The Lammisters by Declan Burke

The Lammisters cover

'This bourbon-smooth riot of jazz-age excess, high satire and Wodehouse flamboyance is a pitch-perfect bullseye of comic brilliance.' Irish Independent Books of the Year 2019

'This rapid-fire novel deserves a place on any bookshelf that grants asylum to PG Wodehouse, Flann O'Brien or Kyril Bonfiglioli.' Eoin Colfer, Guardian Best Books of the Year 2019

'The funniest book of the year.' Sunday Independent

'Declan Burke is one funny bastard. With The Lammisters, he has presented us not alone with a book full of bootleggers, starlets, pirates, movie moguls and knaves in a Damon Runyon/Blackadder mash-up, but he also conducts a forensic analysis on the anatomy of a story, showing a healthy and justified contempt for scribblers. Ultimately, an enjoyable jape from first to last.’ Liz Nugent, Unravelling Oliver, Lying in Wait, Skin Deep

'Never mind arguments about crime fiction and genre. Declan Burke is his own genre. The Lammisters dazzles, beguiles and transcends. Virtuoso from start to finish.' Eoin McNamee, The Vogue

Clark Wallace, criminal Kingpin and riot choreographer is on the rampage. Jimmy McAuley, a stoned student who wanders into the wrong place at the wrong time ends up going viral.
