Summary/Review: The author of the Artemis Fowl books branches out into grown-up novels with this crime adventure.  Daniel McEvoy is a war veteran turned bouncer, who has to struggle with his new hair implants and not getting killed when he stumbles into the middle of an organized crime ring (hence the double pun of the title).  The story is a humorous parody/pastiche of the mistaken identity crime novel.  It’s alternately bonkers and vulgar and while enjoyable it’s no masterpiece.

Recommended booksYeats Is Dead! A Mystery by 15 Irish Writers by Joseph O’Connor and Payback by Thomas Kelly.
