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.

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 blood on your hands.

Sign up using the form and you can look forward to receiving The Third Rule – CSI Eddie Collins series opener, and The Lift, a first-person short story by Eddie Collins himself as he takes a ride in a lift that turns into so much more.

Andrew’s quotes

"Use your intuition. Picture how things happen, why they happen. Don’t stick rigidly to first impressions, and once you’ve read the rule book, throw it away. Better still, burn the bastard."— Andrew Barrett
