Wow Sarah Hardy thanks for the invite to participate, a great book and a fantastic day, how can it possibly get any better.

This is when the real trouble begins.
Mike wants to go to the police, but the nanny, Melissa, wants to delay until the daughter, Charlie, is somewhere safe. Mike agrees to this request before finding out the seriousness of the situation, and just how much danger they are really in.
Who exactly was the man he saw murdered? And who is the man he saw pulling the trigger?
In a situation where nothing is what it seems, Mike will have to fight for his life to protect a woman and a child he doesn’t know. And when the death count rises, he will discover what kind of man he really is.

Well I’m ticked pink to have had a chance to read Scream Blue Murder, a riveting read that spirals out of this world and back again, a perfect cryptic plot that will have your head spinning.
Scream Blue Murder by Tony J. Forder an adrenaline packed thriller with a prologue which will blow you away. As we follow the path of Mike Lynch, a man who is down on his luck, driving back from a failed interview Mike stumbles across a gangland shooting, execution style, but is it all as it seems. Escaping the horrifying scene, Mike discovers Melissa and Charlie hiding in the car, now he’s not on his own, escaping for their lives Mike has baggage he must protect.
Following the plot I couldn’t believe how many times I was dragged through the scenes kicking and screaming, hiding my eyes, peering through my fingers, not knowing who was involved, so many fingers pointed in different directions. Wow I loved it.
Mike has a hidden character, who is Mike? I found Mike to be downtrodden and dejected to begin with, but with Melissa’s and Charlie’s safety in hands a certain roughness in his character develops as the book progresses. Mike is certainly one for the girlies out there, a very likeable, engaging and a tiny bit moody soul, a fantastically charming hero which I think we would all quite happily allow to save us.
Tony J. Forder has written a complex plot which will delve deep into the darkest corners of your mind, stuffed full of tension seizing every thought process and sending ripples of electric thrills through your imagination.
Thanks go to Tony J. Forder and Bloodhound Books for the advanced readers copy in exchange for my unbiased and honest review. Cheers Sarah Hardy for another cracking book to review and my spot on the Blog Blitz.
