Thrilling shouldn’t be this funny, funny shouldn’t be this thrilling.The first time somebody tried to kill him was an accident.The second time was deliberate.
Now Paul Mulchrone finds himself on the run with nobody to turn to except a nurse who has read one-too-many crime novels and a renegade copper with a penchant for violence. Together they must solve one of the most notorious crimes in Irish history . . .
. . . or else they’ll be history.

I do love an Irish writer with a sense of humour and a way with words and Caimh McDonnell has both in spades. I really enjoyed this book from start to finish.
I’m very pleased to discover that this is the first book in a trilogy – hooray!
I loved all the characters – Paul the ‘granny whisperer’ and nurse Brigit Conroy who innocently and unwittingly were caught up in the underworld of criminal gangland and have to flee for their lives and Bunny McGarry the Hurley wielding DS who is trying to help Paul who was once a young member of his Hurley team and therefore ‘one of his boys’ to be protected.
The comic timing in what is also a well written and plotted crime fiction novel is superb. Far too many witticisms to quote here, although I was going to try but it’s packed full of funny bits and choosing the odd one or two would not do justice to the rest.
Mr Caimh McDonnell, you have another fan!
