Lucas Davenport tracks a prolific serial killer in the new nail-biting #1 New York Times-bestseller from John Sandford.
Clayton Deese looks like a small-time criminal, muscle for hire when his loan shark boss needs to teach someone a lesson. Now, seven months after a job that went south and landed him in jail, Deese has skipped out on bail, and the U.S. Marshals come looking for him. They don't much care about a low-level guy--it's his boss they want--but Deese might be their best chance to bring down the whole operation.
Then, they step onto a dirt trail behind Deese's rural Louisiana cabin and find a jungle full of graves.
Now Lucas Davenport is on the trail of a serial killer who has been operating for years without notice. His quarry is ruthless, and--as Davenport will come to find--full of surprises . . .

Another awesome Prey book!!
After something like 40 books between the Prey and Flowers series, I'm always thinking that there's not going to be a unique storyline or that I'm going to be sucked into the book like I've been in the past. I was so wrong about that. This is my favorite Davenport book yet!
There's so much suspense. I was, at times, literally on the edge of my seat. In true Lucas fashion, there were plenty of times that I was laughing and I even shed a tear or two.
I'm already hype by the next book in this series. I can't wait to see what shenanigans this crew gets up to next.
This is my first review of a John Sanford book. I gave this 5 stars even though this was not my favorite of his books. I just felt there were too many mishaps. I love the characters of Lucas Davenport and Virgil Flowers. Can’t wait until a new one of these books come out. I just had a hard time getting into Neon Prey. Considering the way this one ended I’m looking forward to the next one.
Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Book!
Not sure how it’s earned 4 stars. I’ve read most of John Sandford’s books and they’ve all been decent to good and I always look forward to the next one. This one, however, has no redeeming qualities. Was it really written by Sandford or one of his children? This is not a book written by a seasoned, experienced, talented writer. The characters are supposed to be la-creme-de-la-creme in their fields, yet they were presented as bumbling fools with mistakes at every turn. It was so bad that I was having secondhand embarrassment for FICTIONAL characters. And at the risk of providing spoilers, some non-consensual sexual acts were just gratuitous, overly graphic and unnecessary to the plot. Possibly worst book I’ve read in a long time.
