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.

I truly loved how this book was written and loved getting to know some more about Lucas when he was younger. This series never disappoints! I will definitely be listening to this one again!!

Lucas Disappoints

Would you try another book from John Sandford and/or Richard Ferrone?

I have been an avid follower of John Sandford, originally consuming the first 14 one after another in winter of 2003. But gosh what happened? I thought this was boring. It missed the energy and life. I may have missed the books immediately before this one... now I'm curious if there was a slow decline or what happened. Could it be me?

I LOVE Richard Ferrone! No problem there. It was the plot and the fun personal details that always livened up the book. This one plodded along.

Would you ever listen to anything by John Sandford again?

I am listening to Stolen Prey right now. It is also missing the verve! But at least the plot is more colorful than Buried's boring revisit to the past. I might try the 2013 Silken before I give up. Not sure. Depends on how good some other mysteries are to lure me further away from the Prey series.

What about Richard Ferroneā€™s performance did you like?

The voice!

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
