About the author

Harry Dunn

Harry Dunn, has recently released Death Run, the third book in his successful Jack Barclay thriller series. During his years working for BBC Publications Harry worked in press and publicity and was involved in promotional tours for Delia Smith, Ken Hom and Keith Floyd among others. When not writing or delivering workshops, Harry enjoys reading, cooking with a glass of wine and playing golf.

Little did Harry Dunn know when he accompanied TV celebrities on book tours throughout the UK, he would eventually finish up on the other side of the bookshop signing table.

Harry travelled with the likes of Delia Smith, Keith Floyd and Ken Hom and during long tours; his choice of reading genre was crime fiction. Keith Floyd once said to him, 'You should write your own novel, you know enough about it!'

Once retired, Harry took up the challenge and turned his reading passion into a writing one and the result was his first crime fiction novel, 'Smile of the Viper.'

He always had a picture image of his main character and that person is London P.I. Jack Barclay whose tough exterior belies his engaging personality.

Harry's books are fast paced thrillers and his second novel, 'Forever Evil' reached number one in Canada and Australia in the private investigator category, whilst reaching number three in the UK. In the grand tradition of the genre his books have a completely unexpected twist at the end.

His latest Jack Barclay thriller is 'Death Run' and deals with the smuggling of the deadly opioid fentanyl into the UK.

Harry's books are published by Caffeine Nights and can be ordered in paperback at all good bookshops. They are also available online from Amazon and all leading online distributors and in eBook format from Kindle, Apple, Kobo and all leading eBook outlets.
