In the tradition of Elmore Leonard and Carl Hiaasen, Plugged tells the story of Daniel McEvoy, an Irish bouncer at a seedy New Jersey club. Daniel has a problem. Well, he has several, but the worst is that the girl he loves was just murdered. Then more people around him start dying--and not of natural causes. Suddenly Daniel's got the mob, cops, and an unstable lovesick neighbor after him, and the only clue points towards the crooked doctor who gave him hair implants before vanishing into thin air. Luckily--or perhaps unluckily--he has the help of a volatile detective, a permanently hungover army psychologist, and a mischievous ghost.
In Plugged, Colfer, beloved by millions for his Artemis Fowl series, has written a hilarious tour de force thriller of head-spinning plot twists, compulsive in the tradition of Carl Hiaasen's best work--a "pitch-perfect comic noir" (Publishers Weekly, starred review). Complete with the best banter this side of Elmore Leonard's Detroit, Plugged will leave you shocked, awed, and wanting more.
Publishers Weekly Review

I was very disappointed with this book. I expected more since the author's adolescent fiction is so addicting.
The main character is likable, but the plot is weak and frankly, boring.
Colfer forays into adult mystery in this story with an interesting new character. Not a bad read but not his best; keeps his standard wry humor, which I enjoyed. 3.5 stars
