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?

    " Fairly typical Davenport fare. A good read on a sunny vacation. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 James Mann | 2/16/2014

    " I've read nearly all of his Prey series, and this is one of the very best. A well-constructed plot that kept my interest and wonder to the very end. Very good and fast read that I really enjoyed. "

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

    " woman with multiple personalities....Loren and the fairy....quite good "

    " Highly recommend. Love the Lucas Davenport series! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sheree Ross | 2/4/2014

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

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark Kricheff | 1/30/2014

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather | 1/23/2014

    " Couldn't follow this one - convoluted plot. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Temple | 1/22/2014

    " This is the second time I've read this novel. It was just as good the second time around. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amanda | 1/20/2014

    " For a man that has written over 20 novels, I was sorely disappointed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cindy | 1/9/2014

    " Sandford always constructs a tight story, and this is another. Even after the 'mystery' is solved and you know who-dun-it, Sandford manages to add a couple unexpected twists. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christina | 11/25/2013

    " Really enjoyed the character of Lucas Davenport. Good pacing. Was a little disappointed in the ending. I'll definitely read another of the Davenport mysteries. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cammie | 10/29/2013

    " I've read every book John Sandford has written. I buy them in hard cover because once I know he has a new one out I cannot wait for the paperback. Davenport, Flowers and Kidd are some of the most memorable antagonists you'll ever meet. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Andrea | 10/13/2013

    " Tried this author for the fist time . . . not a fan. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathryn | 9/24/2013

    " Just finished another one of Sandford's book. This one was not as entertaining to me as his previous ones and the ending was a bit of a let down in my opinion. Still I would recommed it :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Terry | 8/29/2013

    " 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 Ken Jones | 8/10/2013

    " Another great Sandford (Daverport) book. Strange story, but the characters more than make up for the story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debbie Davis | 7/26/2013

    " Good read, but a little slow. A look into the Goth world with a murder mystery twist. Interesting. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ida | 5/27/2013

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

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Margaret | 5/1/2013

    " I occasionally turn to John Sandford for a good mystery, interesting new characters & a reconnection with Lucas Davenport whom I just like, for some reason. Didn't see the interesting twist coming, which is always a good thing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jayne | 2/3/2013

    " Alittle predictable but I enjoyed the story and the villain was really good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marion | 1/10/2013

    " i confess that i skipped a few pages at the end of this one. still, it was excellent. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark | 9/26/2012

    " Lucas does it again. Minnesota is safe from another serial murderer "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 April | 9/3/2012

    " Can I just say, I knew who the killer was from the beginning? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karl Mueller | 8/23/2012

    " A little twisted but entertaining. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Erin | 8/15/2012

    " Put it this way, I read it less than a year ago and I can't remember what it is about. Never a good sign. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christie | 5/20/2012

    " different than my normal books but I liked it "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan Manrodt | 11/21/2011

    " A real page turner, couldn't put it down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fara | 8/26/2011

    " The most recent Prey book is wonderful but also a little different for Sandford, in that the person Lucas is looking for is pretty sympathetic and a little, well, goofy . . . "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Judi | 8/9/2011

    " Great series, written from the view point of the bad ass detective, Lucas Davenport... Kinda rough reading (lots of F#8@* Bombs) but I enjoy this series, keeps you guessing all the way through. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 James | 7/31/2011

    " Lucas Davenport ROCKS! I really enjoy the Prey series and Lucas is one of my favorite characters "

  • 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. "
