Summary

When gangland detective and former cop Eoin Miller wakes up to realize his almost-one-night stand has gone cold as a corpse in his bed, his gypsy heritage screams for him to do the easy thing and run. Having abandoned his morals, ambitions, and relationships for a life of alcohol, denial, and dirty work for local crime bosses, escape seems to be the only option left. But Eoin is surprised by a compulsion to root out his unknown enemies and fight for survival.

All too soon, he finds himself caught in the crossfire between nearly every faction in town: rival crime lords, drug dealers, politicians, cops - even his estranged wife has a card in play. His quest to uncover the truth - and prove his innocence - resurfaces deep pains, old scars, and shattered relationships that threaten to bury him under regret. That is, if the killer doesn’t bury him first.

Old Gold. By Jay Stringer. 1st book in series.

Where does Old Gold rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

As this book Old Gold by Jay Stringer is the first Audio book I have listened to (my trial month with Kindle Unlimited) I think it was excellent. A good narration with a variable choice of speed. A very good thriller detective story which kept me guessing until it was revealed who the killer was, right near the end of the book.Now I want the second book, titled, Runaway Town.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I enjoyed all the characters as they all seemed plausible.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

Not telling as it might be a spoiler.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

It was all so good I can't choose one.

Any additional comments?

A very satisfying read or listening. I must get the rest of this series.
