Publisher's Summary

Some secrets just can't stay buried, in the brilliant new Lucas Davenport thriller from the number-one New York Times- bestselling author. "One of the best," said Kirkus Reviews of Storm Prey. "Razor-sharp dialogue, a tautly controlled pace and enough homicides for a miniseries. What more could fans want?"
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.

This is my "Prayer Review"

This may appear again now and then.
Dear God: Please let this man write another book soon and please let me be here to listen to it. I can't say something like 'even his worst book is good' because I can't think of anything he's done that is worse than anything else.
Before I post this list I have to say that Sandford, Parker and MacDonald are EXTRA special. And Richard Ferrone as John Sandford's voice is an amazing match. Like George Guidall with Craig Johnson and pretty much anything George reads.
Robert B. Parker lived in this space for me as did John D. MacDonald, Michael Connelly, Robert Crais, John Hart, Craig Johnson, John Lescroart, William Kent Krueger, Ridley Pearson ,and Jonathan Kellerman. Some others are really good but these guys have something special. If you are into mystery-thrillers I just gave you a back catalog I wish I could have...but I HAVE had it and it is an incredible treasure. I stopped going to libraries and swap places just so I can encourage these guys by sending them money. Please enjoy.

Davenport Never Lets Go...a 3.5 if I could

I truly enjoyed this classic Davenport novel. Our flawed hero and his gang finally get to right a wrong from long ago. This case dogged Lucas and Dell, knowing for sure the wrong guy got pinned for the crime. They were left to wonder just how many more girls would become victims of this unidentified pedophile.
This story presents the villain as a big greasy loser, a child's true nightmare. Lucas and troop peruse this bad guy, inviting us along for the ride.
The plot takes the usual twits and turns, and although not a deep read this book delivers just what one expects, a good mystery.
And as always the reader is perfect for this character and this series; an enjoyable listen for sure!.
