9780060825515: The Price of Blood: An Irish Novel of Suspense (Ed Loy Novels)

What's in a name? Apparently everything for Ed Loy, because that's the only information Father Vincent Tyrrell, brother of prominent racehorse trainer F. X. Tyrrell, offers when he asks for Ed's help in finding a missing person. Even the best private eye needs more than just a name, but hard times and a dwindling bank account make it difficult for Loy to say no.

He is not without luck, however. While working another case, Loy discovers a phone number that seems linked to F.X. found on an unidentified body. Thinking it more than a coincidence, he begins digging into the history of the Tyrrells—a history consumed with trading and dealing, gambling and horse breeding—and soon realizes there is more to the family than meets the eye, a suspicion confirmed when two more people with connections to the Tyrrells are killed.

On the eve of one of Ireland's most anticipated sporting events, the four-day Leopardstown Race-course Christmas Festival, all bets are off as Loy pursues a twisted killer on the final leg of a reckless master plan.

In The Price of Blood, Declan Hughes once again paints an arresting portrait of an Ireland not found in any guidebooks. Deadly passions beget dark secrets in a chilling story that will have readers on edge right up to its shocking conclusion.

About the Author:

An award-winning playwright and screenwriter, Declan Hughes is cofounder and former artistic director of Rough Magic Theatre Company. He was Writer-in-Association with the Abbey Theatre and lives in Dublin with his wife and two daughters.

From AudioFile:

The third installment in the series about Dublin investigator Ed Loy has the complexity and depth to stand on its own. Rough and street savvy, Loy is hired by a priest to find Patrick Hutton, a jockey who disappeared amid questionable circumstances ten years earlier. Narrator Stanley Townsend adds to Loy's dark disposition with a natural delivery of raw language and Loy's patchy awareness of alcohol-fueled fights. The various Irish and English voices are easily distinguishable, thanks to Townsend's deft reading. Townsend's skill is well employed for the extended first-person points of view of several characters, especially in the closing scene in which the shocking secrets of a powerful family are revealed. N.M.C. AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
