Grace O’Malley, recently promoted head of the Galway Garda murder squad, has a new murder case on her hands. A betting shop employee has been found shot dead. The bookmaker’s owner is Ronan Coyne, twin brother of Grace’s closest colleague Rory. And that’s only the beginning of her troubles. Because naturally Rory is immediately considered biased and taken off the case. So Grace is now compelled to work with Kevin Day, a notoriously difficult character. But of course Rory can’t keep his nose out of the case – after all, his family is at the centre of it. Their investigations take them into the innermost circles of the Irish gambling scene, the betting business and the race course that hosts the most prestigious event in Ireland’s racing calendar – the Galway Races.
