Kurzbeschreibung

12. September 2013
Ex-army sergeant Daniel McEvoy is ready to say goodbye New Jersey's lawless underworld and concentrate on his new life as club owner and bona fide boyfriend. But when he's abducted and driven into the Hudson by a vengeful crime boss, he realises that the New Jersey underworld isn't ready to say goodbye to him. If Dan is to survive, he will have to evade bad guys on both sides of the law and find the missing aunt who once taught him how to handle boobs. Eoin Colfer, author of the Artemis Fowl novels, turns his outstanding talent to a world as criminally funny as it is dark and compelling.

Produktbeschreibungen

Pressestimmen

" Dominated, driven, and fully animated by a refreshingly original voice . . . Great writing."--Lisa Scottoline, The Washington Post

" Incomparably clever and witty . . . Has a Quentin Tarantino-meets-Carl Hiaasen quality."--Los Angeles Times

" Lots of bloody fun." --The New York Times Book Review

"[The narrator's] nicely evoked mix of Irish fatalism, resigned violence, and hilarity would make any story a winner; the cast of witty, quirky supporting characters and the pleasingly twisted story line are a bonus." --Booklist

"Colfer’s work is entertaining and expertly judged. His terse, muscular prose makes even a car chase seem like a new idea, and his McEvoy is a durable raconteur." --Kirkus Review

"Colfer presents a second glorious episode (after Plugged) in the violent, hilarious, and just plain bizarre life of Irish army vet and Jersey casino owner Dan McEvoy….noir devotees with a twisted sense of humor will eat it up." --Library Journal

"Incredible imagination won’t suffice to solve this spectacular whodunit, a five-star story in the vein of Dave Barry that has more twists and turns than a California cloverleaf. Tell everyone you know to get SCREWED. Better still, buy a copy of it." --Bookreporter.com

5.0 von 5 Sternen Tell everyone you know to get SCREWED. Better still, buy a copy of it 21. Mai 2013
Von Bookreporter - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
If Raymond Chandler married Elmore Leonard and engaged Carl Hiassen to be a surrogate mother, Irish expat Daniel McEvoy would be the progeny. Oh, grow up! Such things are possible in this zany crime caper.

McEvoy now owns Slotz, a New Jersey casino, along with partner Jason Dyal of the "Beefcake Brigade." Seedy Slotz has an extreme makeover and takes on a "colorful" new name. Jason redefines Happy Hour and business is booming, but McEvoy has a "Celtic sixth sense that only predicts bad stuff. Maybe that old maxim the luck of the Irish doesn't apply to me." He realizes "it's always darkest before the dawn unless there's an eclipse, if you'll excuse me mangling my metaphors."

There's a long character list of questionable friends. Detective Ronelle Deacon, "a special friend without benefits," is now a lieutenant. "Ronnie has more than confidence, she has anger hanging over her like a heat shimmer." Delusional Sophia Delano is another friend without benefits, and her pining for long-lost husband Carmine makes him seem real. Zeb Kronski "is a douche cosmetic surgeon" and now has a dubious "medical license through some outrageous wheeler dealing involving a fat envelope." And military psychiatrist Simon Moriarty dispenses "cyber psy" via social media and McEvoy's shrunken head atop his "Chewbacca looking [expletive deleted]" body, but the shrink's tweets arrive suspiciously as McEvoy works things out for himself.

Then there are those less friendly. Corrupt cops Krieger and Fortz are "the wrong arm of the law" and videotape McEvoy's "interrogation" session. The closest "potato eating gangster" Irish Mike Madden has come to Ireland is a St. Patrick's Day parade and "is as dumb as moss." Evelyn Costello, McEvoy's "addiction issues" aunt, is only four years older than he is, and there's his younger-by-a-decade third step-grandmother Edit Vikander-Costello: "She pronounces Edit to rhyme with Michael Jackson's Beat It." McEvoy reflects, "Those are violent people but I can't deny that [I'm] the common denominator in all their twisted scenarios."

