Eddie is a crime scene investigator (CSI), working a murder scene in the pouring rain at night and having difficulties with the local detectives.
He realises that he has seen the victim before.
When he returns to his office, he finds a cryptic death threat.
He has received threats before from guilty and/or angry culprits, but this note is so short and (not so) sweet that it unnerves him.
But that is nothing compared to what actually develops, and how things gradually dawn on him.
Despite being only a short story, this is one of the most enjoyable crime thrillers I have read. Lots of suspense and humour from Eddie’s point of view, and nice twists at the end.
A very clever play with words combined with complex but believable characters kept me enraptured from start to finish.
Never quite expecting what would come next, the author holds our complete attention , trying always to second guess our expected reaction to a chain of events. Even down to the very end, asking our villain (in a Freudian way) for a cigarette. Loved it, it's use of a mixed ensemble of characters even down to grammar correction, had me spellbound but laughing simultaneously. Thoroughly enjoyable and recommend to all
Thought it would be just a run of the mill type police story but found myself unable to stop reading, had to find out what happens to Eddie.
Great story, great suspense, great humor, great ending.
Recommend you read this and then get more CSI Eddie Collins books.
Gritty, grimy and great British storytelling at its best!
