Dence recovery techniues at a level of detail that I found fascinating but might be too much for some readers and a protagonist who was difficult "to warm to There were few likeable characters in fact and the only humour the constant " warm to There were few likeable characters in fact and the only humour the constant colleagues hurl at one another The constant grime stink and run down buildings and the incessantly atrocious weather were pretty depressing too I found it hard to believe that people who have worked with Roger for nearly ten years are
So Uick To Believe He S A Serial Killer And uick to believe he s a serial killer and to countenance that evidence could ve been planted or that knowing he s really good at his job they think he would be so careless as to leave said evidence For a smart guy Roger comes across as ridiculously naive The perpetrator their motivation and methods were so obvious that I spent most of the book hoping to be proved wrong I was wrong about how it would end though there s a bit of a cliffhanger and plenty to be resolved in the following books which I do plan to read when I get a chanceOverall this is still worth a read but if you haven t read anything else by Andrew Barrett you should definitely try his later books before deciding he s not for you This book has been on my TBR list for a long long time I finally gave it a go and did not regret itAn addictive police procedural with Roger Conniston as the leading SOCO specialist Written with a lot of inside knowledge Kept me wondering what would happen next And with a rather nsuspected ending. On must prove the evidence was planted wondering what would happen next And with a rather nsuspected ending. On must prove the evidence was planted manipulated But how can he do that from inside a cell especially when his prime suspect is a high ranking police officer and not even his friends believe ,
Another winner from Andrew Barrett I don t know when I ve found an author that I enjoy as much as I do Mr Barrett I have done nothing but read his books for the last 3 weeks I only wish he could write as fast as I can read Where to begin Roger Conniston is a SOCO with the Yorkshire police He is p for promotion along with his friend Chris They re both being trialled for the job He is also secretly following Inspector Weston who he knows is dealing in stolen weapons with a view to seeing him arrestedA couple of murders where women have their throats slashed are keeping the SOCOs Busy But Roger Also Has but Roger also has sick wife to deal with You start to get the feeling that something very fishy is going on And soon Roger is arrested for the second murder Evidence puts him at the scene Although he protests he is innocent he is thrown into a holding cell only to have some npleasant visitations from Weston Is Weston trying to frame him for this murder to get "him off his tailRoger realises his only hope is to clear his name and find " off his tailRoger realises his only hope is to clear his name and find who framed him how and why He esc I absolutely loved reading this crime at first I was not totally in the book as there were too many characters names that I had to keep in mind but the I read it the I was intrigued and I just couldn t stop I really recommend this book as it is worth reading for those who like crime stories I will surely be reading of this writer as this is not his first book that I read and I appreciated even his previous storie. First book in The Dead Trilogy A Long Time Dead asks is forensic evidence incontrovertible How would you feel if forensic evidence incorrectly incriminated you In the world of crime scene investigat.
