Tracey is a tough streetwise 22-year-old born to a middle-class English woman. All she knows about her father is his name, Eoin MacSweeney, and that he was a travelling fiddle-player from Donegal. When her mother dies, Lisa hears by chance that MacSweeney is still alive and sets off to find him.

Review:

‘Father’s Music pulses to the rhythm of a taut romantic thriller. It is the work of a master craftsman, with intricate plotting and the interweaving of characters’
lives casting a hypnotic spell’
Jack Hanna, Irish Times

‘Dermot Bolger creates a Dublin, a particular world, like no one else writing can… It is the urban landscape of the thriller that Bolger has made exclusively his own.’
Anne Haverty, Sunday Independent

‘A masterly psychological thriller’
Sunday Telegraph

From the Back Cover:

“Lies, manipulation and suspicion are at the heart of 'Father’s Music' from the very start. In the opening scene of this, Dermot Bolger’s sixth novel, Tracey Evans, a promiscuous young Londoner haunted by her Irish roots, makes love in a seedy hotel with Luke Duggan, a member of a notorious Dublin criminal family now leading what is on the surface a respectable business and married life in exile … After this dramatic prelude, the novel pulses to the rhythm of a taut romantic thriller. It is the work of a master craftsman, with intricate plotting and the interweaving of characters’ lives casting a hypnotic spell.”
JACK HANNA, 'Irish Times'

“'Father’s Music' is the real McCoy, a gripping adventure story in which the characters’ struggles to confront their own demons are every bit as important as the mechanics of the plot. It is a consummate piece of work. The Irish novel is really flying at the moment and, in the galaxy of young talent, Dermot Bolger shines as brightly as anyone.”
DAVID ROBSON, 'Sunday Telegraph'

“Everything of the alienated urban underbelly is here, sloshing around in a potent brew … Dermot Bolger creates a Dublin, a particular world, like no one else writing can … It is the urban landscape of the thriller that Bolger has made exclusively his own.”
ANNE HAVERTY, 'Sunday Independent'

“Bolger has written a cracking, compelling and entertaining novel … 'Father’s Music' has a verve that is all but irresistible.”
ALLAN MASSIE, 'Scotsman'

“Grippingly well-written, vividly seen.”
BRIAN CASE, 'Time Out'
