Buried Deep is the 5th detective novel that I have read from author Penny Grubb and, like all her books, I was gripped from the first page. It features her female detective, Annie Raymond, who captivated me in her first book, Like False Money. I love Annie Raymond's character. Annie is unique, endearing, very real, and got me onside from the beginning. All Penny Grubb’s characters are real, and have depth. Buried Deep is a great crime story with interesting and believable characters, including one of my favourites, flawed Detective Webber, another cleverly drawn and very real character. I can’t wait for the next Penny Grubb detective novel.
