He didn’t wake up thinking about murder. He woke up thinking about the blonde on his bed and a stack of pancakes…Funny how things work out.

When Davenport is called to the white-stuccoed house after the party, he knows it’s for no usual case. For one thing, the strangulation victim is Alie'e Maison, she of the knife-edge cheekbones and jade-green eyes: as models go, one of the biggest. For another, there are a few small complications—such as the drugs in her body and the evidence that she had recently made love to a woman; such as the fact that one of Lucas’ own men had been at the party and is now a suspect; such as the little surprise they are all about to find when they search the house: a second body, stuffed in a closet, with a deep dent in its skull.

The whole case is going to be like this, Lucas knows—secrets piled upon secrets, the ground shifting constantly under his feet. But even he cannot predict the earth tremors he is about to feel, when an old lover comes back into his life, a woman he has never been able to forget … whose own secrets may turn out to be the most perplexing ones of all.

Quotes & Awards

  • “When you come out of the twists and turns that are Easy Prey, it is a marvel how [Sandford] could do this…He’s a writer in control of his craft.”

    Chicago Sun-Times

  • You won’t want to miss it. Los Angeles Times

    “Captivating.

  • “Crackerjack suspense…[Sandford’s] at the top of his game again with Easy Prey.”

    New York Post

  • “The dialogue is deft, the melodrama masterfully orchestrated, and the conclusion truly culminant. As secrets explode, as bullets fly and bodies fall, and as the ground keeps shifting, there’s hardly time to keep up with the spectacle.”

    Los Angeles Times

  • “Rapid-fire action…Sharply evocative.”

    Minneapolis Star Tribune

  • Easy Prey is hard to put down.”

    Richmond Times-Dispatch

  • “Lucas Davenport is always in top form, and with Easy Prey, Sandford has another winner to add to the Prey books.”

    Orlando Sentinel

  • “[An] ever-entertaining series. As always, it’s a joy to follow this rare cop who gets led more often by his gut instinct than by clues. His humor, understated and perverse, can be wildly funny, and the people he runs across are shrewdly conceived originals.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Wildly successful…Contains all the elements fans have come to expect: solid plot, gallows humor…sex, and the likeable, self-assured Davenport.”

    Booklist

  • “A grand guignol of a climax.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • A USA Today Bestseller

    " I find the more Lucas Davenport books I read, the more I like them. It's always a different type of thriller, but with the same characters that you come to enjoy. This one was good, with an ongoing killer who I never would have guessed in a million years! "

    " Very entertaining. Sandford does a great job with dialogue. The plot is complicated but the resolution rather forced. "

    " a fun yet light read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marion | 1/5/2014

    " the names of the characters drove me a little nuts, a bit too quirky and pretentious but the meat of the book was just fine as usual. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Zelly | 1/4/2014

    " I fell in love with this Author, you can almost taste the scenes as you read along! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Adam | 1/1/2014

    " Nice entry in the Prey series that keeps you guessing. The ending really comes out of left field which is rare for the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bridget | 12/27/2013

    " Not the best of the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ginny | 12/10/2013

    " Not my favorite Lucas Davenport. Too many characters, to many strings, never did understand the way some of the murders figured in. Glad this was not the first one I read or I would have skipped Sanford as a writer and missed out on some good reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kay | 12/9/2013

    " Great vacation reads but hard to put down at night. Not too violent and always lots of twists. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Raymond | 11/13/2013

    " You'd think a book with a murder every other chapter would be exciting for just that reason. Easy Prey isn't. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Temple | 10/24/2013

    " It was ok. I've read better Prey novels. Pretty short. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Dede | 10/12/2013

    " This was the most difficult Prey to get through. Maybe it was just the topic; the whole fashion industry doesn't interest me much. Still, Lucas and his band of merry bad-guy catchers is consistently entertaining and reason enough to continue plodding one's way through the story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Heather Perreault | 5/17/2013

    " An enjoyable murder/mystery/suspense novel, if that's what you're in the mood for. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 3/30/2013

    " good thriller by john sandford "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Colin Kemmis | 3/3/2013

    " Friggin' great from cover to cover. Just about as good as 'eyse of prey', my favorite. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ronald E. | 1/10/2013

    " Lucas Davenport is a wealthy, smart, and risk taking police exec who must solve a Hollywood-like murder. This story leads in many different directions to solve these murders, and the ending is a shocker. Good stuff. "
