Format: Hardcover
John Sandford is the author of a series I've followed for many, many years. His latest book in the Lucas Davenport series is Buried Prey. (Released today)

Davenport has been a cop in the Minneapolis area for many years, working his way up the ladder. He currently works for the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA, often troubleshooting for the governor. But a case from the past is literally unearthed and Davenport is forced to confront the unthinkable. Was the wrong man convicted of the murder of two young girls? Has the real killer been preying on children for the last 25 years?

The disappearance of the Jones girls in 1985 marked the beginning of Lucas's career as a detective.

"In the first year as a cop, working patrol and then, briefly, as a dope guy, he'd felt that he was learning things at a ferocious rate: about the street, life, death, sex, love, hate, fear, stupidity, jealousy and accident, and all the other things that brought citizens in contact with the cops. Then the learning tailed off. Now investigating, the feeling was back. He was crude and he knew it, but it was interesting and he'd get better at it."

The first part of the book is set in 1985 and we get to see a young Davenport. It was so much fun to watch Lucas begin what we know is a long and colourful career. One of my favourite supporting characters has always been Del Capslock. In Buried Prey we are privy to the first pairing up of Lucas and Del. Their witty banter has continued to this day. The tone is set for what we know of Lucas today as well - his way with women, his obsession with clothes and his 'outside the box' methods.

"Lucas, on the other hand, was a poor leader.

This is a great murder mystery. What I enjoyed just as much however, was the look back we got into Davenports career. We find out how many of his lasting friendships were formed and how they helped shape him as a detective. Sandford isn't afraid of shocking losses, or painful revelations. His characters are real and flawed.
His next can't come soon enough for me.

another thriller featuring Davenport as the detective in charge. Sandford's books are always a good read. He has an additional series now besides the Prey series that features another detective that is now familiar from the Prey series: Virgil Flowers

Consistent Sandford. I started reading his books after picking one up at a used book store. Living in Manitoba and travelling a lot in Minnesota and North Dakota, with weather patterns and geography being similar, it was easy to transport oneself to the storyline. I became an observer of events in each of his books.

Clearly Sandford has his book pattern well established and simply put, keep it up and I'll keep buying them all.
