Overview

Mortal Prey is the latest thrilling page-turner in John Sandford's highly acclaimed Prey series. Years ago, Lucas Davenport almost died at the hands of Clara Rinker, a pleasant, soft-spoken, low-key Southerner, and the best hitwoman in the business. Now retired and living in Mexico, she nearly dies herself when a sniper kills her boyfriend, the son of a local druglord, and while the boy's father vows vengeance, Rinker knows something he doesn't ... the boy wasn't the target--she was--and now she's going to have to disappear to find the killer herself.

  • Book Rating: 5/5

****SPOILERS BELOW**** Of the Prey series books, this is one of them that rises to the top. When I stopped reading this series I remembered the book where Winter is really pregnant, they are planning to get married and Rinker is trying to kill someone there. Of course, that is the end of the book and the rest is much more exciting. I always liked the books with Rinker.
