Layton had picked the perfect spot to lose his virginity to his girlfriend - an abandoned farmyard in the middle of cornfields. The only problem was something smelled bad....
He mentioned it to a county deputy he knew, and when they looked, they found a body stuffed down a cistern. By the time Lucas Davenport was called in, the police were up to fifteen bodies and counting. The victims had been killed over many years, one every summer. How could this have happened without anybody noticing?
Davenport hunts. The stakes are high. The killer is practiced and prepared. It's no easy chase. Excellent.
narrator could be better,otherwise up to the usual john Sanford standard. can't say much more.
This is book twenty something in the John Sandford Lucas Davenport series and, in my view, probably the best so far. Sandford's dialogue is top notch and although the "hero" has matured somewhat and become a steady family man his original character remains and the familiar side-kicks retain their well-described personalities. It does it for me and will satisfy all Sandford enthusiasts. The reader did well, not an easy task this one with so many male cops and characters, and made it an easy though gripping engagement. Highly recommended for those who like the genre and the author.
