Overview

Something She Can't Remember

When Claire Shaw wakes in a Seattle hospital, she remembers nothing of what has happened to her. She doesn't recognize the concerned faces of her husband and friends. She knows only that she is lucky to be alive, the single surviving victim of a vicious serial killer.

Someone Who Won't Forget

She was a mistake—not like the others. She didn't understand. That was obvious now. But she would come to understand. Next time, there would be no escape—and her eyes would fill with that perfect, beautiful terror. . .

Some Things You Can't Imagine

On an island isolated from the mainland, Claire has returned to a life she barely knows anymore. A town that feels as if it, too, is hiding something in its dark woods, remote cabins, and chilly smiles. Bit by bit, Claire's memory is taking terrifying shape in a place where fear is very much at home. . .

Meet the Author

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 (www.seattle7writers.org), 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.   Please visit Kevin online at KevinOBrienBooks.com.
