Blog Tour – The Lock by Andrew Barrett

Good morning, book worms! More blog tours this week 🙂

Thank you to the publisher and author for the free ebook copy in exchange for my honest review.

THE LOCK – Andrew Barrett (out now!)


Book Description:

I’m Eddie Collins, a CSI. I was finishing up at a sudden death in an old house, waiting for the body snatchers to arrive, when I heard a noise from the cellar.

I had time to kill, so I went to investigate.

Turns out I wasn’t the only one with killing on his mind.

My Thoughts: 4/5 stars!

This continues my long line of Andrew Barrett novels and I have yet to be disappointed. The Eddie Collins series has been an entertaining one and this novella is no exception!

Lots of action and suspense like we have come to expect and the same wit and sarcasm from Eddie. We are brought to a crime scene and as Eddie waits for the coroner to come remove the body, he hears a noise coming from the basement. What CSI wouldnt investigate?

I don’t want to give away much more because it is a novella, but if you want a fast paced thriller then I highly recommend this one! Fans of the Eddie Collins series definitely need this one on their TBR .


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 120,000 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.
