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!

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 William | 2/14/2014

    " Typical Sanford/Davenport great read, lots of twists and as the investigation goes along you try to figure out what will happen next. Sanford has yet to disappoint me as I have never read one of his novels that didn't draw me into the story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Herzog | 2/9/2014

    " Clara Rinker is back. I usually don't enjoy when an author uses repeat bad guys, but this worked pretty well. Sandford has painted Rinker as shrewd and ruthless. Davenport plays his usual character - an effective outsider. Suspenseful with very good dialogue. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ginny | 1/27/2014

    " 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. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Monica | 1/27/2014

    " No. Just... not for me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julie | 1/21/2014

    " Mortal Prey by John Sandford (2003) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ricardo | 1/17/2014

    " Pretty good. Entertaining, good ending even if a bit underwhelming considering all the build up. Great supporting group of characters "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bob | 1/7/2014

    " Rinker returns! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marion | 1/7/2014

    " It's an exciting book with a satisfying finish. For some strange reason the ending made me sad. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Johnny Williams | 12/24/2013

    " GREAT READ-- Davenport series -- was one of the best if not the best I have read so far from the series-- Its ageless and if you haven't read it--go get it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tom Wiseman | 12/22/2013

    " Good premise, believable dialogue and characters. Not a best seller in my opinion, but certainly a good read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kara | 12/15/2013

    " It really is no good when you like the hit woman more than the protagonist of the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katie Thorson | 12/13/2013

    " I really liked Clara Rinker. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alyn | 10/29/2013

    " 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 "

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

    " Great book. It was an excellent follow up to the previous book. The ending was a surprise. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dave | 8/5/2013

    " This was another Lucas Davenport novel. This one wasn't on par with most of his other Prey books, but it was still a very interesting read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Glynda Roy | 7/17/2013

    " Excellent. I am so hooked. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Glenn Harris | 10/4/2012

    " Lucas Davenport's most deadly adversary returns. Another excellent entry in the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matthuvius Manhandlinglambs | 8/30/2012

    " Clara Rinker, the redneck lady assassin, is one of my favorite book characters ever. I wish Sandford had written an entire series about her. This and CERTAIN PREY, the first Rinker novel, are my two favorite Prey books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melody | 7/2/2012

    " This was the first time reading this author and it will not be the last. The story was geat and the author slipped surprises which were key to the plot though you sometimes weren't aware until the pieces fell together and what an ending! Recommend! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deb | 4/26/2012

    " Great book! I've read it several times before....can't get enough of the "Prey" novels and Lucas Davenport...EVER!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cynthia | 2/8/2012

    " Dragged a bit but still suspenseful. Completion of a story started in an earlier Prey book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nancy | 1/29/2012

    " Nancy 5 stars; Ron 5 stars "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paul Close | 1/28/2012

    " Good action and a quick pace. Clara is a thinker, so each assassination is clever and hard to stop, leading an interesting subtext. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dede | 11/12/2011

    " More fun and games with Clara Rinker. I'd love a whole series just about her. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rick | 9/12/2011

    " 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 | 5/27/2011

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melanie | 4/15/2011

    " Didn't love Clara the first time, so this was fine for me, but not one of my favorite in the Prey series. I enjoy seeing Lucas with Weather, and since he was on call in St. Louis for the vast majority of the book, that didn't happen. Oh well - time for the next one! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ramon | 4/12/2011

    " Good book as I am always on the hunt for a good mystery and murder! First of the prey series for me and was told I should have read other's first!

    Not Bad! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laurie | 2/13/2011

    " One of my favorite authors. I really enjoy the Lucas Davenport series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tom | 2/11/2011

    " Good premise, believable dialogue and characters. Not a best seller in my opinion, but certainly a good read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michael | 2/4/2011

    " Clara Rinker has to be one of the best female antagonists in mystery. Sad she is killed in the end. Great read and a great stand alone. "

  • 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

    " One of the best Davenport novels yet. I love Rinker and she did not disappoint in her return. I wish it could have ended differently but I thought it fit. "

  • 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. "
