Bury Your Past by J M Dalgliesh [6/10]

“One Lost Soul” introduced DI Tom Janssen, a dogged police detective on the pretty, sea-smashed Norfolk Coast. I was looking forward to Janssen’s return and burned through “Bury Your Past” over two evenings. When a vicious storm brings up from the dunes a young woman’s murdered body, Janssen, together with his attractive boss and his callow underling, dig into a history of corporate medical experimentation and dark local secrets. J M Dalgliesh sets a fast, precise pace, the investigation is intriguing, and the evocative setting adds a further dimension. The de rigueur twist works a treat. A traditional police procedural of satisfying heft.
