'The authority of a writer who has found his stride: it's energetic, pacy and vivid' (The Times)
'Muscular writing, a smart line in self-deprecating humour, terrific dialogue and an engrossing portrayal of the sights and sounds of Dublin noir' (Marcel Berlins, The Times)
'This is an extremely dark book, pushing the limits in terms of violence and morality' (Sunday Times)
'Loy is a winning combination of caustic cynicism and romantic idealism ... [Hughes] works with heavy resonant imagery [and] gives the reader an ending which confounds the expectations of the genre ... which is all the more satisfying for it' (Irish Times)
'Declan Hughes has an unparalled grip on the parallel uiniverses of contemporary Dublin, and his Ed Loy series just keeps getting better ... this volume has an elegiac post-Tiger, post-Troubles feel - which just turns Hughes's stylish noir an even darker shade of black' (The Irish Times)
'A tense, well-written thriller, very effective at conveying the undercurrent of danger to Ed's investigations. It weaves together the different threads of the story expertly, and every word counts' (Eurocrime)
'Seems like Declan Hughes has scored another winner' (Eurocrime)
'Ever-improving series ... Dublin's answer to Ian Rankin's Edinburgh-set Rebus books ... Hughes has always been a fine writer ... All the Dead Voices sees him up his game with impressive results ... gripping, beautifully written and occasionally wise' (London Lite)
'A gritty and realistic look at modern Ireland ... the fantastic thing about this book is the characters; they are so clearly depicted and authentic, you genuinely feel as if you have entered the gang-land Ireland ... highly recommended!' (RTE Guide)
'What lifts it all out of the ordinary is Hughes' self-awareness ... there are plenty of highlights ... an enjoyable and satisfying read' (Sunday Tribune)

Ed Loy, Hughes' private investigator, has appeared in three other novels. He returned to Ireland after twenty years in America to bury his mother and stayed around. In ALL THE DEAD VOICES he is hired to find the murderer of Anne Fogarty's father, a revenue inspector who was killed fifteen years ago, and to investigate the death of a rising soccer star. Several ex-IRA men and an Irish mobster are suspects in both murders.
But in the background of the story is another incident that occurred in 1980, other brutal unnecessary murders. After you finish the book, you'll remember the dead voices of these victims. They will haunt you!
