Charles O'Brien decided to try his hand at writing historical mysteries due to a lifelong love of delving into the past. James Joyce’s Dubliners and Willa Cather’s Death Comes for the Archbishop have both influenced his writing style. He lives with his wife, Elvy, an art historian, in Williamstown, a small college town in the Berkshire Mountains of western Massachusetts.Review:
Praise for Death of a Robber Baron
"O’Brien captures the colorful details and varied characters of an opulent era deftly."
"A pleasingly detailed look at the age of the robber barons along with enough strongly characterized suspects to keep readers guessing."
"The author skillfully weaves in fascinating details about American social history. Pair with Stefanie Pintoff, and also recommend for fans of Rhys Bowen’s ‘Molly Malone’ series."
