Lucas Davenport tracks a prolific serial killer in this nail-biting number one New York Times best seller from 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 US 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 is] his usual entertaining self in this hard-core adventure.... Davenport is an inspired creation." (Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review)
"The Prey novels are wildly entertaining with their clever plotting, mordant humor, and smart-ass dialogue. This one doesn't break the pattern." (Booklist)
