Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.

Lucas Davenport has seen many terrible murder scenes. This is one of the worst. In the small Minnesota town of Wayzata, an entire family has been killed--husband, wife, two daughters, dogs.
There's something about the scene that pokes at Lucas's cop instincts--it looks an awful lot like the kind of scorched-earth retribution he's seen in drug killings sometimes. But this is a seriously upscale town, and the husband was an executive vice president at a big bank. It just doesn't seem to fit.
Until it does. And where it leads Lucas will take him into the darkest nightmare of his life.

About the author

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 (2012-09-15)

In the 22nd entry in Sandford's "Prey" series, Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension agent Lucas Davenport investigates the brutal murder of a wealthy family. He discovers that their computer software firm also serves as a front for laundering Mexican drug money. When a group of petty thieves and computer hackers steal this cash, the gang sends vicious thugs to extract revenge and recover their ill-gotten gains. Along the way, Lucas also searches for a pair of thieves who robbed him at an ATM. Sandford's story contains a wide cast of law enforcement officers, crooks, and other colorful characters and has plenty of twists, turns, and shoot-outs to hold the listener's interest.

Verdict: Veteran narrator Richard Ferrone does an excellent job in presenting the tale. A perfect listen for people partial to action stories and hard-boiled cops and robbers.

Book description

Lucas Davenport has seen many terrible murder scenes. This is one of the worst. In the small Minnesota town of Wayzata, an entire family has been killed--husband, wife, two daughters, dogs.

There's something about the scene that pokes at Lucas's cop instincts--it looks an awful lot like the kind of scorched-earth retribution he's seen in drug killings sometimes. But this is a seriously upscale town, and the husband was an executive vice president at a big bank. It just doesn't seem to fit.

Until it does. And where it leads Lucas will take him into the darkest nightmare of his life.

Customer Product Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5★ by 2reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Fast paced I received this book not too long ago, and it is a bit early to review it, as I am only half way through. SO FAR the book is fast paced and exciting. It is very well written with the right amount of details to keep you interested. Stolen Prey is a little more "gory" than any of the other John Sandford books (I have read them all); it involves torture. But I love Lucas Davenport and his quick wit. This is a book that is hard to put down and I hope JS gets another book out ASAP! 06/12/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Sanford does it again! My husband and I are huge Sandford fans. He's got another great hit on his hands with Stolen Prey. We had pretty much said we were not going to purchase any more books since we bought our Kindle Fire's...but, since we have nearly the entire series in book form, we figured we would continue to collect the series in the same manner. If you have enjoyed the other books in the series, you will be thrilled with Stolen Prey! 08/19/2012
