I love a good book from Joffe Books. In fact, over the weekend I finished the new release from Chris Collett, Buried Lies. It’s a revised edition, previously published as ‘Blood and Stone’.
About Buried Lies
Detective Inspector Tom Mariner is back. and in emotional turmoil. After the funeral of his ex, Anna, he heads to the Welsh countryside to walk out his feelings and recover.
His holiday is disrupted by the discovery of a dead body in the woods. Murder appears to be the order of the day, but who is responsible?
As the bodies continue to be discovered, the secrets of the remote Welsh village begin to come out.
How enjoyed is Mariner wrapped up in the murder?
Is everyone as shocked by the murders as they seem?
Who is responsible for the murders?
Buried Lies is a fantastic crime fiction novel that will keep you guessing until the very end.
Buried Lies is no different, the suspense starts to build up from the first page and the mystery just continues to build .
I enjoyed the quieter periods of the story with Mariner’s walking when he was working through his inner turmoil. But the action soon picked up again.
Chris’ winning is brilliant and she keeps the suspense going all the way through.
If you love a quick action packed fast paced crime fiction novel, this is for you.
The whole DI Mariner series is available from Amazon using the following links.
Chris Collett grew up in a Norfolk seaside town where she worked in a boarding house (now defunct) a local bakery (closed down) and a crisp factory (razed to the ground). Graduating in Liverpool, Chris has since taught children and adults with varying degrees of learning disability, including autism. She is now a university lecturer, with two grown up children, and lives in Birmingham; DI Tom Mariner’s ‘patch’. She has published short stories, teaches creative and crime writing and is a manuscript assessor for the Crime Writers Association.
The first five DI Tom Mariner books will be released in revised editions by Joffe Books in 2017/2018.
