This is his third novel, originally published by Headline in 2000, that romps through a comic tale of crime, passion and surreal humour at breakneck pace.

Originally published twenty five years ago by Poolbeg Press, the book was both a critical and commercial success, featuring on best seller lists and later named as The Sunday Tribune’s “Best Novel Of 1992.”
