Born in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Henry Brock lives in Toronto, where he has worked in the Toronto film industry for ten years. He currently works as a makeup artist for a number of popular daytime dramas.

. . . an excellent, vibrant read, even though it does rather tarnish the image of Canada being an always-gentle country where the most untoward behavior is ordering an Americano at a Tim Hortons.

Brock reshapes the traditional gumshoe persona in his debut noir novel . . . certain to become a new favorite for noir aficionados.

- Manhattan Book Review


I bloody loved it. Henry Brock's Vicious Dogs is a brutal slice of lowlife noir that smartly blends Charles Bukowski with Eddie Bunker and breathes new life into the PI novel.

- Paul D. Brazill, author of Cold London Blues and Guns of Brixton



A classic PI story with a fresh new voice. Vicious Dogs hits all the right notes. And who says Canadians are so polite? By the end, this dog bites!



-Eric Beetner, author of Rumrunners and The Devil Doesn’t Want Me-



“The first Derek Lasker Investigations delivers a whip-crack plot and devilish humor that goes down like a tall can of Molson's after a plate of poutine.”


-Eryk Pruitt, author of Dirtbags and Hashtag-
