Product description


'Excellent dark, disturbing and very compelling, with a hard literary edge that served the tale and the characters within extremely well.' --Liz Wilkins

'Set in an almost futuristic, dystopian Glasgow, The Father s protagonist Sean Rooney is a messed up alcoholic shrink who is dragged into a murder investigation by his ex-wife, DCI Kaminski. Broody and contrarian, Rooney is the sort of person who would cut off his face to spite his nose and makes Tony Black s Gus Dury look like Dr Phil. The mixture of introspective noir and action movie is a tricky balancing act but one that Tom O. Keenan pulls-off and makes The Father a very interesting read indeed.' --Paul D. Brazil

'This is a powerful, well written story that doesn t shy away from facing some difficult issues.' --K. Nixon
