Book Recommendation: Easy Prey by John Sandford


Easy Prey (2000) is novel #11 of 25 books in the Prey Series, featuring Lucas Davenport, by New York Times bestselling author John Sandford. I have read 18 of the 25 books in this series and all of the novels in his other series. This is one that I had missed in previous years. If you enjoy fast reading crime novels, you will want to read this series. Use the links to learn more about this author and his outstanding books.

He didn't wake up thinking about murder. He woke up thinking about the blonde on his bed and a stack of pancakes.... Funny how things work out....

When Davenport is called to the white-stuccoed house, after the party, he knows it's for no usual case. For one thing, the strangulation victim is Alie'e Maison, she of the knife-edge cheekbones and jade-green eyes: as models go, one of the biggest. For another, there are a few small complications. Such as the drugs in her body and the evidence that she had recently made love to a woman. Such as the fact that one of Lucas's own men had been at the party, and is now a suspect. Such as the little surprise they are all about to find when they search the house: a second body, stuffed in a closet, with a deep dent in its skull.

The whole case is going to be like this, Lucas knows — secrets piled upon secrets, the ground shifting constantly under his feet. But even he cannot suspect the earth tremors he is about to feel, when an old lover comes back into his life, a woman he has never been able to forget... whose own secrets may turn out to be the most perplexing ones of all.

Hi Roy: I am beginning to think that you are a bibliophile. I wonder how many books you finish in a month.

Thanks for the recommendation.

I just finished the newest Inspector Gamache book by Louise Penny.  It was quite intense.  Would love to hear your impression if you have read it, or when you do read it.  A

Thanks for the recommendation, and happy September to you.  A

BTW I found it interesting that John Camp (John Sandford) moved to New Mexico. Do you think he will start a series about the Navajo police?

I will check Easy Prey out Roy, thanks

 Great review, I do like him, I just started the Heist by Daniel Silva and am quite excited about reading it! Thanks for sharing your book reviews!

Your comments are much appreciated. Have a great evening.

The Heist is his 2014 book. I hope you have read The English Spy (2015).

It is easy to recommend the Daniel Silva novels.

Good Monday morning to all. Enjoy your Labor Day activities and have an outstanding week. Take care if you are out and about on busy highways.
