The night of my mother`s funeral, Linda Dawson cried on my shoulder, put her tongue in my mouth and asked me to find her husband. Now she was lying dead on her living room floor, and the howl of a police siren echoed through the surrounding hillsâ€¦`
Ed Loy hasn`t been back to Dublin for twenty years. But his mother is dead, and he has returned home to bury her. He soon realizes that the world waiting for him is very different from the one he left behind all those years ago.
`Tommy said you found people who were missing`, Linda Dawson tells him the evening of his mother`s funeral. Linda`s husband has disappeared. She doesn`t want the police involved. So reluctantly, Loy agrees to investigate.
And suddenly in this place where he grew up â€“ among the Georgian houses, Victorian castles, and modern villas of Castlehill â€“ Loy finds himself thrown into a world of organized crime, long-hidden secrets, corruption and violence. And murder.
