Bliss Uncovered by Tony J. Forder – Book Review

PUBLISHERS BLURB 

The bestselling author of the stunning DI Bliss crime series is back – this time with a thrilling prequel novella.

A double life – a single truth.

Fresh out of uniform, DC Jimmy Bliss finds himself at the centre of an undercover sting. Enlisted by a crew of villains to crack a safe, he fears his cover is blown when he’s seen in the wrong place at the wrong time.

But on the night of the job, things run smoothly enough until the gang leader changes the location of the heist. As the job spirals out of control, Bliss has to trust his instincts and buy some time. There’s just one problem: he has no idea if his team know what has become of him.

As the situation escalates, Bliss finds himself at the mercy of a violent criminal who will do anything not to be caught.

MY REVIEW 

This is #8 in the DI Bliss series, it is a prequel novella and can be read as a stand-alone.

Bliss Uncovered is a flashback to Bliss’ early career in the Police. It’s 1991 and DC Bliss has joined CID, he hopes this change will help him build a life with Hazel his girlfriend and in his eyes the perfect woman.

He starts working undercover and becomes part of a gang planning a ‘job’, he’s also working his normal cases as a DC. 

This novella really builds the background to Bliss and how he has grown into the man he now is, stubborn, tenacious and dogged in his determination to get to the truth.

Tony J Forder has created a fantastic, well rounded character in Bliss and I loved this look into his early career days. It is also a twisty nail biter of a thriller, that adds more depth to this marvellous character. Such a great addition to one of my favourite series.

Thank you to BOTBS for the opportunity to be part of this blog tour, for the promotional material and an eARC of Bliss Uncovered.
