#BlogBlitz #Review ~ Scream Blue Murder by @TonyJForder @Bloodhoundbook

Mike Lynch is going through hard times. But things get much worse when he witnesses a murder in a lay-by. Snatching the victim’s car in order to get away, Mike soon makes a shocking discovery – the victim’s young daughter and her nanny are hiding in the rear footwell. This is when the real trouble begins.

Mike wants to go to the police, but the nanny, Melissa, wants to delay until the daughter, Charlie, is somewhere safe. Mike agrees to this request before finding out the seriousness of the situation, and just how much danger they are really in.

Who exactly was the man he saw murdered? And who is the man he saw pulling the trigger?

In a situation where nothing is what it seems, Mike will have to fight for his life to protect a woman and a child he doesn’t know. And when the death count rises, he will discover what kind of man he really is.

About the Author

Tony J Forder is the author of the critically acclaimed crime thriller Bad to the Bone, the first in a series featuring DI Jimmy Bliss and DC Penny Chandler. The second book in the series will be released in 2018, with a third currently in progress.

On 19 September 2017, Tony’s dark, psychological crime thriller, Degrees of Darkness, featuring ex-detective Frank Rogers, was also published by Bloodhound Books. This was intended to be a stand-alone novel, but Tony is now considering the possibility of a follow-up.

On 8 November, Bloodhound Books will publish Tony’s new fast-paced action thriller, Scream Blue Murder. This is the first novel in an intended series, and has received praise from both Mason Cross and Matt Hilton.

Some years ago, Tony won a short story competition judged by an editor from Pan Books. The story, Gino’s Bar and Grille, went on to be published in Dark Voices 2, part of the celebrated Pan Book of Horror series. Three further short story sales followed: Book End, published in Dark Voices 4, Character Role, in FEAR magazine, and finally A Grim Story, which featured in A Rattler’s Tale. It was the start of Tony’s publishing journey.

Tony is signed to Bloodhound Books for a minimum of four books, but believes there is much more to come.

My Review

You may recall I was raving about Tony Forder a few weeks ago when I read Degrees of Darkness and couldn’t sing his praises highly enough. So it was a foregone conclusion I would jump on Scream Blue Murder as soon as I had a copy.

So did this live up to my expectations? Yes, it did but it has also proved what a talented writer Tony is. This takes on a different style yet he still manages to excel. 

Holy Moly you are in for the ride of your life with Scream Blue Murder. It begins with a bang and just doesn’t relent. Action packed, race against time, with some extremely nasty folk that I wouldn’t want to meet on a dark night!

Mike Lynch is having the day from hell which only manages to deteriorate further when he innocently stops the car to take a pee and events unfold that begin the ball rolling. I developed a real fondness for Mike, he gives the impression of a grumpy old man who couldn’t give a toss but underneath he is a diamond. Melissa and six year old Charlie are the two people he begrudgingly has to take under his wing. The relationship between the two females is endearing.

This is a real test of honesty and trust in a world of corruption. Yes, it’s a crime thriller but includes plenty of action especially involving MI5 and government agencies along with ex-forces men. A riveting mix of entertainment that won’t allow you to pause for breath. Who can survive the flying bullets and come out unscathed? I really enjoyed it and have no hesitation recommending it. 

Thanks to the author, publisher and Sarah Hardy for my copy and including me in the blog blitz.
