3 [Thrillers] (British Crime, Thrillers and Mystery)

Award-winning crime author Chris Barraclough’s fifth book is a collection of three thrilling novellas, about humans pushed to their limits, willing to do the unthinkable to get what they want.

From an imprisoned girl given one last chance for revenge, to a community pushed to breaking point by a senseless murder, this is 250 pages of extreme storytelling filled with suspense, mystery, horrific crimes, devastating dark humour and killer twists.

#1: The Borstal
In an impoverished communist country where the power-hungry government rules its citizens with terror, a girl and her brother are thrown into a dangerous institute for taming criminals and hardening its inmates into the next generation of soldiers. Their struggle for survival turns into a lust for revenge, as their story is told in two parts: the oppression of the borstal and the tragic events that led them there…

#2: Fulfilment
A thirty-something Londoner has a chance meeting with a man who could be his twin: same age, same looks, same history. But one too many coincidences reveals a shocking secret, in this deliciously dark slice of tongue-in-cheek black humour.

#3: Demon
A small island community is rocked by the sudden, violent death of one of its members, and the mysterious arrival of a stranger throws the population into chaos. Is he a demon sent to punish them all for their sins, or a sign that there’s life beyond the raging sea? The crimes and mystery are gradually revealed as the story is told from three very different viewpoints…
