Overview

Lucas Davenport tracks a prolific serial killer in the newest nail-biter by #1 New York Times-bestselling author 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 . . .

Sandford does it again. Your senses will react as if you were there instead of reading the book!

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.

Great action, but very narrow plot. Time to move on from Bob and Rae.

Sandford describes the minds of criminals as if he lives there!

An absorbing plot and an intense pursuit made all the better with Davenport's FBI compatriots. This villain is truly diabolical. Full disclosure, I am a longtime fan: Sandford reigns with authentic second-to-none dialog, story telling laser focused on the characters (versus the writing craft), and exceptional insight on Americana.
