The 1st book in the Jack Warr series

Buried by Lynda La Plante book cover

Some things should remain…BURIED

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?

Praise for BURIED

“Lynda La Plante does a cracking job… in Buried. DC Jack Warr is clearly destined for higher things, and I look forward to following his progress.”
―  PETER ROBINSON, No. 1 Sunday Times bestselling author of the DCI Banks series.

“A compelling, clever plot with a brilliant cast of diverse characters. Utterly riveting”
― RACHEL ABBOTT, million-selling author of ONLY THE INNOCENT

“Packed with revealing flashbacks, fast-paced action, an unforgettable cast of characters, including the restless, unpredictable Jack Warr, and La Plante’s dark, satirical brand of northern humour, Buried is a masterclass in visual storytelling.”
― Lancashire Post

“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.”
― Orlando Books Blog

“In a book with numerous twists and turns, we were treated to a proper ‘gasp’ moment at the end, which, although shocking, was in-keeping with what we had read about Jack. This set up the next book nicely and I can’t wait to read where Lynda La Plante takes DC Warr next. Buried is a book that I can definitely imagine on the small screen, so I have my fingers crossed that it will be optioned for TV. This promises to be another huge hit for the author.”
