Chris Strange is a writer of urban fantasy and other fantastika. He is especially fond of writing hardboiled stories with a noir influence. His goal is to deliver intense, humorous and sometimes dark stories to his readers.
In his spare time, Chris is an unapologetic geek, spending far too long wrapped up in speculative fiction books, watching old zombie movies and playing computer games. He lives in the far away land of New Zealand, and occasionally he goes to university like he’s supposed to.
He doesn’t plan on growing up any time soon.

I received this book for free in exchange for agreeing to provide an honest review.
I love a book that keeps me guessing, and that is what The Man Who Walked In Darkness does amazingly well. Miles is definitely a man who marches to the beat of his own drummer. His personal moral code has a tenancy to get him in big trouble. He's rather like that watch that takes a licking but keeps on ticking.
This story has more ups and downs than a roller coaster. The characters are wonderfully described, yet the reader is never quite sure who is on the side of evil as opposed to who is on the side of good. Except of course for Miles loyal friends who are always there when he needs them. Just when I thought I had everything figured out, there came another plot twist. I loved the language contrasts used in the book. We are in the future when moving between worlds is quite common and yet old fashioned detective story language slips into the narrative. I loved it.
