Summary

The first time somebody tried to kill him was an accident. 

The second time was deliberate. 

Now Paul Mulchrone finds himself on the run with nobody to turn to except a nurse who has read one-too-many crime novels and a renegade copper with a penchant for violence. Together they must solve one of the most notorious crimes in Irish history.

Or else they’ll be history. 

A Man with One of Those Faces is the first book in Caimh McDonnell's critically acclaimed Dublin Trilogy series, which melds fast-paced action with a distinctly Irish acerbic wit.

Outstanding

First of all..I am a huge fan of the books. Genuinely funny but also plausible characters and situations, not something you always see in humorous stories. I loved the characters and so wanted the audio version to be as good.
Well..the choice of narrator, Mr Morgan C Jones is inspired. Clearly a man of a thousand voices, he brings each of the characters to life and of course the Irish accents serve to make the whole thing even more enjoyable.
In particular, Bunny is a real tour de force. Its consistently funny. but some scenes are downright hilarious...particularly the scene where the Solicitor gets a visit from a henchman.
Its crying out for Amazon or Netflix to make a TV series...can I suggest Brendan Gleeson for the part of Bunny McGarry.
Dont hesitate , buy this book...and the really good news.....the others books are coming to a set of ears near you soon.

Delightful book & brilliant narrator

I really enjoyed this audio book. The characters were unusual, the plot was good & there was plenty of excitement mixed with humour. I hope there are more books to follow.

The narrator was the best I have ever listened to. I shall also search for any other books he has narrated.

Bunny Rules

This was my first Caimh MaDonnell novel but it won't be my last as I look forward to listening to all the author's work. Thrilling and funny don't always go together well but in this novel the balance is nigh on perfect. The leads are okay but it is Bunny McGarry who steals the show and makes the series worth continuing with.

A Joy to listen to

I found myself not giving a damn about the plot, I just wanted more and more from these characters.

Lovely writing, funny and well paced. The narration was spot on.

I hope the other books in the series will be available on Audible soon.

Very funny and clever

Very good read. I would give this something like 4.7 if I could, but can’t quite give it 5 because I am not sure I would read it again. I will however be reading many more by Mr McDonnell very soon.

Good for a chuckle

Bought this as I've been listening to the stranger times books and thoroughly enjoyed them. Loved the narrators take on the characters. Couldn't help but feel sorry for the hapless Paul. Gave me a few belly laughs along the way. Definitely recommend and will be buying more from this author.

Beware...

I made the mistake of giving The Stranger Times a listen and so inadvertently started a Caimh McDonnell addiction.
I was forced to purchase and binge listen to that full series in quick succession (twice). Then, without another book in that series, the withdrawal set in, and I needed my fix. So I thought I would give another of Caimh's series a go. Unfortunately, this is another brilliantly written and well narrated edition. So here I go again, with book 2 purchased and about to give Alexa her "play" instruction.
If you haven't yet discovered Caimh McDonnell's work, you are in for a treat. The characters are entertaining, the plots are engaging and all delivered with plenty of mirth.

Powerful Craic

Admittedly I am a tough audiance on the comedy scene, but, McDonnell's dialogue, characters and story all combine at every turn to make me laugh. You can't let joy, once this rollercoaster starts - strap yourself in!!!
