Sinopsis:

When a whole block is torn down in central Minneapolis to make way for a new housing development, an unpleasant surprise is unearthed. The bodies of two girls, wrapped in plastic, are discovered 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 rules. 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. The searches turned up nothing, so when the suspected kidnapper was killed in a shoot-out, the case was closed.

But not for Davenport. He'd gotten deep into the case, and while he was convinced the suspect knew something, he didn't think he was the perpetrator - something just felt off. He argued hard about it to his bosses, but nobody wanted to hear. Until now. With the bodies discovered, the case is dusted off, just to tie a bow around it - but there's something wrong with the evidence. There are indications of tampering. Police tampering. And as Davenport investigates, it becomes clear: It wasn't just the bodies that were buried, but the truth - and there are a lot of people with a very strong stake in that truth never being uncovered.

Review:

'If you haven't read Sandford, you have been missing one of the great summer-read novelists of all time' - Stephen King, Entertainment Weekly

'Tough, engrossing and engaging, Sandford writes superb thrillers' - Literary Review

'That rare beast - a series writer who reads like a breath of fresh air' - Daily Mirror

'Few do it better than Sandford' - Daily Telegraph

'An exciting and superbly elegant demonstration of the intelligent crime writing that has helped John Sandford sell an estimated 33 million books' - Guardian

'A winner in every possible way' - Independent on Sunday

'His effortlessly fluid writing and plotting really impress and his pithy characterisation is often sensational ... Do yourself a favour and invest in all the Prey novels, take a week off work and enjoy' - London Lite

'I am continually impressed by Sandford's ability to keep the series fresh and his characters so interesting and well-developed... Overall, this is an excellent detective thriller. Sandford writes solid, brisk prose and has crafted a great narrative. With the look back at Lucas's early career, Buried Prey stands out from other Davenport novels and is stronger for it...If you have any interest in crime thrillers, then John Sandford is a must-read. This is a very highly recommended series and novel' --- Civilian Reader (blog), 02/10
