Description
"Ed Loy is...more than worthy of a place among the great creations of Chandler and Hammett. Hughes is simply the best Irish crime novelist of his generation."

--John Connolly

Shamus Award winner and Edgar#65533; Award nominee Declan Hughes does for Dublin what Dennis Lehane does for his native Boston. In City of Lost Girls, "Ireland's Ross MacDonald" (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel) transports his private investigator, Ed Loy, from the Emerald Isle to the mean streets of Los Angeles and into the sordid heart of Hollywood in search of three young missing woman. City of Lost Girls is unrelentingly exciting and refreshingly intelligent--another shining example of how Hughes "demonstrates that the private detective novel can be vital, modern, and relevant in the right hands" (Laura Lippman).
