Overview

The ninth in his Prey series, Secret Prey attests to Pulitzer Prize-winner John Sandford's extraordinary expertise at keeping his fans in suspense. Each successive installment in the harrowing adventures of Detective Lucas Davenport is a shock wave of excitement and terror. At first the shooting death of the company chairman seems like an unfortunate hunting accident-until Lucas investigates the other four executives in the hunting party. None of the four seems unduly upset about the CEO's death. In fact, investigation reveals that each could actually benefit from his demise. In a race against time, Lucas must ferret out a deadly secret that will inevitably lead to another murder, perhaps even his own. Even veteran John Sandford fans should steel themselves for a deliciously nerve-wracking and unpredictable listening experience. Richard Ferrone's rich narration provides the perfect medium for a work of stunning plot twists and unrelenting suspense.

  • Book Rating: 5/5

Who killed the Chairman of the Board turns into who killed his successor and so on. Suspicion passes from big boss to big boss to their wives and ex-wives. The last part of the book delves into the mind of the killer and it is where Sandford rises to the top. It's hard to forget Lucas Davenport's foes. But will Lucas get Winter back?
