About Sean Patrick Reardon
I'm a crime / thriller fiction writer, who pays the bills working for a large investment company and resides in Massachusetts. When not doing the above, I like to play lacrosse, follow and play cricket, and spend time with family and friends. I'm usually reading at least one novel on any given day. I love Rock-n-Roll and good crime / heist movies.
