Plugs a gap,
This review is from: Plugged (Hardcover)
KIDS' writer Eoin Colfer made his bones (not to mention a few million quid) with the Artemis Fowl series of teen crime thrillers.
Now he's growing up fast...well, sort of. He was picked to pen a sequel to the Hitch-hikers Guide `trilogy' of the late great Douglas Adams, and did a fine job of it.
With Plugged he gets grittier still, following the ups-and-mostly-downs of nightclub bouncer Dan, who finds himself tangling with extremely nasty types from the New Jersey drug-dealing trade.
Colfer's humour keeps the ball rolling, bringing to mind past stars like Joseph Wambaugh.
A fine bit of fun for a long journey.
