Hidden by Roger Price @RAPriceAuthor @BOTBSPublicity #BlogTour #Hidden #CrimeThriller #BookReview

Firstly I wish to thank Sarah Hardy of Books on the Bright Side Publicity and Promo for inviting me on the Blog Tour for Hidden by Roger Price

Hidden (The Badge and the Pen Book 3) by [Price, Roger A]


Vinnie’s romantic holiday did not go as planned. There was an assault, his companion was threatened and the police asked them to leave.

And when Vinnie returns to his police job in Manchester, things don’t get much better, as he finds himself at the heart of an investigation that stretches from Manchester to all corners of Europe. Women are being trafficked into the UK and forced into prostitution, and while the police are diligent in their enquiries, they seem to have a rogue in their midst.

As events unravel, the lines between good and bad, police and criminals, seem to become more and more blurred… and the stakes for all involved are getting higher.

Hidden is Book 3 in Roger Price’s the badge and the pen series, but it can equally be read as a novel in its own right. Existing fans of Vinnie and Christine are bound to love it, but Hidden is also perfect for crime and police fiction lovers, and anybody who loves a fast-paced, gripping story.

I really got on with Vinnie and Christine straight away who seemed to have every obstacle possible thrown in front of their relationship no matter where in the world they were.

Even on holiday abroad a good deed to try to help someone in trouble puts Vinnie on the wrong side of the law and an opportunity for him and Christine to finally get some quality time together cut short. At least Christine came away with a personal take on a story for the paper she worked for.

The big news back home centred around human trafficking and murder for Vinnie with Christine never far from the next big headline. She is a very feisty woman, slim, beautiful and extremely determined to get that exclusive scoop. But no matter what leads the police get there was something very wrong, as the bad guys are always one step ahead.

I loved the characters in this story who had been brought to life with perfection. Both Vinnie and Christine in careers where they never turn off but have an understanding of each others commitment, with Christine often being a blinkered character only seeing the goal she is after which makes Vinnie her hero more than once. I am truly hooked on this series, excellent storyline and colourful interactions of the team. Wonderful!

I wish to thank Book on the BrightSide for an e-copy of this book which I have reviewed honestly.

I was born in Bury, raised in Whitley Bay, and have lived in Lancashire since I was thirteen. Currently living in Preston, I served for over thirty-one years with the Lancashire Constabulary, the Regional Crime Squad and the National Crime Squad. I retired in the rank of detective inspector in charge of a covert unit, which received local and national acclaim for its successes in engaging those who openly sold Class A drugs, such as heroin and crack cocaine.
Prior to this I led the C.I.D. in Preston for a short while and before that I was in charge of a dedicated informant unit. Previous experiences include work on many murder investigations and other serious crimes, as well as time spent on drug squads. I have served around the region, country, and overseas.
My work on the National Crime Squad took me across Europe and to the Far East. I have been commended on four occasions. I now write fiction based in-part on my experiences, and in-part from my fevered imagination.
My First novel, By Their Rules, was followed by A New Menace, before I joined Endeavour Media with a new ‘Badge & the Pen’ series of crime thrillers which brings together maverick DI Vinnie Palmer and sassy investigative news reporter, Christine Jones. Unlikely bedfellows who compliment each other as they seek the truth but from differing agendas.
The first in the series is Nemesis, where they hunt down an escaped psychopath, followed by Vengeance, where the troubles of Northern Ireland of twenty years ago remerge in the criminal underworld of north west England.
HIDDEN, is the third where Vinnie and Christine face the worst of criminals, as they hunt those responsible for people trafficking, forced servitude and prostitution, in a race-against-time thriller.
I have also written an original returning police drama for TV which is going out on submission as we speak, via my agent Olav Wyper at SMA Talent Ltd. McCall and Stamp are trouble-shooters from the dark world of covert policing; solving problems where nothing is black or white: only grey!
