Chris Carter is a top bestselling author in the UK, whose series featuring LAPD detective Robert Hunter includes An Evil Mind, One By One, The Death Sculptor, The Night Stalker, The Executioner, and The Crucifix Killer. His most recent book, I Am Death, was published in July 2015.
Carter worked as a criminal psychologist for several years where, as a member of the Michigan State District Attorney’s Criminal Psychology team, he interviewed and studied many criminals, including serial and multiple homicide offenders with life imprisonment convictions. It is thus not surprising that An Evil Mind was shortlisted for the Dr Lecter Award for Scariest Villain in the 2015 Dead Good Reader Awards.
After leaving his job as a criminal psychologist, Carter then moved to Los Angeles, where he swapped the suits and briefcases for ripped jeans, bandanas, and an electric guitar. He toured the world several times as a professional musician before giving it all up to become a full-time writer.
Carter now lives in London.
