Publisher Description

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 lost him his fiancee, 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

    - 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.”

    " 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. "

    " 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. "

    " 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.
