Publisher's Summary

Lucas Davenport confronts an old nemesis, now more powerful than ever as a US senator, in the thrilling new novel in the number one New York Times best-selling Prey series.

Lucas Davenport had crossed paths with her before.

A rich psychopath, Taryn Grant had run successfully for the US Senate, where Lucas had predicted she'd fit right in. He was also convinced that she'd been responsible for three murders, though he'd never been able to prove it. Once a psychopath had gotten that kind of rush, though, he or she often needed another fix, so he figured he might be seeing her again.

He was right. A federal marshal now, with a very wide scope of investigation, he's heard rumors that Grant has found her seat on the Senate intelligence committee, and the contacts she's made from it, to be very...useful. Pinning those rumors down was likely to be just as difficult as before, and considerably more dangerous.

But they had unfinished business, he and Grant. One way or the other, he was going to see it through to the end.

A masterpiece!

I have listened to every John Sanford book every written and this one hit a home run. A tight story, great character development, and Lucas Davenport hit his stride as a US Marshall. His side kicks Bob and Raye provide great banter as they navigate through the investigation. There are many great detective thriller writers but I feel like I have grown up with Lucas and his family and John Sanford always seems to deliver with a great story. Now time to wait for Virgil Flowers turn at bat.

STILL WORTH IT

Sanford's new mystery, Twisted Prey, is not quite as good as his prior novels, but it's still a well-written story and worth a listen. Richard Ferrone's unique voice and narration, including his playful interpretation of Sanford's witticism and droll remarks throughout the story, are again top-notch.

Not as good

I didn't enjoy this prey novel as much as most. I think it's because I did me find the bad guys interesting. I don't care for books about politics or the military. I'm sure others will like this book more than I did. How can anyone not love this narrator? He's always great.

John Sandford seems to like female antagonists!

This is the second novel in the 28 book Lucas Davenport series that has him working for the US Marshall Service rather than the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. Davenport's family plays a relatively small part. In general I find novels in this series that have larger roles for his physician wife Weather or their adopted college age daughter Letty or their young son Sam are more interesting. Twisted Prey is an outstanding modern detective suspense mystery despite the small roles of Davenport's family. The antagonist is a very clever US senator named Taryn Grant who is a psychopath with presidential ambitions who hires people to kill her enemies and then personally kills the hit men to protect her identity. She is smart enough that even Lucas Davenport is unable to arrest her for her crimes. Richard Ferrone narrates as usual for John Sandford novels. Ferrone is not one of the best at his craft, but he is excellent. I recommend this complex novel for those who like detective suspense mysteries.

Good story but...

Well written, good story and decent characters. I wish Sandford would leave out his obvious personal politics. All the bad people are Democrats and all the good ones are Republicans. It gets old quickly, I have read 3 of the "Prey" series and it is in them all. I have read my last Sandford.

Not up to par

If you read all his books you'll know this was not up to par. There is no real thrill to it, no mystery, just a slow boring read.

One of Sandford's best.

A really exciting book from start to finish. Lots of action, great plot and fun characters. I have read all of the Davenport books at least twice and this one is among the best And all of them are great.

I waited a year for this garbage!

I’ve listened to all 29 prey books and this one is the worst of the series. The character Taryn Grant should have died in Silken Prey. Very boring character and story line. It’s like the Author doesn’t really want to continue the series. Unless you listened to the first 28 books like I did, don’t bother with this one.

Richard Ferrone is wonderful as always, but had absolutely nothing to work with.

Not one of Sandford’s better efforts.

Lucas needs to go back to the MNBCA. The US Marshall thing is kind of boring.

Lucas is back and he is aging well!! So glad he left Lettie in school. He is perfect without her.
