Stolen Prey

Book - 2012
Average Rating:
Rate this:
Lucas Davenport has seen many terrible murder scenes. This is one of the worst. In the small Minnesota town of Wayzata, an entire family has been killed--husband, wife, two daughters, dogs.

There's something about the scene that pokes at Lucas's cop instincts--it looks an awful lot like the kind of scorched-earth retribution he's seen in drug killings sometimes. But this is a seriously upscale town, and the husband was an executive vice president at a big bank. It just doesn't seem to fit.

Until it does. And where it leads Lucas will take him into the darkest nightmare of his life.

Lucas Davenport #22 in the series. Stolen Prey starts off with the brutal torture and murder of an entire family...definitely a case for Davenport.

Definitely in the top three of Sandford's Davenport series --- love that Letty!

I thought it was okay but far from his best. Quite predictable

Better than the average thriller. Somewhat captivating. "Me too" on the 7 out of 10 stars

Enjoyable as always. This book made a long wait in an airport bearable. I would love to see more of Letty, she is such an interesting character and her debut is one of my favourite Prey books. Looking forward to the next one.

Another solid outing by John Sandford and Lucas Davenport. This one lacks the gallows humour and cop characters that enlivened his earlier Prey books, but the story is gripping and the villains are perfectly creepy.

Chapter 1, starting at the second sentence:
"Cell phones everywhere. He sometimes felt as though he were caught like a fly in an electronic spiderweb, and anytime anyone, anywhere, had an urge to waste his time, they could reach out and ring his bell."
