Unburied Synopsis

‘The police. They’re digging in the scrapyard.’Cal Lovett has spent half his life telling other people’s stories on his true crime podcast. But the police are close to solving the mystery of his sister’s disappearance – now he might finally get to tell Margot’s story. A desperate relative begs for his help. Cal seeks respite on a holiday in the Scottish Highlands, but is dragged into a new cold case: an unsolved murder that shattered a family fourteen years ago. An isolated community wary of outsiders. Eyes follow Cal everywhere. And someone makes it very clear that they don’t want him snooping around… How far will he go to find justice? And how far is far enough? The second thrilling instalment in the Cal Lovett Files, perfect for fans of Helen Fields, Jane Casey and Claire Douglas.
