"Plugged" a noir crime novel by Eoin...

Postby Matt » Thu Jan 13, 2011 11:53 am

In the new upcoming AFC / EC interview you'll hear a tiny snippet of information and a few flashes of the cover of Eoin's new upcoming noir crime novel "Plugged" which is due for release fairly soon!

This ISN'T the cover shown in the video though... so we shall see!

Already made a topic for this, lol :p But as you're the one closer to Eoin, (you know him in Rl, right?) we should use this topic. Here's my info:

So, in an interview with Eoin Colfer (taken by Matt of AF Confidential)! Mr. Colfer said that he's written an adult crime book, called Plugged. There wasn't really much information about it, but now some things have been said:

"Plugged is set in New York and New Jersey, and the main character is an Irish man "who lives just this side of the law but gets embroiled in things outside of the law", Donaldson said.'' (http://www.thebookseller.com/news/12062 ... e.html.rss)

''Dan, an Irishman who’s ended up in New Jersey, finds himself embroiled in a world of murder, kidnapping and corrupt cops.

Dan works as a bouncer in a seedy club, half in love with hostess Connie. When Connie is murdered on the premises, a vengeful Dan finds himself embroiled in an increasingly deadly sequence of events in which his doctor friend Zeb goes mysteriously missing, a cop-killing female cop becomes his only ally, and he makes an enemy of ruthless drug-dealer Mike Madden. Written with the warmth and wit that make the Artemis Fowl novels so irresistible, though with additional torture and violence, PLUGGED is a brilliant crime debut from a naturally gifted writer with a huge fanbase.''
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Plugged-Eoin-Co ... 0755379985)

It'll be coming out in May 2011, which is late! It's already written!

What do you think of the book?


I, personally, can't wait for it. I'm really surprised because i wrote a story about an Irish detective named Dan (last name Hamilton) once, so i was happy Eoin used the same name for his protagonist in Ireland I did.
GREETINGS!!

I'm excited about this book. I like a good crime books, yet I don't read much of them, since I'm a very picky reader, but I have a feeling that this will be on my favorites list.

oooh . . . an Irishman of questionable rep, a female cop, a doctor friend . . . this is beginning to sound very familiar lol I can't WAIT for this to come out! :D Maybe I'll just do some name switching in my head and make Dan's name start with A . . . Although I can't really picture Artemis working as a bouncer at a seedy nightclub. LOL Butler, maybe. Arty? Def not.

Hope it's ok that I'm necroposting here.

I saw this in the bookshop today and bought it; and now just finished reading it. It seemed rather coarse (but fitting) and the action flowed in much the same style as the Artemis Fowl books :).

I'm slowly working my way through it. I have to say, I wasn't expecting so much profanity.
