Workers, demolishing an old house close to downtown Minneapolis, find the bodies of two girls wrapped in plastic under a concrete basement floor. Lucas Davenport goes back in time to one of his first cases in this book about two girls missing since the mid 1980s.
Lucas describes his first contact with the job: “In his first year as a cop, working patrol and then briefly, as a dope guy, he’d felt that he was learning things at a ferocious rate: about the street, life, death, sex, love, hate, fear, stupidity, jealousy, and accident, and all the other things that brought citizens in contact with the cops.”
