    A Fantastic New Series

    Lynda La Plante writes the first in a new series featuring Detective Constable Jack Warr of the Metropolitan Police’s Serious Crime Division. Jack has recently relocated from Devon to London with girlfriend Maggie. He investigates when a rural Victorian property, the isolated but well-kept Rose Cottage near Aylesbury, is destroyed by fire. The charred remains of a corpse are found, along with around £1.8 million of old banknotes just lying in the fireplace. Jack and his colleagues know how hard it will be to solve the case due to the lack of forensics as any evidence that could have existed will now be a pile of ashes. However, their enthusiasm is renewed when they realise there is a link to an unsolved cold case in which £27 million was stolen during a train robbery in 1995. Though the principal character is Jack, the investigating team is led by DCI Simon Ridley and also on the team are DC Anik Joshi and DS Laura Wade. While the case is ongoing, Jack embarks on a journey of self-discovery and is stunned when he discovers his family are knee-deep in this assignment. As he learns the truth about his own identity, Jack finds himself becoming increasingly aggressive, stopping at nothing to root out the truth... I'm really pleased I decided to take a chance with Buried as I really enjoyed it. There were many different threads to the plot creating a great multilayered tale and the narrative moved seamlessly between past and present. The plot was wonderfully executed with its swift pacing, plenty of drama, twists, turns and misdirection. The cast of characters were full of personality, intrepid and very engaging. Main protagonist Jack was a bit of an unwilling saviour, though I warmed to him as the story developed. There was never a dull moment in this cracking read, which was a gritty cocktail of mystery and danger. A thoroughly entertaining police procedural complete with an ambiguous denouement, this was a thrilling and all-round marvellous read. I am already looking forward to seeing what Lynda La Plante has in store for DC Jack Warr in future books. I received a complimentary digital copy of this novel at my request from Zaffre via NetGalley and this review is my unbiased opinion.

    Buried

    So enjoyed this book introducing the new lead character and some old ones we already know. Written in the authors true style, you just cannot put down as you just need to know what happens next. Cannot wait for the next one!
