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.
Buried for Good by Alex Coombs is a twisty mystery that surprised me. I love the misdirection the author used to make the reader think the story was heading in one direction, but surprisingly, it would turn a different way.
Alex Coombs writes beautifully. The descriptions set this beautiful, atmospheric novel, and made me feel as if I was there. Scotland is a beautiful place, and Alex Combs definitely brought that to life on the page.
I enjoyed Hanlon as a main character. Her tough exterior protects all of her insecurities. She is a very well rounded, and relatable character.
Quick pacing, beautiful writing, and wonderful characters created a unique story that I really enjoyed. Check this one out.
