Summary:

Lucas Davenport's first case as a U.S. Marshal sends him into uncharted territory in the thrilling new novel in the #1 New York Times-bestselling series.

The man was smart and he didn't mind killing people. Welcome to the big leagues, Davenport.

Thanks to some very influential people whose lives he saved, Lucas is no longer working for the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, but for the U.S. Marshals Service, and with unusual scope. He gets to pick his own cases, whatever they are, wherever they lead him.

And where they've led him this time is into real trouble. A Biloxi, Mississippi, drug-cartel counting house gets robbed, and suitcases full of cash disappear, leaving behind five bodies, including that of a six-year-old girl. Davenport takes the case, which quickly spirals out of control, as cartel assassins, including a torturer known as the 'Queen of home-improvement tools' compete with Davenport to find the Dixie Hicks shooters who knocked over the counting house. Things get ugly real fast, and neither the cartel killers nor the holdup men give a damn about whose lives Davenport might have saved; to them, he's just another large target.

Filled with his trademark razor-sharp plotting and some of the best characters in suspense fiction, Golden Prey is further reason why 'Sandford has always been at the top of any list of great mystery writers' (The Huffington Post).

Genres:

  • James E

    I am a HUGE John Sandford fan and while this wasn't his best Prey book, I still give it five stars. As usual Richard Ferrone did a great job with the narration.

  • Jane K

    This Sanford book was a bit more gruesome than his past ones, so I enjoyed it less. The reader was good at voice changing, but had a bit too much accent for my taste.

  • J R

    Pretty good story. Not the best by the author or narrator.

  • Doug S

    My wife and I both love the Lucas Davenport/ Virgil Flowers novels. This one does not disappoint. Richard Ferrone narrates these perfectly.
