Daniel McEvoy is a bouncer at a dive bar in New Jersey scraping by in his very strange life when things really go south. The love of his life Connie is murdered and Daniel ends up neck deep in the case, along with his drunken Army psychologist, a crazy detective and a ghost. Daniel becomes the target of bad cops, mobsters, his unstable neighbor who thinks they are soul mates. The pacing is non stop with great and very funny banter, and a bevy of weird characters. The first adult novel by the author of the "Artemis Fowl" series, would appeal to fans of "Carl Hiaasen", "Elmore Leonard" and "Tim Dorsey".
