“Buried Prey” by John Sanford
I’ve read all of the “prey” books by John Sanford–this one is the twenty-first Lucas Davenport novel.
Davenport, an investigator at the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, is on another case, this one a cold case that has haunted him since being a rookie police officer.
Buried Prey, like all of the prey books, is a fast-moving, solid story that did not let me down. If this story has a weak point, the section of the book titled “Then,” which highlights the original case of two missing girls, is a bit too long for my taste.
This book came up on my library hold list at the perfect time–there’s been lots going on in my life these days, all really good stuff, but I’ve been busy and haven’t had a lot of free time!
So Buried Prey did not let me down–I was able to enjoy this book and not have to think too much! I don’t mean this as a criticism of John Sanford.
I love popular fiction because it’s uncomplicated, easy to read, and lots of fun!
Thankfully, John Sanford has contracted to write two more prey books, http://www.johnsandford.org/faq.html.
I’ll read them both!
