Ledston Luck (CSI Eddie Collins Book 4)


They say you can always trust a copper. They're lying.
They lied thirty years ago and they're still lying today.

A booby-trapped body in a long-abandoned chapel. A scene examination that goes horribly wrong. CSI Eddie Collins and DI Benson are injured and one of the team killed. Eddie is heartbroken and guilt-ridden. And angry.

If you like fast-paced crime thrillers with a forensic slant, raw emotions, and characters that reach out of the book and grab you by the throat, you'll love Andrew Barrett's Eddie Collins series.
To experience Eddie's battle to uncover the lies they told, buy Ledston Luck today.

What people are saying about Ledston Luck.
"A gritty and uncompromising book with an unforgettable main character. Gripping, fast-paced and spiced with dark humour."
Elly Griffiths - author of the Ruth Galloway series

"Andrew writes with a wry sense of humour that bubbles just below the surface, although dark humour also runs through the heavily-detailed book. The detailing shows his experience as a senior CSI. But cleverly blended into the story so that it doesn't come across as a police manual.
There is so much anger coming off Eddie Collins, the main character.
He is belligerent, boastful, and arrogant. (Eddie's own words). He make enemies easily but once he has a puzzle to solve, or a death, there is no one more guaranteed to get to the bottom of it than Eddie Collins. In a job he is dedicated to, he is determined there will only ever be one winner. Justice.
For him, the dead come before the living."
Robin Roughley - author of the DS Lasser series

"Andrew Barrett weaves an intricate tale of deceit and torment. Absolutely brilliant instalment in the Eddie Collins series and well worth a read."
KA Richardson - author of The North East Police series

~If you only read one novel this year make sure it's this one

~I loved this book partly because it is set very close to home, but mostly because it is so very well written and sticks to the hands like glue until it is finished!

~Ledston Luck is a truly gripping crime book

~It's a story that will have you feeling a whole array of emotions whilst leaving your heart racing and feeling breathless

~This book's packed with action but there's room for thoughtful contemplation, too

~Eddie is such a well-drawn character that it is easy to feel all the emotions he's going through. At times I was in tears

~Totally engrossed in from page 1

~So much tension and edge-of-the-seat moments to keep your attention, this is a real sleep stealer of a book that I read in a day it was that gripping

~The main character, Eddie Collins who works in CSI, is a character that I fell in love with.

~Attention to detail is excellent, as well as procedure.

~Another brilliant book from one of my favourite authors

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.
