about the author
Author of a different breed of thrillers, Owen Banner spent his childhood baptized in the red dirt of Mandeville, Jamaica and his adolescence in the neon morass of Manila in the Philippines. He’s lived in or traveled to countries all over the planet, nourished by their people and cultures. These diverse voices plant the seeds of his stories, which twist genre and seek new perspectives. His novels are intense and character-driven, exploding with action and sizzling with description and dialogue, never losing sight of the complexity of the people and places that populate them. His first novel, Hindsight is a high-octane psychological thriller of terrorism and crime. Kirkus Reviews calls it “a high-stakes suspense novel with a breakneck pace and strong voice”.
