Finished John Sandford’s latest, “Buried Prey” last week. It’s one of the better “Prey” novels to come out in awhile. The book features a long flashback to Lucas Davenport’s early career. No wife, no kids, no old injuries slowing him down. Sandford finally let Davenport loose again. The characters get to have fun. When I finished, I thought it was the best book of the series. Reflecting on it a bit, it’s not. However, this book has broken up what has become a stale and predictable storyline of an aging family-man-cop (Davenport) who is probably coming to the end of his literary-worthy life.
