​El Niño is the exciting debut novel from Mayo man, Mick Donnellan. Slick, stylish and always entertaining, the story is a rollercoaster
of drama and tension that hasn’t been seen in Irish fiction for a very long time. Charlie is our protagonist, the pick pocket that steals El Nino’s wallet and then falls in love with her. She’s the wild femme fatale, beautiful; enigmatic and seductive. Her
father named her El Niño because the night she was born there was a storm, and he said it signified the way she was to live her life. And right he was. She rocks Charlie’s world with her smoky wiles and drinking ways and her tough chick ideals. This is Noir
at its best. Dark and edgy with crisp fresh dialogue and a plot that engages the reader from the first line and keeps him up all night – right through to it’s powerful finish.

Mokusatsu (Sequel to El Niño) by Mick Donnellan https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/1793237638/ref=cm_sw_r_tw_dp_U_x_8IcZEbFDC8E37


Mokusatsu is the long awaited sequel to Novelist Mick Donnellan’s first book El Niño. Despite
the Japanese name, Mokusatsu is set in Ireland – and a significant part of the story is set in Galway and Mayo. Charlie,
the protagonist, is out on bail and back on the sauce. Still devastated over the events of El Niño, he drinks to kill the pain and robs all he can to feel alive. But the past won’t give him peace. The police want him in jail. Kramer’s old
crew have a price on his head, and his new employer has big plans to carve out his own niche in the criminal underworld — with Charlie at the helm.
Roped into a series of audacious heists and ingenious schemes, he finds himself involved with illegal diesel in Westmeath, stolen cash machines in Mayo and violent debt collection in Galway. Couple that with his regular income of stealing
wallets and robbing shops and you have a cyclone of a man roaring down a path to destruction. And bringing everybody with him.
And then there’s Karena. The beautiful girl that may save him — but maybe she should know better?
At times dark, others touching, and often comic, Mokusatsu is a fiction readers feast of Irish Crime Writing.
