A terrifying Lucas Davenport thriller from #1 New York Times–bestselling author and Pulitzer Prize–winner John Sandford.
They call them Travelers. They move from city to city, panhandling, committing no crimes—they just like to stay on the move. And now somebody is killing them.

Lucas Davenport’s adopted daughter, Letty, is home from college when she gets a phone call from a woman Traveler she’d befriended in San Francisco. The woman thinks somebody’s killing her friends, she’s afraid she knows who it is, and now her male companion has gone missing. She’s hiding out in North Dakota, and she doesn’t know what to do.

Letty tells Lucas she’s going to get her, and, though he suspects Letty’s getting played, he volunteers to go with her. When he hears the woman’s story, though, he begins to think there’s something in it. Little does he know. In the days to come, he will embark upon an odyssey through a subculture unlike any he has ever seen, a trip that will not only put the two of them in danger—but just may change the course of his life.

    Sandford never lets me down. G.P. Is another winner.

    Sanford keeps the plots strong and continues to deliver outstanding dialogue and character painting. From the visceral feedback of Lucas Davenport's Porsche in downshift to the chilling behavior of a recidivist villain, Gathering Prey glistens to the last page. DM Muhleman

    John Sandford has done it again. I've been a fan since the 90's and have yet to be even a little disappointed. Great work by one of the best writers in the business. Keep up the good work.

    Fun read but it is too obvious what is going to happen. All in all it was a good book. I would recommend it to friends.
