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.” The subsequent books in the series, which 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, have been published by William Morrow and have garnered similar praise and reviews. The latest title is A Dangerous Breed, lauded as “exceptional” in a starred review from Publishers Weekly, and Book Reporter raves the Van Shaw series is “one of the thriller genre’s best.”
