Pulitzer Prize-winner John Sandford’s tenth Prey novel is every bit as fresh and as riveting as the first. In this latest addition to the series, the inimitable Lucas Davenport faces a daunting adversary unlike any he has met before. Clara Rinker is the best hitwoman in the business. An attractive, well-spoken southern woman, she does her job, collects her money, and disappears. But when a prominent defense attorney hires her for a hit in Minnesota, her life gets complicated. A witness survives, and she’s on Lucas Davenport’s turf. Now she must use her superior cunning and intelligence to eliminate loose ends, and Lucas is the most worrisome loose end of all. Gifted narrator Richard Ferrone has enhanced all ten of Sanford’s gripping novels with his own brand of unrelenting energy. Under his spell, the brilliant characters and nonstop action contrive to keep you up into the late hours of the night.

    " I liked that both villians were women - though very different women. I always like Sanford's prey novels. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenn | 1/25/2014

    " Yet another great thriller starring Lucas Davenport. There's never a bad book in this bunch. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tom | 1/18/2014

    " The first of two Clara Rinker books. Super fast read. All interesting and worthwhile characters. Fun read with some horrific murders!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne | 1/13/2014

    " Always love John Sanford "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bruce Snell | 1/11/2014

    " This is the first of Sandford's books that I have read, and it was good enough that I now have 7 more on my shelf. The story concerns a murder investigation, in which a hitwoman ends up killing six people. It was a good read that kept me interested all the way to the end - even though there were no surprises. Just good police work, and good luck - and not enough people realize how much luck is involved in good police work. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ginny | 1/6/2014

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mel Allred | 12/28/2013

    " John Sandford has always been a decent mystery novel author. I enjoy them when I'm in the mood for something that's dark and perhaps a little more explicit than a more prurient person would enjoy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dale | 10/23/2013

    " Some interesting questions of ethics raised in this installment. As usual, Sandford lays it out for you, but doesn't brow beat you with it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Breia | 9/30/2013

    " Not too bad, definitely an interesting story but I skipped past most of what was going on between the two "bad guys". I am reading these totally out of order so I never know if he;s married or single, got the daughter or not... always a surprise! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 11/15/2012

    " Bam! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ruth Ann | 8/18/2011

    " This book was recently made into a USA Network movie. I wasn't sure why they picked this title - Lucas has no personal life in this one, but after reading it, I can see why. Lots of action, and a great introduction to Clara Rinker. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris | 4/28/2011

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amanda | 2/20/2011

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vfields | 12/2/2010

    " This is one of the most intresting "bad guys" who is really a professional killer, Clara Rinker, who is one of the best in the business. She puts the team on their toes and keeps them there. She gains their respect as they hunt her with endless determination. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mitch | 12/1/2010

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jaclyn | 11/14/2010

    " Only issue with this book was that it was hard to get back into it after pausing or being interrupted. Great story-line and the ending is completely unexpected. "
