This is an absolutely cracking police procedural novel, what a brilliant lead character, backed up by really convincing bit players. A really good storyline with so many twists and turns, did not see the conclusion coming at all. Thoroughly recommend.

I would like to thank Netgalley and Simon & Schuster UK for an advance copy of Buried Secrets, a police procedural set in East Rise in the South of England.

When DI Milton Bowman is involved in a serious car accident his colleague and friend DI Harry Powell goes to tell Milton's wife, Linda, about the accident and finds her dead on the kitchen floor, bleeding from head wounds. To avoid conflict of interest Harry is sidelined and the investigation is led by DCI Barbara Venice and DI Doug Philbert, drafted in from another station. The main emphasis of the novel lies with Family liaison officer, DC Hazel Hamilton.

I enjoyed Buried Secrets as I like Ms Cutts' approach to writing. The first few chapters are intriguing and really drew me in. Was it murder/suicide or just a coincidence or something more nefarious at work with both attacked? As the investigation continues many of Milton and Linda's secrets come to light opening up more avenues of investigation. Hazel, as FLO to their son Travis, is at the centre of it all trying to get information from him and keeping him up to date. It is fascinating and informative to see the tightrope she walks. I haven't read a better novel on this role. It kept me reading and interested until the ending which I found a bit disappointing and trite. It is a twist but it's unsatisfying.

There are chapters where the point of view changes completely and feature a couple of thugs intimidating drug addicts. Initially I didn't see the point of them but assumed they would have some relevance later on. Maybe, but I think too much is made of them.

I really like the characterisation.

Buried Secrets is the second novel in the East Rise Incident Room series, a gripping police procedural from start to finish. It is the first book by Lisa Cutts which I have read and I’ll definitely be reading more from her.

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.

firstly would like to thank netgalley and simon and schuster uk for letting me read and review this book, my first lisa cutts book and hopefully not my last book this author

this book takes you to a whole different level a murder mystery done from the police perspective, we have a car accident and then a murder, are these two linked or are they not what they seem...not wanting to give to much away with spoilers

the characters are well written and believeable and interact very well...a glimpse of the role of a family liaision officer and how they have to interact with families made for an interesting read

but on the whole as the story progressed and the investigation was under way it was amazing what they uncovered and the final outcome....what an ending

i can see lisa cutts being another author added to my ever growing list of authors to keep an eye out for

Buried Secrets by lisa Cutts.
To most people, Detective Inspector Milton Bowman appears to have an ideal life. But some secrets aren’t buried deep enough.

After a tragic car accident, and a shocking murder, DI Milton's colleagues have to start digging into every aspect of his life.

Suspicion and disbelief creep into their lives as a web of deceit unfolds - the Bowman family, friends and even colleagues come under suspicion. No one is to be trusted.

Nothing is as it appears.
OMG what a tense and gripping read. Absolutely fantastic. I was hooked from page one. Really had me thinking who it was. 5*. Netgalley and Simon and schuster UK fiction.
