Fat Boy McMaster is a hopeless heavyweight boxer, who has somehow managed to become the champion of Ireland. His devious manager has set up a St Patrick's Day fight in New York against Mike Tyson, and he wants journalist Dan Starkey to write about it.
Once in New York, however, McMaster's wife is kidnapped, the Champ is chased all over town by gunmen, and there's the Big Fight to consider too...

"The funniest crime series around" (Daily Telegraph)
"Sometimes brutal, often blackly humorous and always terrific" (Observer)
Colin Bateman can't go wrong, especially when narrated by Adam Moore. Great story and engaging narration.
I love the narration and a lot of Bateman's dialogue - it can be hilarious and much better than the overall story.
I've listened and read a lot of his books - I'm a fan.
I really like Adam Moore's narration - it just sounds 'right'.
Not in the sense of a follow-up story connected to this as I didn't think this was one of his best.
I didn't think this story was great, but it's still worth a listen as there are some gems in there. My favourite one to listen to so far has been 'I predict a riot' which just made me laugh out loud on many occasions. I also really liked Driving Big Davie'
The proof is in the pudding!
