Lucas Davenport has seen many terrible murder scenes. This is one of the worst. In the Minnesota town of Wayzata, an entire family has been killed—husband, wife, two kids, dogs. On the wall, in blood: “Were coming.” No apostrophe.

There’s something about the scene that tugs at Lucas’ cop instincts … it looks an awful lot like the kind of scorched-earth retribution he’s seen from Mexican drug gangs. But this is a seriously upscale town; the husband ran a modest software company, the wife dabbled in local politics. None of it seems to fit—until it does. That’s when everybody starts coming to town: the DEA, the Mexican Federales, and some independent operators who are decidedly less welcome.

The evidence trail will take Lucas into the darkest nightmare of his life.

Filled with John Sandford’s trademark, razor-sharp plotting and some of the best characters in suspense fiction, Stolen Prey is further evidence for why the Cleveland Plain Dealer called the Davenport novels “a perfect series.”

Quotes & Awards

  • “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.”

    " 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 by 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!! "

    " 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. "

    " 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. "
