No Time To Die by Andrew Barrett – Review.

Book Description:

When CSI Eddie Collins finds a dead woman in his house, he thinks life can’t get any worse, until a violent gang ties his hands together and puts a gun to his head. And this time there’s no way out.

Operation Domino is the investigation into gang boss, Slade Crosby, and his connection to an undercover officer’s death. But tampered evidence kills the investigation’s progress, and with Eddie gone, Slade is in the clear.

There’s only one way to get Slade in cuffs, but it won’t be easy…

My Review:

This is my first read of one of Barrett’s books.

Written in third-person, past-tense throughout, No Time To Die utilises a nice mix of short chapter/long chapter, pacing the novel nicely. Hitting all the beats readers of this type of novel expect, whilst displaying an unusual level of authenticity, the novel is a solid entry into the genre.

Displaying good technical skill, the writer is clearly seasoned and unafraid to take the odd risk in plot line and narrative.

With its familiar structure, whilst delivering a pacey read, No Time To Die will please readers of this type of novel.

No Time To Die is available now from Amazon.
