9780061763588: The Price of Blood: An Irish Novel of Suspense (Ed Loy Novels)

Even the best private eye needs more than a name to find a missing person—but that's all the information Ed Loy gets from Father Vincent Tyrrell, brother of prominent racehorse trainer F. X. Tyrrell. Loy is not without luck, however, and a phone number inadvertently discovered on an unidentified body sends him digging deep into the Tyrrells' family history. But there is more to this revered clan of horse breeders, traders, and gamblers than meets the eye—a fact confirmed by the death of two more people with connections to the Tyrrells. On the eve of one of Ireland's most anticipated sporting events, Loy is betting his life in order to disrupt a twisted killer's master plan.

Deadly passions beget dark secrets in a chilling story that will have readers on edge throughout, as award-winning author Declan Hughes once again paints an arresting portrait of an Ireland not found in any guidebooks.

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
