Superb #CrimeThriller – Buried for Good by Alex Coombs

On a remote island, everyone is a suspect…

When Private Investigator Hanlon is hired to protect famous yoga instructor Camille Anderson on her Scottish island retreat, she thinks this may be her simplest job yet.

But when an attack on Camille’s life goes wrong, it soon becomes clear that there is a murderer on the island – and Hanlon will stop at nothing to track them down.

With only a small group of guests the suspects are clear, but as the body count rises Hanlon must step up to find out who the killer is before it’s too late…

A tense, atmospheric page-turner from Alex Coombs. Perfect for fans of Angela Marsons and Lisa Regan.

My Review:

This is a contemporary thriller with Private Investigator Hanlon endeavouring to protect a famous yoga instructor who has had multiple death threats. Hanlon is wary of some of the warnings she’s also had from a psychic but it seems like a straightforward job – stay on an isolated island and relax . . . but there’s a murderer there, too, and who knows when and who they’ll be striking again.

Hanlon isn’t your typical PI. She’s an ex police officer who has problems containing her anger and tends to react violently when provoked – but she is working on this. I’d definitely not want to thwart her! There are a limited number of suspects and the clues keep suggesting a different one may be the perpetrator. Get ready for multiple murders, lots of red herrings to keep you guessing, beautiful settings and serious family issues in this edge of your seat, page turner. It is an enthralling read that I didn’t want to put down until I’d finished it and discovered who was involved – and why. There’s also a potential romance developing, but you’ll need to read it for yourself to discover her current options! I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys suspense and mystery filled crime thrillers.

Thank you to Boldwood Books and NetGalley for my copy of this book which I have voluntarily read and honestly reviewed.
