Don't miss this “sexy, bloody thriller"(Publishers Weekly) in #1 New York Times bestselling author John Sandford's Prey series...

The first body is of a young woman, found on a Minneapolis riverbank, her throat cut, her body scourged and put on display. Whoever did this, Lucas Davenport knows, is pushed by brain chemistry. There is something wrong with him. This isn’t a bad love affair.

The second body is found three weeks later, in a farmhouse six miles south. Same condition, same display—except this time it is a man. Nothing to link the two victims, nothing to indicate that the killings end here.
“This guy…” Lucas said. He took a deep breath, let it out as a sigh. “This guy is going to bust our chops.” 

And soon he is going to do far, far worse than that…

    By RGill46 usual...scary as hell and creepy. I'm 85 and finally learning to read the "f" word without flinching. Don't know if that's good or bad. Signed on for the next book a few pages before this one ended. Hope they go on forever...or at least while I'm still around, reading in bed with my iPad. Never too old!

    Definitely one of the best in the series. Bloody, gruesome, twisted, and a roller coaster ride at the end. Straight ahead Davenport. No downtime. No chance to catch a breath. The crime scenes are both horrific and scary and the bad guys are right out of a Stephen King nightmare. Just ask Sloan. He and Davenport go for the ride of their lives in this one and with Sanford at the wheel, you will too. Geoff Charles

  • Another great Prey novel

    Twisting and bloody. Davenport great as usual.
  • Getting better

    By DougScott
    As the books grow in number, and move through the years, it's good to see how modern tools of communication are being included, i.e. the cell phone, etc. Seems to make the stories more believable.
