Biography of Sandford, John

John Sandford was born John Roswell Camp on February 23, 1944 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Before entering the U.S. Army and serving in Korea, he received a bachelor's degree in American history from the University of Iowa in 1966. After leaving the service, he received a master's degree in journalism from the University of Iowa. During the 1970's, he worked at The Miami Herald, and the St. Paul Pioneer Press. In 1985, he began researching the lives of a farm family caught in the midst of the crisis of American farming.

The article, Life on the Land: An American Farm Family, won the Pulitzer Prize for Feature Writing and the American Society of Newspaper Editors Award for Non-Deadline Feature Writing. After winning the Pulitzer Prize, he began writing fiction. His works include the Prey series and the Virgil Flowers series. He has also written nonfiction works on plastic surgery and art.


Review by Library Journal (2008-09-01)

In New York Times best-selling author Sandford's (Invisible Prey) 18th Davenport novel, about a wealthy widow who comes home to find her college-age daughter missing, listeners learn more about Davenport's personal life with his wife and two children. Actor/narrator Richard Ferrone's (The Betrayed) crisp reading helps create a no-nonsense-type atmosphere that supports the questioning and searching typical to all suspense thrillers. Recommended.

Book description

A widow comes home to her large house in a wealthy, exclusive suburb to find blood everywhere, no body, and her college-aged daughter missing. She? s always known that her daughter ran with a bad bunch. What did she call them? Goths? The police can't find the girl, alive or dead, and when a second Goth is found slashed to death in Minneapolis, the widow truly panics. There's someone she knows, a surgeon named Weather Davenport, whose husband is a big deal with the police, and she implores Weather to get him directly involved.

Lucas begins to investigate only reluctantly? but then when a third Goth is slashed in what is now looking like a "Jack the Ripper" series of killings, he starts working it hard. The clues don't seem to add up, though. And then there's the young Goth who keeps appearing and disappearing: Who is she? Where does she come from and, more important, where does she vanish to? And why does Lucas keep getting the sneaking suspicion that there is something else going on here... something very, very bad indeed?