Irish Mike requests McEvoy deliver a package to college-boy mob boss Edward Shea, protected by his "nom-de-goon," Freckles. Predictably, McEvoy gets into the thick of things he didn't know existed. Horrors! Could this be the last zany Irish expat crime caper?

Amongst randy humor are philosophy zingers, like a Happy Meal with sugarcoated broccoli: "The key to staying alive until you die is to not get yourself killed." More ponderable is: "Soldiers have this mindset that they gotta be tough as nails 24/7. So we dampen down all the poison in our chests, forging a rancid cannonball to be fired at a later date, possibly at people who don't deserve it."

Eoin ("It's pronounced Owen!") Colfer, the international bestselling author of the Artemis Fowl series, sets a bawdy theme in his second hilarious crime novel, following PLUGGED. For sensitive eyes, there's a minefield of quasi f-bombs, along with the real thing.

Incredible imagination won't suffice to solve this spectacular whodunit, a five-star story in the vein of Dave Barry that has more twists and turns than a California cloverleaf. Tell everyone you know to get SCREWED. Better still, buy a copy of it.

I'd read the Artemis Fowl books to my kids and was unaware Eoin Colfer had written any adult novels. It's very "gritty" but well worth the read. It's definitely prompted me to buy some other adult Colfer for my Kindle.

Synopsis/blurb........
Ex-army sergeant Daniel McEvoy is ready to say goodbye New Jersey's lawless underworld and concentrate on his new life as club owner and bona fide boyfriend. But when he's abducted and driven into the Hudson by a vengeful crime boss, he realises that the New Jersey underworld isn't ready to say goodbye to him.
If Dan is to survive, he will have to evade bad guys on both sides of the law and find the missing aunt who once taught him how to handle boobs.
Eoin Colfer, author of the Artemis Fowl novels, turns his outstanding talent to a world as criminally funny as it is dark and compelling.
Well I had been looking forward to this for a few months now, having lapped up the first Colfer crime caper, Plugged when it came out back in 2011. Plugged introduced us to Daniel McEvoy and his small circle of friends, Zeb, Sofia, Jason and Ronelle. Fast, fun and fresh it was one of my best reads of 2011.
Second time around for McEvoy and the gang and I was bored and unimpressed for the most part. I can typically gauge my gut reaction to how a book is going by the speed at which I read it. This was 310 pages long and it took me a week or thereabouts to get to the halfway point. Never a good sign.
Yesterday morning, on page 164 Colfer has McEvoy musing ......"If it was up to me, I would throw in the towel right now and spare myself the rest of this s***** day." Spooky how at that particular moment in time I couldn't have felt any closer to Daniel!
However, being made of sterner stuff I cracked on and it improved enough for me to knock off the remaining half of the book yesterday morning and evening. There were a few chuckles to be had and some enjoyable passages, particularly when McEvoy was at the mercy of the dodgy cops, Fortz and Krieger and also when he dealt with Freckles and Shea-ster. These glimpses of sunshine alone weren't sufficient to overcome what was for me a dull and uninspiring book.
McEvoy in the two years since I read the last outing is in exactly the same place emotionally as he was before. We have the same flashbacks and memories of his abusive father and difficult childhood. He has the same relationship issues with his delusional on/off (or never on to be more accurate) "girlfriend" Sofia. He shares the same tired banter with his irritating friend Zeb and his nemesis Mike is still on the scene. Colfer puts McEvoy into situations with firearms that you know won't result in him taking decisive action which could have concluded the book a hundred pages earlier.....why not?
In the final analysis, I was deeply disappointed having expected much more. I haven't been put off Colfer totally and I would read him again but not with the same cast of characters.
Oscillating between scoring it a 2 and a 3. Disappointment prevails 2 from 5
I borrowed my copy from my local library.

1.0 von 5 Sternen not worth it... 17. November 2013
Von Friðrik - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This book has no real plot and the main character is not interesting enough for the reader to care.

Instead of letting the story flow naturally the author puts a lot of energu in to being funny, wise crap, in order to make up for the lack of any real plot or story line.
