The company chairman lay on the cold ground of the woods, his eyes unseeing, his orange hunting jacket punctured by a rifle bullet at close range. Around him stood the four executives with whom he had been hunting, each with his or her own complicated agenda, each with a reason not to be sorrowful about the man’s death. If he read it in a book, Lucas Davenport thought, it would seem like one of those classic murder mysteries, the kind where the detective gathers everyone together at the end and solves the case with a little speech.

But it wasn’t going to be that easy, he knew. There were currents running through this group, hints and whispers of something much greater than the murder of a single man. He had felt this way not long before, sensed the curling of an indefinable evil, and not only had it nearly gotten him killed, it had cost him his fiancée, who’d never been able to recover from the violence of the encounter. Sometime soon, unless he could stop it, there would be another death, and then still another, and Davenport couldn’t help but wonder if maybe this time, the final death might not be his own.

John Sandford has written extraordinary thrillers before, but nothing to top the startling twists and unrelenting suspense of Secret Prey.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Excellent…Compelling…Everything works.”

    USA Today

  • “Don’t start if you don’t plan to finish it in one sitting.”

    Richmond Times-Dispatch

  • “This is the best installment in years—full of smart suspense and deduction as well as explosive action…Sandford’s suspense-making skills really kick in, keeping us fascinated.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Sandford has sustained his Prey thrillers by varying the premise with imaginative plotting; shifting points of view; a subtle, melancholy protagonist; and most of all, great villains. The ninth prey novel may well be the best, and that’s high praise in the context of such a consistently entertaining body of work.”

    Booklist

  • “The cop ripostes herein are a brilliantly welcome routine and rival the richly characterized acid blackness of TV’s Homicide show…Events from earlier Prey novels weave intriguingly through this one, inviting the reader to plunge into the entire series. Not a bad idea.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • A New York Times Bestseller
  • A USA Today Bestseller

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 2/12/2014

    " Sandford's "Prey" series of novels just seems to get better and better. I really enjoy a great who-done-it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 amy | 2/1/2014

    " I have all the Prey books...what can I say...I love his books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ramon Dearmas | 2/1/2014

    " I have read one of the other prey books and it was better! I forgot the name of that one but I think it was mortal prey, anyways I must admit I am not a Sanford fan but he is a good writer no doubt. This one didn't have it for me and was a slow read, I have a rule about finishing most books if the author is well known. I went back to Mike Connoly after this read. This book is for the corporate greed genre crowd but didn't please me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Albert | 1/18/2014

    " I liked it, the Lucas Davenport are similiar but I liked the story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 B | 1/6/2014

    " Good book from the series. Not much else I can add for a description. Suspense thrills part mystery. It's a vacation book "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nanosynergy | 12/15/2013

    " Once again I wonder if some series should not be read straight through. A little time and the reading other books to clear the pallet may be needed to continue to enjoy the series. The series, in general, is not bad. But read too close together, they've become predictable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary Jo | 12/5/2013

    " Another great Sandford book!Plot just gets better as the pages roll. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeff | 11/26/2013

    " Would give it 31/2 stars because the first half of the book was a bit plodding (business/banking issues bored me), but it picked up pace in the second half. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Colin Kemmis | 10/12/2013

    " The 1st half was not up to par - missing insights into the killers brain. But the 2nd half picked up like a normal, amazing Prey book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle | 10/12/2013

    " If only I wouldn't have read these books backwards. It is an excellent book, keeps you on the edge of "who did it" "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Larry Tubbs | 9/20/2013

    " This one is one of my favorites of the series, and it has the best ending by far! Great read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael | 9/13/2013

    " Pretty good thriller. The characters have their own voices and the plot is at least halfway believable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vfields needs to be happy! | 8/5/2013

    " This book took me to a hunting lodge and had a feel of an Agatha Christie novel. A rich businessman is killed and Davenport picks his way through the executives that wanted him dead. Lucas is depressed because Weather is gone and the team is still healing from the damage done to them in Sudden Prey. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jaime | 7/6/2013

    " This one was much like the last, and filled in a lot of blanks in the larger story for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cathy | 5/3/2013

    " Another road trip another Sanford book. If you have a problem with language then stay clear of his books. Big bursts of profanity just make me laugh, quickly forgotten. Sanford can really spin a yarn. Well written. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matthuvius Manhandlinglambs | 3/15/2013

    " CEO killed at a hunting lodge. Suspenseful and witty. Not at the very top with RULES or MORTAL, but still very good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Margie Church | 1/30/2013

    " My favorite in the prey series. "

    " More of the same, but good anyway. "
