Bad Faith!

Rated 5.00/5 based on 4 reviews
A huge lottery win is guaranteed to create a buzz in a small Irish village like Ceanngoorley.

Will the devious Father O'Hoora prove to be the real winner, or will his grand plans be thwarted by a vengeful bishop and a mysterious American stranger?

About Mike O'Connor

Mike O'Connor is an Irish author of boundary-pushing erotic fiction and knife sharp humor. While he has read and respects the work of John B Keane, Roddy Doyle, Oscar Wilde and other giants of Irish literature, Mike likes to think that he is carving his own particular path to something approaching greatness. Should he fail, he would still like to sell lots of books and make loads of money. At least he's honest!

Review by: Wade McMahan on July 11, 2010 :
"Bad Faith!" offers an intensely humorous, irreverent depiction of Irish culture, more particularly, the Irish clergy. Mike O’Conner has come up with a real winner with this one by providing readers with a here-to-for unopened window into Irish daily life - whether he actually intended to do so, or not. After reading his story, I'll never look at my ancestral homeland the same way again! Funny, funny, funny! I have to agree with Michael McShane, “Bad Faith” rates Five Stars from beginning to end.

Review by: Michael P. McShane on May 04, 2010 :
Finding this book was like stumbling upon pure gold. I want to be Mike O'Connor's literary agent. This book should make millions. From the setting (Ireland), to the characters (clerical/outlandish and irreverent), to the names (Bishop, Patrick St. Patrick: butler, William Yates: proto-typical American, A.C. Deasey: Italian Cardinals, Luigi Pizzeria and Pepperoni Botticelli: patron saint, Saint Delia the Dyslexic), to the story's common thread (the frenetic and oft-times hilarious scheming of an entrepreneurial and quite randy parish priest), this story moves at breakneck speed via some of the most well-crafted dialogue ever put to a page. The only people who will not enjoy the story are those who can neither read nor laugh; all others beware. If you start this book be sure your calendar is clear for the couple hours it will take to complete it, as you will be riveted to its every word. Congratulations, Mr. O'Connor, well done, well done indeed. Exercise your dominant hand, sir. You'll need the strength for all the autographs you'll be signing.
