"Sunburnt" by M.D. Keating

“Sunburnt” (ISBN 1460973658) by M. D. Keating, tells the story of an unemployed alcoholic writer who is unwittingly drawn into a dangerous world of corruption, greed, drugs, arms and war.

Mickey Murphy, an unemployed alcoholic writer coping with the death of his father, is drawn into a scandal of epic proportions when his estranged childhood best friend, now a very successful offshore banker, disappears with billions of dollars that don’t belong to him. Readers will follow this unlikely hero through a collage of rogue characters into a dangerous world of corruption, greed, drugs, arms and war.

The author’s passion for storytelling derives from both his literary family and his lifelong love of books and movies. Keating explains “I have loved books and movies all of my life – what would be better than to combine the two, that‘s why ‘Sunburnt’ is a hybrid.” The story’s fast pace and unique style and format create a very different reading experience.

The story has garnered critical acclaim from the book review community. “Keating is a talented screenwriter, with each scene expertly paced, punctuated and stocked with colorful characters, piquant dialogue and a judicious mix of drama and comic relief.”—Kirkus Reviews

“The story line is boom-bang script-worthy. It is the sort of action-drama narrative that Hollywood loves.”—ForeWord Clarion Reviews

“Sunburnt” is available for sale online at and other channels.
