The Lemon Man is Patrick Callen, a bicycle-riding hitman with mild O.C.D. in Dublin, Ireland whose carefully ordered life is totally upended when he becomes the accidental caretaker of a baby boy. Now he's got to balance his daily to-do list of errands and murders-for-hire with his unexpected domesticity, which impacts him and his work in ways he never expected...and that could get him killed.

"What fun. Bruton's darkly funny Irish noir sparkles. If a hitman and a baby aren't the best pitch in ages, then I don't know what is." Linwood Barclay, New York Times bestselling author

"Distinctive and captivating, The Lemon Man's unique blend of action, humor, and intrigue make it a book you won't want to miss." Andrew Grant (aka Andrew Child), New York Times bestselling co-author of the Reacher series.

"A fine crime novel: at one moment offbeat, with a darkly funny Irish lilt, and the next moment hard and uncompromising." Garry Disher, three time Ned Kelly Award winning author of the Wyatt series.

"A fast-paced and gripping crime novel with a cynical and humorous perspective on modern day Dublin... and an oddly sympathetic but disturbing protagonist, a hired assassin, who turns out to be a living, breathing, shopping, cycling psychopath, a male Villanelle (Killing Eve)." Anthony J. Quinn, author of the Inspector Celcius Daly series.

"Featuring a hitman with heart - not to mention a bike, a man bun, and a baby he found on the job - The Lemon Man is wildly entertaining. With its cast of eccentric characters, richly-drawn Dublin setting, and breakneck pacing, this is a novel you won't soon forget." Tessa Wegert, author of Dead Wind.
