Publisher's 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.

Oddball protagonist!

Old Gold is the first novel in what is now the three book Eoin Miller series set in the midlands of England. As a young man he went against his Gypsy heritage and joined the police. He quit the police to work for a drug gang. Eoin's estranged wife is now in the running for police commissioner while Eoin has sank into alcohol addiction. When a woman he picked up at a bar is killed in his bed while he is passed out, he sets out to solve this murder mystery.

Eoin is weak, cowardly and stupid to go with his alcoholism. He is, however, much less bad than any of the other characters in the novel. Overall Old Gold is an interesting and worthwhile suspense thriller with excellent narration. I will likely listen to the next novel in the Eoin Miller series.
