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.

The Death Of Justice by Tony J Forder – Book Review

PUBLISHERS BLURB 

To keep a secret hidden you must bury the truth

One night. Two shootings. Two victims.

When DI Bliss arrives at the scene of the second murder, he recognises the same three-shot pattern as the first. But there is one major difference: the second victim has been decapitated, the head nowhere to be found. When a second headless corpse is discovered the following day, Bliss and his team realise the killer is on a spree – and he’s not done yet. 

After Bliss links the killings and forms a task force with officers from Lincolnshire, they uncover further disturbing news: the murders are not the first in the series – there are four more headless victims, and the Lincolnshire team believe they know why. Not only that, they are also convinced that more potential victims are on the killer’s list. 

In a race against time to save further loss of life, Bliss constantly finds himself one step behind and chasing shadows. In order to flush out the hired assassin, he and his team have no choice but to put their own lives at risk. But will everyone survive?

MY REVIEW 

This is Book #5 in the DI Bliss series. 

When Kelly Gibson’s body is found, shot three times, DI Bliss and his team are called in to investigate. Kelly was a colleague from the communications suite…

We again meet DI Bliss, DI Mia Short, DS Chandler, DS Bishop and DC Ansari, as the investigation starts, another murder takes place…..again 3 shots, but the head is missing!

As more murders are committed, the team are in a race against time with a Killer always seemingly one step ahead…but how? Is there a leak on the team?

This is a brutal case with links at an old case……but why has it taken so long for this retribution?

Another gripping thriller from Tony J Forder, with a compelling plot that also shows the vulnerable side of the characters. Brilliant.
