The bestselling author of the compelling DI Bliss crime series is back with another stunning novel.
WHEN DEATH BECOMES THE KINDEST CUT OF ALL
When slices of flesh and body parts are discovered in different areas of the country, DI Bliss and his team are tasked with running the operation. After Bliss realises the victims have been subjected to a specific form of torture, it leads him to a cold case involving the brutal and bloody murder of a woman in London twenty-six years earlier.
As the team discover links between their victims, the murdered woman, and gangland crime, they begin a dangerous investigation into both the past and the present. But Bliss is stumped, unable to decide if the current spate of mutilations are acts of revenge or the result of ageing criminals seeking to hide their despicable actions. Following a leak to the media, Bliss’s reaction may have dire consequences.
With the hunt for the victims at fever point, Bliss uncovers evidence steering him in the direction of one particular individual. The only problem being, his prime suspect is the one person it cannot possibly be. When Bliss orders a sting operation, the astonishing truth is revealed. And that’s when things really start to go wrong…
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.
Usually I’m not keen on a series going on too long. However when it comes to DI Bliss I hope we get many more stories of him and his excellent team.
Again this author gripped me from start to finish. I was on the edge of my seat reading this. Now I’m not gonna go into the storyline as the author kindly gave us enough in the blurb. DI Bliss and his team are back with with one of their most complex and challenging cases. I love we get to see into Bliss personal life as well. It adds so much to knowing and liking this character even more.
So what I will say is you gotta read this story. Actually go back if you haven’t and read the previous books. Each and every one of these stories are brilliant. If you have read them get reading this you won’t regret it. They can be read as stand-alone but seriously why would you do that as they are all so good.
Slow Slicing is on the darker side with some scenes that will leave you gasping. I’ve just finished and already I’m waiting for more from this author- yes he is that good !!!
