Greetings from Kevin O'Brien

I’M PUMPED that my novel, ONLY SON, is back in print after twenty years! Here I am back in 1996, pushing the hardcover (see me below—with a bad Ben Affleck-in-CHASING AMY goatee). I think the book has aged better than I have. While the body count in ONLY SON is zero, there are still plenty thrills and suspense. It’s always been a favorite among my novels. This one was almost a movie starring Tom Hanks (right after he did PHILADELPHIA). I hope you’ll check out ONLY SON. And be on the lookout for my new thriller HIDE YOUR FEAR headed your way on July 25th!

When I'm Gone

Andrea Boyle and her nephew, Spencer, have moved to Seattle where they can have a fresh start. Andrea falls in love with a prominent playwright, Luke Shuler, who comes with some baggage: a clinging, possessive ex-wife and a troubled teenage son, Damon.

Relentlessly teased and bullied at school, Damon snaps. In a live podcast, he denounces his tormentors, and then kills his mother and himself in a fiery explosion. Within hours, one of Damon’s tormentors and an unsympathetic teacher are killed in another explosion. Then a seemingly random attack on Luke lands him in the hospital.

Soon, one by one, the students who picked on Damon are brutally picked off. The police suspect Damon’s classmate, Spencer, is behind the rash of recent violent deaths. Someone is framing him, someone who knows about Spencer's troubled past. It’s up to Andrea uncover the real killer—and the horrifying reason behind the killings—before she becomes the next to die.
