Years ago, Lucas Davenport almost died at the hands of Clara Rinker, a pleasant, soft-spoken, low-key Southerner, and the best hitwoman in the business. Now retired and living in Mexico, she nearly dies herself when a sniper kills her boyfriend, the son of a local druglord, and while the boy's father vows vengeance, Rinker knows something he doesn't: The boy wasn't the target, she was, and now she is going to have to disappear to find the killer herself.

The FBI and DEA draft Davenport to help track her down, and with his fiance deep in wedding preparations, he's really just as happy to go, but he has no idea what he's getting into. For Rinker is as unpredictable as ever, and between her, her old bosses in the St. Louis mob, the Mexican druglord, and the combined, sometimes warring, forces of U.S. law enforcement, this is one case that will get more dangerous as it goes along. And when the crossfire comes, anyone standing in the middle won't stand a chance.

Filled with the rich characterization and exceptional drama that are his hallmarks, Mortal Prey proves that John Sandford just keeps getting better. Download and start listening now!

    " I am a fan of Sandford because his books are usually set in the northern Wisconsin/Twin Cities area. However, I've been disappointed in the last few I read. This one was not in the usual setting, but actually one of his better books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anne Hartman | 2/10/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michael | 1/6/2012

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rick | 12/30/2011

    " This is a really good Lucas Davenport novel. The bad ... person is unlike any of I have seen before. The complexity of the effort to track down the killer is extensive, and the story is very good. The killer's personality is developed, unusual and interesting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 frankie | 12/8/2011

    " I have read the entire "Prey" series...I think! Lucas Davenport rocks and the writing is excellent! You seriously cannot put these books down. I was not really a big crime/suspense reader until I read these. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lavada Dee | 9/5/2011

    " Another great Lucas Davenport mystery or suspense. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jeff | 8/25/2011

    " If it wasn't for Rinker the sniper who happens to be a woman... it was pretty much a "blah" read. I didn't know how I felt or how to feel after reading it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 kenisha | 8/23/2011

    " This book is a heart stopper and the suspense is breathtaking. It keeps you at the edge of your seat and having a woman villain so heartless was refreshing. Definitely a must read. Superb writing. "

    Not Bad! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kaye | 12/19/2010

    " The fabulous Clara Rinker's back, and she has vengeance on her mind! Lucas has to deal with the baffling FBI, but in the end of course, good old-fashioned police work is the way to crack this case. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 9/16/2010

    " Lucas Davenport always gets his guy, but this time it was one bad- assed gal. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Samantha | 9/15/2010

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ashley | 8/27/2010

    " This is officially my favorite Prey book! It's a very good thriller, I think all of the Davenport series are pretty good but this one is the best. I thoroghly enjoyed Clara's character as well as the detailed scenery of St. Louis (my hometown). You should read it... go on... go find it... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steve | 8/25/2010

    " Solid Sanford, I think I like Lucas Davenport better than Alex Cross.

    A page turner, finished in a couple of hours. I think somebody else wrote it in their review gotta be a good book with davenport and rinker "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jim | 8/24/2010

    " Lucas has a hard time being away from his soon to be wife with child and building a new house, and a long time friend ends up shot by the one he is chasing around the country... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alyn | 8/14/2010

    " another superb plot! happen to read this before the Lucas's first encounter with Clara Rinker, but don't think it would make a lot of difference, i would still love reading it "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Richard | 6/27/2010

    " This is the 13th book in the "Prey" series by Sandford who also writes under another name. The writing is crisp and the characters interesting. In typical thriller/cop fashion the villains seen omniscient and invincible at the beginning but Lucas Davenport cuts them down to size. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 J. | 6/18/2010

    " This was a very good read for me and I enjoyed it just like I enjoy most of the Lucas Davenport books.

    J. Robert Ewbank author "John Wesley, Natural Man, and the 'Isms'" "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Colleen | 6/12/2010

    " I'm working through the list of Prey books by John Sandford, another MN author. They are kind of rough including not only language but what happens. Still they are interesting. I especially like to listen to them as Richard Ferrone does a great job of narration. "
