I've read all of Eoin Colfers books and there all excelent. I love them and this ones no exception. I think the Sharkey's are really funny! And April's barking mad. All Colfers books are totally different and this one is writen just like those grim New York seedy crime stories but set in an Irish town. It's only just out and i'm already waiting for the next one! Please let there be a next one!
