A woman is found dead in a local businessman’s holiday let. Detectives uncover some shady dealings. But did he kill her?
The charm of a West of Ireland holiday home is somewhat tarnished when a woman’s body is found in the property. There are few clues as to her identity. However, in her hand is found a small solid-gold ingot.
Galway-based DI Maureen Lyons is drawn out to the sticks to take on the case. Suspicion naturally falls on the property’s owner who runs a large discount store, lives beyond his means, and has an over-zealous interest in the ladies.
But the team find it difficult to establish a motive and it is only when the investigation follows the money that a picture begins to emerge. This is one of corruption that spreads across Europe, from Ireland, through Holland, all the way to Lithuania and beyond.
With the help of a Dutch inspector, Lyons will piece together an elaborate criminal scheme worth millions. But it will also bring her up against individuals who kill at the drop of a hat to further their aims.
This is the seventh murder mystery featuring detectives Hays and Lyons set in the Galway region of Ireland. It can be enjoyed entirely as a standalone, but why not check out the other books in the series?
