Some secrets should stay buried….

I am an avid adventure fiction reader . . . I have an extensive collection of Clive Cussler, Ian Fleming . . . the list goes on. I picked up Buried Lie – An Young Ace Roberts Adventure in the hopes it would rekindle the feeling I got as a young reader. Books like Tom Swift and the Hardy Boys were among my favorites as a kid - and now that I have a daughter who is an avid reader, I wanted to introduce her to the next generation of adventure heroes . . . Buried Lie far surpassed my expectations. Kerry introduces you to characters that you bond with instantly. It’s set a few decades in the past, but doesn’t get bogged down in trying to establish that setting – brilliantly done. Character interaction and dialog are completely believable and well written . . . and most importantly . . . you care about these characters immediately! It was a very fun read that – at the end – left me eager for more Ace Roberts stories. Can’t wait to hand off my copy to my daughter (it’s got a terrific, strong female character that I know she’s just going to love!).
