Overview

The man was smart and he didn’t mind killing people. Welcome to the big leagues, Davenport. Lucas Davenport’s first case as a U.S. Marshal sends him into uncharted territory, in the thrilling new novel in the #1 New York Times-bestselling series.
 
            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.S. Marshals Service, and with unusual scope. He gets to pick his own cases, whatever they are, wherever they lead him.
             And where they’ve led him this time is into real trouble. 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. Davenport takes the case, which quickly spirals out of control, as cartel assassins, including a torturer known as the “Queen of home-improvement tools” compete with Davenport to find the Dixie Hicks shooters who knocked over the counting house. Things get ugly real fast, and neither the cartel killers nor the holdup men give a damn about whose lives Davenport might have saved; to them, he’s just another large target.
Filled with his trademark razor-sharp plotting and some of the best characters in suspense fiction, Golden Prey is further reason why “Sandford has always been at the top of any list of great mystery writers” (The Huffington Post).

John Sanford keeps producing gems. The only problem is that his books just don't come often enough.

I've read all of the Prey novels and obviously they can't all be superb, but this one is just that. The big change in the career of Lucas Davenport seems to agree with Sandford. The real, tangible characters, the witty repartee, the flow of the story...all Sandford at his best.

If you enjoy the Davenport series this is just another classic example. Smart ass one liners. Perfectly timed with brutal action

Non-stop action. The first chapter had my mouth hanging open and it was uphill from there.

This book was good just like all of John Sandford books are. I skipped a lot of the detail regarding the surroundings, he tends to drag out alot of that, but otherwise another superb story.

Lucas Davenport is back and this time as a US Marshall. I've followed this series since the beginning, and Lucas has made a number of changes over the years with the one constant being his quick wit and love of the hunt. Those things haven't changed, but this time he doesn't have his usual group to depend on and he has to figure out how to navigate away from his home turf. While I certainly missed the usual crowd - Del, Jenkins, Shrake, etc - we get a couple of new additions to help with the hunt. Bob and Rae are a good fit for Lucas and it looks like we'll be seeing more of them in the series. Sandford has taken us inside the minds of his bad guys before, but we get a bit more of that here and this one does get violent and even gruesome as our bad guy has some even worse guys looking for him. In the end, this wasn't my favorite Davenport book, but it is good and Richard Ferrone narrated it wonderfully. I'll be interested to see what's next for this series and where this new direction leads.
