Kevin Kuhens is the Award-winning author of the Amazon #1 Bestselling Terror’s Sword, the first of his thrillers involving elite counterterrorism case officer Kyle McEwan. Kevin is a retired supervisory special agent for the U.S. Department of Defense.
A native of Louisville, Kevin began his sworn law enforcement career as a police officer in Kentucky, followed by a Federal career that spanned three decades. Kevin served as a civilian special agent for the Office of Naval Intelligence, Naval Investigative Service (now known as NCIS), and the Defense Criminal Investigative Service (DCIS). His numerous assignments crossed diverse mission areas conducting and supervising criminal, intelligence, terrorism, and task force investigations, acting as an undercover agent, directing covert operations, and performing domestic and foreign protective duties. These activities occurred inside the Beltway and across America and some two dozen countries.
Throughout his career, Kevin supported the armed forces of the U.S. and numerous allies during overseas combat operations and multinational peacekeeping efforts, including a one-year tour of duty aboard the aircraft carrier Independence (CV-62) and during military operations in Grenada and Beirut. Following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, he deployed to the Pentagon to support recovery efforts there. Kevin rounded out his law enforcement career as the DCIS Director for Training at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center, where he oversaw all facets of criminal investigator training, including firearms and defense tactics, for new and experienced agents.
Kevin is currently writing the follow-on novel to his highly acclaimed Terror’s Sword. The sequel will be the second installment in the Kyle McEwan series.
