BURIED is Lynda La Plante’s latest thriller. (published in 2020)
The title is a great thriller; crime drama; police procedural; mystery; detective story.
It is the first book in a new series by Lynda La Plante featuring detective Jack Warr. It is also a culmination of sorts to WIDOWS featuring Dolly Rawlins, wife of notorious criminal Harry Rawlins.
Ms. La Plante also writes a ‘young Jane Tennison’ series; Jane Tennison of Prime Suspect fame and the Anna Travis series.
“Millions of stolen, untraceable bank notes lie untouched in an old Victorian cottage, the hidden legacy of Dolly Rawlins and her ‘widows’. When a fire breaks out at the deserted cottage, with a badly charred body inside with what looks like thousands of burnt bank notes, it attracts the attention of the police and one young detective in particular, Jack Warr.”
Excellent, tense reading. My only comment is that there are a heck of a lot of characters to keep track of! ****
