It’s midsummer and high time to celebrate the publication of a new thriller by Seattle writer Kevin O’Brien. While he ventured to Lopez Island for his last novel, They Won’t Be Hurt, many of the twists and turns of his new book, The Betrayed Wife (Kensington), take place in Seattle, including a key scene at the Century Ballroom, just a few doors down from us. Kevin O’Brien’s many books include Tell Me You’re Sorry, Hide Your Fear, You’ll Miss Me When I’m Gone and the classic, Only Son.
“Terrifying and fast-paced … Kevin O'Brien (Unspeakable, Killing Spree) has written a thriller that ratchets the tension high. Fans of Karin Slaughter or David Baldacci are sure to find it irresistible.” —Shelf Awareness on They Won’t Be Hurt.
Kevin O’Brien was a longtime board member of the Seattle7Writers and though Seattle7 has officially folded, their projects live on at the Hugo House and elsewhere.
