With his new novel The Caller (S & S) Chris Carter has beaten established authors like Joanna Trollope, Katie Fforde, Neal Gaiman and Sophie Kinsella to the No 1 spot on the ST List in its first week of publication.
The Caller is Chris Carter’s eighth serial killer novel featuring Robert Hunter.
Carter’s sales have been increasing book by book since his debut in 2009 with The Crucifix Killer which Darley sold at auction to S&S CEO Ian Chapman
Carter’s previous two novels I Am Death and An Evil Mind both went to No 5 on the ST Hardback Bestseller Lists.
This is also a personal triumph for Darley as Carter is the sixth of his own authors to achieve the No 1 spot on the Sunday Times List.
Some like Martina Cole and Lee Child have been long term No 1 Bestsellers for many years. Chris Carter now looks like joining their ranks
