Ed Loy has made some changes. He has moved into a flat in Dublin’s city centre, leaving the family home behind. Maybe now he can break free from the ghosts of his past – the drinking, the dirty deals, the sleazy underworld.
But when a 15-year-old murder case is reopened, Loy is hired by the victim’s daughter to investigate the suspects ignored by the first investigation: a rich property developer, an ex-IRA man and Loy’s least favourite sociopath, George Halligan. Loy has to watch his back: in the murky world into which he has fallen, he can’t tell which threats come from the IRA and which from the police protecting their old case.

I've thoroughly enjoyed previous Declan Huges books, but found this one hard-going. I'm not sure if it was the narrator or the story. There seemed too many characters and a bit too much violence and gore, and I found I didn't really care about many of the people. I love Ed Loy, and this is the second Ed Loy story I've listened to (The first was 'Bad Blood' which I recommend highly), but I simply couldn't get into this one. I listened through to the end, but it's probably going to be a while before I download another one by this author/narrator.
