Today I am thrilled to be part of the Blog Tour for ENDLESS SILENT SCREAM. A big thankyou to Sarah at Book on the Bright Side Publicity and the author Tony Forder for inviting me on the tour. This is another brilliant addition to the Detective Bliss series that will appeal to all readers of crime fiction.
Author – Tony J Forder
Publisher – Spare Nib Books
Genre – Crime Fiction
Publication Date – 9th March 2020
From the author of the bestselling DI Bliss crime series comes another gripping police procedural thriller that will have readers hooked from the stunning first page to the very last.
He saved her once. Can he do it again?
When DI Bliss prevents fifteen-year-old Molly from jumping from a hotel roof, he has no idea their paths will cross again. A county lines mule, Molly is questioned by the drugs squad, but Bliss becomes convinced she is in danger and attempts to have her relocated. A local drug dealer and a London-based enforcer have other ideas.
Meanwhile, the remains of a freelance journalist are discovered alongside an archaeological find, which brings an old flame back into Bliss’s life. It’s only a matter of time before reports emerge linking the murdered journalist with the police, putting pressure on the Major Crimes team to find the killer.
Bliss is torn between the two investigations. Desperate to move Molly to safety before she can be reached by those who want her silenced, he is blinded to other dangers.
The stunning DI Bliss series of fast-paced police thrillers will appeal to fans of authors like Michael Connelly, Joy Ellis, Peter James, Robert Bryndza and Angela Marsons. Tony J Forder is also the bestselling author of Degrees of Darkness, Scream Blue Murder and Cold Winter Sun.
Although this is book 6 in the brilliant Detective Bliss series by Tony Forder they do work well as stand alone.
While waiting for a therapy appointment Bliss is enjoying a quiet coffee when a call comes in about a threatened suicide. Being close by Bliss makes his way to the top of a tower block to try to prevent a tragedy. What he finds on roof is a young girl dressed only in a nightdress and covered in blood preparing to end her life. And so we meet Molly. A young girl who society has failed. Forced into drug trafficking as a means to survive this kid has learned to survive in a world of violence and abuse. Finally reaching breaking point she finds that she has limited choices: end her own life or have it ended for her in a violent and painful way. Can Bliss save her?
Bliss has survived tragedy in his personal life with the murder of his wife and more recently the loss of a team member. His belief is to make the country as safe as possible via his job. He is well thought of by his team and superiors. Molly touches him in an unexpected way as he pulls out all the stops to try to keep her safe.
While this isn’t a fast paced read it is certainly gripping as I devoured every page. Fighting top notch lawyers and trying to make Social Services appreciate how dangerous the situation with Molly is. Bliss finds himself trying to outthink the drug lords and their ‘enablers’ to get Molly to safety and the wheels of justice in motion.
A fantastic read I am looking forward to more in this series.
