The Big O hits the U.S.A.

It's been a while since I've written about Ireland, so I was pleased to learn from Crime Always Pays that the U.S. edition of The Big O arrives on bookstore shelves Sept. 22 and that author Declan Burke arrives shortly thereafter to build goodwill and talk up his wonderful second novel.

Detectives Beyond Borders called The Big O "A tour de fun from a high-spirited Irish novelist and blogger" and said that "the deliciously complicated plotting, the wry dialogue and the sympathy Burke engenders for his cast of characters made this one of the most fun and purely pleasurable reads I've had in a while."

U.S. readers, you're in for a treat.

Whoa, is that the US cover? It's fabulous. I do hope I don't learn it has evil twins out there, but the mix of type and image works terrifically well.

Ditto: Love that cover design.

The U.S. cover differs markedly from the Irish one, though the two share an obvious common design element.

You've seen the hot cover, now READ THE HIT BOOK!!!

I think I'll complement my Irish edition with a copy of the U.S. edition. This matched set will make a handsome addition to any home.
