Summary

In Blarney, Cork, an old millworker's cottage guards its secrets.

In 1921 a mother, a father and their two young children disappeared from this house. And now, 95 years later, their mummified bodies have been discovered under the floorboards.

As DS Katie Maguire investigates, the flames of old family rivalries flare up once more...and Katie is caught in the crossfire.

DEAD - but by no means buried.....

WOW.

Graham Masterton continues to amaze me how different and damn right compelling he makes each new Katie McGuire novel.

I've been waiting ages for this to appear on Audible, with eager anticipation.

It didn't disappoint.

Initially I thought the story was a little slow but all of a sudden BOOM! it grabs you. And it doesn't let go...

As ever you try to predict the ending but this keeps you guessing...

All characters are so believable and as ever, the Irish narration adds context and authenticity.

This is probably my favourite KM novel to date and I finished it this evening drained, yet enthralled....

I cannot WAIT for the next....

Superb. Highly recommended!

Another blinder from Masterton

A well written believable storyline.
The narration was not as good as the previous narration. Some of the characters voices were a nightmare!! Unfortunately the narrator continues the series!! But I'm now hooked so I've already bought the next one.

Enjoyed the story but a bit graphic

Very good story which was enhanced by an excellent performance. The only drawback was the overly graphic descriptions of injuries etc which were rather "yuck"

Wonderful narrator

A wonderfully narrated book full of whimsical lilting Irish phrases that give it an authentic feel and, for me, made it a joy to hear. The storyline held my attention, although there were some implausible turns of direction in the latter stages.

Gruesome

What did you like most about Buried?

A well written, extremely well narrated Audio book but I wish that I had read the previous reviews before starting to listen to the book. I did finish it but it was far too descriptive for me as far as the gruesome parts go. I will certainly be more careful before purchasing another of this author's works.

Very Buried

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Amazing description of the Irish probelms

Who was your favorite character and why?

Obviously Katie as the main character as the whole story revolves around her

Have you listened to any of Aoife McMahon’s other performances? How does this one compare?

This was a brilliant reading and made the story really live.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Thee rscue of John and Kiner

Any additional comments?

Some of the details are more than horrifying but that was the story line.

Bullets, nails and drills plus C4 and grenades


A good plot with DS Katie Maguire at the helm plus all the usual suspects and some old characters, fast paced and full of action,and a few twists and complication that make Katie Maguire a very dangerous woman to work for or even know.

But be warned that this is violent and gory like few books, nothing is left to the imagination even the noises are described in detail, no one is safe not puppies or babies, if it can be killed it probably will be and in the most gruesome or deliberate manner.

Apart from that it is a great story, that is hard to put down
