What people are saying about Ledston Luck.
“Andrew writes with a wry sense of humour that bubbles just below the surface, although dark humour also runs through the heavily-detailed book. The detailing shows his experience as a senior CSI. But cleverly blended into the story so that it doesn’t come across as a police manual.
There is so much anger coming off Eddie Collins, the main character.
He is belligerent, boastful, and arrogant. (Eddie’s own words). He make enemies easily but once he has a puzzle to solve, or a death, there is no one more guaranteed to get to the bottom of it than Eddie Collins. In a job he is dedicated to, he is determined there will only ever be one winner. Justice.
For him, the dead come before the living.”
Robin Roughley – author of the DS Lasser series
