    Buried – Another Katie McGuire MasterclassThe Katie McGuire series is rapidly becoming one of the best police procedural thriller series around today. Graham Masterton has a real ear for the genuine Irish burr which he has always used to full effect throughout the previous outing of Katie McGuire and continues with this one. Detective Superintendent Katie McGuire is feisty principle character, a red headed dynamo who is not afraid to take on corruption, bullying and downright lies – and that [...]

    I started this without knowing it was a series. In fact I just assumed it was a horror novel. And while horrific at times it was a really good police procedural set in Ireland. I am now on the hunt for the earlier ones. PS: there was numerous mentions of what I think were past events in previous books so if you are non-spoiler types don't read out of order. PPS: you will be tempted to start talking like an Irish policeman (or criminal) while reading just don't.

    This is my first reading of a novel by Graham Masterton, and therefore my first in the Katie Maguire series which is now 6 volumes old. Well, it gave me much to chew on. There are two parallel story lines, one the discovery of a family buried beneath the floorboards of their home in the distant past with all the marks of a "political" murder. The other concerns a present day Cork hoodlum who appears to be beyond the law, involved with smuggling cigarettes from international sources, a hidden org [...]

    Ah, Katie Maguire, I'm surely gettin' ta know yeLet's see how many of the typical story elements show up in this one, shall we?1 - Katie is either moving toward John or away from himor both. Check.2 - A good cop gets killed. Check.3 - Katie does something that pisses off her superior officer. Check.4 - An awkward sex scene that goes on too long.

    A fantastic read! I found with this book I couldn't just read "one more page" and just leave it! I had to keep reading to see what happens next. Kate Maguire is a gutsy cop that does not back down from anything in fact she just keeps pushing boundaries. I will definitely be reading the rest of the series.

    The sixth entry in the Katie Maguire series is another excellent crime novel. The discovery of murder victims who have been hidden under the floorboards for a century and Maguire's pursuit of a slippery and very nasty gangster provide two fascinating plots. When Masterton wrote horror books, he never held back, and he has carried on that fine tradition following his switch to the crime genre. I love Masterton's style, whatever the genre. He write easy to read, fast flowing prose and doesn't worr [...]

    Coraz bardziej lubię i cenię sobie twórczość Grahama Mastertona. Nie horrory, z których jest najbardziej znany, lecz cykl thrillerów o irlandzkiej detektyw nadkomisarz Katie Maguire. Mimo że Pogrzebani to już szósty tom, można od niego rozpocząć przygodę z serią, ponieważ każda książka stanowi zamkniętą całość, przynajmniej w kontekście prowadzonych przez główną bohaterkę śledztw. Jednak ze względu na dosyć skomplikowane prywatne życie Katie, warto poznawać jej [...]

    Katie Maguire is a police officer in Ireland, dealing with what seems to be the worst of the worst. A murdered family is found under the floorboards of their home, ninety years after they were killed. At the same time Maguire and the Garda are trying to bring down local kingpin Bobby Quilty, more so after a young detective is killed during the investigation. You can tell that Masterton made his name as a horror writer from the occasional stomach churning descriptions of people's deaths. This was [...]

    Unfortunately this series is getting very unrealistic this one would have made a decent short story but as a full length book I don't think it worked. The characters that were developing nicely in previous books are now decidedly 'iffy' Katie started out as a very well put together guard but is now a very flaky vigilante and Johns poor mother who died in book 1 but came back to life around book 3 now has Alzheimer's!!! Add to that an ending that wasn't actually an ending I doubt I will read any [...]

    Oh my! Buried presents a hit-and-run, shootings, bombings, sexual and physical abuse of women, and torture---all in grand, graphic, and gory detail. The violence is over the top, even for the genre and has an intimacy about it that is upsetting to me. While I found many things to like about this book, I will have to think long and hard before reading another Masterton novel. Further, I'm not sure who I know that I could recommend this one to.

    Another brilliant book by Graham Masterton, his books never lose your interest from start to finish, and one thing I love about them, is that although the Katie Magure books are a series, each book is finished off properly, and do not just come to a sudden halt, leaving you disappointed, I spent a good part of the book with my hand clamped over my mouth and my heart racing, a truly brilliant author who I can't recommend enough, if you like Crime Fiction books, then these are the ones to read

    I had to take a point off for the main character doing something not normal for her, but I really liked it overall. 4.5 out of 5 for me.

    This seemed slightly different to the others in the series. While I know Katie Maguire is classed as a crime series there is usually a hint of the supernatural/horror in the tales even though it always turns out that an ordinary mortal has done it! This has it feet firmly in crime mode with a story based on the fight between IRA & Loyalists. The story revolves around a family of four killed some 90 years previously & the political implications that the discovery of their bodies brings. M [...]

