Loved it, would make a great film plot.Andrew Barrett opens up a dark and bloody world behind the blue and white crime scene tapeCompletely surprised by the final plot twistWritten by a SOCO about a SOCO so you know it is accurate
I've read all the usual suspects - Ian Rankin, Mark Billingham, Peter Robinson, Peter James, Stuart McBride, etc - and was looking for something similar. I wasn't disappointed with Andrew Barrett.Just enough technical information to aid understanding but without it becoming a tedious lectureAbsolutely brilliantExciting right to the last chapter and what a last chapter, superbHumour, sadness, violence it has it all.
Hooked from the beginning. A real whodunnit that keeps you guessing to the end.The sort of book that kept me saying, "I'll just read one more chapter," till way past my bedtime.Spent the whole night reading this thriller, a proper page turner.
