This book is rather lengthy and I will be honest in that it is the longest book I have read for quite a while and it did take me a while to get in to the story, but I split the book over a few nights and was soon engrossed in the story.
Eddie Collins is a fantastic character, he has an excellent sense of humour and dry wit and I love that we are not given another book based solely on the various murder investigation teams, etc – whilst I do love those books, this one being based on SOCO and more the forensic aspect is a refreshing change.
I enjoyed the story and it is four stars from me for this one – I am looking forward to reading the rest of the series!
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Andrew Barrett has enjoyed variety in his professional life, from engine-builder to farmer, from Oilfield Service Technician in Kuwait, to his current role of Senior CSI in Yorkshire.
He’s been a CSI since 1996, and has worked on all scene types from terrorism to murder, suicide to rape, drugs manufacture to bomb scenes. One way or another, Andrew’s life revolves around crime.
In 1997 he finished his first crime thriller, A Long Time Dead, and it’s still a readers’ favourite today, some 200,000 copies later, topping the Amazon charts several times. Two more books featuring SOCO Roger Conniston completed the trilogy.
Today, Andrew is still producing high-quality, authentic crime thrillers with a forensic flavour that attract attention from readers worldwide. He’s also attracted attention from the Yorkshire media, having been featured in the Yorkshire Post, and twice interviewed on BBC Radio Leeds.
He’s best known for his lead character, CSI Eddie Collins, and the acerbic way in which he roots out criminals and administers justice. Eddie’s series is four books and two short stories in length, and there’s still more to come.
Andrew is a proud Yorkshireman and sets all of his novels there, using his home city of Leeds as another major, and complementary, character in each of the stories.
