When it comes to mystery writing, Steve Hamilton knows how to create award-winning novels time and time again. From the publication of his very first novel in 1998, Hamilton has taken home some of the most prestigious prizes in crime writing from the Mystery Writers of America Edgar Award to the Private Eye Writers of America Shamus Award. Among his 12 previous novels are the 10 books that make up the Alex McKnight series, including two New York Times notable books. THE SECOND LIFE OF NICK MASON is the first in Hamilton’s new Nick Mason series that follows an unforgettable new hero, a man who will walk out of prison and into a harrowing double life that is anything but free. The thriller received several favorable reviews from the media as well as from fellow crime writers including Harlan Coben, Don Winslow and Stephen King.
