About The Book
DC Jack Warr and his girlfriend Maggie have just moved to London to start a new life together. Though charming, Jack can’t seem to find his place in the world – until he’s drawn into an investigation that turns his life upside down.
In the aftermath of a fire at an isolated cottage, a badly charred body is discovered, along with the burnt remains of millions of stolen, untraceable bank notes.
Jack’s search leads him deep into a murky criminal underworld – a world he finds himself surprisingly good at navigating. But as the line of the law becomes blurred, how far will Jack go to find the answers – and what will it cost him?
In BURIED, it’s time to meet DC Jack Warr as he digs up the deadly secrets of the past . . .
When the police discover a body in the aftermath of a fire, they would never have guessed that would be linked to an old robbery case.
This had been a very interesting and well written thriller, there isn’t a moment where the reader is not wanting to know more about the case or the main character, the plot is addictive and intriguing, you almost feel trapped inside the book!
The main character of the story is DC Jack Warr who has just moved to London with his girlfriend, so this will be his first case. He is a man that loves his family and nothing stops him to discover the truth, the case will be more personal than he ever thought after a confession of his dying father… Is he ready to discover the truth?
The story is told in present, but there are some flashbacks from the past and the moment of the robbery, making the case more complex but entertaining at the same time. In the beginning all the information seems a little bit too much, but as soon as you enter to the story everything fits in their place, don’t worry!
I’ll admit that I really enjoyed this book, I can’t say that I had read any of the previous books of this author, Lynda LaPlante, but I can say that I will follow the new series with DC Jack Warr as the main character, I can’t wait to discover more about him and his co-workers; they make a great team!
I would recommend this book to any thriller lover or anyone who wants to read a good book, Buried is your next read, I can assure you.
