Product description

From Publishers Weekly

Starred Review. Hired by Father Vincent Tyrrell to find Patrick Hutton, a jockey missing for 10 years, Ed Loy quickly finds himself investigating not one but two grisly murders in playwright Hughes's stellar third novel to feature the Dublin PI (after 2007's The Color of Blood). At the same time, Loy must stay on his guard against members of the Halligan family, who blame him for the incarceration of one of their own. An innocent fling with the mysterious Miranda Hart leads Loy ever deeper into the heart of a complex drama that spans decades and involves several members of the powerful Tyrrell family. At least one murder turns out not to be what it seems. Beaten up, warned off and yet undaunted, Loy uncovers a horrible series of secrets, leading to a violent and labyrinthine conclusion at a famous Irish horse-racing festival. This intelligent, often brutal thriller will have readers' hearts racing from start to finish. (Mar.)

Review

'...Rising Irish crime star Declan Hughes turns his acerbic eye on the Irish horseracing scene'―Observer

To call Declan Hughes "a natural" is to engage in understatement. Here is a crime novel that's both deftly plotted and truly character-driven. Like Chandler's Los Angeles, Hughes's Dublin is brilliantly atmospheric. The dialogue crackles and the characters have a truly lived-in authenticity. A great read―Douglas Kennedy

This intelligent, often brutal thriller will have readers' hearts racing from start to finish.―Publishers Weekly starred review

PRAISE FOR DECLAN HUGHES:―*

PRAISE FOR THE DYING BREED**

Hughes is not afraid to take his references and run with them, he is not afraid to have a good time. Above all, he is not afraid of writing well―Anne Enright, Guardian

Hughes is an impressive talent―Irish Independent

As crisply written as his previous books, Hughes is definitely onto another winner―Dublin Evening Herald

A very fine writer―Sunday Telegraph

'Well-written and sharp'―Irish Sunday Independent --This text refers to the Audio Cassette edition.
