Blog Blitz & Review – The Note by Andrew Barrett

Bloodhound Books never disappoints when it comes to thrillers! I’m always excited to join in on their blog tours and blitzes!

Thanks to Bloodhound Books and to the author for the advanced ebook copy in exchange for my honest review.

THE NOTE – Andrew Barrett (out now!)



Book Description:

Have you ever had that feeling of being watched but when you turn around no one’s there?

I have.

It was raining, and I was working a murder scene around midnight when that prickle ran up my spine. If I’d listened to that feeling, if I’d thought back to my past, maybe I could have prevented the terror that was to come.

Back at the office, I found a death threat on my desk.

I had no idea who sent it or why they wanted to kill me.

But I was about to find out.

I’m Eddie Collins, a CSI and this is my story.


My Thoughts: 5/5 stars!

As you may know, I’m a huge fan of short stories. Man, does this one pack a punch in just under 100 pages. THE NOTE by Andrew Barrett is the perfect choice if you’re wanting something twisty that you can read in one sitting. It’s always so difficult reviewing short stories without spoiling the important parts!

The synopsis gives you all that you need to know, but prepare yourself for an eerie and thrilling read that will leave you feeling paranoid. I definitely had one of those, “look over your shoulder” moments when I finished up. I loved THE END OF LIES, and this one did not disappoint. I can’t wait to see what Barrett comes up with next.


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.
