Novels sixteen through twenty in #1 New York Times bestselling and Pulitzer Prize-winning author John Sandford's Prey series, featuring Minneapolis homicide investigator Lucas Davenport.
Two bodies are found three weeks apart. Same condition, same display—but there's nothing to link the two victims, nothing to indicate that the killings end here. But that's not about to stop Lucas Davenport.
A wealthy woman and her maid are murdered. Robbery would seem the likely scenario, except that none of the clues are coming together for Lucas Davenport. At least not those he can see.
After one troubled college-age student disappears and two are found slashed to death, Lucas Davenport finds himself hunting what appears to be a modern-day Jack the Ripper.
Out of Lucas Davenport's past comes a psycho nursing a violent grudge. But why go after Davenport for revenge when Davenport's young daughter is so close, and so vulnerable?
When a simple robbery turns deadly, the thieves close in on the one woman who was the only possible witness: Lucas Davenport's wife. They have only one option—eliminate her. And fast.
