Description

Fan-favorite heroes Lucas Davenport and Virgil Flowers join forces on a deadly maritime case in the remarkable new novel from #1 New York Times-bestselling author John Sandford.

An off-duty Coast Guardsman is fishing with his family when he calls in some suspicious behavior from a nearby boat. It's a snazzy craft, slick and outfitted with extra horsepower, and is zipping along until it slows to pick up a surfaced diver . . . a diver who was apparently alone, without his own boat, in the middle of the ocean. None of it makes sense unless there's something hinky going on, and his hunch is proved right when all three Guardsmen who come out to investigate are shot and killed.

They're federal officers killed on the job, which means the case is the FBI's turf. When the FBI's investigation stalls out, they call in Lucas Davenport. And when his case turns lethal, Davenport will need to bring in every asset he can claim, including a detective with a fundamentally criminal mind: Virgil Flowers.

    This is just another great, fast moving, reading at 4o’clock in the morning book from John Sanford. Can’t wait for the next one…

    Read some other negative reviews about this book, but I read it and I don’t believe those reviewers actually read the book, more jealous than anything. The characters of Lucas, Bob, Rae, and Virgil are simply outrageous, brave, smart,tricky, and skilled: you can’t help but cheer them on in this incredibly smart book by Sanford. It is Lucas Davenport at his best with all his cronies, along for a crazy, intelligent, and twisting “bad guys are gonna get it” story. Read it, you’ll be happy you did.
  • Great Book

    An excellent crime novel. No strained or improbable plot twists. Sanford just has a good solid understanding of how criminal investigations at this level are conducted.
  • John Sandford never disappoints

    I read this in 3 days couldn’t put down except when I had to do something unavoidable. Like a double book with both long parts with both Lucas and Virgil and with a new character Rae. I hope she comes back again. Great job John.

    An avid like myself who sticks to certain authors because you know to expect a great read! I love John Sandfords characters in his Lucas Davenport series, they are reliable and like being with old friends. I have read every Prey novel and I remember every character so the history is there for me. For me this book hit the spot even though there were high and low points to read during the pandemic. However I did not enjoy the new pairing of characters that just don’t mix. The plot outweighed my own biases here because it was that much of a page Turner! The way the book began had me off my chair in laughter! So give this book a try🥂🍾
