A comical homage to a city ablaze with recreational rioting where everyone’s fired up with their own twisted agenda. Tommy Bridge, a cop who’s known hard times, now armed with a yoga mat, a Glock and his own - slightly suspect - moral code, is out to seek revenge. 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. Grace Doran, investigative journalist with conflicted morals, is good at her job but is she out to get more than the truth behind the events?
"A unique voice in contemporary Irish fiction."
"... authentic street dialogue and surprising black humour."
"Gerard Brennan is a master of gritty violence."
"The real deal."
The first title from No Alibis Press, Gerard Brennan's novel Disorder (2018) is "a coal-black comedy caper in which everyone seems to be feeding off the manic energy generated by the potential for violence that seems stitched into every page." (Declan Burke, The Irish Times)
