Bad Blood

by John Sandford

Two bodies in two days. One is murder. The other is suicide. Virgil Flowers never imagined that discovering the connection would lead him into the perverse history of the Minnesota farm community, and almost unimaginable darkness.

Bad Blood (Virgil Flowers Series, #4)

by John Sandford

One Sunday in late fall in southern Minnesota, a farmer brings a load of soybeans to a local grain elevator--and a young man hits him on the head with a T-ball bat, drops him into the grain bin, waits until he's sure he's dead (if the blow doesn't kill him, the smothering grain surely will), and then calls the sheriff to report the "accident." Suspicious, the sheriff quickly breaks the kid down... and the next day the boy's found hanging in his cell. Remorse? The sheriff's not so sure, and in fact she's beginning to wonder if one of her own men might not be responsible. She has no choice but to bring in outside help, and investigator Virgil Flowers of the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is her man (in more ways than one-- the sheriff's awfully attractive, he notices). When Virgil investigates, though, what at first seems fairly simple quickly becomes very complicated as he begins to uncover a multigeneration, multifamily conspiracy-- a series of crimes of such monstrosity that, even though he's seen an awful lot in his life, Virgil has difficulty in comprehending it... and in figuring out what to do next. Filled with the brilliant plotting and compulsively readable prose that are John Sandford's hallmarks, Bad Blood is another masterpiece by one of our very best suspense writers.

Broken Prey (Lucas Davenport #16)

by John Sandford

The first body is of a young woman, found on a Minneapolis riverbank, her throat cut, her body scourged and put on display. Whoever did this, Lucas Davenport knows, is pushed by brain chemistry. There is something wrong with him. This isn't a bad love affair.<P> The second body is found three weeks later, in a farmhouse six miles south. Same condition, same display--except this time it is a man. Nothing to link the two victims, nothing to indicate that the killings end here.<P> "This guy..." Lucas said. He took a deep breath, let it out as a sigh. "This guy is going to bust our chops." <P> And soon he is going to do far, far worse than that...

Buried Prey

by John Sandford

When a whole block is torn down in central Minneapolis to make way for a new housing development, an unpleasant surprise is unearthed. The bodies of two girls, wrapped in plastic, are discovered underneath an old house. It looks like they've been down there a long time. Lucas Davenport knows exactly how long. In 1985, Davenport was a young cop just about to be promoted out of uniform, despite a reputation for playing fast and loose with the rules. A superb undercover guy, he was part of the massive police effort that followed the kidnapping of two girls who were never found again, dead or alive. The searches turned up nothing, so when the suspected kidnapper was killed in a shoot-out, the case was closed. But not for Davenport. He'd gotten deep into the case, and while he was convinced the suspect knew something, he didn't think he was the perpetrator - something just felt off. He argued hard about it to his bosses, but nobody wanted to hear. Until now. With the bodies discovered, the case is dusted off, just to tie a bow around it - but there's something wrong with the evidence. There are indications of tampering. Police tampering. And as Davenport investigates, it becomes clear: It wasn't just the bodies that were buried, but the truth - and there are a lot of people with a very strong stake in that truth never being uncovered.
