Product Description


Most of Sandford's Davenport thrillers have been bestsellers -- deservedly so, for these are taut and elegant tales -- Guardian

Product Description

Six months ago, Lucas Davenport tackled his first case as a statewide troubleshooter, and he thought that one was plenty strange enough. But that was before the Russian got killed. On the shore of Lake Superior, a man named Vladimir Oleshev is found shot dead, three holes in his head and heart, and though nobody knows why he was killed, everybody - the local cops, the FBI, and the Russians themselves - has a theory. And when it turns out he had very high government connections, that's when it hits the fan." A Russian cop flies in from Moscow, Davenport flies in from Minneapolis, law enforcement and press types swarm the crime scene - and, in the middle of it all, there is another murder. Is there a relationship between the two? What is the Russian cop hiding from Davenport? Is she - yes, it's a woman - a cop at all? Why was the man shot with ... fifty-year-old bullets? Before he can find the answers, Davenport will have to follow a trail back to another place, another time, and battle the shadows he discovers there - shadows that turn out to be both very real and very deadly.

4.0 out of 5 stars On form 11 April 2006
By SonicQuack VINE VOICE
If you've never read a Lucas Davenport crime novel, the good news is that you jump in anywhere you like. Each book is self-contained, with a relationships and politics spanning the series with little effect on the main stories. Hidden Prey is a great place to start.
It's a well driven plot, with twists and turns, great new characters and is compulsive reading. As ever, the body count rises and Lucas, our sarcastic and beloved hero, is clearly on form. If anyone throught the series was stale than this is a sign that Sandford knows how to reenergise an old formula and can inject life in to Lucas's aging bones yet. There are moments of great humour as well as suspense, a page turner until the end.

4.0 out of 5 stars An ice-cool pro 17 Jan. 2005
By Mr. Warren M. Fisher VINE VOICE
Another accomplished entry in Sandford's 'Prey' novels from an author who rarely disappoints, indeed the series featuring detective Lucas Davenport ranks among the finest in modern crime writing. Lean, economical and as ice-cool as a Minneapolis winter, this novel won't disappoint fans, and is a perfect introduction to Sandford and his hard-bitten cop hero.

4.0 out of 5 stars Is the Cold War Still Alive ? 4 Jun. 2007
This is the first John Sandford book that I have read. The story is about a dead Russian being found on the shore of Lake Superior, a female lawyer who is down and out living on the streets, a group of russian imigrants that left their homeland a number of years previous, A Russian police officer or is she KGB ? Add to that our hero Lucas Davenport and put them all in the pot and stir well. Result ? A cracking good story that will keep you involved right to the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars More than holiday reading .... 18 Sept. 2007
There is s fine line between a book that that twists and turns your mind in pain and one that challenges you so that you can ignore the rigours of budget air travel. This book captured me in the first few pages as the lead character Davenport starts the book laying on the sofa watching golf and scratching .... Its a man thing...

The book moves at a good pace, some great dialogue and wry asides keep the reader smiling and turning the pages. A book that reads quickly and one that you observe rather than immerse yourself in it. The end is clear from early in the book but the closure of the trail of events reveal some nice twists and turns.

More than a holiday book, great for long flights or laying in the sofa at the weekend...... scratching....
