Andrew Christie

Sydney, New South Wales

Andrew Christie waited a long time to start writing. By the time his first novel came out he had spent forty years working as a stagehand, a cameraman, a gardener and a landscape architect. He doesn’t share many traits with John Lawrence, the ex-army character who ties the John Lawrence series together - other than a love of coffee, single malts, and bacon-and-egg rolls.

Andrew writes about Sydney, the city he grew up in, and the city he knows best. When he is not working on the next John Lawrence thriller, Andrew blogs about his quest to eat at every restaurants and café along King Street in Newtown.

Tunnel Vision (A John Lawrence Novel Book 2)

"No one was supposed to get hurt…" Sixteen-year-old Billy Sheehan and his girlfriend, Rashmi, just wanted to make a political statement. It was only meant to be a stunt, but now they’re making headlines across Australia for all the wrong reasons. "Easy money…" Al Munro said that about every job, right up to the moment a bank guard shot him dead. His death brings a pair of vengeful killers down on Al’s friends and family—and on Billy and Rashmi. Now the kids are on the run, not knowing who to trust. "Billy felt the cold breath of the tunnel before they got to it…" Will John Lawrence find Billy and Rashmi in time? Will all three of them make it back into the light of day? A white-knuckle thriller from author Andrew Christie, this second novel in the John Lawrence series takes readers on a wild ride through a dark landscape of guns, gold, and greed.
