From award-winning and best-selling British crime author Chris Barraclough, creator of the internationally acclaimed Twin Towers Estate series (shortlisted, Page Turner Prize; shortlisted, SpaSpa best psychological fiction), comes his third full-length novel, Devil’s in a Different Dress.
June 22nd, 1945. A broken band of British soldiers occupy the remains of a disquiet southern German town. Tensions between them and the surviving locals are at an all time high and a brutal, bloody murder could prove the tipping point.
Forced to investigate the case, Captain Adam King struggles to control his team as well as his own personal demons while piecing together the horrifying clues. Packed with shocking twists, black humour and unexpected horror, Devil's in a Different Dress is Barraclough's "most thrilling slice of crime so far".
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Chris Barraclough is a British journalist and award-winning UK crime author who bagged the UK Authors Award for his highly-praised debut suspense novel "Bat Boy", following a blind teenage boy and his brother's search for their long-lost father (out now in paperback and on Kindle). His mystery novel “Dead Dogs” soon followed and was praised by critics (and nominated for the Dylan Thomas Sony Reader Award) for its shocking and darkly comical portrayal of an Albanian blood feud.
"Crack" (shortlisted, Page Turner Prize and SpaSpa Award for Best Psychological Fiction) was the first book in his thrilling Twin Towers Estate crime series, set in a notorious council estate on the brink of war. Crack won international acclaim and went on to sell tens of thousands of copies, and was followed by five more Twin Towers Estate thrillers. His latest series, The Bitch is Back, is also available right now on Kindle.
