  • Chris Ewan

    Chris Ewan is the award-winning author of The Good Thief's Guide to ... series of mystery novels, which are in development with 20th Century Fox Television on behalf of showrunner Hart Hanson (Bones). His debut, The Good Thief's Guide to Amsterdam, won the Long Barn Books First Novel Award and is published in eleven countries, and Amsterdam, Paris, Vegas and Venice, have all been shortlisted for CrimeFest's Last Laugh Award.

    Born in Taunton in 1976, he now lives in the Isle of Man with his wife, Jo, and their daughter. Safe House, his first stand-alone thriller, was a number one bestseller in 2012 and was shortlisted for the Theakston's Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year Award. Dead Line, his second thriller, was published in 2013.

“The novel's formula is clever and well executed and his portrayal of the island duly atmospheric.”
- Marcel Berlins, The Times
“'This is a truly compelling piece of work. He utilises the more sinister aspects of Manx folklore, forging from it a truly atmospheric thriller that is impossible to put down. If Ewan chooses never to go back to his lighter Good Thief's Guide series and continues to produce novels like Dark Tides, readers will have little cause to complain.'”
- Barry Forshaw, Daily Express
