They say you can always trust a copper. They’re lying.
They lied thirty years ago and they’re still lying today.
A booby-trapped body in a long-abandoned chapel. A scene examination that goes horribly wrong. CSI Eddie Collins and DI Benson are injured and one of the team killed. Eddie is heartbroken and guilt-ridden. And angry.
If you like fast-paced crime thrillers with a forensic slant, raw emotions, and characters that reach out of the book and grab you by the throat, you’ll love Andrew Barrett’s Eddie Collins series.
Ledston Luck is the fourth book in the Eddie Collins series. It works really well as a stand alone but would advise reading the others if you want more of the main characters back ground.
Eddie Collins is one truly complex character. He seems to walk around with the weight of the world on his shoulders. He has so much pent up anger and emotion in him that I didn’t know whether to slap or hug him. I wouldn’t say that he is one of the most likeable characters I have ever come across in a crime series but that doesn’t really matter as one thing he is truly good at, is his job.
This is one guy that is well and truly focused on his job and will go above and beyond to do what he has to do to get results. He isn’t bothered who he upsets which doesn’t win him any brownie points with some of his colleagues. Even getting taken off the job does not stop Eddie.
I really enjoyed the whole story line in this book. A murder from years before opens a whole can of worms causing a dramatic turn of events.
From the start, middle and the end, this author had me well and truly gripped. This is quite a fast paced read, especially towards the end where it was going at full throttle. The author kept the pace up through out the story and had plenty of twists and turns to keep the readers on their toes and to ensure plenty of shocks and surprises.
Ledston Luck is a truly gripping crime book which will definitely appeal to crime/thriller fans. It’s a story that will have you feeling a whole array of emotions whilst leaving your heart racing and feeling breathless. Without a doubt the best in the series by a mile.
My thanks to the author for a copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
Goodreads rating 5/5 stars.
