Buried

(2020)
(The first book in the DC Jack Warr series)
A novel by

 
 
The first book in a brand-new series by the Queen of Crime Drama, Lynda La Plante.

Millions of stolen, untraceable bank notes lie untouched in an old Victorian cottage, the hidden legacy of the Dolly Rawlins and her widows. 

But the millions are not forgotten. Released from prison, Esther Freeman is determined to retrieve the money. And so too is Mike Withey, Shirley Miller's brother and Audrey's son. 

When a fire breaks out at the derelict cottage, with a badly charred body inside along with what looks like thousands of burnt bank notes, it attracts the attention of the police and one young detective in particular, Jack Warr. 

Jack's investigation into the fire, and the burnt body inside, coincide with an investigation into his own past. Adopted at birth, Jack discovers his birth father may have been none other than Harry Rawlins, a renowned criminal. 

As he finds out the truth about his own identity, Jack finds himself becoming increasingly aggressive, stopping at nothing to find the truth - including breaking the law himself.

Genre: Mystery

Praise for this book

"A compelling, clever plot with a brilliant cast of diverse characters. Utterly riveting." - Rachel Abbott

"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

"Lynda La Plante practically invented the thriller." - Karin Slaughter
