In Screwed, Colfer adds and entirely new chapter to the adventures and misadventures of Daniel McEvoy, the down-on-his-luck Irish bouncer at a seedy New Jersey bar who, with the help of a motley crew of unlikely characters, solved a bizarre string of murders--including the one of the girl he loved. But people around him continue to die mysteriously, and Daniel is called into action once again. Colfer, beloved by millions for his Artemis Fowl series, has written a riveting and relentlessly paced sequel that is sure to garner international praise. With wildly inventive imagination and head-spinning plot twists, Screwed is a tour de force that rivals Carl Hiaasen at his very best. Ridley Pearson called Plugged "a brilliant, madcap mystery" and "genius at work." With Screwed, Colfer delivers that signature brilliance once again.

About the Author:

Eoin Colfer is the New York Times bestselling author of the Artemis Fowl series. Plugged, his first crime novel for adults, was shortlisted for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize.

Review:

" Dominated, driven, and fully animated by a refreshingly original voice . . . Great writing."--Lisa Scottoline, "The Washington Post"

" Incomparably clever and witty . . . Has a Quentin Tarantino-meets-Carl Hiaasen quality."--"Los Angeles Times"

" Lots of bloody fun." --"The New York Times Book Review"

"[The narrator's] nicely evoked mix of Irish fatalism, resigned violence, and hilarity would make any story a winner; the cast of witty, quirky supporting characters and the pleasingly twisted story line are a bonus." --"Booklist"

"Colfer's work is entertaining and expertly judged. His terse, muscular prose makes even a car chase seem like a new idea, and his McEvoy is a durable raconteur." --"Kirkus Review"

"Colfer presents a second glorious episode (after Plugged) in the violent, hilarious, and just plain bizarre life of Irish army vet and Jersey casino owner Dan McEvoy....noir devotees with a twisted sense of humor will eat it up." --"Library Journal"

"Incredible imagination won't suffice to solve this spectacular whodunit, a five-star story in the vein of Dave Barry that has more twists and turns than a California cloverleaf. Tell everyone you know to get SCREWED. Better still, buy a copy of it." --"Bookreporter.com"
