"Layton Carlson Jr. finally got lucky. He'd 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 really bad. He mentioned it to a county deputy he knew, and when the cop took a look, he found a body stuffed down a cistern. And then another, and another. By the time Lucas Davenport was called in, the police were up to fifteen bodies. Lucas found that the victims had been killed over a great many years, one every summer, regular as clockwork. How could this have happened without anybody noticing? Because one thing was for sure: the killer had to live close by"--Back cover.

Davenport #24. A teen uncovers a field that has been used for years by an unsuspected serial killer as a place to leave his corpses.

Hard to believe anyone could get away with killing 15+ people until you look at the statistics, Sanford knows his material as there are several thousand unsolved disappearances each year most are women. Says a lot about our society.

Another good read by John Sandford. Working my way through his list of novels.

Gruesome enough but.... not as flip and smart as the last one I read. The dialogue is off so I hope John Sandford has upped his game to his expected high standard for the new one, Extreme Prey due out shortly.

Agree, the dialogue is not as vivid as the other Prey books. I'm not looking forward to the next Prey book if it is like this one.

Excellent read, excellent ending, but I agree with commenter, myscoot, something about the dialogue was a litte off in this book; maybe forced?

I have read all the "Prey novels" and so far this is the best!

Very enjoyable. Never read a Sandford novel I didn't like, and always look forward to the next.
