Buried Preyby John Sandford
Synopses & Reviews
For twenty-five years the unsolved kidnapping of two young girls has haunted Minneapolis homicide detective Lucas Davenport. Today, the bodies have been found. Today, he returns to a crime — and a nightmare — darker than any before.
"One of Sandford's best." Kirkus Reviews
"Like the best writers in this genre — Dashiell Hammett, Elmore Leonard, Ed McBain among them — John Sandford evokes his netherworld with authentic dialogue and meticulous details." Minneapolis Star Tribune
A house demolition provides an unpleasant surprise for Minneapolis — the bodies of two girls, wrapped in plastic. It looks like they've been there a long time. Lucas Davenport knows exactly how long.
In 1985, Davenport was a young cop with a reputation for recklessness, and the girls' disappearance was a big deal. His bosses ultimately declared the case closed, but he never agreed with that. Now that he has a chance to investigate it all over again, one thing is becoming increasingly clear: It wasn't just the bodies that were buried. It was the truth.
For twenty-five years the unsolved kidnapping of two young girls has haunted Minneapolis homicide detective Lucas Davenport. Today, the bodies have been found. Today, he returns to a crime—and a nightmare—darker than any before.
