A Lucas Davenport thriller by internationally bestselling novelist John Sandford
In the richest neighbourhood of Minneapolis, two elderly women lie murdered in their home, beaten to death with a metal pipe, the rooms ransacked. It’s clearly a random break-in by someone looking for drug money: an open-and-shut homicide case.
But as he looks more closely, Lucas Davenport begins to suspect that the handful of small items that were stolen from the crime scene might have more significance than anyone initially realised. Gradually, a pattern begins to emerge – and it will lead Davenport somewhere he never expected.
