Series: Sean Rooney Thriller Series (#1)
Published: 18 Apr 2015
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 tedium of pursuing psychopathic killers, leave Sean Rooney a pathetic man, a failed forensic profiler, a bit of a loser and definitely retired. DCI Jacqueline Kaminski has other ideas. Faced with a multiple murder - and some headless corpses - she needs Rooney back on the case.
