Publisher's Summary

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.

Great book, wrong narrator

For anyone who read the Artemis Fowl series, John Keating's narration will be a huge disappointment. Colfer is a witty and smart writer, but Keating trivializes and "cartoons" the writing. Why oh why didn't the wonderful Nathaniel Parker read this book... especially since it is Colfer's first, and we hope not last, venture into writing for adults. Still and all, a must listen because the writing is so good.

An Irish Chili Palmer

To be honest, it took me a while to warm up to Daniel McEvoy, the -- dare I say "hero"? -- of Plugged. Daniel is a cross between Chili Palmer of "Get Shorty" and some sort of comic book Ninja (anybody old enough to remember Remo Williams?) But he IS funny. Boy, is he funny. There are about half a dozen plot lines, skillfully interwoven, with at least that many characters I want to get to know better. The Jewish doctor living in Daniel's head is a hoot, and Daniel's military shrink alone is worth the price of the book.

And then, there's the narrator. Who is this John Keating guy? Why haven't I listened to 47 other things he's narrated? He catches exactly the right tone for each chacracter.

NOTE: I read a lot of YA fiction, and as a retired teacher of precocious adolescents, I love the Artemis Fowl books. This is NOT an Artemis Fowl book. Middle school librarians, be warned.
