Now that he has a chance to investigate it all over again, one thing is becoming increasingly clear: It wasn't just the bodies that were buried. It was the truth.
Now a house has been torn down, the bodies of two girls wrapped in plastic have been found, and Davenport is back on the case. 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. In , 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. But they had unfinished business, he and Grant. One way or the other, he was going to see it through to the end. Golden Prey. Welcome to the big leagues, Davenport.
Thanks to some very influential people whose lives he saved, Lucas is no longer working for the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, but for the U. Marshals Service, and with unusual scope. He gets to pick his own cases, whatever they are, wherever they lead him. A Biloxi, Mississippi, drug-cartel counting house gets robbed, and suitcases full of cash disappear, leaving behind five bodies, including that of a six-year-old girl.
Extreme Prey. His friend the governor is just cranking up a presidential campaign, though, and he invites Lucas to come along as part of his campaign staff. Gathering Prey. They call them Travelers. They drift from city to city, always staying on the move. Now somebody is murdering them, one by one. And the woman is very afraid. Field of Prey. When the county deputy took a look, he found a body stuffed in a cistern.

Then another. And another. By the time Lucas Davenport was called in, it was fifteen and counting, the victims killed over just as many summers, regular as clockwork. How could this happen in a town so small without anyone noticing? And with the latest victim only two weeks dead, Davenport knows the killer is still at work, still close by. Most likely someone the folks of Red Wing see every day.
Silken Prey. And one billionaire heiress so dangerous in so many ways. All hell has broken loose in the capital. An influential state senator has been caught with something very, very nasty on his office computer. As Davenport investigates, the trail leads to a political fixer who has disappeared, then—troublingly—to the Minneapolis police department itself, and most unsettling of all, to a woman who could give Machiavelli lessons in manipulation. She has very definite ideas about the way the world should work—along with the money, ruthlessness, and cold-blooded will to make it happen.
Stolen Prey. Lucas Davenport has seen many terrible murder scenes. This is one of the worst. In the Minnesota town of Wayzata, an entire family has been killed—husband, wife, two kids, dogs. But this is a seriously upscale town, the husband ran a modest software company, the wife dabbled in local politics. None of it seems to fit. Until it does…. Buried Prey.
