Library Staff Review – Buried

Buried by Ellison Cooper

It’s fun to recommend books I’ve loved to patrons. But, it’s also been fantastic getting suggestions from patrons in return. One such suggestion came from a LML member whose tastes run very similar to my own. She’s recommended many books and authors that I’ve enjoyed in the past. But, her latest suggestion was one I just have to pass on to you.

Buried by Ellison Cooper is the perfect thriller. You’ve often read in a review that a book is “a real page- turner” or that you “can’t put it down”. Too often, it’s not true. But, Buried grabs you within the first six pages and then never lets go. It kept pulling me back, racing to find out what happens next, only to be sorry when the ride was over.

Buried is actually the second book by Ellison Cooper featuring Agent Sayer Altair. The first in the series is Caged. It didn’t hurt to have started with the second book, it still read just fine as a stand-alone novel. But, I’ve already put Caged on hold to enjoy the story that led up to Buried. Then, I just have to wait until July for the rest of Sayer’s adventures in “Cut to the Bone”!
