Glen Erik Hamilton

Glen Erik Hamilton's debut PAST CRIMES won the Anthony, Macavity, and Strand Magazine Critics awards for Best First Novel, and was also nominated for the Edgar, Barry, and Nero awards. Publishers Weekly and Library Journal gave Past Crimes starred reviews, and Kirkus called the book "an exciting heir to the classic detective novel". The follow-up in the Van Shaw series, HARD COLD WINTER, was published to rave reviews in 2016 by William Morrow (US) and Faber & Faber (UK) , and the third novel EVERY DAY ABOVE GROUND has received a starred review from Publishers Weekly.

A native of Seattle, Glen grew up aboard a sailboat, finding trouble around the islands and marinas and commercial docks of the Pacific Northwest. He now lives in California with his family but frequently returns to his hometown to soak up the rain.
