Father’s Day is Keith Gilman’s provocative
debut from St. Martin’s Press and Minotaur Books. It was awarded Best First Novel by the
Private Eye Writers of America.
Father’s day is a dark and
atmospheric tale of an ex-cop from Philadelphia asked to track down the missing
daughter of an old friend. The
investigation takes him deep into his past, into the darkest corners of the
city where the ghosts of his most painful memories await his return.
He uncovers truths about the alleged
suicide of his friend, a fellow officer with the Philadelphia police
department; truths about the accusations that ended both their careers; truths
about the woman who had come between them; truths about the tortured life of
the girl he’s trying to find and naturally, truths about himself.
Father’s Day is a novel
with multiple layers of meaning, taut psychological depth, strong noir elements
and stark visual imagery. It is a
terrifying exploration of the emotions behind our deepest fears
