MY REVIEW

#6 in the DI Bliss series and yes, it can be read as a stand-alone, but you are missing out on a great series.

Endless Silent Scream starts with Bliss stopping a potential suicide. He manages to stop Molly jumping off a bridge. He feels an affinity with the young woman and really wants to help her (showing his softer side), but is there more going on in her life that’s putting her in danger? Can Bliss save her from more harm?

This is so fast paced you’ll need to take a breather now and then! Mixed with the camaraderie of Bliss and his team, their banter and humour adds lighter moments to this tense tale.

A complex plot, superb writing and great characters will have you hooked from the first page. Brilliant.

Thank you to Sarah at Book On The Bright Side for the opportunity to participate in this blog tour, for the promotional materials and a free copy of the ebook. This is my honest, unbiased review.
