Description
(Finalist for the 2009 Edgar Award for Best Novel) Even the best private eye needs more than a name to find a missing person, though "Patrick Hutton" is all the information Ed Loy gets from Father Vincent Tyrrell, the brother of racehorse trainer F.X. Tyrrell, in the third Irish noir thriller from Declan Hughes, the Shamus Award–winning author of The Wrong Kind of Blood and The Color of Blood. Still, Loy is not without luck, and a phone number found on an unidentified body sends him digging into the Tyrrells' family history. But there is more to this revered clan of horse breeders, traders, and gamblers than meets the eye—as confirmed by the death of two more people with ties to the Tyrrells on the eve of one of Ireland's grandest racing events—and Loy stakes his life to end a killer's master plan.

"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."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
