"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(R) 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).

Back cover copy

Dublin PI Ed Loy thought he had laid all his ghosts to rest. But when two young women go missing from a film set, he knows his past has caught up with him. Twenty years ago, three girls disappeared while Loy's longtime friend, film director Jack Donovan, was shooting a movie in Malibu. They were never found. Now Donovan's filming an Irish historical epic on location--and production grinds to a halt when two female cast members fail to show up to work. Fearing that Donovan or one of his close associates is responsible, Loy races to uncover the truth before a third girl vanishes--a hunt that's pulling him far from home, back to L.A., leaving a cunning killer free to strike at what's dearest to Ed Loy's heart.
