Publisher's Summary

In Naked Prey, John Sandford puts Lucas Davenport through some changes. His old boss, Rose Marie Roux, has moved up to the state level and taken Lucas with her, creating a special troubleshooter job for him for the cases that are too complicated or politically touchy for others to handle. In addition, Lucas is now married and a new father, both of which are fine with him: He doesn't mind being a family man. But he is a little worried. For every bit of peace you get, you have to pay - and he's waiting for the bill.

It comes in the form of two people found hanging from a tree in the woods of northern Minnesota. What makes it particularly sensitive is that the bodies are of a black man and a white woman, and they're naked. "Lynching" is the word that everybody's trying not to say - but, as Lucas begins to discover, in fact the murders are not what they appear to be, and they are not the end of the story. There is worse to come - much, much worse.

Filled with the rich characterization and exceptional drama that are his hallmarks, this is Sandford's most suspenseful novel yet.

    Don't know what I want to be when I grow up. Trip's cool though. Use Audible to make gym-training sane... And rip my imagination.

    "It's Sanford and Your Money's Worth"

    Holy Moley! This is my 21st Sandford/Audio Book and I've never given one less than 13 stars. Have you heard someone say, upon leaving a $100 million plus summer action/adventure movie, "Well, regardless of everything, you can totally see the money they spent up there on the screen."? Well that's the thing about Sanford's novels - he gives me back the money and time I've invested in his books - and more.

    Naked Prey's plotted tighter than a beach bunny's bikini with character's sharp as a gossip's tongue. Plus Richard Ferrone's partnered with Sanford often enough to execute the twists and turns of Lucas Davenport's adventures like a Top-Gun pilot.

    'Naked Prey' introduces Letty West, a new character who I really wanted to survive 'Naked Prey's ending... But knowing Sandford, you never know... Nope, never. As always, even though 'Naked Prey' stands alone as a story, I recommend that you start listening to Lucas Davenport from the beginning. That's the strength of Audible, the books are never "out-of-print" so a series character can mature right along with us.

    If you like cop-plots - I recommend 'Naked Prey' with 15 stars.

    I hope this series continues until Lucas and Weather are grandparents. Their children can take up where the parents left off.

    "Meet Letty West!"

    Loved this book. Letty West is one of the best character additions to this great series. She appears in subsequent novels in the series and she is a fabulous character. And this is the book where she makes her debut.

    My husband and I use audio books so we can read the same book at the same time. This way we can discuss and have fun listening together.

    Lucan Davenpor, Del and introcused two new wonderful charactors with the BCA.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, the fires at the West house.

    "Another great one"

    Sandford just gets better. Each one of the Prey series is fantastic to me. I love they way they build on each other. Sandford doesn't leave a cliff hanger like the old serials did in the movies but his books sure lead you to wanting to read the next book in the series. Davenport or Mitch Rapp. Maybe they are equal in my mind. Both are dynamite character's. Enjoy.

    "Just can't get enough Sandford!"

    I love Sandford books but recently been hesitant to purchase them thinking that Lucas Davenport is going to get old and boring. Sandford Never Disappoints. this book is excellent even if you read the later books where he already has some characters introduced by the story you'll still love it. I am not going to hesitate in getting a Sanford book in the future and now going through my library to see if there are any I haven't listened to yet.

    Im suprised there isn't a whole slew of movies based on Davenport.

    "Love this character."

    A great not perfect protagonist. Wonderful story without having to suspend believability. Would like a more versatile narrative., but Will continue to buy this series.

    Story
    "Lucas, Weather, Sam nòw Letty"
    If you could sum up Naked Prey in three words, what would they be?

    "Not a lynching" and it isn't, she white, he's black they're both hung by the neck. Left hanging there in the woods on a cold winter night. Race has nothing to do with it they're both bad, bad people.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Letty, how can you not! 13 going on 30, a crappy 22 a bunch of traps and there's no stopping her.


    What does Richard Ferrone bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He's been the voice of Lucas so long it seems natural.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It's been so long since I read the original I'm sure that colored the audio book


    Any additional comments?

    One of the best Davenport novels of the bunch.
