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.

(The second book in the Ed Loy series)

Feb 13, 2012

Slightly overcooked `Dublin Noir' in which P.I. protagonist Ed Loy finds himself caught in the coils of a spectacularly dysfunctional family. The corpses pile up in a convoluted plot best consumed in big slices to lessen the possibility of losing track of who's who. A mix of Raymond Chandler and Ken Bruen with a hint of James Joyce..
