Review: The Pain of Strangers by Andrew Barrett @AndrewBarrettUK

The Pain of Strangers

CSI Eddie Collins #1

by Andrew Barrett

Published: February 11, 2022

Publisher: The Ink Foundry

Genre: Mystery, Thriller, Suspense


When damaged people reach positions of power, there is no hope for the innocent.

In 1987, Norton Bailey became known as the Madman of Mabgate. A damaged person in a position of power, he built a machine to take care of his problems and used money as bait.

CSI Eddie Collins is feeling alone and adrift. Even work is unreliable and tense, and brings conflict with bad people. One damaged person in particular seeks to choose how Eddie, and the victims he tries to protect, will die.

Is there still no hope for the innocent?

Forensic evidence has always lit up the way, but now the light shines dimly. It’s just bright enough to illuminate the fight of Eddie’s life.

My Review:

The Pain of Strangers is a great introduction to the world of CSI Eddie Collins. The Pain of Strangers is Eddie’s story and basically tells us how his life went after the death of his son. Eddie has a job that he more or less likes very much or so he spends more time doing it than at home with his family.

Eddie likes his job very much as he likes helping people. He will go above and beyond to help someone if they deserve it. Eddie is very good at his job. But Eddie is having a hard time dealing with his son’s death which any parent would. This is why Eddie pours so much of himself into his work.

The Pain of Strangers is a fast-paced read that kept me on the edge of my seat from the very first page. It is filled with lots of mystery that will keep you hanging on from one page to the next. I am a big fan of Eddie Collins and the work he does. I enjoy all the crime scenes. I like when Eddie is investigating the crime scenes I can just imagine all of it in my head as the descriptions are so vivid.

I sorely enjoyed reading The Pain of Strangers and can’t wait to read more of Eddie Collins in future books! I highly recommend The Pain of Strangers to all mystery, thriller, and suspense fans! Grab your copy of The Pain of Strangers today!
