In Naked Prey, John Sandford puts Lucas Davenport through some changes. His old boss, Rose Marie Roux, has moved up to the state level and taken Lucas with her, creating a special troubleshooter job for him for the cases that are too complicated or politically touchy for others to handle. In addition, Lucas is now married and a new father, both of which are fine with him: he doesn’t mind being a family man. But he is a little worried. For every bit of peace you get, you have to pay—and he’s waiting for the bill.

It comes in the form of two people found hanging from a tree in the woods of northern Minnesota. What makes it particularly sensitive is that the bodies are of a black man and a white woman, and they’re naked. “Lynching” is the word that everybody’s trying not to say—but, as Lucas begins to discover, the murders are not what they appear to be, and they are not the end of the story. There is worse to come—much, much worse.

Filled with the rich characterization and exceptional drama that are his hallmarks, this is Sandford’s most suspenseful novel yet.

Quotes & Awards

  • “All but impossible to put down.”

    Washington Post

  • “Stellar…Vintage Sandford.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “All the author’s usual trademarks are on display—excellent writing, an interesting scenario, and terrific pacing.”

    Amazon.com, editorial review

  • “This riveting thriller is prime Sandford—smart, funny, hard-boiled, and utterly satisfying.”

    RT Book Reviews

  • “Sandford’s best novel yet.”

    Library Journal

  • “Suspenseful and cleverly plotted, and the denouement is an exhilarating example of ultimate justice convincingly delivered. Sandford has another bestseller here, and it’s one of the better entries in a fine series.”


  • “By the time a series gets appreciably past its salad days, the signs of writer fatigue are usually unmistakable. Which is what makes this 14th outing from Sandford so remarkable: the brilliant Prey series goes bopping along, taking steps two at a time, acting like your basic spring chicken…Most notable of what Sandford continues to do—better, perhaps, than anyone in crime fiction—is humanize his monsters: that makes for a special kind of creepiness.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • A New York Times Bestseller

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Bruce Snell | 2/12/2014

    " This is the 14th in the Prey series by John Sandford. Lucas Davenport (and his chief Rose Marie, and his partner Del) is now working for the State Police. Lucas is assigned to find out who lynched two people in northern Minnesota. Although that part of the case is resolved on the first day, the added murders, the drug smuggling, and the auto theft make the case a lot more complicated. This book ruined my schedule for today in that I read straight thru to the end. Very good read. "

    " Enjoyed. Liked the spunky 12-year old Lettie, but saw where that was going at Davenport and Lettie's first hello. But that's okay... "
