It comes as no surprise that I am a big fan of Andy Barrett as an author – he encapsulates a lot of what I love about crime fiction in his writing – Really accurate science and CSI and trust me i’m picky about that but you know you are in safe hands when the author is a practising CSI. He also writes fantastic characters that are real people you don’t always like Eddie Collins one of his leading characters but then again you’re not meant to but you do admire him. There is also plenty of humour and crime fiction really needs that, when you go to some of the dark places that a crime author goes to you also need some comic relief to lighten the mood.
In light of all that I was really honoured when Andy asked me to reveal the cover for his new Novella the Note which will be released on the 5th May. Here’s the blurb to get you interested
I’m Eddie Collins, a CSI.
Ever had that feeling of being watched but when you turn around no one’s there?
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, and I didn’t know why they wanted to kill me.
But I was about to find out.
and finally here’s the cover:
