Field Of Prey is rated 4.66666666666667 out of 5 by 21.
The extraordinary new Lucas Davenport thriller from #1 New York Times-bestselling author and Pulitzer Prize winner John Sandford.
 
The night after the fourth of July, Layton Carlson Jr., of Red Wing, Minnesota, finally got lucky. And unlucky.

He’d picked the perfect spot to lose his virginity to his girlfriend, an abandoned farmyard in the middle of cornfields: nice, private, and quiet. The only problem was . . . something smelled bad—like, really bad. He mentioned it to a county deputy he knew, and when the cop took a look, he found a body stuffed down a cistern. And then another, and another.

By the time Lucas Davenport was called in, the police were up to fifteen bodies and counting. And as if that wasn’t bad enough, when Lucas began to investigate, he made some disturbing discoveries of his own. The victims had been killed over a great many years, one every summer, regular as clockwork. How could this have happened without anybody noticing?

Because one thing was for sure: the killer had to live close by. He was probably even someone they saw every day. . . .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FIELD OF PREY A VERY spine tingling story, full of non ending suspense that keeps you riveted to your chair. I loved the ending as it didn't just end with getting the culprit. Instead the story came full circle with all of the stories characters. A MUST READ.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the Read Enjoyed this one as much as all the other Prey novels. Story was complex enough to keep me from seeing the end too early on and the pacing was excellent. An entertaining read.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Where's Sandford? There is definitely something 'off' with Field of Prey. It's hard to recognize Sandford's hand in this poorly written in this book. For that matter, it's hard to recognize Lucas Davenport! Alas, all good things must come to an end. Farewell Lucas! It was a fun ride!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Field Of Prey Fantastic Read! Sandford is the master writer of murder-mystery's. I love the humour and how he ties off all the loose ends so there are no unanswered bits to wonder about. This one is hard to put down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sandford at his best! I've been waiting for this book. Sandford is such a pleasure to read. Never fully sure of what will happen next , yet you find yourself telling Lucas he is missing the obvious clues! Great read as usual! One problem is it all ends to soon and now the long wait for the next in the series!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another winner. Lucas Davenport returns in Field of Prey and doesn’t disappoint. There are curves to be navigated throughout the adventure. These curves keep the pages turning at a rapid pace until the resolution allows you to release your pent up breath.

Read from the Book

1There comes a crystalline moment in the lives of most young male virgins when they realize that they are about to get laid, and they will clutch that moment to their hearts for the rest of their days.For some, maybe most, the realization comes nearly simultaneously with the moment. With others, not so much.For Layton Burns Jr., of Red Wing, Minnesota, a recent graduate of Red Wing High School (Go Wingers!), the moment arrived on the night of the Fourth of July. He and Ginger Childs were wrapped in a blanket and propped against a tree of some sort—neither was a botanist—in a park in Stillwater, Minnesota, looking down at the river, where the fireworks were going off.Fireworks were not going off in Red Wing, because the city council was too cheap to pay for them.In any case, Stillwater did have fireworks. Layton, a jock, had his muscular right arm wrapped around Ginger’s back, then under her arm and in past the unbuttoned second button on her blouse, where he was getting, in the approved parlance of the senior class at Red Wing High School, a bare tit. One of those hot, nipple-rolling bare tits. Not only a bare tit, but a semi-public one, which added to the frisson of the moment.While intensely pleasant, this was not entirely a new development. They’d taken petting to a fever pitch, but Layton was the tiniest bit shy about asking for the Big One.Ginger had her hand on Layton’s thigh, where, despite his shy- ness, his interest was evident, and then as the final airbursts explod

The extraordinary new Lucas Davenport thriller from #1 New York Times-bestselling author and Pulitzer Prize winner John Sandford.
 
The night after the fourth of July, Layton Carlson Jr., of Red Wing, Minnesota, finally got lucky. And unlucky.

He’d picked the perfect spot to lose his virginity to his girlfriend, an abandoned farmyard in the middle of cornfields: nice, private, and quiet.

By the time Lucas Davenport was called in, the police were up to fifteen bodies and counting. And as if that wasn’t bad enough, when Lucas began to investigate, he made some disturbing discoveries of his own. The victims had been killed over a great many years, one every summer, regular as clockwork. How could this have happened without anybody noticing?

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Field of Prey“One of [Sandford’s] best. His writing and the appeal of his lead character are as fresh as ever. This author is a master writer and he pulls out all the stops to tell the latest adventure . . . For those who think they know everything they need to know about Lucas Davenport, this book proves them wrong. It also shows that Sanford still has some tricks up his sleeve when it comes to writing totally engrossing books. Sanford has always been at the top of any list of great mystery writers and this latest book shows why…It is one of his best and that makes it something really special.”—Huffington Post“Consistently brilliant, Sandford shows the methodical steps inherent in such a case, without sacrificing plot, pacing or character.”—Cleveland Plain-Dealer“Sandford seems to top himself with each new installment; the latest is no exception to that rule . . . It doesn’t get any better than Field of Prey. . . This is a series you must be reading if you are not already.”—bookreporter.com“As always, Lucas and Sandford are superb . . . Another top-notch thriller destined for best-seller lists.”—Booklist (starred review)“Suspenseful . . . Sandford has tricks to play to confound readers before the tension rises and leads to a violent and surprising conclusion.”—Publishers Weekly “Intense.”—Kirkus ReviewsPraise for Silken Prey “Sandford’s Davenport novels are always very good, and this is the best one in a long time. It’s suspenseful, witty, and wise in the ways of
