About Chris Barraclough

Chris Barraclough is an award-winning crime writer and journalist from Sunderland, UK.

His debut novel 'Bat Boy' (told from the POV of a blind British boy searching for his father after a family tragedy) took him a sweat-inducing four years to write, but the pain was worth it. Bat Boy won the UK Authors Award 2011 and was published by the UKA Press, to great critical acclaim. 25% of paperback royalties are donated to the RNIB (so buying a copy makes you a wonderful person), and the Kindle version has just been released.

His follow-up, a fast-paced crime thriller called 'Crack', was shortlisted in the Contact Publishing Page Turner Prize 2011. It's the first in his Twin Towers Estate series, following a violent uprising on a notorious Northern council estate, and the second Twin Towers book 'Kitty' is also out now on Kindle. Most recently, his mystery novel 'Dead Dogs' - the first to be set outside of the UK - was nominated for the Dylan Thomas Award for its suspenseful but darkly comic portrayal of a family torn apart by Albania's archaic Blood Feud revenge laws.

Review by: Mike Tunstall on May 09, 2012 :
Bought this on a recommendation for hols but ended up reading it all before even leaving. I never knew about Albanias blood feuds before so was very interesting reading, scary how things like that go on even today! Thankfully dead dogs is funny too, to lighten the mood despite the dark subject matter. There's some great twists about the grandad and why the town is so suspicious of them all, and the ending was surprising but perfect. If you want a funny but addicting book that makes you think I recommend dead dogs.
