Publisher's Summary

The extraordinary new Lucas Davenport thriller from number-one New York Times best-selling author and Pulitzer Prize winner John Sandford.

The night after the fourth of July, Layton Carlson, Jr., of Red Wing, Minnesota, finally got lucky. And unlucky.

He’d picked the perfect spot to lose his virginity to his girlfriend, an abandoned farmyard in the middle of cornfields: nice, private, and quiet. The only problem was...something smelled bad - like, really bad. He mentioned it to a county deputy he knew, and when the cop took a look, he found a body stuffed down a cistern. And then another, and another.

By the time Lucas Davenport was called in, the police were up to 15 bodies and counting. And as if that wasn’t bad enough, when Lucas began to investigate, he made some disturbing discoveries of his own. The victims had been killed over a great many years, one every summer, regular as clockwork. How could this have happened without anybody noticing?

Because one thing was for sure: The killer had to live close by. He was probably even someone they saw every day....

    "John Sanford only gets better!!"

    Its like Christmas morning every time John Sanford comes out with a new "Prey" book! Field of Prey delivers in every possible way. It is a remarkable mystery and a good old fashioned who done it. Sanford's ability to present the story while alternating between the killer and law enforcement's experience and still deliver mind blowing twists is unparalleled. Field of Prey keeps you reading no matter how hard life tries to pull you away. The climatic ending is one of Sanford's best

    "Just continued excellence."

    One of the best in the series. Characterization developed in more detail than many and just an all around outstanding effort by Mr Sanford. Looking forward to his next effort.

    "Intense and gory"

    I had a bit of trouble with the disgusting aspects of the story which needed to be there for any sense of reality but the book was intense and kept my attention through till the end. A good overall story and narration.

    One of his 2 or 3 best. Well written, good characters, even Flowers' references. Can't wait for the next one.

    "Another Winner"

    Richard Ferrone does a great job with the character of Lucas Davenport. For me, he is Lucas Davenport. In the last six weeks I have listened to 24 books in this series and loved the character development. I love when Lucas is conflicted and I love Letty and Weather. Can't wait to see where Letty ends up.

    "Good Story for Fans of the Series"

    I have enjoyed all of the books in the series although the endings are somewhat predictable. This book had an interesting twist but, in the end, no real surprises.

    Story
    "So sad, last Lucas Davenport book!"
    What made the experience of listening to Field of Prey the most enjoyable?

    The crime scene in this one is disturbing, but the chase is really well-done. For the first time in the series Lucas can't figure it out. He resorts to tactics that are out-of-the-ordinary, but ramp up the tension as he races to find the killer before another woman dies.


    Any additional comments?

    It's really great to see Letty being given more of a role as she gets older. Is there a Letty Davenport series in the works?
