Buried Prey by John Sandford is the 21st book in the “Prey” thriller series. Publisher: Putnam, May 2011
Some secrets can’t stay buried—the brilliant new Lucas Davenport thriller from the number-one New York Times-bestselling author.
An entire block on the edge of the Minneapolis loop is being torn down for development, when an unpleasant surprise is unearthed: the bodies of two girls, wrapped in plastic, underneath an old house. It looks like they’ve been down there a long time. Lucas Davenport knows exactly how long.
In 1985, Davenport was a young cop just about to be promoted out of uniform, despite a reputation for playing fast and loose with the regulations. A local hockey hero, a womanizer, a superb undercover guy, he was part of the massive police effort that followed the kidnapping of two girls who were never found again, dead or alive. Eventually, the case was closed.
But not for Davenport. Now, with the bodies discovered, he has the chance to investigate the kidnappings all over again, and the deeper he probes, the more one thing becomes clear: It wasn’t just the bodies that were buried. It was the truth.
Filled with his trademark razor-sharp plotting and some of the best characters in suspense fiction, Buried Prey is further proof that “John Sandford is at the top of his game” (The Washington Post).
Oh man, what a ride! Lucas is at the top of his game. One of his early cases comes back to haunt him with after 25 years, the bodies of two young girls are found. Lucas believe the killer was out there and when he starts to dig into the facts again, death occurs and the killer has invoke Lucas’ wrath. Stand back and watch the fireworks rise because Lucas is on the trail and nothing will stop him from winning this game. This was another great book in the Prey series. This fast-paced, action filled drama will keep you on our toes as Lucas searches out the truth and enact revenge. The old Lucas is back and I love it.
