The Price of Blood: An Irish Novel of Suspense Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.
