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 . . .
This is the first in a new series that introduces DC Jack Warr.
When a body is found after a fire at Rose Cottage, a pile of burnt cash is also found. Is this linked to the cold case, a train robbery in 1995?
So the investigation begins with DCI Ridley in charge, but the real focus is on his team, DC Jack Warr, Ds Laura Wade and DC Anik Joshi.
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.
With its tight plot and great characters this really makes for another fantastic read from Lynda La Plante.
