Okay, I'm fibbing a little as I read this one a few days ago, but I've not had time to post anything about it here. I'm having a bit of an Irish binge for a few days, but Adrian McKinty's a relatively new author for me - having only read one other of his books (although I've got them all). This is one of those books that, to be perfectly frank, I had no idea what was going on, and didn't care a bit. Mad, bad and beautifully evocative.

I didn't want to go to America. I didn't want to work for Darkey White. I had my reasons. But I went.
