Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Review:

"One of Sandford's best." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"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

Synopsis:

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.

Synopsis:

“One of [the] best” (Orlando Sentinel) Lucas Davenport Novels—now with a New Introduction by the Author.

Clara Rinker is twenty-eight, beautiful, charmingly southern—and the best hit woman in the business. She just goes about her business, collects her money, and goes home. Her latest hit sounds simple: a defense attorney wants a rival eliminated. No problem—until a witness survives. Clara usually knows how to deal with loose ends: cut them off, one by one, until they're all gone. This time, theres one loose end thats hard to shake.

Lucas Davenport has no idea of the toll this case is about to take on him. Clara knows his weak spots. She knows how to penetrate them, and how to use them. And when a woman like Clara has the advantage, no one is safe.
