John Sandford has created one of best characters in modern fiction in Lucas Davenport. His “Prey” novels are consistently not just good, but great. The name John Sandford is the pseudonym of the Pulitzer Prize winning journalist John Camp. It is hard not to get emotionally invested in the characters Sandford creates. The world of Lucas Davenport is never boring. Well dressed and willing to kick ass on a moment’s notice makes the action taunt, compelling and fast moving.
The surrounding cast –Weather, Del, Shrake on down, make you want to keep turning the pages. The addition of Letty in this book is a stroke of genius that will benefit readers for a long time.
To say that I enjoy Sandford’s brilliance is an understatement. I have read all his work and eagerly await each new book. He has a style that will grab you and not let go. Do yourself a favor. If you haven’t for whatever reason discovered John Sandfords work, start at the beginning. Enjoy the evolution of the world of Lucas Davenport. The thrill ride will be worth it, from the first Prey novel to the most recent. What are you reading today? Check us out on Facebook, Goodreads, Twitter, and Linkedin.
