LEDSTON LUCK – Andrew Barrett

EDDIE COLLINS series # 4.

Andrew Barrett is now on the top shelf and compares well with any of the best in the crime thriller genre. I am a fan.

Ledston Luck - E C #4

He is striking a nice balance with enough necessary expert detail which is so easy to over-do when the writer really knows his subject.

His protagonist, Eddie Collins, is a singularly stubborn character who sticks his nose, and often to its detriment, his whole face and even his life, where it doesn’t belong. He doesn’t have a life, except his job; a CSI or Socco, rooting out the tiniest of indicative details from a crime scene and hounding them to death. He skates on the edge – nay, beyond the edge – of his superiors tolerance for insubordination.

The tension is drum-skin tight, the characters, good and evil, are well drawn and credible, the finale is explosive. The couldn’t-put-it-down cliché is spot on. This is highly recommended crime fiction. More please, Mr. Barrett!

Thank you for this Kindle Edition from the author.
