwise, fast and funny read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jody | 8/14/2013

    " Somewhat hard to believe, that one man's life could go so wrong so fast and it all turns out ok? But it's a quick and easy if violent read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chad Saunders | 1/21/2013

    " Pretty good. I'll give the next book a try. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lalitha | 11/22/2012

    " The first adult book from the famed author of Artemis Fowl. Maybe he should stick to what he is awesome at. The book is funny, fast paced and mildly interesting. The flashbacks are a bit confusing at times. The climax is downright hilarious and predictable. It falls short of expectations. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Amy | 11/20/2012

    " I was actually excited to read this book as I have enjoyed the other books by this author. I understand that this is a book for 'adults' but the pervasive bad language really put me off to the point where I did not even bother finishing the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathleen | 11/17/2012

    " Fast and fun. A good, quick read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bernard | 9/22/2012

    " Hilariously witty plot. Absolutely love Colfer's style. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Keith | 9/2/2012

    " Decent Book. I liked the characters. The story seemed a bit forced and ragged to me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen Arendt | 8/18/2012

    " Hilarious but raunchy "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dwayne Lynn | 6/11/2012

    " Good, fast-paced ADULT fun. I enjoyed it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lynn | 5/1/2012

    " Not what I expected. quite predictable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karenzielinski | 4/24/2012

    " This is not your kid's Artemis Fowl. It is an adult version of fast paced fun! Irish humor abounds. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Amy | 11/8/2011

    " I was actually excited to read this book as I have enjoyed the other books by this author. I understand that this is a book for 'adults' but the pervasive bad language really put me off to the point where I did not even bother finishing the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie | 11/7/2011

    " So much fun! If you are a fan of Elmore Leonard or Carl Hiaasen, then Eoin Colfer's first attempt (I think) at adult noir will enchant you without being overly derivative. As with all of Colfer's novels, I recommend finding an audiobook unless you can do a really good Irish accent in your head. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 11/2/2011

    " I wanted to give this book one million stars because I love Eoi Colfer (or really, Artemis Fowl) so much, but this was for the most part a decent, entertaining read "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robin | 11/2/2011

    " It wasn't as good as I would have hoped - ok for a bubble gum read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Chris | 11/1/2011

    " I don't know why this guy writes an amazing book like "Airman" and then writes a book with such offensive language as this one. I guess I'll just stick to the books for kids because I don't want the language he seems to think adults need! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Don | 10/28/2011

    " I didn't know I could have this much fun in 250 pages. I heard about this one from a review in the Sunday NY Times book review and it exceeded my expectations. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cali | 10/27/2011

    " Actually I would give this 3.5 stars. This wacky crime novel is a very quick read so be sure and check it out of the library instead of purchasing it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jody | 10/26/2011

    " Somewhat hard to believe, that one man's life could go so wrong so fast and it all turns out ok? But it's a quick and easy if violent read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Suzanne | 10/21/2011

    " Funny! Interesting plot, funny wisecracking main character. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ken | 10/12/2011

    " Did you ever catch that Jimmy Fallon, Queen Latifah movie on one of its many basic cable showings? Did you ever wish there were a novel with a similar feel? Well, you got your wish. I didn't get mine: those hours of my life are gone forever. I did, however, cut my losses halfway through. "
