No Alibis Event -- Connolly and Hughes

Don't forget!

John Connolly & Declan HughesFriday 9th May at 6:30PM

No Alibis Bookstore are very happy to invite you to an evening with two of Ireland's finest crime writers, John Connolly and Declan Hughes, to celebrate the launch of their new novels, on Friday 9th May at 6:30PM.

Join us as we host the launch of John Connolly's latest Charlie "Bird" Parker novel, THE REAPERS and Declan Hughes' latest Ed Loy novel, THE DYING BREED.


They are the Reapers, the elite among killers. Men so terrifying that their names are mentioned only in whispers. The assassin Louis is one of them. But now Louis, and his partner, Angel, are themselves targets. And there is no shortage of suspects. A wealthy recluse sends them north to a town that no longer exists on a map. A town ruled by a man with very personal reasons for wanting Louis's blood spilt. There they find themselves trapped, isolated, and at the mercy of a killer feared above all others: the assassin of assassins, Bliss. Thanks to former detective Charlie Parker, help is on its way. But can Angel and Louis stay alive long enough for it to reach them?


Even the best private eye needs more than a name to find a missing person, but that's all that Father Vincent Tyrrell, the brother of prominent racehorse trainer FX Tyrrell, will offer Loy when he comes to him for help. A dwindling bank account convinces Loy to delve into the deadly underworld of horse racing, but fortune soon smiles on him: while working another case, he discovers a phone number linked to FX on a badly beaten body left at an illegal dump. Loy's been around long enough to know that there's more to the Tyrrell family than meets the eye -- and then a third body appears. At Christmastime, on the eve of one of Ireland's most anticipated racing events, the intrepid investigator bets his life on a longshot: finding answers in a shady network of trading and dealing, gambling and breeding.

This event is likely to be popular, with spaces filling up fast. To guarantee a spot, please contact David, by phoning 9031 9607 or by dropping him an email to reserve your place.

fling a few fucks into 'em and get them to do the double act in Milton Keynes - either Waterstones or Borders will be fine

I'll probably not "fling" anything, but I'll certainly suggest an extended tour. How's that for ye?
