About the book:

Remember those people that destroyed the economy and then cruised off on their yachts? Well guess what – someone is killing them.

Dublin is in the middle of a heat wave and tempers are running high. The Celtic Tiger is well and truly dead, activists have taken over the headquarters of a failed bank, the trial of three unscrupulous property developers teeters on the brink of collapse, and in the midst of all this, along comes a mysterious organisation hell-bent on exacting bloody vengeance in the name of the little…

The novel features three of the protagonists from the first novel: the rather hapless Paul Mulchrone, nurse Brigit Conroy and Bunny McGarry. Following their escapades solving the Rapunzel case, they have decided to set up in business as a private investigation agency. There is just one problem – well more than one actually. Brigit won’t speak to Paul following a drunken incident, Bunny has disappeared off the face of the earth and they can’t get a licence to run the agency without him. The trial of three businessmen has just collapsed, swiftly followed by some rather unpleasantmurders and it looks like some underground organisation…
