Delighted to be able to share with you all today the fabulous cover for THE LOCK by Andrew Barrett which will be published on the 21st of January . This is a novella featuring the one and only Eddie Collins and is a stand alone novel.
Before we get to the all important cover reveal though, here is a bit about the man himself and by that I mean the author of course, not Eddie Collins. You will have to read the book if you want to find out more about him, which of course you will want to, believe me!
Andrew Barrett has enjoyed variety in his professional life, from engine-builder to farmer, from Oilfield Service Technician in Kuwait, to his current role of Senior CSI in Yorkshire.
He’s been a CSI since 1996, and has worked on all scene types from terrorism to murder, suicide to rape, drugs manufacture to bomb scenes. One way or another, Andrew’s life revolves around crime.
In 1997 he finished his first crime thriller, A Long Time Dead, and it’s still a readers’ favourite today, some 120,000 copies later, topping the Amazon charts several times. Two more books featuring SOCO Roger Conniston completed the trilogy.
Today, Andrew is still producing high-quality, authentic crime thrillers with a forensic flavour that attract attention from readers worldwide. He’s also attracted attention from the Yorkshire media, having been featured in the Yorkshire Post, and twice interviewed on BBC Radio Leeds.
He’s best known for his lead character, CSI Eddie Collins, and the acerbic way in which he roots out criminals and administers justice. Eddie’s series is four books and two short stories in length, and there’s still more to come.
Andrew is a proud Yorkshireman and sets all of his novels there, using his home city of Leeds as another major, and complementary, character in each of the stories.

Of course I can’t go showing you the cover without letting you know what the book is about, so be fore we get to the reveal, here is the all important blurb.
I’m Eddie Collins, a CSI. I was finishing up at a sudden death in an old house, waiting for the body snatchers to arrive, when I heard a noise from the cellar.
I had time to kill, so I went to investigate.
Turns out I wasn’t the only one with killing on his mind.
Sounds great don’t you think? Can’t wait to read this one myself. Don’t worry, I won’t keep you waiting any longer, though I think it deserves a drum roll first so here you go.
Isn’t it fabulous? We love it! As well as the book coming out on the 21st of January, there will also be a blog tour celebrating the release. Below is a list of dates and stops. Don’t forget to check these fabulous bloggers posts out and find out more about THE LOCK.
