So naturally, I wanted to read all 3 books in The Finbar Trilogy.

We are pretty lucky to have Bill Deasy in our own backyard, and I appreciate some of the references to Pittsburgh in his books.

I am grateful to a friend who recently recommended Ghost Tree to me. I thoroughly enjoyed the book, and I am looking forward to future works from this author (Bill Deasy). Based on this book, I will also read Deasy's earlier works (Ransom Seaborn and Traveling Clothes). I read the book on a weekend when I had some time to immerse myself in the book. A dying man's last words are the catalyst for a chain of events that serve as the plot of the book. In addition, a mystery runs through the story, and I was eager to see its solution. Deasy presents a compelling cast of characters who drive the plot of the book. He excels at creating strong and interesting characters with whom the reader empathizes. I would love to meet the people in Ghost Tree, and my interest in their lives kept me glued to the book. Bill Deasy is a musician as well as an author. His clever use of language is as evident in the prose of Ghost Tree as it is in his songs. As I came to the end of Ghost Tree, satisfaction with a story well told mixed with regret for a story that came to an end. I strongly recommend this book to a broad array of readers.

I just had to share my love for this wonderful novel! Ghost Tree is captivating until the very end. I'm so glad I discovered this series and I think this is Bill Deasy's best work yet. The story is both unpredictable and inspiring. I really liked the characters and loved the way the author weaved together the emotional story. I'm planning to give the entire trilogy as Christmas gifts to the other avid readers on my holiday list and I'm hoping Deasy is planning a fourth novel very soon!

Wow! Wow! Wow! Finished reading "Ghost Tree," last night. Everyone should read this warm and hope-filled tale of rock & roll redemption. It is warm, funny, sad, and suspenseful. Most of all it speaks to our basic human goodness and reminds us that life and love are precious gifts to be treasured.

Loved the Dan Finbar Band reference to "singing his last song, one about being lost in America."

Thanks Bill! GREAT read!!

I don't typically write reviews, but if you're looking for the perfect gift for your music-lover, buy this book!!! As a long-time fan of the movie Eddie and the Cruisers, I never thought I'd find another story that combines music, mystery and nostalgia so well. Ghost Tree is it! Not only does Bill Deasy weave an intricate story around characters you want to read about, he brilliantly integrates the role of modern-day social media in driving the plot forward. Where a lot of books feel "passive", this one makes you root for all of the pieces to fall into place. If I could give it 6 stars, I would!

Watched Bill play songs with lyrics he had written when he was with the group Gathering Field. The music and lyrics were amazing then. Read Ghost Tree last week, was well developed plot with excellent development of story line. Enjoyed the book and will now buy his two others. Still, would love to hear him play again. Very talented man.

Format: Paperback
For years I have enjoyed the author's wonderful words in the form of song. His latest artistic work, "Ghost Tree", has sealed the deal for me that not only is he an accomplished singer/songwriter, he also is a very creative writer. I thoroughly enjoyed the many references to the Pittsburgh area in this book. Having followed his bands for many years, my mind couldn't help trying to tie some of the characters to his real-life band members. The way fiction was mixed with reality and the mystery it created, made it hard for me to put the book down. Bill Deasy was a founding member of a Pittsburgh based band "The Gathering Field". The Gathering Field soared to popularity in the mid 90's, was signed by Atlantic Records in 1996, and recently had a reunion show. I highly recommend reading this book and also checking out Bill Deasy and The Gathering Field music on iTunes if you are not fortunate enough to live in Pittsburgh and catch one of his awesome live shows.

Bill has outdone himself with Ghost Tree. The third book from this author is the best one yet. I could not put it down and could not wait to see the story lines develop with the characters. He gave you the background of each character and how the past and present are intertwined. Being a fan of Bill's music, he incorporated his own personal song title as one of the hits the band plays. Well done and cannot wait for #4.

Bill Deasy has done an incredible job of captivating the reader with this effort and allowing us to share in these character's unpredictable journey. This was a book that I was not able to put down simply because I wanted to find out what happened next. The descriptive character development allowed me to connect with each person and feel part of the their emotional roller coaster ride ~ I had no idea of the ending! I would highly recommend this book and hope a 4th is on the way!
