Book Description

May 15 2012 Prey
Lucas Davenport has seen many terrible murder scenes. This is one of the worst. In the Minnesota town of Wayzata, an entire family has been killed—husband, wife, two kids, dogs. On the wall, in blood: “Were coming.” No apostrophe.There’s something about the scene that tugs at Lucas’s cop instincts—it looks an awful lot like the kind of scorched-earth retribution he’s seen from Mexican drug gangs. But this is a seriously upscale town, the husband ran a modest software company, the wife dabbled in local politics. None of it seems to fit.Until it does.

Review

“If you haven’t read Sandford, you have been missing one of the great summer-read novelists of all time.  Lucas Davenport, the policeman hero of the Prey novels, is a hard dude . . . but not without a sense of humor, and that makes him special.  Sandford writes real-guy novels, but—judging by my wife and her sisters—real girls like him too.”
—Stephen King



“Sandford’s ability to sustain this perfect series [. . .] must be a cause of envy to other writers, but grateful readers greet the annual appearance of Minnesota cop Lucas Davenport with joy, then plan for a sleepless, page-turning night.”
Cleveland Plain-Dealer



“Sandford’s talent is such that this series never grows stale, or boring, or forgettable.  As author and hero age, readers can hope that the best is yet to be.”
Richmond Times-Dispatch

4.0 out of 5 stars Finished too quickly.... May 15 2012
By Luanne Ollivier #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
John Sandford is back with the latest installment (#22) - Stolen Prey - in his wildly successful and hugely popular series featuring Lucas Davenport, an agent for the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Investigation.

"Lucas's job at the BCA was mostly self-invented, and included politically sensitive cases, or cases that might attract a lot of media attention." When a pair of tweekers rob him at an ATM, breaking his wrist and damaging his ego, he embarks on a long term mission to find them. This is put on the back burner when the superintendent of the BCA calls - a case that is definitely going to be in the spotlight needs Davenport's skills. An entire family has been found murdered - slaughtered really, tortured in unimaginable ways. Lucas's investigation leads places no one saw coming - this isn't just a spree killer. It looks like a Mexican gang hit. What could this software engineer have done to bring this wrath on his family? Soon enough the DEA and a pair of Mexican Federales are also on the case. But everyone seems to have their own priorities concerning the case.....

I've always enjoyed Lucas and his irreverent flaunting of the rules. He's getting older and little mellower, but still has no problem side stepping protocol to get things done. I love the barbed banter between himself and team members Del Capslock, Jensen and Shrake, but no Davenport book is complete without Virgil Flowers. Those tweekers robbing ATM's? Flowers has been put to work on the case - which seems to be leading to stolen.....horse manure?

"Somewhere along the line, it occurred to him that he hadn't spoken to Virgil Flowers. He'd probably taken the day off, and knowing Flowers, he'd done it in a boat.

I like reading the Lucas Davenport stories. I have read quite a few and am still collecting them. I would recommend this book for readers who enjoy a combination of murder and humour.

5.0 out of 5 stars Continuous action in following the money June 23 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This very entertaining novel by John Sandford features mainly a Mexican drug cartel's money laundering scheme gone awry in the Minneapolis/St Paul area when a small group of computer hackers and skilled financial specialists horn in on the cartel's illicitly obtained funds. This is the second book I have read by the author featuring Lucas Davenport as the main character. I found it more enjoyable than the first book because many of the characters in the first book reappeared in the second. The author's style is continuous action with many suspenseful incidents and the humorous banter between police officers interspersed throughout the story. It is a hard book to put down once you start reading.

Suspense increased with every page turn. Can't wait for a sequel if there is one. Sanford is a master at storytelling.

5.0 out of 5 stars A well written story Jan. 15 2014
By Philip
Format:Kindle Edition
Stolen Prey is a well written and captivating story, with an insightful touch that comes from an array of fascinating characters led by Lucas Davenport. These characters stand out in their unique ways. With an interwoven plot that is captivating and a setting that is attractive as well, Stolen Prey is in my opinion the best in the Prey series. The fast pacing came in handy to keep the edge throughout the story that made it gripping read it is. It reminds me of Triple Agent, Double Cross. The rich prose and effective dialogue made Stolen Prey the splendid piece of writing that it is, and attest to Sandford's skill as a brilliant writer.
