Product description

About the Author

I write crime thrillers, and have done since 1996, about the same time I became a CSI here in Yorkshire. All of my books are set in or around our biggest city of Leeds. Sometimes I go wandering into the stunning countryside though and drag its beauty screaming into the pages of one of my books where it collides with the ugliness of death. I don’t write formulaic crime fiction; each one is hand-crafted and nurtured to give you a unique flavour of what CSIs encounter in real life. Every book is rich with forensic insight but that insight never drowns the story; it’s there to enhance your enjoyment only. My thrillers live inside the police domain; they have detectives and uniformed officers, but they’re predominantly about CSIs (or SOCOs as we used to be known). Come and live with them as they go about their sometimes unenviable tasks, and listen to the language they speak, see the things they see, and experience the emotions they feel. So pull on your nitrile gloves and your face mask, get comfy, and read on.

A dark and atmospheric little tale about three people stuck in a lift ( elevator ). CSI Eddie Collins thinks he's about to have another normal day doing what he does to earn a living, but never assume anything, because that's when something is likely to come along and bite you right in the butt.

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.

A well observed short story full of detail with a few surprises in store and a final neat twist which I should have seen coming and in a way I did but just didn't quite make the connections.
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.

A cleverly constructed and satisfying short story in which SOCO Eddie Collins finds himself stuck in a lif with two other men whilst on his way to a crime scene.
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

Another great short story from Andrew Barrett. Totally reinforces my reasons (in my head) for not getting in a lift! I love the mixture of seriousness & comedy in these short stories. You really do need an eye for detail in these stories

I received this free for a honest review and I must say I really enjoyed it. It's a short story but really well written and it keeps you gripped to it all the way through.
