“Sandford’s track record as a bestselling author is amazing, but it’s not an accident,” wrote Booklist of Wicked Prey. “His plotting is sharp, his villains are extraordinarily layered, and his good guys are always evolving.”

And this time, there’s a storm brewing…

Very early, 4:45 on a bitterly cold Minnesota morning, three big men burst through the door of a hospital pharmacy, duct-tape the hands, feet, mouth and eyes of two pharmacy workers, and clean the place out. But then things swiftly go south: one of the workers dies, and the robbers hustle out to their truck—and find themselves, for just one second, face-to-face with a blonde woman who’s driven into the garage.

That woman is Weather Karkinnen, surgeon and wife of an investigator named Lucas Davenport.

Did she see enough? Can she identify them? Gnawing it over later, it seems to them there is only one thing they can do: find out who she is and eliminate the only possible witness.

Filled with his brilliant trademark suspense and some of the best characters in suspense fiction, Storm Prey—the twentieth novel in the Prey series—is further proof that “John Sandford is at the top of his game” (Washington Post).

Quotes & Awards

  • “A good thriller requires a good villain, and the latest Prey has one that would make a lovely mate for Strip’s Carrie: Caprice Marlon Garner, a motorcycle-riding killer. Sandford writes great, unapologetic guy fiction…but you guy-ettes will have a good time too.”

    Stephen King, Entertainment Weekly

  • “A beautiful thing to behold. The sturdy scaffolding, designed to support two interconnecting story lines, allows readers to follow both the misadventures of an incompetent gang of thieves…and a complicated medical procedure to separate conjoined twins…But the pretty construction job isn’t all bricks and mortar. Sandford invests the villains with enough psychotic quirks to keep the action fast, jumpy, and violent. And while none of the white hats can match the perverse appeal of a twenty-year-old killer biker whose crazy father named him after a 1982 Chevy Caprice, that delicate operation is every bit as intense as all the other daredevil stunts in this manhunt.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • “Scenes are short and punchy, keeping the narrative moving at full gallop.”

    Washington Post

  • “Superb…Sharply drawn characters, intricate plotting, and smooth dialogue make this a sure-fire winner.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “It can’t get more exciting than this.”

    Barnes & Noble, editorial review

  • “Includes most of the elements readers expect: sharp plot, snappy dialogue, and believable action…This is another fine entry in a wildly popular series.”

    Booklist

  • “This fast-paced crime novel with bad guys so calmly amoral will have readers dead-bolting their doors for weeks.”

    Library Journal

  • “Lucas Davenport’s twentieth case is one of his best…Razor-sharp dialogue, a tautly controlled pace, and enough homicides for a miniseries. What more could fans want?”

    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 Will | 2/9/2014

    " A good solid Prey book. As an easy-to-read murder mystery... these books can't be beat. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Celilo | 2/7/2014

    " Sanford throws in just about every character, many from different books (flowers, etc.) and the body count is surprisingly high for a 'simple' hospital pharmacy robbery gone wrong (one pharmacists inadvertently dies from blows inflicted) ----- but still very good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angela Mcvay | 2/6/2014

    " Excellent Prey novel! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anita | 2/1/2014

    " Not the best of the Davenport series, but a decent summer read. Sometimes a Twinkie just tastes good. "

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

    " Ok, I love Lucas Davenport novels. They are consistently interesting, page-turner type books, and as a break from the serious stuff, they are a lot of fun. Someone requested this on PBSwap and so I just gobbled it down so I could send it out. Now back to the serious stuff. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura Hester | 1/15/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matthuvius Manhandlinglambs | 12/28/2013

    " A gang of thieves rob a hospital. Weather Karkinnon is a witness, so they target her to shut her up. Fun asskickery, as usual. But these titles don't even try to make sense. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Teryl | 12/26/2013

    " I enjoyed it, but it wasn't as strong as some of the previous ones. He kept using the "hard" man/men as a description, and I found it a bit annoying. Still, I like the characters and it was an easy, holiday read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marvin King | 12/22/2013

    " My first Prey book. Simple plot. Easy dialogue. Engaging plot, but not sure I sure read more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathleen | 7/24/2013

    " The twentieth is as good as the first. This series sagged a bit in the middle, in my opinion. But I'm glad I've stuck with it. This is a really solid outing for Davenport and that f***ing Flowers. It's a page-turner. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brenda | 7/13/2013

    " It was the first I had read in the series of Lucas Davenport. I had many questions since I had not read the other books. I have now gone back and found the second book Shadow Prey which gives me more insight into Lucas Prey the man. I am now looking for others in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jerome Statema | 4/30/2013

    " I've always enjoyed the Lucas Davenport books, and this one was no exception. Quickly-paced and engaging. Added bonus that the author lives, as do his characters, in Minnesota. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Megowen | 4/7/2013
