WELCOME! is the first tale in the humorous, rollicking international thriller series of Dublin tales featuring dashing detective Jack “Dildo” Dillon by Mike Faricy. Jack’s no less libidinous than Faricy’s popular Dev Haskell, but he’s a bit more mature—and way better with a gun. Think action-packed: Marshal Dillon Rides Into Dublin. Jack’s a U.S. Marshal abroad, escorting a fugitive named Daniel Ackerman and having a wonderful time—at first. All goes smoothly, and he’s had a splendid tour of the fair city in the company of Garda (Officer) Ann Dumphy—the lovely colleen assigned to mind him—until the transfer of the prisoner at the airport. It seems Ackerman’s Russian partner would prefer that Ackerman not stand trial in the U.S., and sends a team of his thugs to prevent it.
