Before his thrillers landed him on The New York TimesBestseller list, Kevin O’Brien was a railroad inspector who worked all the live long day and wrote novels at night. His job took him all over the Pacific Northwest, and he wrote most of his first novel in Best Westerns and Red Lions. The result, ACTORS was translated into three languages. Kevin’s second book, ONLY SON was optioned for film rights thanks to interest from Tom Hanks. ONLY SON was also chosen by Reader’s Digest for their Select Editions—alongside John Grisham’s THE PARTNER. His first thriller, THE NEXT TO DIE became a USA Today Bestseller. Three more USA Today bestselling thrillers followed, and then came THE LAST VICTIM which hit the New York Times Bestseller list and won the Spotted Owl Award for Best Pacific Northwest Mystery. Kevin has continued to turn out New York Times best-selling thrillers and is on the board of Seattle 7 Writers, a collective of bestselling, award-winning authors, dedicated to supporting literacy, writing and education.
