About the Book

They say you can always trust a policeman. They are lying.
They lied thirty years ago and they are still lying today.
When a booby-trapped body is discovered in a long-abandoned chapel, CSI Eddie Collins and his team are called to investigate. But when the scene examination goes horribly wrong, Eddie and DI Benson are injured and one of the team killed.
Heartbroken by the death, Eddie is also guilt-ridden. But more than that he is angry. Very angry.
Eddie will stop at nothing to bring the guilty to justice, and will teach them that even when served cold, revenge is a killer dish.  

My Review

This was the first book of Andrew’s I read and loved it so much I have bought another one straight after. I found the beginning a bit confusing as the first murder was so shocking I didn’t realise he had died.  I spent a while thinking that the story was going to be about him so got confused, but once I realised I loved it.

The story is very gruesome in places but well written and, although not strictly necessary all the way through, was pivotal to the plot.

The story reads well and the plot keeps you guessing all the way through. would definitely recommend it to everyone who loves forensic police stories.

About the Author


Andrew Barrett has enjoyed variety in his professional life, from engine-builder to farmer, from Oilfield Service Technician in Kuwait, to his current role of Senior CSI in Yorkshire.

He’s been a CSI since 1996, and has worked on all scene types from terrorism to murder, suicide to rape, drugs manufacture to bomb scenes. One way or another, Andrew’s life revolves around crime.

In 1997 he finished his first crime thriller, A Long Time Dead, and it’s still a readers’ favourite today, some 200,000 copies later, topping the Amazon charts several times. Two more books featuring SOCO Roger Conniston completed the trilogy.

Today, Andrew is still producing high-quality, authentic crime thrillers with a forensic flavour that attract attention from readers worldwide. He’s also attracted attention from the Yorkshire media, having been featured in the Yorkshire Post, and twice interviewed on BBC Radio Leeds.

He’s best known for his lead character, CSI Eddie Collins, and the acerbic way in which he roots out criminals and administers justice. Eddie’s series is four books and two short stories in length, and there’s still more to come.

Andrew is a proud Yorkshireman and sets all of his novels there, using his home city of Leeds as another major, and complementary, character in each of the stories.
