Golden Prey Book Review

Lucas Davenport, is now working as a politically appointed federal marshal. He, being himself, never listens to anyone, does not care for superiors, and picks and chooses his own tasks.

This plot is very interesting where Lucas tries to outsmart a federal fugitive who is clever enough to remain in hiding for a very long time.

The Plot

A recent cartel money theft cases catches the fancy of Lucas Davenport and our anti-hero, Garvin Poole, and his girlfriend Pandora Box (funny names throughout the book ;)) are the unfortunate targets of Lucas’s determined hunt.

Lucas enjoys his hunting as usual and chases down Poole and his associates in a very thrilling way.

Cartel-appointed, highly remorseless killers add to the complexity of the chase and this becomes a cat and mouse game.

The entire plot revolves around technology and cell phones as pointed out by Lucas Davenport at the end of the chase.

The Verdict

I can not spoil the book for you, but I can say this: Golden Prey is definitely a hit in the Prey series. A keeper!

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book as much as I enjoyed reading the very first book in the Prey series, Rules of Prey and the 10th book, Certain Prey, which are the best books in the series according to me.

It was a very eager long wait for Golden Prey, but now I am even more eager for the next Prey book from John Sandford’s stash, if that is anything like this one!

Even if you are new to John Sandford’s Prey series, if you enjoy reading outstanding crime thrillers, Golden Prey is definitely for you. Pick this book and you will never regret it.

Buy it now on Amazon available as Golden Prey(A Prey Novel).
