Glen Hamilton


Glen Erik Hamilton won the Anthony, Macavity, and Strand Magazine Critics Awards for his debut, Past Crimes, which was also nominated for the Edgar, Barry, and Nero awards. His subsequent novels earned starred reviews. The fourth in the Van Shaw series, Mercy River, was published by William Morrow in the U.S. and Faber & Faber in the UK.

Glen is the current President of the Southern California chapter of Mystery Writers of America. 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.
