    When Becky arrived home from work, she found the door ajar and sounds coming from upstairs. But the sight of her husband?s body almost sent her into meltdown. Chris was quite obviously dead, and she knew if she didn?t hide or get away, she would be next. Becky was given one wee...

    The End of Lies, the end of excitement, the end of gasping and cringing, and the end of my first FIVE STAR 2018 book! What a book to start the year off with. First of all, I'd like to thank Bloodhound Books for sending me a copy via Instafreebie to read in exchange for an honest rev...

    I am a big fan of this author, especially his Eddie Collins CSI series so when I heard he had something a little different on offer, I jumped at the chance to read it. With an established and popular character such as Eddie, you may think that this is a brave move by the author, especi...

    Wow!! This book was certainly a surprise, and I loved it. When I first started reading this story, I really thought it was heading in the one direction, however, Andrew Barrett has done an amazing job with the twist and turns throughout the book. Great characters, along with a very edg...

    This is a brilliant thought out plot that keeps getting stronger as you read. It really kept my attention. It?s got a super start to it that immediately grabs you. There?s something dodgy and dangerous that Beckys husband Chris wants to get involved in that would make tons o...

    Librarian On Duty. Enter: Becky Rose who sorts and catalogues books by day and swears like a smutty-mouthed truck driver at all other times. Can't even find all of her expletives in the dictionary. She's been known to throw back a whiskey or three in the evening hours alongside the ...

    I really enjoyed this novel. Barrett is very good at writing flawed characters that the reader can empathise with. Fabulous plot twist about three quarters of the way through. If you like crime/mystery/thriller books and haven?t yet read Andrew Barrett you are missing out. ...

    This is a terrific,suspenseful story, that had me on the edge of my seat while I read it and I was unable to put it down! A great mystery that reels you in while twisting and turning every which way. What a dilemma our librarian Becky Rose has for herself, after coming home from work...

    I will never look at a librarian in the same way again. More twists than in a bowl of spagetti. Some humour, plenty of gruesome scenes. This is a quite a change from this authors normal fare. It works for him and me. I will be looking out for more from him. ...

    Do not read this book?? unless you want to be gripped from the go, spun around a few times and thrown completely off course. Think of one of those rides, say at a well known American theme park (see ch16) . You sit in a comfortable seat, feel relaxed and then wonder what on earth h...

    This is a killer of a thriller! I loved every moment spent within the pages of this brilliant novel. It?s got more twists and turns than a roller coaster and did a great job of getting my reading mojo back after somewhat of a slump. This is no ordinary crime thriller. The plot ...

    An excellent story. Not his normal CSI story, but a great plot with twists and turns throughout. Don't start this book unless you have time to finish it. It's hard to put down. I thought I knew how it was going to end, boy, was I wrong. ...

    I thought this book 'The End of Lives' to be a real grabber- had me at the first few lines. I liked the fact of a female 'protagonist', ha-ha. I also liked the changes back and forth from present to past; I feel it helped to keep the reader engaged and guessing, although I know some pe...

    Becky: "Throughout this whole charade -and that's exactly what this was, a charade - I'd wrestled to the death with a madman on an old ammunition site, been stabbed in the boob, been beaten up and almost strangled by a copper, been slapped, and stabbed in the neck by my one only true b...

    Goodness me. I have just finished and I have no idea how to sum up this book. I'm not keen on swearing, you may not be, but look beyond that, because this book is a cracker. It will take you to a world of killers and women beaters (another thing that had me wincing), to a world of rats...

    A wonderfully crafted story. Right from the first scene you are left off balance with ever spiralling twists and turns. Great characters, along with a very edgy plot, made this a very entertaining thriller. I strongly recommend that you don't start this book unless you have time to fin...

    This is one of those books that starts slowly, get?s you engrossed then hits you with an ending you don?t see coming. Again another feisty female. I really liked reading this book and if you like a good thriller then you will too. Highly recommended must read. ...

    I am so glad I came across Andrew Barrett's books! The End of Lies is quite the thriller. It has everything: plot twists all over the place, an insanely wonderful plot, and a female "protagonist" like no other. This is definitely worth a read. ...
