Description

**Don't miss John Sandford's brand-new thriller Ocean Prey - out now**A Lucas Davenport thriller by internationally bestselling novelist John Sandford 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, 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. ***READERS LOVE THE PREY SERIES*** 'The best Lucas Davenport story so far.

The man has a fine touch for outlaws' Stephen King on Golden Prey 'Sandford's trademark blend of rough humor and deadly action keeps the pages turning until the smile-inducing wrap-up, which reveals the fates of a number of his quirky, memorable characters' Publishers Weekly on Golden Prey 'It appears there is no limit to John Sandford's ability to keep new breath and blood flowing into his Lucas Davenport series.

This is a series you must be reading if you are not already' Bookreporter.com 'Sandford has always been at the top of any list of great mystery writers.

His writing and the appeal of his lead character are as fresh as ever' The Huffington Post 'Sandford is consistently brilliant' Cleveland Plain Dealer
