Publisher's Summary

A skeletal body is unearthed in a wooded area of Peterborough, Cambridgeshire. DI James Bliss, together with DC Penny Chandler, investigates the case and discovers that the young female victim had been relocated from her original burial site. A witness is convinced that a young female was struck by a vehicle back in the summer of 1990 and that police attended the scene. However, no record exists of either the accident or the reported victim. 

As the case develops, two retired police officers are murdered. The two are linked with others who were on duty at the time a road accident was reported. As Bliss and Chandler delve deeper into the investigation, they start to question whether senior officers may have been involved in the murder of the young women who was buried in the woods. As each link in the chain is put under duress, so is Bliss, who clashes with superiors and the media. When his team receives targeted warnings, Bliss will need to decide whether to drop the case or to pursue those responsible. 

Will Bliss walk away in order to keep his career intact, or will he fight no matter what the cost? And is it possible the killer is much closer than they imagined?

A Very Pleasant Surprise..!!

This book was a very pleasant surprise.
I had no expectations from this author as I had not run across his work before.
It was well crafted, with a good strong narration...I will be buying the next in this series..

Terrific New Series

A relative newcomer to Audible,Tony J Forder has produced one of the best new series I have listened to in some time.

Although we have seen the old copper up against the new style of policing theme before, Forder skillfully develops his characters with an excellent narrative woven around a complex and interesting story that holds the listeners attention throughout. Gratuitous violence and unbelievable plot outcomes are replaced with a gritty creative story leaving room for the readers imagination to fill in the details as DI Bliss works the case in a logical credible and sometimes humorous manner.

I would be remiss not to mention Greg Waglands superb narration as he dispenses with the need to identify characters with anything other than his voice.

Once hooked - about 5 minutes in - I binged on all three novels in the series. As good as this one is, the sequels are even better. Forget the minimal number of ratings and grab this book. Be sure to leave some time when you do so as I found it hard to put down..
