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.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2010-04-15)

In his 20th Prey novel (after Wicked Prey), Sandford continues to deviate from the pulse-pounding serial killer thrillers of the early 1990s that put Minneapolis cop Lucas Davenport on the map. Davenport still has his sharp mind, quick reflexes, and dirty mouth, but now marriage and fatherhood give him something to lose. And as head of Minnesota's Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, he's working with a larger cast of law enforcement agents and a wider variety of criminals.

The morning that his wife, surgeon Weather Karkinnen, is set to separate conjoined twins, she sees a man who just robbed the hospital pharmacy. Davenport calls Virgil Flowers to protect Weather and help him catch the robbers before they can identify her as the witness. The bikers behind the drug heist are portrayed as petty criminals, but the doctor and hit man they're working with are slowly revealed as out-and-out sociopaths.

Verdict: This fast-paced crime novel with bad guys so calmly amoral will have readers dead-bolting their doors for weeks.

Review by Library Journal (2010-09-01)

No. 1 New York Times best-selling writer Sandford's (www.johnsandford.org) 20th Lucas Davenport thriller follows Wicked Prey (2009), also available from Recorded Books/Penguin Audio. In it, Lucas's wife, surgeon Weather Karkinnen, finds her life on the line when she witnesses the fleeing perpetrators of a drug robbery gone wrong. Actor/Audie Award winner Richard Ferrone, who narrates earlier titles in this series, does an excellent job of reading this latest entry, making the various characters' multifaceted personalities easily discern able through his nuanced tones, accents, and voices. Thriller fans and anyone liking Sandford's other works are sure to enjoy.
