This Side of Death. When the past comes back to hunt you.
Alex Sheridan believes the only way she can be free of her demons is to kill the men in her life. She has a list, and Crime Scene Investigator Eddie Collins is on it.
Death misses Eddie by inches, and Alex is locked away in Juniper Hill high-security hospital.
Everything is fine for Eddie until one day four years later, when Alex escapes. This time she’s better prepared.
The week that follows ruptures Eddie’s life and shatters the belief he had in his own past, leaving him wondering what really happened, and facing one stark choice: who to kill and who to save.
This Side of Death is the most revealing CSI Eddie Collins novel to date. Prepare to see inside his past and understand what makes him the angriest, most feared, and yet most respected CSI in England.
If you like fast-paced and gripping crime thrillers with a strong forensic element, you’ll love Andrew Barrett’s This Side of Death. It will appeal to fans of Kathy Reichs, Robert Bryndza and Angela Marsons.
I love the CSI Eddie Collins series so when I saw that the sixth book in the series was being released I knew that I had to get my hands on a copy!
The book was well written and very well developed. I love Eddie’s characters and personality – he is fabulous, he makes me giggle, makes me cringe and he is far from being politically correct too and it is that combination that makes him a character I would always want to read more about! Alex is fantastic too and Andy has really nailed the characterisation with this one.
This is the sixth book in the series but it reads fine as a stand-alone and I would really recommend anyone tempted by this series, to pick this one up and give it a go. It is an additive and gripping read!
It is 5 stars from me for this one, very highly recommended and looking forward to the next release!
