Product Description

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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I was wary of buying this as I thought the last couple of 'Prey' novels seemed to be a liitle lacking in something and had become very formulaic - perhaps the author was focussing on the Virgil Flowers series to the detriment of Davenport - they weren't bad, just not as good as the earlier novels.

I am glad to say that my fears were groundless, from a promising start and the discovery of two long buried bodies, the story takes you back into Davenports early days as a detective looking for the killer of two young girls, then right back to the present as Davenport, wracked by guilt over his failure to follow up his instincts years ago begins the hunt for John Fell anew.

The story is pacy, it is, as always, very well written and brings back some of the characters from earlier 'Prey' books and there is even a passing reference to Kidd.

The humour that sets these books apart from their rivals makes a welcome return, and after a shock event concerning one of the regular supporting cast (you do not see this coming, it's like the author gets you comfortable then "WHAM - bite on this dear reader", Davenport stops worrying about his age and commitments, steps up a gear and is back to the darker character we know from the previous books in the series, and his exchanges with Del and Letty are a joy to read.

Top marks - Davenport is back, mojo restored.

Buried Prey is undoubtedly best Davenport book in quite some time. the build up of events, investigation and chase are all brilliant keeping the reader glued to the book. In terms of characters and plot, the book provides a good prequel to Davenport character along with likes of Del and Sloan. What I loved the most about the book was the feeling I got which was same when I read likes of Rules of Prey and Sudden Prey. A definite read for a Davenport fan...

Format: Hardcover
The distant past returns to haunt the life of Lucas Davenport, a homicide detective in Minneapolis, when some workers discover in the debris of a building they were about to wipe out of the face of the earth, the bodies of two girls that disappeared a quarter of a century ago. For their abduction and certain murder the cops arrested back then a homeless man that went by the name of Terry Scrape, now deceased, who from the very first moment protested his innocence.
Lucas at the time was just a young patrol officer who harbored dreams of becoming a detective, and due to a string of coincidences he got involved with the case right from the beginning. And it was he who discovered Scrape's hide out and orchestrated his arrest. However, apart from an eye witness who said that he was the one behind the crime, the police didn't really have any evidence against him, so they just had to let him lose. A few days later he'd be dead and the case would slip into a cold status. Besides, everyone, apart from Lucas, was convinced that he was the perpetrator, and they no longer thought that they could find the girls alive. Lucas, despite his objections, did nothing to pursue the case, because he didn't want to go head to head with his future boss, who had already made up his mind.
Now, as the middle aged and experienced detective remembers those days, he cannot help but think that everything could have been different. If he didn't back down, if he kept investigating, maybe he could have saved the lives of the girls after all; and prevented some other crimes from being committed as well. The way the killer buried the bodies told him a lot. He was a highly intelligent individual who really knew what he was about, unlike the homeless, kind of stupid and definitely schizophrenic Scrape.

I just love John Sandford's books. They move at such a ripping rate, and the characterisation and scene setting is so good. This is a pretty typical Sandford with the usual multiple murders and some sex thrown in, but it is just a good read. Always a pleasure to have one on the shelf waiting.

I am a die hard fan of John Sandford and the Prey series. Sure at times the novels don't quite meet the 5-star rating but they all add to the mix. Buried Prey is certainly a 5-star with Sandford bravely going back to the beginnings and providing a little insight into Davenport. Although the best way to do that is simply to start from the beginning of the fine series. In this book Sandford still manages to build the suspense despite it being reasonably obvious who was behind the ancient killings. For Sandford fans this is a must - all newcomers start at the beginning of this great series.

This is for all readers who read the prey novels, you dont need me to tell you about them, instead let me say I highly recommend "Buried Prey" I found the usual humour, the terrific story, and a catch up with Weather and Letty, with Weather urging caution and Letty urging Lucas to take out the bad guy, great stuff, what more could you ask? This author delivers time after time and we get 390 pages, a page turner all the way through.
If you are new to the Prey novels try and locate the earlier ones and read in sequence, or start as near as you can to Lucas and Weathers start of their relationship, dont get me wrong these are not love stories but the relationship makes the stories more interesting.
Enjoy.
