The brilliant new Lucas Davenport thriller from the #1 New York Times best-selling author.

"Sandford's track record as a best-selling author is amazing, but it's not an accident," wrote Booklist of Wicked Prey . "His plotting is sharp, his villains are extraordinarily layered, and his good guys are always evolving.

And this time, there's a storm brewing...Very early, 4:45, on a bitterly cold Minnesota morning, three big men burst through the door of a hospital pharmacy, duct-tape the hands, feet, mouth, and eyes of two pharmacy workers, and clean the place out. But then things swiftly go bad, one of the workers dies, and the robbers hustle out to their truck-and find themselves for just one second face-to-face with a blond woman in the garage: Weather Karkinnen, surgeon, wife of an investigator named Lucas Davenport.

Did she see enough? Can she identify them? Gnawing it over later, it seems to them there is only one thing they can do: Find out who she is, and eliminate the only possible witness...

I think I am finally burned out on Sanford, too much gore and his cops are now incompetents who let the bad guys escape and continue their mayhem. I know it is just fiction but try to make it believable, you won a Pulitzer for crying out loud!

Storm Prey is a poorly written book in my opinion. The plot is weak and the characters have unrealized potential. The excessive use of profanity and unnecessary violence makes the book barely tolerable. It seems unfair to dismiss an author based on one poorly written novel, but I don't think I could stomach another book like this.

Storm Prey is a Lucas Davenport thriller. I enjoyed this book, I read it in 1 1/2 days. There's lots going on- a drug robbery in a hospital, multiple murders, multiple murderers, kidnapping, and on a good note, and an operation on conjoined twins. Lots of twists and turns in this novel.

John Sandford has continued his series with an excellent followup. It's amazing how he has wriiten about 19 Lucas Daveport books and apart from Shadow Prey they've all been absolutely wondeful!
It's going to be a sad day when the last Davenport book comes out...
