9780006498032: Maid of the Mist

New novel from the bestselling author of Divorcing Jack and Empire State.

Nothing much ever happens in Niagara Falls. It is a sleepy town full of honeymooners and tourists, and that’s how Inspector Frank Corrigan likes it. He saw enough trouble as a cop in Northern Ireland. Now he’s happy dealing with parking offences and the odd drunk, although since his wife has left him and taken their daughter, ‘happy’ may not quite be the word.

But then a reincarnated Native American princess by the name of Lelewala canoes over the Falls and survives. Or so she says. And Frank falls in love. And finds himself confronting the greatest terrorist of the age at an international gathering of drug dealers. And then the music starts…

Funny, moving, crazy, dark and thought-provoking, this is Bateman at his brilliant best.

Review:

Divorcing Jack:
‘As sharp as a pint of snake-bite… Richly paranoid and very funny’
Sunday Times

‘Fast-paced, very black and very funny. Roddy Doyle meets Carl Hiaasen’
Independent on Sunday
Of Wee Sweetie Mice and Men:
‘Fast, furious, riotously funny, and at the end, never a dry eye in the house’

Empire State:
‘Bateman on epic form in gloriously over-the-top saga’

From the Back Cover:

Nothing much happens in Niagara Falls. It's a sleepy Canadian town full of honeymooners and tourists, and that's how inspector Frank Corrigan likes it. He saw enough trouble as a cop in Northern Ireland and now he's happy dealing with parking offences and the odd drunk, although since his wife left him and took their daughter, 'happy' may be not quite the word.

But then a reincarnated Native American princess by the name of Lelewala canoes over the Falls – and survives. Or so she says. And Frank falls in love. And finds himself confronting the greatest terrorist of the age at an international gathering of drug dealers.

And that's before the music starts…
