Publication: A MAN WITH ONE OF THOSE FACES by Caimh McDonnell

Stand-up comedian and scriptwriter Caimh McDonnell published his debut novel, A MAN WITH ONE OF THOSE FACES (McFori Ink), on August 27th. Quoth the blurb elves:
A darkly comic Irish crime thriller.
  The first time somebody tried to kill him was an accident.
  The second time was deliberate.
  Now Paul Mulchrone finds himself on the run with nobody to turn to except a nurse who has read one too many crime novels and a renegade copper with a penchant for violence. Together they must solve one of the most notorious crimes in Irish history … or else they’ll be history.
