Once You Let Them In

The lights are on at the Singleton vacation home on Lopez Island, Washington, illuminating the horror within. Scott Singleton, former NFL star turned television evangelist, lies dead. The bodies of his wife and four of their five children are found on the second floor, bound, gagged, and stabbed repeatedly. The oldest daughter was shot downstairs. And the police’s main suspect—the property caretaker—has disappeared.

They Will Never

In her secluded vineyard home two hours away, Laura Gretchell is on edge. Her husband is out of town on business, and the children are understandably shaken. Laura tries to tell herself there’s no reason to fear. Then the door handle rattles, and the real terror begins.

Let You Go

They’re in her house, holding her children hostage, and Laura has only one option: do exactly what the intruders say. But as Laura races to find the information they seek, she realizes that the enemies within her own home are only part of the nightmare. Because someone wants to keep the truth hidden at any cost, no matter how many more must die . . .

Praise for Kevin O’Brien’s You’ll Miss Me When I’m Gone

“The suspense builds from page one and ends with a climax you won’t see coming.” --Suspense Magazine

About Kevin O'Brien:

Before his thrillers landed him on the New York Times bestseller list, Kevin O’Brien was a railroad inspector who wrote novels at night. He moved from the train tracks to writing full-time in 1997, when his novel, Only Son, was picked up by Readers Digest and optioned for film, thanks to interest from Tom Hanks. Since then, five of his novels have been USA Today and New York Times bestsellers and his books have been published in into fourteen languages. O’Brien’s 17th novel, You’ll Miss Me When I’m Gone, will be released by Kensington Publishing in August 2016. Born and raised in Chicago, he now lives in Seattle, where he is on the board of Seattle 7 Writers (, a collective of bestselling, award-winning authors that includes Garth Stein, Maria Semple, Jess Walters, Tim Robbins, Erik Larson, Terry Brooks, Erica Bauermeister, Susan Wiggs, Jennie Shortridge and Elizabeth George.
