Bliss Uncovered

Woooo hoooo!! It’s the weekend!! And I’d like to introduce you to Detective Constable Jimmy Bliss!

Massive thanks to Sarah Hardy of Book On The Bright Side Publicity for inviting me on the blog tour and for my e-copy of Bliss Uncovered. I also downloaded a copy from Amazon.

The Blurb

The bestselling author of the stunning DI Bliss crime series is back – this time with a thrilling prequel novella.

A double life – a single truth.

Fresh out of uniform, DC Jimmy Bliss finds himself at the centre of an undercover sting. Enlisted by a crew of villains to crack a safe, he fears his cover is blown when he’s seen in the wrong place at the wrong time.

But on the night of the job, things run smoothly enough until the gang leader changes the location of the heist. As the job spirals out of control, Bliss has to trust his instincts and buy some time. There’s just one problem: he has no idea if his team know what has become of him.

As the situation escalates, Bliss finds himself at the mercy of a violent criminal who will do anything not to be caught.


What Did I Think?

So, I’ve never made the acquaintance of Jimmy Bliss so starting at the beginning of his career as a detective makes sense even if this is not book 1 of the series. And what an introduction!!

Bliss is a newly appointed detective sent out undercover. His first outing is a test and a half with hardened untrusting criminals to contend with. As I read, I feared for Bliss to the extent that at points I was sat with my hand over my mouth. Would he be found out? Could this inexperienced detective prove his inspector wrong and bag the arrests?!

Despite this being my first meeting with Bliss, I have enjoyed Forder’s writing previously so I knew I would be in for a treat. This introduction to Bliss was short and sharp. With just over 150 pages, Forder has packed a punch into a short amount of time and I thoroughly enjoyed it! I’m looking forward to getting to know Bliss better!
