I obtained a free copy of Amazon and although I do find short stories often lack substance for obvious reasons, I still found this book a good read. I believe Andrew Barrett has written other full length novels using the character Eddie Collins and I am pretty sure I would find these more to my liking.
This short story is only 25 pages long but credit to the author he packs in an awful lot. The main character Eddie is on his way to the scene of a robbery and gets stuck in a lift with a boy and an ex policeman, who are also heading for the same place. When the lift gets stuck between floors all hell breaks loose. This short story is packed full of good characters and promises a lot for other books by this author which I intend to read.
The author has managed to create a really meaty story in such a very short read - the writing was excellent - the characters very believable - and he managed to generate some high tension with the characters trapped within this claustrophobic metal container and in such close proximity. Turns out they're all heading for the same place, but a lot happens before they reach the tenth floor! A great little read.
This is classic Eddie in one of his more lugubrious moods, enhanced by his proximity to the great unwashed and intensified by a careless moment of civility.
This is the first writing of Andrew Barrett that i have experienced and, i hope, a good introduction. I will certainly be reading more on the strength of this unexpected little gem
