9780061257018: Buried (Tom Thorne Series)

Luke Mullen, the missing teenage son of a former police officer, was last seen getting into a car with an older woman. No one knows whether he went willingly or was abducted, whether he's living or dead.

Then the videotape arrives . . .

On special assignment, Detective Inspector Tom Thorne is in charge of the investigation into Luke's disappearance. But it's the information that Tony Mullen, the boy's father, is not freely sharing that Thorne finds particularly disturbing—like the names of dangerous criminals who have openly threatened the tough ex-detective and his entire family. Something shocking and deadly may well be buried deep in old cases and past lives. But Thorne knows he doesn't have the luxury of time to dig—especially when a kidnapper brutally demonstrates that he is willing to kill.

About the Author:

Mark Billingham is the author of nine novels, including Sleepyhead, Scaredy Cat, Lazybones, The Burning Girl, Lifeless, and Buried—all Times (London) bestsellers—as well as the stand-alone thriller In the Dark. For the creation of the Tom Thorne character, Billingham received the 2003 Sherlock Award for Best Detective created by a British writer, and he has twice won the Theakston’s Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year Award. He has previously worked as an actor and stand-up comedian on British television and still writes regularly for the BBC. He lives in London with his wife and two children.

From Booklist:

The sixth entry in the Tom Thorne series finds the London homicide detective assigned to a kidnap detail seeking out the teenage son of a retired police official. Soon after Thorne admits he needs a body to really sink his teeth into a case, he gets two--the kidnappers. They're found slashed to death, the teen's prints are all over the knife, and he has disappeared. But Thorne believes the young man's been reabducted, and he digs into the father's past to find out who might have done it. He starts with the man the ex-cop failed to place on his list of known enemies, a child molester on the lam for murder. Meanwhile, Thorne copes with a steadily worsening back injury, late-night appearances by his dead father, and the romantic travails of his best friend, medical examiner Phil Hendricks. On the bright side, his kidnap-squad counterpart seems to fancy him when she is not freezing him out of the investigation. Billingham is a television writer, and Thorne's ripe to star in one of those deliciously dour procedurals the Brits are so skilled at turning out. Frank Sennett
