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.

Hello again!

In case you haven’t heard, Tamara’s novel, BRIMSTONE is now available in ebook and paperback at Amazon.com! BRIMSTONE is a coming of age story that takes place in 1968 in a little town called Brimstone in Arizona …

The Brimstone Grand Hotel, owned by reclusive former movie star, Delilah Devine, looms high on Hospital Hill, harboring long-buried family secrets that whisper of unimaginable horrors. Horrors that will echo down through generations. Within the walls of the Brimstone Grand, the past has come back to life, and Holly Tremayne and her grandmother Delilah are faced with an ancient familial evil that rages just below the old hotel’s serene facade. An evil that won’t rest until it possesses Holly – body, mind, and soul.

BRIMSTONE has been praised by THE WALKING DEAD author, Jay Bonansinga as “ … a kaleidoscopic cast of characters, a rich sense of place, and ever mounting suspense, BRIMSTONE brims with chills and thrills. Highly entertaining and highly recommended!” And New York Times bestseller, Kevin O’Brien says, “BRIMSTONE is deliciously scary … Earthquakes, nightmares, aberrations and ghosts keep the reader constantly on-edge.”

You can get BRIMSTONE now at Amazon

And that’s not all!

We’ve just released installment #5 in our serialized gothic horror series, THE RAVENCREST SAGA: EXORCISM. This one’s called NATIVITY, and it’s available in ebook at Amazon now!

In NATIVITY, Jazz Age music drifts through Ravencrest manor on chill night breezes as the haunting in the old poolhouse grows stronger and the ghost of Violet LeBlanc tries to warn Belinda that an unholy child is about to be born.  All hell is breaking loose at Ravencrest and there is nothing that can stop it.

But wait! There’s more!

Don’t forget that Alistair’s ghostly murder mystery, SLEEP SAVANNAH SLEEP, will be on sale for just $0.99 in ebook June 19th – June 25th at Amazon! SLEEP SAVANNAH SLEEP takes place in a mysterious little northern California town called Shadow Springs where residents keep to themselves (most of them, anyway), fog creeps through the graveyard at all hours, and a young woman with a shady past and a grim future disappears under very unsettling circumstances. And that’s just the beginning of the mystery …

We hope this helps get your summer off to the spookiest possible start and we wish you haunted nights, sweet screams, and lots of happy horrific reading!

Before his thrillers landed him on the New York Times Bestseller list, Kevin O’Brien was a railroad inspector.  The author of 16 internationally-published thrillers, he won the Spotted Owl Award for Best Pacific Northwest Mystery, and is a core member of Seattle 7 Writers. In a review of Kevin’s last thriller, TELL ME YOU’RE SORRY, Press & Guide said: “If Alfred Hitchcock were alive today and writing novels, his name would be Kevin O’Brien.” Kevin’s latest nail-biter, NO ONE NEEDS TO KNOW, will be released this summer

NO ONE NEEDS TO KNOW (to be released July, 2015):

In July, 1970, actress Elaina Styles was slain in a rented Seattle mansion along with her husband and their son’s nanny.  When the baby’s charred remains were found in a shallow grave close to a hippie commune, the police moved in—only to find all its members already dead in a grisly mass suicide.

Now, decades later, a film about the murders is shooting at the infamous mansion.  On-set caterer Laurie Trotter ignores gossip that the production is cursed.  But then people start dying…

As Laurie digs deep into what happened all those years ago, the truth emerges—more twisted than any whispered rumor—and a legacy of brutal violence reaches its terrifying climax.

TELL ME YOU’RE SORRY

A family is wiped out after a burglary gone wrong.  An executive accused of embezzling kills himself and his loved ones.  A house fire claims the lives of all its inhabitants.  Separate incidents with two common threads—a first wife who took her own life and a secret the victims took to their graves…

Stephanie Coburn had barely recovered from her sister’s mysterious suicide when her brother-in-law and his new wife are murdered, her face disfigured beyond recognition.  Stephanie never met the bride, has never even seen a clear photograph.  But she knew her sister, and she knows something is desperately wrong.

The police won’t listen.  Her only ally is another victim’s son.  Step by step, they uncover a trail of unrelenting vengeance and a killer whose forgiveness can only be earned in death.

FINAL BREATH (on sale, April, 2015; a re-release from 2010)

A first, the deaths seemed random.  A young Portland couple brutally murdered in a game gone awry…a Chicago woman who plummeted to her death from an office building…an aspiring screenwriter asphyxiated in his New York apartment.  But the macabre souvenirs television reporter Sydney Jordan receives hint at a connection that is both personal and terrifying.

When her husband, a Chicago policeman, gets in too deep with some corrupt cops, Sydney fled to Seattle with her teenage son.  But instead of getting a fresh start, Sydney is plagued by strange occurrences.  Someone is watching, someone who knows her intimately—someone who’s just waiting to play the next move in a twisted game.

She is his chosen one.  Every murder is a sign, and soon, Sydney will understand why each victim had to suffer—and why she’s the next in line.
