UNTIL I FIND YOU
BOOK DESCRIPTION:


...a multigenerational, first-person narrative about a son's search for his prodigal father, a church organist that abandoned the boy's mother, a tattoo artist.  Unknown to his congregation in Edinburgh, the father has his own secret tattoos.  'He is a collector,' Mr. Irving said, 'an ink addict, who has the need to cover his body like a sheet of music.  He's traceable by the tattoo world that he haunts.'
