Jack soon finds himself embroiled in an international drugs operation, art theft – and a murder investigation. On the back foot throughout, he is forced to play second fiddle to the Drug Squad, confront an old adversary, and even fight off accusations of assault.
But Jack believes that every aspect of this multi-faceted case is simply a distraction from the one person who lies at the heart of it all – the widow’s elusive stalker. Find him, and the truth will come out…

Praise for BURIED, the first Jack Warr novel
“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.”
