9780099549154: City of Bohane

Shortlisted for the 2011 Costa First Novel Award and winner of the Authors' Club Best First Novel Award - this is a cool, comic, violent and lyrical debut novel from one of Ireland's most talented new writers.

The once-great city of Bohane on the west coast of Ireland is on its knees, infested by vice and split along tribal lines. There are still some posh parts of town, but it is in the slums and backstreets of Smoketown, the tower blocks of the Northside Rises and the eerie bogs of Big Nothin' that the city really lives.
        For years, Bohane has been in the cool grip of Logan Hartnett, the dapper godfather of the Hartnett Fancy gang. But there's trouble in the air. But now they say his old nemesis is back in town; his trusted henchmen are getting ambitious; and there's trouble in the air.
