A wealthy widow returns to her large home in an exclusive Minneapolis suburb to find blood everywhere, no body—and her student daughter missing. Instantly, she suspects the involvement of the weird goth crowd her daughter had been hanging around with. With no sign of the widow's daughter, dead or alive, a second goth is found slashed to death—but it’s only when a third dead goth turns up that Lucas Davenport gets involved. But the clues don't seem to add up. Then there's the young goth who keeps appearing and disappearing. Who is she? Where does she come from and, more importantly, where does she vanish to? And why does Davenport get the sneaking suspicion that there is something else going on here—something very, very bad indeed?

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Starr | 2/16/2014

    " John Sandford's Prey series is one of the best. They are books that you cannot put down but have to find out what will happen next. I can't wait until the next one comes out. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nette | 2/6/2014

    " Enjoyable, but when the identify of the murderer/s is/are (I'm trying not to spoil!) revealed halfway through, it was a surprisingly goofy choice for a Sandford book. He's usually more grounded in reality. There's a great subplot about surveilling a mobster's girlfriend which was far more interesting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dana | 2/2/2014

    " Not as good as his other prey books. Lots of swearing, kind of graphic. Not for the faint of heart. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shelie | 1/24/2014

    " I didn't like this one as well as the other "Prey" stories. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anita | 1/22/2014

    " Another is a fun line of Lucas Davenport mysteries. This time he goes into the goth world of Minneapolis. Always a good beach read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mellissa | 1/21/2014

    " The Lucas Davenport books are wonderful and always a good read. This one I thought particularly gripping and interesting because the characters are rich in texture and interesting. "

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

    " This was pretty good most of the time. I found that I had a hard time concentrating on it. My mind wandered a lot. But, all in all, a good read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sheree Ross | 1/1/2014

    " One of the more complicated Prey books,,,,,,but thats what makes them so good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kate Harding | 12/27/2013

    " I'm always in the mood for a good quick murder mystery read to rest my brain for a bit and my mother has been suggesting the Lucas Davenport series for quite some time. She happened to have this one lying around while I was at her house and I am glad I picked it up. Davenport is the perfect cop lead character. A good sexy family man who is sarcastic and cool. Kind of a convoluted story here, and the end was fairly easy to figure out, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Terry | 12/26/2013

    " Sooo gory! I don't like how graphic the murders are. But, the story is a good one, and I like the investigative part. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 12/21/2013

    " Another good Lucas Davenport book in the series. A young woman is killed and the story goes on with her mother. A little different from the others in the series but I enjoyed it. The continuing story with Lucas' family keeps you interested! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kitty Tomlinson | 12/16/2013

    " Lucas investigates the presumed death of a wealthy socialite Goth. Really good addition to series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ally | 10/24/2013

    " John Sandford is a fairly decent, quick read - but I didn't like this book as much as some of his others. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ed | 6/27/2013

    " Straightforward, no non-sense, entertaining read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan Mangigian | 5/21/2013

    " I love John Sanford's Lucas Davenport! Always predictable, but a great read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenness | 5/15/2013

    " Any John Sanford book with Lucas Davenport as the main character is great. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barbara | 12/20/2012

    " Read this three years ago. Still very good read even a second time around. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christen | 9/8/2012

    " Just what I'd expect from Sandford. Another good "Prey" book with all the same characters. I like reading books that have the same characters everytime - they feel like family. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sue z | 7/5/2012

    " Well, Sanford kept me guessing in this one. My favorite detective gets involved in the best cases. Whether he wants to or not. Always leaves me waiting for the Prey novel. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jessica | 6/14/2012

    " Not one of his best. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gina | 6/9/2012

    " A good brainer to really get you thinking like a detective. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pat | 5/25/2012

    " Sandford's favorite detective Lucas Davenport ventures into the counter cultures for clues to a young woman's death. This book has a different twist than earlier Davenport books but it is not disappointing. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Walter Straus | 5/23/2012

    " Sandford is a wonderful, engaging author. I have probably read 20 of his books. This is the least favorite of those that I have read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark Kricheff | 4/11/2012

    " A Lucas Davenport novel wherein this Minneapolis-based detective with the Minnesota Bureau for Criminal Apprehension investigates a series of Goth murders involving a friend of his wife. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tammy | 11/18/2011

    " Extraordinary John Sanford! I loved it and recommend it for all of you "Prey" lovers. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary Lea | 10/17/2011

    " Loved it! Love the dialogue is John Sandford's books. It's very realistic. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Walter | 5/7/2011

    " Sandford is a wonderful, engaging author. I have probably read 20 of his books. This is the least favorite of those that I have read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laurie | 4/13/2011

    " If you like John Sandford mysteries this is a good one and very different. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 adri | 3/30/2011

    " Acho os livros do Johnny Sandford ótimos pra passar o tempo. Neste, Lucas Davenport resolve 2 crimes/problemas ao mesmo tempo, o que torna o livro ainda mais legal. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gary | 3/28/2011

    " As part of the continuing Lucas Davenport Series, this was a fun, quick read. I would normally give Sandford's books 4 or 5 stars as I usually really like the plot and the characters, but I found the main villains in Phantom Prey to be somewhat unbelievable and unrealistic. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ida | 2/7/2011

    " Wavered between 2 and 3 stars, finally deciding on 2. Just didn't love the characters. For me, there was simply something missing. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Linda | 2/1/2011

    " This book was just ok, until the killer's identity was revealed. At that point, the entire story became ridiculous and I was sorry that I had wasted my time reading it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susan | 1/17/2011

    " Richard Ferrone, as always, does a great job of narrating. I'd give this between a 3.5-4.0. Nothing too complicated, but fun to listen to. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Richard | 11/4/2010

    " Love, love, love Sandford and the character of Lucas Davenport but generally, Sandford's first ten in the series are miles better than these later ones.

    Still, for a late season Davenport, this one's not half bad. And there's a short mention here of Kidd and LuEllen! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Florence | 10/28/2010

    " Another police mystery set in Minneapolis. Sandford is a Cedar Rapids native. His books are light interesting mysteries. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Olivia | 10/15/2010

    " I loved this book and thought it was really awesome. A good mystery that was worth creating arguments with myself in my head about the ending – who the bad guy is.

    A great read.
    "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Connie | 10/13/2010

    " I have read several of his "Prey" books. This is the first I thought was soo bad. "
