Set in Glasgow, The Father is the critically acclaimed debut novel of Tom O Keenan and the first in a series of crime thrillers featuring troubled forensic profiler Sean Rooney. The Father was shortlisted for the CWA Debut Dagger in 2014.
Mental illness, alcohol abuse, and the tediom of pursuing psychopathic killers, leave Sean Rooney a pathetic man, a failed forensic profiler, a bit of a loser, and definitely retried. DCI Jacqueline Kaminski has other ideas. Faced with a multiple murder - and some headless corpses - she needs Rooney back on the case.
Born and bred in Hamilton, Tom moved to Glasgow for much of his adult life, where his experience as a social worker in the mental health field informed and underpinned his writing. He now lives in Morar where, as well as writing crime thrillers, he runs a guest house.
