Scream Blue Murder by Tony J Forder @TonyJForder #BlogBlitz @Bloodhoundbook #Review

I'm delighted to be one of the stops on the blog blitz for Scream Blue Murder by Tony J Forder. Today I will be sharing my review but first of all let's take a look at the description for the book...

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.

After reading Degrees of Darkness I couldn't wait to read Tony J Forder's next book. Luckily I didn't have to wait too long and I eagerly picked up Scream Blue Murder. Where to start well all I can say is that my heart was pumping as fast as Mike's must have been it was such a good opening to this story. I kept thinking what would I do in the same situation and this continued pretty much all the way through. This story had me questioning all the events it was like a great big puzzle and I couldn't wait to see the it all play put.

Secrets and intrigue are intricately weaved into this story and I was constantly wondering what was in store next. The way that Mike reacts to every situation is brilliant and even if mistakes are made he always tries his best to come up with something. The twists and turns were perfect, sorry for being pretty vague with the storyline but it would be a shame to spoil the plot.

Scream Blue Murder is pretty intense at times and it's safe to say I was sitting straight up on my sofa waiting for what would happen next. The characters are well written so much so that I was completely wrapped up in their crazy situation. There is tension galore but also some lesser moments of action where the characters personalities are revealed even more which I loved.

Take a deep breath and prepare yourself for a brilliant rollercoaster ride of a story!

With thanks to Sarah at Bloodhound Books for the invite to join the tour and a copy of the book. This is my honest and unbiased opinion.

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.
