My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Trust Jeffrey Deaver to write a short story that would grab your attention from get-go!
Buried by Jeffrey Deaver is part of Amazon’s HUSH collection of stories.
This novella gives a glimpse into the working of a newspaper publication with the echoes of dying journalism and the new age fad of creating a buzz in the form of everything ‘viral’. I loved how the author gives instructions about using ‘which’ or ‘that’ in a sentence and all the grammatical discussions between Fitz and Dottie. The mystery of the Gravedigger was excellently plotted with all the twists, keeping the reader on their toes.
So obviously the best in the HUSH collection and I wish there was a full-length investigative novel with Dottie and Fitz as the main characters.
A #KindleUnmilited selection.
An old-school reporter discovers that the search for the truth is still full of surprises in a twisty short thriller from bestselling master of suspense Jeffery Deaver.
After a long run as a respected journalist, Edward “Fitz” Fitzhugh is on his way out when he stumbles across the story of a lifetime. The Gravedigger is a serial kidnapper who taunts the police with riddles. The other puzzle is his motive, which Fitz is determined to piece together. When an eyewitness to the latest abduction leads Fitz closer to the facts, he realizes that the last great story of his career is not at all what it appears to be.
Jeffery Deaver’s Buried is part of Hush, a collection of six stories, ranging from political mysteries to psychological thrillers, in which deception can be a matter of life and death. Each piece can be read or listened to in one truly chilling sitting.
