BOOK REVIEW: THE WRONG KIND OF BLOOD
Private detective Ed Loy has been living in Los Angeles now for many years. He returned to Dublin to attend his mother's funeral. He had no idea what was in store for him upon his return!
Linda Dawson, an old classmate, pleaded with Loy to help find her missing husband. She didn't seem too upset by his disappearance considering the fact that she was kissing Loy at the same time she was asking for his help. Ed agrees to help with the investigation.
As Loy starts his investigation, he discovers many interesting things. He finds a picture of his father on Loy's boat. Why was his father's picture there? Loy also finds a corpse in the foundations of the local town hall.
As the investigation continues Loy soon finds out that he is in much danger. Other murders start to occur and there are problems with organized crime.
What happens as Ed Loy continues his search?
This is an intriguing novel. As I started to read this book, I had a feeling as to what was about to happen but all the same the author still draws the reader into the story. There are many subplots and an abundance of violence but the author does an excellent job of keeping the reader attuned to the heart of the novel. The author moves the story at a fast pace and does an excellent job with the character descriptions. There are also many wonderful descriptions about Dublin that will make the reader feel they are right there. This is Declan Hughes' debut novel and it is highly recommended.
