Local Author Spotlight: Keith Gilman

Local author Keith Gilman is going to be a powerful new voice in crime fiction. In fact, his debut novel, Father's Day, has already been awarded Best First Novel by the Private Eye Writers of America! Gilman himself is has been a Philadelphia area police officer for more than a decade, and his experiences on the job show themselves in this gritty, provocative mystery.

Louis Kline, PI, is asked to track down the missing teenage daughter of an old friend. In doing so he uncovers disturbing truths about the alleged suicide of his friend, a fellow officer with the Philadelphia Police Department--with whom Louis shared accusations that ended both their careers, and a love for the same woman. As Louis further investigates, he comes to understand the tortured life of the girl he's trying to find, and a few hard truths about himself.

Keith Gilman knows how cops think and he pulls back the curtain on a disturbing vision of a decaying urban world, haunted by shadows of deceit and death. Father's Day, a novel of great psychological depth and stark visual imagery, is a terrifying exploration of what lies at the heart of our deepest fears.