    Another brilliant read in the Katie McGuire series that is definitely one of my favourite police/crime series. As I’ve said before I not only like and enjoy Katie herself but also her whole team and it’s truly sad when anything happens to any of them.This book was very graphic and hard hitting than any others I’ve read but maybe it was because in Ireland/Northern Ireland people got shot and their bodies buried never to perhaps ever be found. But the scenes of the entire family including su [...]

    "„Pogrzebani” są nie tylko świetnie skrojoną powieścią sensacyjną, ale przede wszystkim opowieścią o tym, że o pewnych sprawach się nie zapomina i że niektórych rzeczy po prostu nie sposób przebaczyć. To również historia o sile miłości, lojalności oraz o odwadze drzemiącej w ludzkich sercach. Mam nadzieję, że dacie się namówić na lekturę tej książki, bo naprawdę jest tego warta. Ja tymczasem wiem jedno – muszę nadrobić zaległości i sięgnąć po poprzednie [...]

    Another enjoyable story in the Katie Maguire series. It contains the usual high body count from a variety of means and a determined detective superintendent to do the right thing to seek justice for the people of Cork. All while dealing with a kidnapping, an older multiple murder, new murders and the illegal selling of cigarettes. She also has to deal with her usual complicated personal life, ex-lovers, new lover and want to be lover. Plus there is the added problem of criminals who think they a [...]

    Graham Masterton writes a great novel, however I must admit I don't think the Irish Tourist Board would be too thrilled with his efforts! He paints a very bleak picture, but is not afraid to tackle to the big issues.There are some very graphic images in here too. Not one for the faint hearted, but still a great read.

    Edward Smith
    Katie Maguire once again spinning her magic in a police thriller working slightly outside the lines of what is legal. As with a lot of Graham Masterson's stories it can get a little gruesome but truly leaves one comprehending the evilness of the opposing force.

    Fierce falderal

    Great as everJust gets better and better I can't wait to start the next one in the series and have already pre order the latest one in December

    Not my favorite in the series.

    This was a review copy.This is a book that grabs you by the throat from the very beginning and doesn’t let go. A tautly and intricately plotted thriller that really moves along at a brisk pace. It opens with two workmen, Declan and Colm and their dog Christy renovating an old house. It hasn’t been decorated in years and needs to be completely refurbished. However, Christy is refusing to come inside. They soon discover he reason for Christy’s reluctance when Colm jemmies up a floorboard and [...]

    This the fourth Graham Masterton book on Katie Maguire that I have read and unfortunately they are becoming a bit samey whilst I enjoy the story it is very predictable.

    Buried by Graham Masterton is book 6 in the Katie Maguire series but the first one I have read. I am not sure what I was expecting but Masterton tale is a tour de force of violence, darkness and the power of crime and unrest in Ireland. "There was a chukk noise, like a plug being pushed into a wall socket, and then the sudden high pitched whine of a electric drill. The next thing he knew, John felt a pain in his left foot so intense that he jolted up and down on the mattress and shrieked out lou [...]

    Incredibly violent, & the characterization of the protagonist was strange. But interesting premises, the IRA-related stuff at least.

    Katie Maguire is trying to solve a historic murder, whilst at the same time threatened by a seemingly untouchable criminal. Engrossing thriller.

    Maggie Kiely
    I have read all the Katie Maguire books and yes each one gets increasingly outlandish and nuttier. However I still love them and will pick up the next one as soon as its available.I think they will be like ‘Marmite’ to many either loved or hated. I would recommend not taking them too seriously.Molloy and Gerity are not mentioned in this book despite their high status in others.Dallas with the death of Bobby for a whole series and then his reappearance with the whole series being a dream is m [...]

    "Bullets, nails and drills plus C4 and grenades"A good plot with DS Katie Maguire at the helm plus all the usual suspects and some old characters, fast paced and full of action,and a few twists and complication that make Katie Maguire a very dangerous woman to work for or even know.But be warned that this is violent and gory like few books, nothing is left to the imagination even the noises are described in detail, no one is safe not puppies or babies, if it can be killed it probably will be and [...]

    George Poppenwimer
    An OK read, detective Katie Maguire solves the mystery of a family buried in a bog. An OK read, entertaining but not very original.

    I won this book in the first reads draw. It is a hugely enjoyable book. A story full of action, much of it violent and at times very bloody action at that. A story that combines a ninety year old murder, Irish nationalism, smuggling and police corruption. Superintendent Katie Maguire finds herself in the middle of an enquiry that kills one of her colleagues and sees a powerful gangster apparently immune to the the law swagger around Cork sure of his safety, aware that no witness will ever dare [...]
