Brazilian Chris Carter studied psychology with specialization in criminal behaviour in the US, and his knowledge is something that has always shone through in his novels. His series of books focus on criminal behaviour psychologist turned detective Robert Hunter who works for the Los Angeles Robbery Homicide Division. Although One by One was shortlisted for the Leserpreis Award in Germany, Chris is still considered exceptionally underrated in the UK. Despite this, he received two nominations from our followers on Facebook and Twitter; for One by One and The Crucifix Killer.

The Janus Stone – as voted by you – sees Ruth Galloway and DCI Harry Nelson team up to work on a 40 year old case when two missing children’s bodies are found.
