Title: Endless Silent Scream by Tony J Forder
Date Published: 9th March 2020
Genre: Police Procedural
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.
I want to thank Sarah Hardy at Books On The Bright Side Publicity for inviting me on this tour and providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This is the sixth book in the DI Bliss series and while it can be read as a standalone I would recommend reading a few of the other books in the series first just as the story does refer to earlier events.
Endless Silent Scream does feel like Bliss’ greatest hits, with a return to his first case when he was assigned to Peterborough, along with guest appearances from a former flame and Bliss’ old bosses and colleagues.
Bliss was on fine form through the book with his trademark grumpy attitude and rule bending ways but we got to see a softer side of him watching the relationship grow between him and Molly who he saves from jumping off a hotel roof.
I did feel there were a couple of minor things that weren’t fully explained (or if they were I may have missed them) but the ending was very satisfying.
Endless Silent Scream is a complex and compelling police procedural, packed full of action, mystery and emotional moments.
