Van Shaw

Created by Glen Erik Hamilton

Cold, relentless and tougher than dirt, Army Ranger and sometime thief VAN SHAW hits the sweet spot somewhere between Stark's Parker and Child's Jack Reacher, albeit with a thin veneer of vulnerability unimagineable in the other two men, thanks to the PTSD he lugged back from his time in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Still, a man's gotta do what he's gotta, and when he returns home to Seattle to confront his criminal past, he's got some hard choices to make... and a rather unique skill set.

A native of Seattle, Glen Erik Hamilton grew up aboard a sailboat, and spent his youth finding trouble around the marinas and commercial docks and islands of the Pacific Northwest. He now lives in Burbank, California, with his family, punctuated by frequent visits to his hometown to soak up the rain.

UNDER OATH

  • "Glen Erik Hamilton has crafted a compelling new hero in Van Shaw, an Army Ranger with a dark streak who operates in the spaces between shadow and light. Past Crimes is a zipline ride of a thriller, plummeting through the back alleys of Seattle where murder and intrigue reign supreme and the undead past lurks around the next wrong turn. Buckle in and hang on!"

-- Gregg Hurwitz on Past Crimes
