Format: Mass Market Paperback
My third book by John Sandford this year. I thought having read The Fool's Run and the Empress file that the characters of LuEllen and Kidd would be difficult to surpass but other Amazon readers highly rated Lucas Davenport so I thought I would try Winter Prey. Brilliant , Engrossing , Well written , Superb. I review all of the books I read and do not often give out 5 stars. This is my third Sandford book and the third time I have awarded 5 stars. read this book and you will not be dissapointed

Format: Mass Market Paperback
John Sandford's first 4 novels were certainly varied and assured enough to distinguish themselves as worthy entries in their genre. Yet, as interesting as the villians in those pieces were, the plots didn't have a lot of momentum to them, mostly because Sandford gave the reader too much information ahead of his lead character, Lucas Davenport. So, instead of keeping us on the edge of our seats, we basically waited for Davenport to discover what we already knew, diluting the immediacy and urgency of the plot.
Luckily, with WINTER PREY, Sandford has changed his structure to the better, creating a nerve-frying tale of terror that ranks with the finest of the decade. The eerie snowbound locations lend plenty of isolated, creepy texture to the plot, while Sandford brilliantly elicits a disturbing, menacing atmosphere that puts us right into the story, giving us ingenious clues and surprise plot revelations to keep us glued to the pages all night long. Lucas Davenport emerges as a fully realized individual, while the supporting characters are first-rate, as are the action scenes and forensic details. A masterpiece.

I have read at least 5 of the prey series (not in the right order whoops) but this is my favourite so far. A good whodunit and plot that kept me interested all the way. A great thriller.

By DiBosco VINE VOICE on 11 Aug. 2001
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Why is Sandford's Davenport such an enthralling read? It's all summed up in this excellent book based in the depths of a Minnesota winter of violent crime, freezing, freezing weather and Lucas' latest woman.
Davenport, almost an anti-hero, almost unflappable, flapping as he has to fly into a storm meets Weather. Not weather, Weather. Well, he does meet weather too, and the bleak, white, frozen expanses are graphically described and live in your head.
As an Englishman I found this book quite interesting finding out about the Scandanavian influences in Minessota. It's also interesting finding just how cold the winters are in the Northern States. I'll never moan about an English winter again! (He lied...)
Don't start here if you haven't dipped your literary toes in the Prey waters, start with Rules of Prey. You'll soon end up here...

This is one of the first John Sandford books I ever read. Gripping from start to finish. I now read all the Sandford books. Lucas Davenport is an inspired character and evolves throughout the whole series. If you like good, gritty detective novels these are for you. Can be read out of order but like the Jack Reacher character if you want the history and appreciate how the character evolves they're best read in order. Die Trying: (Jack Reacher 2)

John Sandford is one of my favourite authors and this chillingly violent murderous tale does not disappoint. His characters are well rounded and believable and the writing taut and the dialogue and humour between the police officers is spot on.

Consistently avoids the routine or expected, with intelligence and surprising new wrinkles. Grabs you by the throat and never lets go.

This thriller is as tight and spell-binding as Sandford's others in the Prey series. I read the books out of order and really enjoyed finding out how Davenport and Weather came together.
