McFori Ink is delighted to announce the release of BAFTA nominated TV writer and former stand-up comedian Caimh McDonnell’s Christmas novella Bloody Christmas.

All proceeds from the novella, which was launched on 25th November, will go to the Peter McVerry Trust, an Irish housing and homeless charity committed to reducing homelessness and the harm caused by substance misuse and social disadvantage.

As a Dubliner, Caimh choose to support the charity because “I wanted to do something, in some small way, to help in the fight against homelessness that seems to be getting worse all around the world. I was incredibly impressed by the work that Peter McVerry Trust does, not only just addressing the problem, but also the deeper causes that can contribute to it.”

The fast-paced crime-thriller is set in Caimh’s home town and follows on from the first book in the internationally bestselling The Dublin Trilogy series A Man with One of Those Faces. It mixes darkly comic crime with a distinctively acerbic Irish wit.

Caimh McDonnell’s books have achieved best-selling status on Amazon in the US, UK & Ireland and Australia. He was recently shortlisted for the Amazon Kindle Storytelling award and his Dublin Trilogy and McGarry Stateside series have sold over 300,000 copies and been optioned for TV.

Bloody Christmas will be released as an e-book on the 25 November and it will be a limited-time release, available up until 31 December 2019. It is available from Amazon for £3.99/€3.99/$4.49.

About Bloody Christmas:

It’s Christmas Eve and DS Bunny McGarry is in the mood to celebrate – he’s back on active duty having successfully proven that throwing a senior officer off a building was an appropriate step to take in the course of an investigation. However, his festivities are interrupted when someone attempts to assassinate him while he’s trying to take a leak – is nothing sacred?

The thing is, the assassin isn’t all he initially appears, and Bunny soon finds himself in a race against time to trace a kidnapped child before the people who ordered the hit realise that he is considerably less dead than they had hoped.

Bunny is making a list but he’s only checking it once because time is of the essence and some people need a refresher in the meaning of Christmas.

Bloody Christmas is a limited edition standalone novella that will be available until December 31st. All proceeds will go to the Peter McVerry Trust, an Irish housing and homeless charity committed to reducing homelessness and the harm caused by substance misuse and social disadvantage. It is set just after A Man With One of Those Faces, book 1 of the bestselling Dublin Trilogy series that melds high-octane action with an acerbic Irish wit.
