Publisher's Summary

Luke Mullen, 16-year-old son of a former, high-ranking police officer, has disappeared, presumed kidnapped. While no-one quite dares to voice the fear that he could also be presumed dead, Detective Inspector Tom Thorne is brought in to beef up the squad dedicated to locating the missing boy.

The first thing the team looks for is anyone with a grudge against Luke's father, a man who'd put a lot of tough villains away in his time. A list quickly emerges, but Thorne discovers that one name has been omitted - the most obvious suspect. Is this a simple oversight? Or is it something more telling?

Aware that he does not have the luxury of time, Thorne searches desperately for connections and leads, but learns that secrets are as easily buried as bodies, and that assumptions are the enemy of truth.

    Story
    "Mark Billingham writes another great novel"
    If you could sum up Buried in three words, what would they be?

    Very well written


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Buried?

    Wondering what had happened to Luke when he disappeared from the first kidnappers. I had to keep listening..


    What about Paul Thornley’s performance did you like?

    Paul reads very well and the voices are very good.


    Any additional comments?

    The novel is cleverly written and has lots of twists and turns. The storyline certainly kept my attention. It was very hard to predict what would happen next.

    "Not as good as usual"

    I do not think this book was as good as the other Mark Billingham have written. Confusing story.

    "I enjoyed listening"

    This audio book was interesting but I found didn't hold my interest .
    Mark is a good writer so I have got all his books now.
    It is still a good story just not one of my favourites.
