Bat Boy

“Fast, funny, riveting…a glorious read”Times Suspense 

In Barraclough’s suspenseful tongue-in-cheek mystery novel, two brothers are forced to tear across England in search of their long-lost father, with a mysterious stranger and the police right on their tails. A heart-warming and delightfully playful take on the crime genre, Bat Boy is told by the youngest brother, Joel, who is shy, optimistic and completely blind. Separated from his sibling, can Joel escape the dangerous criminal world he finds himself inadvertently thrust into?

“A wonderful, gripping thriller, from the first words to the last. Marvellous!”UK Crime Writers
