Glen Erik Hamilton

Glen Erik Hamilton’s debut novel, PAST CRIMES, was one of the most lauded books of 2016, winning three Best First Novel awards—the Anthony, the Macavity and the Strand Magazine Critics Award—and was a finalist for three more: the Edgar and the Barry awards for Best First Novel and the Nero Award for Best American Mystery. Reviewers have called it “outstanding” (Library Journal, starred review) and “accomplished” (Publishers Weekly, starred review), and Lee Child declares it “a home run off the first pitch.” HARD COLD WINTER, the second book in the series that features Van Shaw, a former Army Ranger who was raised by his career-criminal grandfather to be a thief and now is trying to put his illicit past behind him, was recently published by William Morrow and has garnered similar praise. The third book in the series, EVERY DAY ABOVE GROUND, will be published in 2017 by Morrow in the US and by Faber & Faber in the UK, who have also published Glen’s previous novels.
