With the bodies discovered, Davenport has the chance to return to the crime that has haunted him for years. Reading “Buried Prey” was just grand fun; I feel it is one of the most riveting entries into the series. The plot is excellent, the writing tight, the action non stop and best of all, I get to see a side of a character I’ve enjoyed for almost 20 years.
Betty Ludwig is a short-term hostage. Well I did but I didn’t much care for him. Lucas Davenport 1 – 10 of 30 books. The author stretched and found a more compelling book by doing so. The searches turned up nothing, so when the suspected kidnapper was killed in a shoot-out, the case was closed. Much of his two investigations, past and present, amount to a slog, a procedural daisy chain of information that leads to more information, much of it unreliable.

BURIED PREY by John Sandford | Kirkus Reviews
A macabre discovery at a demolition site sends Lucas Davenport back toand his very first homicide. A tip comes in about a Robert Sherman. I like that although there was a heinous crime to be solved in this one, the complexity of the characters and their emotional makeup was more the central part of the novel. Through the years, he has risen through the ranks and is now head of the state’s Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. Detective Hote is buries the cold case full time. Now Lucas is struck with regret, all too aware bueied the real killer has been free to claim more victims.
His bosses jkhn declared the case closed, but he never agreed with that. Casting aside the reservations that detoured the first investigation, Lucas has no intention of letting this monster slip through his fingers again.
