The Lift (CSI Eddie Collins)

What people say about The Lift:

~An incredibly well penned piece of work. He blows me away with each book.
~A masterclass in how to hook the reader and then rack up the tension level to 100
~From the moment I read the opening lines I knew this was going to be good.
~Very atmospheric and forceful short story.
~CSI Collins is a very believable character and certainly has an enjoyable dry wit. His cynical remarks in the lift are just spot on.
~The tension builds as we become privy to Eddie's thoughts, fears and anxieties; the claustrophobic setting adding to the sense of menace, as the reasons for the other two's presence are revealed.
~Eddie is as world-worn and blackly humorous as ever, a character with such depth.
~The three-hander plays out with the vividness and claustrophobic threat Barrett is so good at creating. You, the reader, are there in that lift.
~It was real, gritty and gripping. I was in that lift.
~Andrew has created a gripping and complete tale which challenges stereotype.

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.
