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 . . .
Lynda La Plante is back and I am delighted to take part in the blog tour for her brand new fantastic novel, Buried.
A fire leads to the discovery of a body and the money from an old heist. Enter DC Jack Warr, the protagonist of this new series by Lynda La Plante. Jack Warr has recently joined the Met, after moving from Devon to London with his girlfriend Maggie. While Jack tries to figure out the truth about the case, he has his own personal problems: his adoptive father is dying and his search for his real father quickly becomes an obsession.
I really liked the characters of Jack Warr and his girlfriend Maggie, they are smart, engaging, and well-crafted characters. Jack has his doubts about his career in the police and his search for the truth about his birth and his past lead him to a journey of self-discovery, while she is very understanding and supporting.
The story is intriguing, twisty, and very well-plotted. There are cold cases, gangsters, and so much mystery and, if you’ve read the author’s previous novels, you will recognize some of the characters mentioned. The more I read, the more the pace increases, the more twists keep coming, the more I couldn’t put it down so that I read it in less than two days. I think that the ending was perfect and surprising and it makes me eager to see what happens next to DC Jack Warr.
A huge thank you to Tracy Fenton and Zaffre for inviting me to join the blog tour and providing me with a copy of the novel.
