When DC Hazel Hamilton arrives at the scene of a car crash, she realises straight away that this investigation isn’t going to be straightforward. The victim is one of their own, DI Milton Bowman. Bowman is taken away from the scene with life threatening injuries and Hazel knows that there is little chance that he is going to make it. When DI Harry Powell goes to Milton’s address to break the news to his wife he stumbles across a horrific murder scene. Linda Bowman lies dead in her house. Could it be possible that Milton could have murdered his wife? What was really going on in their lives?
What I really liked about Buried Secrets was the authenticity. Lisa Cutts has spent nineteen years working in the police force and in this book she takes you into the heart of the police investigation. I really liked her character, Hazel, especially in the scenes in which she is acting as FLO to Linda and Milton’s son, Travis. I thought that Lisa wrote these scenes really well, you can clearly see the influence from her days spent working in the police force.
I also liked the relationship between Hazel and her colleague Harry which added to their characters. I’d like to see their relationship develop further.
A really good read, perfect for fans of Jane Casey’s Maeve Kerrigan series. Thank you to Simon & Schuster and Netgalley for providing me with a copy to read.
Buried Secrets tells the story of DI Milton Bowman, and the secrets that unfold. Admittedly I struggled for the first few chapters as there were SO many names to get to grips with, and I had to keep flicking back a few pages to refresh my memory on who was who and what their backstory was. After a while though it all began to fit together seamlessly, like a very complex jigsaw puzzle. I am amazed at how Lisa has managed to focus equally on several different characters and manage to entangle all of their stories into one greater story. There were plenty of twists and turns, and an ending I wasn't quite expecting, although admittedly I was a little disappointed at the ending. It felt like the whole story had lead up to one ending and then it didn't quite deliver in the same way.
On the whole though, I loved this book and will definitely be looking for more from Lisa.
Detective Constable Hazel Hamilton is appointed a family liaison officer to the Bowman's nineteen-year-old son Travis and has the unenviable job of breaking the news. Travis hadn't been home last night but had spent the night at his friend Aiden's house.
What ensues is a tense police procedural as Milton's colleagues seek to understand exactly what happened that Monday morning. As a close friend of Milton and Linda, Harry is persuaded to take some time off, but he is kept up to date on the case by Hazel, with whom he starts a tentative courtship.
At the same time the reader learns of the activities of an East End drug baron whose brutal reprisals terrorise those who cross him; but what is the link to the Bowmans?
This is an excellently constructed novel from an author who through her career in the police, is well versed in how things are done. The characters leap from the page, and the plot, sub-plots and mis-directions keep one guessing until the very end.
A very satisfying read for lovers of homegrown (UK) crime fiction.
