Overview

Unthinkable Crimes

A family of four murdered in their hotel room. A single mother and her boyfriend both stabbed to death. A sordid history of violent crimes, repeated over and over--but decades apart. . .

Unrelenting Fear

Olivia Barker is a therapist with no connection to the murders. But she has heard things. Stories that keep her up at night. Details that only a killer would know. A killer who could be one of her patients. . .

Unspeakable Truth

Olivia has no proof for her suspicions. But as the body count rises, so do her fears. A rock is thrown through her window; her car tires are slashed; a chilling message is scrawled on her bathroom mirror. Olivia knows she's getting closer to the truth. But the truth could be the last thing she'll ever know. . .

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.

I have read all of Kevin O'Brien's books and he is probably my favorite suspense author. This book did not disappoint either. I loved all the flashbacks to the Seattle's Worlds Fair murders, and like all of his books, I was thoroughly creeped out reading it, which is always the test for me when reading a suspense novel.

I LOVED this book and didn't want it to end. I've been a fan of Kevin O'Brien since his first book, and he's back in rare form with "Unspeakable." I could not put it down. Talk about a wild, wild ride!

I really like Kevin O'Brien's books and this did not disappoint, though I figured out most of the ending ahead of time. Will continue to read more from this author.

Kevin O'Brien is so great at twisting and turning. Easy to get sucked into his books. I never want to put his books down. I have read 4 of his books and loved them all. I have purchased all of his other books and look forward to reading them.

Unspeakable ... As usual - he is a great writer!!!! I really, really enjoyed this book. Originally thought it started out a little slow - put it away and restarted and it was fantastic! Lots of twists and turns - can't wait for his next book! One of my favorite authors!!!

I was riveted throughout and had no idea how it would end; somewhat unusal for me. Unfortunately, when got to the ending I found it unsatifying.

This was my first Kevin O'Brien book, and I will certainly read more. His very vivid descriptions made you feel like you were there. Really intense mystery.

I've been disappointed with this book, first one by Kevin O'Brien that didn't deliver. Too much on Ted Bundy in this book. I know you needed some of Ted to get what this book was about, but, I felt like you were going on too much about him.

This book is a page turner. The suspense was tightly woven throughout the story, add to that mystery, great characters and the bonus that there is no way to figure out the ending and what you have is a best seller. Will appeal to both male and female readers. Glad I invested in this one, it was a real gem. Jp
