Lucas Davenport has seen many terrible murder scenes. This is one of the worst. In the small Minnesota town of Wayzata, an entire family has been killed—husband, wife, two daughters, dogs.

There’s something about the scene that pokes at Lucas’s cop instincts—it looks an awful lot like the kind of scorched-earth retribution he’s seen in drug killings sometimes. But this is a seriously upscale town, and the husband was an executive vice president at a big bank. It just doesn’t seem to fit.

Until it does. And where it leads Lucas will take him into the darkest nightmare of his life. Download and start listening now!

Quotes & Awards

  • If you haven’t read Sandford, you have been missing one of the great summer-read novelists of all time.  Lucas Davenport, the policeman hero of the Prey novels, is a hard dude . . . but not without a sense of humor, and that makes him special.  Sandford writes real-guy novels, but—judging by my wife and her sisters—real girls like him too.

    Stephen King

  • Sandford’s ability to sustain this perfect series [. . .] must be a cause of envy to other writers, but grateful readers greet the annual appearance of Minnesota cop Lucas Davenport with joy, then plan for a sleepless, page-turning night.

    Cleveland Plain-Dealer

  • Sandford’s talent is such that this series never grows stale, or boring, or forgettable.  As author and hero age, readers can hope that the best is yet to be.

    Richmond Times-Dispatch

  • “Sandford’s ability to sustain this perfect series…must be a cause of envy to other writers, but grateful readers greet the annual appearance of Minnesota cop Lucas Davenport with joy, then plan for a sleepless, page-turning night.”

    Cleveland Plain-Dealer

  • “Sandford’s talent is such that this series never grows stale, or boring, or forgettable.  As author and hero age, readers can hope that the best is yet to be.”

    Richmond Times-Dispatch

  • “Solid…Once again, Sandford smoothly blends action and suspense with a soupçon of humor.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “The climactic gunfight is deeply satisfying, and the very last line of dialogue is perfect.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Sandford, as demonstrated by his latest novel, is an author for all seasons…Sandford continues to get better and better, topping himself with each successive work. I used to think that it was inevitable that he would ride his streak out at some point, but now I have my doubts. If you have never encountered Sandford or Davenport before, Stolen Prey will make you a believer—and a reader.”

Listener Opinions

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

    " I've long been a fan of Sandford's books, and this one shows he is as good as ever. The story moves right along, the villains are nasty, the good guys victorious, and several exiting scenes, particularly toward the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debbie | 1/21/2014

    " Can't ever say anything negative about a J. Sanford book, esp. any of the 'Prey' series. This newest one was good but somehow just seemed a bit too confusing with too many things going on at once. Still a good story but seems like these newer Prey stories don't have that bit of fear installed that has your heart racing and if reading home alone, a bit scared to look out your window, if indeed you live in this area!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Holly Boyd | 1/16/2014

    " The Lucas Davenport series is one of my all time favorites series. This book was a not the best, I had a little trouble actually staying focused and getting through the book, the story seemed to drag a bit. The ending made up for it, the connection btw Lucas and his adopted daughter was very moving. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lynn | 1/12/2014

    " As usual, another fast paced story with Lucas Davenport as the main character. Virgil Flowers has a small subplot that helps tie it all together. His novels are set in Minnesota, so I recognize some of the towns, landmarks and highways he uses. This is my favorite type of thriller/suspense novel. John Sanford has never been a disappointment, and I have quite a few left to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bill | 1/5/2014

    " This one was very good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jesse | 10/10/2013

    " Another great Lucas Davenport novel. Not extraordinary, but it scratched the Davenport itch. It's amazing that Sandford hasn't run out of gas on this series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim | 9/29/2013

    " I really enjoy all of John Sanford's books. I am excited to see a new Sanford novel hit the shelf and try to wait as long as I can to get because I read them so quickly. They are gripping and the type of book in which you can see the movie playing in your head as you read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pat Lampe | 9/27/2013

    " John Sandford does not disappoint. I can't believe this is the 22nd Lucas Davenport novel - wow. There are 2 sets of bad guys, an extremely brutal initial murder scene, and lots of twists and turns. I enjoyed every moment of it and stayed up too late a couple of nights reading. Can't wait for #23. "
