The Color of Bloodby Declan Hughes
Synopses & Reviews
A reputable dentist from a venerable medical family, Shane Howard wants Loy to find his lost daughter after receiving a set of photographs featuring nineteen-year-old Emily in provocative poses. But a simple missing persons case rapidly devolves into something even more sordid and grisly when two of the players are savagely slain. And it's only the beginning.
The Howard family is not what it seems. Beneath a veneer of wealth and respectability is a dark history of corruption and rot and secrets best left unearthed. By entering the Howards' vicious circle, Loy may find himself stained with the most corrosive and lethal type of blood—the kind that even death cannot eradicate.
In this follow-up to "The Wrong Kind of Blood," the dark realities of Dublin's streets converge with the lethal secrets of the past in a sinister and graphic thriller that follows private investigator Ed Loy, who searches for a killer among a well-known Irish family of doctors.
