Black by Rose (CSI Eddie Collins Book 2)


Black by Rose is the key to it all.

In a rage, CSI Eddie Collins leaves a murder scene, triggering a series of life changing events; but not only for him.

Operation Domino is the Major Crime Unit's investigation into gang boss, Slade Crosby, and the killing of an undercover officer. But when Eddie finds a gangland victim dead in his house, he confronts Crosby and instantly wishes he hadn't. There is a gun at his head. And no way out. Even the MCU cannot save him.

Tampered evidence halts Domino's progress, and with Eddie out of the way, Crosby is in the clear.

How can Eddie escape death and nail Crosby before the killing starts again?

If you like fast-paced crime thrillers with a forensic slant, a gripping twist, and characters that reach out of the book and grab you by the throat, you'll love Andrew Barrett's Eddie Collins series.

Andrew Barrett

I write crime thrillers, and have done since 1996, about the same time I became a CSI here in Yorkshire. All of my books are set in or around our biggest city of Leeds.

I don't write forumlaic crime fiction; each on is hand-crafted and home-grouwn to give you a unique flavour of what CSIs encounter in real life. Every book is rich with forensic insight but that insight never drowns the story; it's there to enhance your enjoyment only.

My thrillers live inside the police domain; they have detectives and uniformed officers, but they predominantly feature CSIs (od SOCOs as we used to be known). Come and live with us as we go about our sometimes unenviable tasks, and listen to the language we speak, see the things we see, and experience the emotions we feel.

So pull on your nitrile gloves and you face mask, get comfy and read on.
