Sudden Prey

Book 8, Prey

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Grabs you by the shirt from the start. (Chicago Tribune) Davenport falls prey to the purest-and deadliest-criminal motivation: revenge.

From Publishers Weekly

Apr 29, 1996 – The title tells it true, and applies not only to myriad characters in Sandford's electrifying eighth "Prey" thriller, but also to the novel's readers. From the opening scene, in which series hero, Minneapolis cop Lucas Davenport, and his team stalk and kill a female bank robber, the story will clamp down like a bear trap on all who open its covers. That robber is Davenport's prey, but those beloved by the cop and his men become prey in turn when the slain thief's husband, Dick LaChaise, and his two sidekicks, all ex-bikers with militia mentalities, vow revenge unto death. Davenport, who in his spare time designs computer games that have made him wealthy, soon learns two disturbing facts: that suicidal enemies are close to unstoppable, and that his addiction to this real-life "game" is powerful enough to put even his loved ones at risk. Further problems ensue from the dangerous presence of a crooked cop, and from the refusal by Davenport's lover, a dedicated surgeon, to take up Davenport's offer to seclude her safely. The stakes are high, the characters rich, the action relentless-here's a thriller that will make your hair stand on end.

Customer Reviews

First will not be last

This was my first novel by John sandford and I was very impressed. He seems to combine the mystery writing skills of Michael Conelly with the excitement and intrigue of a Vince Flynn novel.

What I liked most about his writing is how it just smoothly flowed from chapter to chapter. The author introduces us to some very interesting characters on both sides of the law and makes their every move exciting to follow.

Can't wait to read the next one.

Never a disappointment!
