Overview

Lucas Davenport tracks a prolific serial killer in the new nail-biting #1 New York Times-bestseller from John Sandford.

Clayton Deese looks like a small-time criminal, muscle for hire when his loan shark boss needs to teach someone a lesson. Now, seven months after a job that went south and landed him in jail, Deese has skipped out on bail, and the U.S. Marshals come looking for him. They don't much care about a low-level guy--it's his boss they want--but Deese might be their best chance to bring down the whole operation.

Then, they step onto a dirt trail behind Deese's rural Louisiana cabin and find a jungle full of graves.

Now Lucas Davenport is on the trail of a serial killer who has been operating for years without notice. His quarry is ruthless, and--as Davenport will come to find--full of surprises . . .

This thriller has a scary bad guy and a good story to invest in. Always love the banter between Lucas and Rae and Bob

There’s just something about a John Sanford novel that makes you happy that you’re a reader. All the Prey novels are different and have a great hook to reel you in. Don’t miss this one!

This story was everything a Lucas Davenport should be; weird, funny, exciting, suitably complicated and well written.

I read a lot of crime/mystery books. and Sanford’s is always more true to life than most- from the dialogue to the bad guys to the screwups. They are easy and entertaining books and I always look forward to them. It’s a laid back style hat is entertaining and often makes me laugh. I’m a Minnesotan and I can totally relate to the dialogue , people and places.

Bit of a disappointment, I'm afraid. Although the mystery/manhunt aspect is good, the dialogue is dull & seems like we've read it all before. There's nothing new here, just a darker plot with vicious bad guys & little humour to alleviate a more violent than usual story line.

If you have read and liked the Prey novels you will enjoy this one. Appreciated the humor among characters.
