Bliss and Chandler have a great working relationship. The bond between them is so enjoyable to read. Chandler is a like a mother hen around Bliss which at times he finds annoying but I think he also appreciates it.
Bliss has had a hard time of it losing his wife as well as struggling to come to terms with a health issue. He really does have a lot on his plate. I have to admit that I wasn’t to sure about him to start with. As much as I liked him, I found him in some ways to be weak but the further into the story I got, it reminded me that we are all human and by the end I loved his character.
There is another character that forms part of the team which is Dunne. It felt very much like the three musketeers with them all working on the case. I really enjoyed watching how they worked and to what each one brought to it.
Bad To The Bone is a really good crime thriller. I did not expect how twisted it would get towards the end. The majority of the story is set at a steady pace until towards the end, when I was sent hurdling at full speed. A highly enjoyable read and can’t wait for more in the series.
My thanks to Bloodhound Books for an advanced readers copy. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
