Buried Summary

Buried: The thrilling new crime series introducing Detective Jack Warr by Lynda La Plante

SOME THINGS SHOULD REMAIN BURIED . . . The gripping first book in a brand new thriller series by the Queen of Crime Drama, Lynda La Plante. __________________ 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 . . . __________________ PRAISE FOR BURIED: 'It's quite a challenge to make a detective constable the lead character in a crime novel, but Lynda La Plante does a cracking job of it in BURIED. DC Jack Warr is clearly destined for higher things, and I look forward to following his progress' - PETER ROBINSON, No. 1 Sunday Times bestselling author of the DCI Banks series 'A compelling, clever plot with a brilliant cast of diverse characters. Utterly riveting' - RACHEL ABBOTT, million-selling author of ONLY THE INNOCENT 'Lynda La Plante practically invented the thriller' Karin Slaughter

Buried Reviews

A compelling, clever plot with a brilliant cast of diverse characters. Utterly riveting * RACHEL ABBOTT, million-selling author of ONLY THE INNOCENT *
It's quite a challenge to make a detective constable the lead character in a crime novel, but Lynda La Plante does a cracking job of it in Buried. DC Jack Warr is clearly destined for higher things, and I look forward to following his progress * PETER ROBINSON, No. 1 Sunday Times bestselling author of the DCI Banks series *
Lynda La Plante practically invented the thriller * KARIN SLAUGHTER, No.1 Sunday Times bestselling author of THE GOOD DAUGHTER *
An effortless blend of James Patterson pacing and Martina Cole British grit. * CrimeTime *
'Packed with revealing flashbacks, fast-paced action, an unforgettable cast of characters, including the restless, unpredictable Jack Warr, and La Plante's dark, satirical brand of northern humour, Buried is a masterclass in visual storytelling.' * Lancashire Post *
'This has a gritty and twisty plot which is so engrossing, but for me the real marvel is the characters. They are all so well developed and their personal lives and stories are heartbreaking at times, so well written you forget this is fiction.' * Orlando Books Blog *
'I enjoyed the pace of the book, not too fast but not too slow either. For anyone who has read the series Widows by Ms Plante they will recognise some of the characters especially Dolly Rawlins. This is a well thought out and executed story, with a couple of things I didn't see coming.' * Jackie's Reading Corner *
'In a book with numerous twists and turns, we were treated to a proper 'gasp' moment at the end, which, although shocking, was in-keeping with what we had read about Jack. This set up the next book nicely and I can't wait to read where Lynda La Plante takes DC Warr next. Buried is a book that I can definitely imagine on the small screen, so I have my fingers crossed that it will be optioned for TV. This promises to be another huge hit for the author.' * Go Buy The Book *
Book of the Week: With high stakes and a pacy narrative you'll be racing to the end * Woman's Weekly *
