Ross O'Carroll-Kelly had it all - nice gaff, cool car, plenty of dosh, a stake in Dublin's trendiest nightspot and the body of a Calvin Klein underwear model. Little did he know that his comeuppance was about to arrive. And then one night in the Ice Bar...
"Perhaps there is something else in here among the gags; something about modern Ireland, its vanity, its obsession with surface detail and material wealth. Maybe in laughing at Ross we are laughing at ourselves… Gloriously, uproariously funny."
"There are times, when Howard is at his best, when this reads rather like Martin Amis's 'Money'… Certainly the most interesting of the Ross novels."
"Women of Ireland, rejoice. Ross O'Carroll-Kelly is back."
"The jokes are still fresh and Howard manages to bring more depth to the Ross universe."
