Thrillers written by a CSI

Do you like your crime thrillers to have a forensic element that adds to the realism? Do you like your lead character to be intense and unafraid to take on authority?

Andrew writes precisely that kind of crime thriller, and has done since 1996, about the same time he became a CSI in Yorkshire.

His thrillers live inside the police domain, but predominantly feature CSIs (or SOCOs, as they used to known). Here’s your chance to walk alongside SOCO Roger Conniston and CSI Eddie Collins as they do battle with the criminals that you lock your doors to keep out. This is as real as it gets without getting your hands bloody.

Ebooks and paperbacks are available from Amazon, and ebooks only from Apple (iBooks), Barnes & Noble (Nook), and Kobo. Scroll through the titles below.

How much trust can you put in forensic evidence?
