Lies, manipulation, and murder!
This is only my second Irene Hannon book but I can guarantee it won't be the last. I really enjoy her brand of suspense, a little technical, a little spooky, and always keeps you guessing.
Buried Secrets was a little different than most suspense books, in that, instead of the big reveal at the end, the reader knows pretty early on who did it and we get to follow along with Lisa and Mac while they piece things together and prove it.
Buried Secrets is all about motivations and the darker way the human mind works when in self preservation mode. That psychological edge really made the story in my opinion. It kept me on the edge of my seat and trying to guess what might happen next. There was a lot more in the romantic arena, which surprised me. But all in all it was pretty good.
You have to pay attention to the special cover that Buried Secrets has. The designers added some texture so that when you hold it at the right angle it appears 3-D. It gives some delightfully spooky connotations to the booted foot digging the shovel into the dirt. The Revell design team really outdid themselves.
Irene Hannon has started off the Men Of Valor series with a bang and I eagerly await the next book.
