Peter Abrahams

Peter Abrahams is the Edgar-award winning author of thirty-six novels. Named by Stephen King as his “favorite American suspense novelist,” Abrahams is a writer of great range, his work including boundary-pushing crime novels such as Oblivion and End of Story as well as the dog-narrated and New York Times bestselling Chet and Bernie series (written under his pen name, Spencer Quinn), which “radiate pure comic genius” according to Publishers Weekly. On NPR’s Talk of the Nation, Laura Miller called him “the best writer of psychological fiction around.”

His novel The Fan was made into a movie starring Robert De Niro. He also writes for younger readers. Down the Rabbit Hole, first book in the middle-grade Echo Falls series, won the Agatha award, and Woof, first in the ongoing Bowser and Birdie series, was a New York Times bestseller.

The Right Side, a novel about a terribly wounded female Army vet, was published in June, 2017. Bow Wow, third in the Bowser and Birdie series, came out in May, 2017.

Abrahams was born in Boston, graduated from Williams College, and lives on Cape Cod.
