Author Bio: Owen Laukkanen

Owen Laukkanen’s 2012 debut, The Professionals, earned rave reviews from critics and readers alike. The story of four recent university graduates who turn to kidnapping in a failing job market was hailed by Mystery Scene Magazine as one of the year’s best debuts, while Kirkus Reviews named it one of the top 100 novels of the year. A graduate of the University of British Columbia’s creative writing program, Laukkanen spent three years in the world of professional poker reporting after answering a Craigslist ad before turning to fiction. He currently lives in Vancouver, where he’s hard at work on the third and fourth installments in the Stevens and Windermere series.
