Publisher Description

Compulsive and thoroughly captivating… I found myself unable to tear myself away and as a consequence read it all in a single tense sittingbags of suspense and action wrapped up in a thrillingly plotted story’ Reader’s Retreat, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

On the first day in her new job, Detective Megan Thomas is called to a murder. The body lies deep in an underground bunker, in the middle of beautiful countryside. The two women in the nearest house claim to have no idea who it could be or who could have put it there. So why are they so nervous? And why does Noah, the young child living there, talk about a visitor he’s meant to keep secret?

Megan is determined to solve the case. She’s moved to Devon for a fresh start, after years spent undercover. But when she looks at the victim, it triggers a panic attack. As her heart races and her breathing stalls, she’s forced to ask whether she can return to life in a regular crime unit. Her memories are too powerful to be buried, maybe too powerful to let her do her job. But the need to find justice for the unnamed victim still drives her. 

When another body is found on the stretch of beach where she swims every day, Megan realises that she is up against a truly vicious killer. Then Noah goes missing, and Megan finds herself in a race against time to save an innocent life. She won’t rest until she finds answers – no matter what it might cost her.

A completely gripping new series from bestselling author Susan Wilkins, introducing the tough and determined Detective Megan Thomas. For fans of Ann Cleeves, LJ Ross and Mari Hannah, this will keep you hooked from the first page to the last.

A great start to a new series

There is nothing like a new fresh series to sink your teeth into and Buried Deep fits the bill perfectly. Set against the beautiful landscape of Devon, Susan delivers a thrilling read that will have you gripped and enthralled right from the beginning.

Susan has created a plot that had me instantly hooked. The story follows Detective Megan Thomas as she moves to Devon leaving behind a five year career which was spent working undercover for the Metropolitan Police. Now working for the regular crime unit, she is barely settled in on her first day, when she is called to the scene of a murder.

But this triggers her to have a panic attack and with it brings back memories that leave her questioning whether she is able to do her job. When another body is found, Megan must pull herself together if she is to solve the crime and stop the killer before they strike again.

I really enjoyed all the characters in the story and main protagonist Detective Megan Thomas makes for a great lead. She is tough but not without her own flaws and issues which are touched on briefly and I look forward to the layers being peeled back as we learn more about her.

Buried Deep is an addictive read. It is well structured, has an interesting plot, well developed characters that Susan brings all together with writing that is fluid, engaging and captures the reader in its prose.

A new author for me, Susan is now on my radar and I look forward to reading more books in this series in the future. It was an absolute pleasure to read and review Buried Deep which I highly recommend.
