BOOK DESCRIPTION

A skeletal body is unearthed in a wooded area of Peterborough, Cambridgeshire. DI James Bliss, together with DC Penny Chandler, investigate the case and discover that the young, female victim had been relocated from its 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?

 

HERE ARE MY THOUGHTS AND REVIEW

When the skeletal remains of a body are found in the woods DI Jimmy Bliss and DC Penny Chandler are soon on the scene. Although Bliss shows quite a remarkable knowledge of determining the sex and other things on the skeleton his impatience to know more gets the better of him and he calls on Emily Grant, the bone lady. I really liked her. Loved the giddiness she had wanting to share her knowledge on a subject that was a passion as much as a job. 


DI Jimmy Bliss is at times brass with a dry humour and a shady past that some may find difficult to swallow but do stay with him. He is definitely one I shall remember and want to get to know better. He has a great partnership with DC Penny Chandler where they have each other’s backs 100% of the time and believe me she has a good sense of character.


This is a cracking police procedural extremely well researched. At times quite technical but wow did it get my interest as a fascinating read. The story itself was brilliant, what begins with a cover up in the past soon becomes clean up in present day. Someone is determined to get away with murder. More please.
