Abraham's first book, The Fury of Rachel Monette, was published in 1980;
since then he has published a further 15 adult novels and, last year, his first
novel for teens,
Down The Rabbit Hole, the first in the Echo Falls Mystery series.
Although all his books fall broadly into the thriller category, to pigeonhole
him as simply a writer of thrillers is too simplistic. For a bibliography of his books see
BookBrowse. His latest novel for adults, End of Story, was
published in hardcover earlier this month, and the second in his Echo Falls
Mystery, Behind The Curtain, series will be published next week.
When asked which authors have most influences him he cites Vladimir Nabokov, Graham Greene and Dostoevsky, in particular Pale Fire, The Comedians and Crime and Punishment.
He lives in Falmouth, Massachusetts, with his wife and four children.
