All That is Buried
E-book, E-Book (USA), Paperback
A parent’s worst fear is realised when seven-year-old Libby Hallforth goes missing at a funfair; no witnesses, no leads, and no trace. Months later, human remains are found, but they’re too old to be Libby. It’s the tip of a gruesome iceberg – bodies, buried in pairs, carefully laid to rest in a ritualistic manner. For D I Jake Porter and D S Nick Styles, the trail for Libby is cold, and everyone is a suspect.
Nobody can be trusted, including the Hallforth family. Libby’s chances of being found alive are fading fast, along with Porter’s chances of stopping a killer before they strikes again.
Chris Sagar –
A missing 7-year old child is the catalyst to Porter and Styles’ latest investigation, in what has fast become one of the most superior and convincing police procedural series out there just now. Libby Hallforth was at the fairground when she disappeared and her parents say they took her eyes off her for just moments – but how can a child just disappear off the face of the earth so quickly? Robert Scragg pulls more than one pretty amazing trick out of his bag with All That Is Buried and, if I didn’t know better, I’d think this was more than just his third novel, so clever is the second plot line that I won’t spoil here! I read this in just a few sittings – this is a what would be called a genuine page-turner in old-fashioned book speak” and receives my mythical 6th star!”
