Fan-favorite heroes Lucas Davenport and Virgil Flowers join forces on a deadly maritime case in the remarkable new novel from #1 New York Times-bestselling author John Sandford.

An off-duty Coast Guardsman is fishing with his family when he calls in some suspicious behavior from a nearby boat. It's a snazzy craft, slick and outfitted with extra horsepower, and is zipping along until it slows to pick up a surfaced diver . . . a diver who was apparently alone, without his own boat, in the middle of the ocean. None of it makes sense unless there's something hinky going on, and his hunch is proved right when all three Guardsmen who come out to investigate are shot and killed.

They're federal officers killed on the job, which means the case is the FBI's turf. When the FBI's investigation stalls out, they call in Lucas Davenport. And when his case turns lethal, Davenport will need to bring in every asset he can claim, including a detective with a fundamentally criminal mind: Virgil Flowers.

    Excellent easy read. Perfect for laying around the pool or curled up under a blanket.
  • Best Davenport in a while!

    By RayTrader
    Maybe it’s Virgil and Lucas and Rae together but the storyline, dialogue and characters clicked just right for me.

    Found the Prey book to be as exciting and fast paced as I’ve come to love. Enjoyed Lucas & Virgil talents being highlighted together and how they work off each other. Did not miss the reference to “F****** Flowers”. Flowers’ character has matured and he’s outgrown the need to be “put down “ by the other cops.
  • Great crossover

    By Laura__F
    I went into this book nervous about whether or not I would be disappointed like I was with the last one. Short answer, no. This book brings back the Lucas of old and I couldn’t be happier. There was an event in this book that shattered me for a few chapters and truly brought out the Lucas Davenport fans have known over the last 30-some books. Bringing Flowers into the craziness that is the Marshal’s service was everything I never knew I needed. This crossover has me excited about more Prey/Flowers books and more crossovers in the future!!
