All the Dead Voices

All the Dead Voices Review

“With All the Dead Voices, Declan Hughes once again demonstrates that the private detective novel can be vital, modern and relevant in the right hands.”
—Laura Lippman, New York Times bestselling author of Life Sentences

 

Author Declan Hughes has already won a Shamus Award—and has been nominated for a CWA New Blood Dagger, a Macavity, and an Edgar® Award—for his internationally bestselling series featuring Irish private investigator Ed Loy. Hughes’s remarkable thriller All the Dead Voices should dispel any doubts (if there were any) that he truly belongs in upper ranks of crime fiction writers—alongside John Connolly, Ian Rankin, Peter Robinson, Michael Connelly, Walter Mosley, and Dennis Lehane. Set in modern-day Dublin, Ireland, and rich in suspense and atmosphere, All the Dead Voices sends a message loud and clear that Declan Hughes is a literary force to be reckoned with!

    Many years ago, I was introduced to Ed Hoy in Declan Hughes' debut novel "The Wrong Color of Blood". Hoy immediately became one of my favorite male protagonists in the thriller genre. Hoy is a fallibl...

    I tried very hard to like this (and there is a lot to like) but on reflection even 3 stars is a bit generous, more like 2.5. The positives first - Ed Loy is a credible, three dimensional central figur...

    The first title without "blood" in it and there was a lot of blood spilled in this one, including that of Ed Loy. I think this is the best of the four I've read so far. Ed is hired by a woman to inves...

    Irish ghosts of a violent past...heroes or victims? Make no mistake. This is an Irish crime novel written by a very Irish author. It's set in contemporary Dublin about the time the Celtic Tiger bears ...
