Having thoroughly enjoyed Andrew Barrett’s last book, ‘Ledston Luck’, I was thrilled when I found out that he was publishing a short story and jumped at the chance of taking part in the blog tour. ‘The Note’ was released as an eBook on the 5th May.
Eddie Collins is at a murder scene. It’s raining, it’s late and he’s feeling uncomfortable. He feels like he is being watched but when he turns around no one is there.
Back at the office Eddie finds a death threat on his desk amongst his paperwork. Scary! He can’t think who could have sent it to him but he’s about to find out.
I don’t often read short stories but I so needed to know what Eddie Collins was getting up to. I really like the way Andrew Barrett writes and this book definitely did not disappoint. It was an exciting and gripping read and for a short story there was a lot to it. In ‘The Note’ you get to learn a little bit more about Eddie Collins and what he went through in the past. So descriptive is this story I could actually feel the atmosphere in Eddie Collin’s house. This is spine tingling stuff.
Eddie Collins as a character is great. He doesn’t take any nonsense from work colleagues and he stands his ground. I’m sure a lot of us wish we could be like that. Perhaps Eddie could give us some lessons.
I really hope that Andrew Barrett writes more short stories as I think Eddie Collins has a lot more to reveal.
I give this book 5 out of 5.
