Frank's Shadow
Newlywed Danny McKenna's honeymoon ends abruptly when he learns his father has died, uncannily, on the same day as his hero, Frank Sinatra. Returning home to his knotty Irish American family, Danny is confronted with a painful truth--while he knows everything about the famous singer, his own father is a mystery. Tasked with giving a eulogy for a man he hardly knows, Danny sets out to uncover his dad’s past--an immigrant's tale of mid-twentieth-century America and the harsh realities of WWII lived in stark contrast to Frank Sinatra's famously extravagant life. Along the way, Danny's own demons nearly destroy him as he struggles to accept his father’s deepest secret--a journey that takes him into the heart of darkness before he learns to live in the light. This debut novel from Doug McIntyre is a poignant exploration of identity, family, and the ways in which the lives of celebrities intersect with our own.He is a long-time newspaper columnist, former radio host, and has written for all the major networks, including the hit series, Married… With Children, WKRP in Cincinnati, Full House and more.
