Had absolutely no expectations of what this book would be like. None whatsoever. Read it because (a) the author is a Liverpool FC fan (b) There was a buzz going on and beginning to build about this book that I wanted to be in too

No show without punch (me) but also felt a massive missing out on something good. FOMO

Even though I’d decided not to do many blog tours. Find them nerve wracking and I’m scared of missing my date. Finally accepted this and so glad I did.

However, read this one in record time . Reading it through the night and developing insomnia (again) or turning into a werewolf again (no laughing!) and other things that a good night sleep might be prescribed for.

Sleep! What the heck is that?

Read on and on until the end.

Well developed, believable characters with interesting but fascinating back stories of their own that can lead you down one path and take it up another. Great plot. Holds the interest of the this reader and others too, so I hear on the grapevine. Novel idea – literally!

Like the central characters, found them believable and wanted to read more.

A darned good interesting read.

I’m sure Chris will hopefully look back on this time and remember us fondly or brush past us in a queue at his many book signings. This author – real name Chris – is definitely on his way somewhere. I feels it. ;).

Wow! Check out this review from none other than Noelle Holton!


“Wow! Chris McDonald has written a clever, chilling and absolutely addictive debut novelwith A Wash of Black! A pacy read that will keep you turning the pages. I already want the next book in the DI Erika Piper series…like yesterday!” 
— Noelle Holten, author of Dead Inside 


Originally hailing from the north coast of Northern Ireland and now residing in South Manchester, Chris McDonald has always been a reader. At primary school, The Hardy Boys inspired his love of adventure, before his reading world was opened up by Chuck Palahniuk and the gritty world of crime.

He’s a fan of 5-a-side football, has an eclectic taste in music ranging from Damien Rice to Slayer and loves dogs.
