Ed Loy hasn't been back to Dublin for 20 years. Now his mother is dead, and he has returned home to bury her. He soon realises that the world waiting for him is very different from the one he left behind all those years ago. An old classmate, Linda Dawson, pleads with him to find her missing husband, Peter. She doesn't want the police involved.

When Loy finds an old photograph of his long missing father on Peter Dawson's boat, and a corpse is discovered in the foundations of the local town hall, things begin to get personal. Suddenly, he finds himself thrown into a world of organised crime, long-hidden secrets, corruption, violence...and murder. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " What is with "novels" that are screenplays with a bit of prose appended? It's A rollicking yarn with some half interesting characters, but it's mostly predictable with too many conincidences and conveniences. Saved by some insightful humour and a half interesting plot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ben | 1/13/2014

    " Truly written with an Irishman's built in sense of guilt, glee, and more guilt. Depressing yet a good book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ellen Keim | 1/2/2014

    " I really like the way the author paints a picture of contemporary Ireland throughout his books. This is the second one I've read. I didn't give the book more than three stars because the mystery wasn't that interesting to me. I did like the main character who is a private detective with a penchant for getting in trouble. (Sound familiar?) Good writing and an easy read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kent Disch | 12/31/2013

    " Beautifully written, complex and engaging...recommend to anyone who likes mystery, good writing and good stroryline. "

    " I loved this. It was the perfect vacation book and it kept me engaged and guessing which is a touch thing to do these days. Now my biggest quandary is whether to start yet another mystery series.. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jane | 8/20/2013

    " I've read a lot of books by Irish authors and a lot of books set in Ireland, but I think this is the first mystery I've read that takes place there. I will read more by Mr. Hughes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe | 8/5/2013

    " Excellent debut novel by Irish Author, gritty, witty & very good characterisation. Really enjoyed it and this promises to be an excellent series featuring the P.I Ed Loy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pam | 5/30/2013

    " Great book, lots of twists and turns. Corruption, deceit, affairs, who's your mama and all that good stuff. This is my second Declan Hughes book and I really enjoy his style of writing Crime Fiction. If you like this type of book, I would recommend. "

    " it's thrilling and gets you excited at some point, but eventually you might get bored but don't because the ending is unexpected :) "

    " Average mystery set in Dublin; first in a series "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Barbara | 2/10/2012

    " Too grim and convoluted for a beach read. Abandoning. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark Ellis | 12/27/2011

    " Excellent Chandleresque private eye story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tory Wagner | 8/3/2011

    " An O.K. Irish mystery. I had a hard time getting into it. Not sure I can really identify with the main character, a PI who returned to his native Ireland from L.A. to attend his mother's funeral. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matt Hamilton | 4/10/2011

    " An Irish crime book of two halves. Enjoyed the atmospheric build up in the first part but as the plot wound back and through and under itself, the whole feel and atmosphere of the book suffered a little. Enjoyable but not as much so as first appeared. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jane | 4/4/2011

    " It's set in Ireland. Liked that. It's a thriller/ suspense, liked that!
    Otherwise it wasn't the best I've read.
    But good.
    "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robin | 2/9/2010

    " While not stretching the P.I. genre in anyway it was still a good read. Decent main character. Would pick up another in the series if I came across it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lori | 12/21/2008

    " Entirely too dreary and convoluted.

    To be fair, I actually got this one for Tom to read, and tried to read it myself when I went through everything else in the book bag.

    But he couldn't finish it, either. "
