Mystery & Suspense • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

This first foray into adult fiction by the author of ARTEMIS FOWL is quite a jolt. Daniel McEvoy, formerly a peacekeeper in Lebanon, now uses his military skills as a club bouncer in suburban New Jersey. Narrator John Keating captures McEvoy's Irish accent and produces a plethora of accents for the international characters in this zany crime caper. The story becomes increasingly convoluted as the action and violence escalate. Keating’s best character, hands down, is Dr. Zeb, a former acquaintance who acts as McEvoy’s conscience by speaking in his head, sometimes at the most inopportune moments. As for the title—Daniel is very sensitive about his balding pate and has just added hair plugs, which he continually mentions. His vulnerability about his hair increases the humor and humanity of this crazy story. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2011]
