A Lucas Davenport thriller by internationally bestselling novelist John . Sandford has always been at the top of any list of great mystery writers

A Lucas Davenport thriller by internationally bestselling novelist John Sandford. Theories abound when a Russian gets himself killed on the shore of Lake Superior - not just killed, but shot with fifty-year-old bullets. And his identity remains a secret: his personal papers say one thing; the FBI thinks something else entirely - ex-KGB. READERS LOVE THE PREY SERIES 'The best Lucas Davenport story so far.

John Sandford (Author), Richard Ferrone (Reader). Broken Prey (Lucas Davenport Mysteries). Book 21 of 26 in the Prey Series. Buried Prey is an episode in a string of Sandford novels going all the way back to 1989 that follow criminal investigations by a detective named Lucas Davenport.

One of the strongest in Sandford's Prey series. AUDIOBOOK NARRATOR: Richard Ferrone was good for general narration and men, but not women. He made them sound weird. DATA: Narrative mode: 3rd person. I love Sandford's characterization of Davenport, once a homicide detective for the Minneapolis PD and now a special agent for the state Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA).

But it’s not hard to see how this superior murder mystery gained the success on which he could build that career. The Lucas Davenport in Rules of Prey bears some resemblance to the more mature man who appears in the later novels, but there are differences.

They are complicated enough to hold my interest but not so convoluted that I can’t keep up on audio. This book mostly consists of several set pieces where Lucas Davenport and the . Marshals with occasional other police forces are closing in on/and or confronting the villains. I usually find Sandford’s annual Lucas Davenport and Virgil Flowers crime mysteries to be reliable sources of entertainment with their often engaging banter between the detectives and crafty foes to be detected and defeated. This one just felt off and cheap.

Prey" author John Sandford told The New York Post in June 2002 that he first thought of Davenport as a sociopath: "He had a problem with women. Even when he was in a relationship, he'd some women. But then he changed, mellowed out. Lucas Davenport, main character of the Prey series of books, recruited him into the BCA.

Six months ago, Lucas Davenport tackled his first case as a statewide troubleshooter, and he thought that one was plenty strange enough. But that was before the Russian got killed. On the shore of Lake Superior, a man named Vladimir Oleshev is found shot dead, three holes in his head and heart, and though nobody knows why he was killed, everybody - the local cops, the FBI, and the Russians themselves - has a theory. And when it turns out he had very high government connections, that's when it hits the fan." A Russian cop flies in from Moscow, Davenport flies in from Minneapolis, law enforcement and press types swarm the crime scene - and, in the middle of it all, there is another murder. Is there a relationship between the two? What is the Russian cop hiding from Davenport? Is she - yes, it's a woman - a cop at all? Why was the man shot with ... fifty-year-old bullets? Before he can find the answers, Davenport will have to follow a trail back to another place, another time, and battle the shadows he discovers there - shadows that turn out to be both very real and very deadly.
This is Sandford’s sixteenth novel involving his protagonist Lucas Davenport. This was not my favorite Davenport story because the investigation of the crime tended to get dragged out with a lot of incorrect decisions. The reader knows who the perpetrators are from the beginning, which is the way Sandford usually presents his stories, but these ‘wrong decisions’ only delay the inevitable and in my opinion makes for some uninteresting reading. Also, in this book, Davenport works alongside a Russian cop, or spy,--not sure which until later in the book—named Nadya Kalin, and I think Davenport was way more trusting of her than he should have been. She changed her story about herself several times and for whatever reason, that didn't seem to bother Davenport. With his previous intuitions, he would have simply refused to work with her any longer.

So, in this book, we find Lucas happily married to Weather and living in their “Big New House” with their new baby boy named Sam, and a state ward, whom we met in Sandford’s previous book, Naked Prey, named Letty West, a very precocious twelve year old little girl. Although she was a major player in Naked Prey, she is barely even mentioned in this one, but I’m sure Sandford is keeping her on for a future edition.

A Russian is murdered in a remote part of northern Minnesota near Lake Superior. A street woman named Trey is a witness to the murder. The murderer chases her and is about to kill her, but his gun jams. When he leaves, she goes to the dead man and finds $50,000 on him, which she takes. A week or so later, the murderer sees a woman whom he is convinced was the street woman, Trey. So he follows her and kills her by nearly decapitating her with a sharp wire. But it wasn’t Trey!

Turns out the dead man was a Russian and had very high Russian connections, so a Russian “cop” flies in from Moscow and Lucas flies up from Minneapolis. The FBI becomes involved as do the local police and lots of reporters. Not a whole lot is learned from the initial investigations, despite the high level of investigative power, but we readers soon know the shooter is young Carl Walther, grandson of Grandpa Walther, a communist spy who, during the war, committed some serious acts of atrocity, and who has been running a ring of families engaged in Russian “assistance” in northern Minnesota since the war ended. A fearless assassin in his own right, he is handing down his expertise to his grandson Carl, which includes random executions. So while there’s no doubt who is behind these murders, the clues Lucas and others pursue to uncover the spy ring and the murderer keep the story moving at a reasonable pace, although at one point I felt I had enough of ‘assumptions’.

And although Trey, the bag lady who had witnessed the first murder, played a minor role in the story, her initial exposure in the story was extremely well written, so it was a little disappointing that her involvement was very limited in solving the case, but in the end she was able to provide incontrovertible proof as to the killer.
I just bought and read ALL of the prey series in order and i can't wait for the next one. Sandford is as good as Trollope in conjuring up a believable, coherent community of characters and developing them with great skill. He succeeds in making the battered, lacking people who commit his crimes into real human beings and making their trajectories to destruction gripping. Moreover, he does not repeat his effects. And to quote Trollope, he understands the great principle of decorating a construction and never stoops to construct a decoration.
Lucas Davenport is one of the best series characters in this day and age. Even though I have most of this series in hardback, I find it rewarding to keep a Kindle in my pocket, and have probably bought most of what's on the library shelves. This series is timeless, from dial up phones and manual typewriters to smartphones and computers, it's the story that counts, and Sandford always delivers.
I didn't think this book was anywhere near as good as John Sanford's Prey series. So many times,I had to force myself to finish the book. This was definitely not a typical Sanford novel. I don't think I would recommend it to anyone. Very disappointed
Hard to put down
Very easy to be visualized
James needs to settle down and be a real person again

A good story but was not one that I could not put down. Too many story lines left unanswered, Del Capslock 's child is never mentioned again and the birth of Davenport's second daughter is ignored and the child is a toddler when we return to his life..
These details might not be pertinent to the major story but we are drawn into the lives of these detectives and would like to know the backstories. Also Sloan retires and except for the one instance is not heard from again. I have not yet read the last book, Silken Prey, so perhaps some of these issues are covered.
A Russian man is murdered on the shores of Lake Superior. A homeless woman is murdered in Duluth a few weeks later. Is there a connection? Lucas Davenport, in his new role as head of the statewide bureau of criminal investigation, is called in to investigate. I had some misgivings about this one when I saw the words "Russian" and "spy" in the book description. I am not a fan of spy novels. But Sandford, as usual, makes this about the characters and not shadowy governmental machinations. There is humor here. Some of it is laugh out loud. The story is not especially suspenseful. The reader is in on the plot from the beginning. What makes it interesting is how Davenport and his team put it all together. This was an enjoyable read and a very good addition to the Prey series.
Solid, like the others. However, you don't realize how much you like a big resolution until you don't have one. :) This was good like the others, but didn't quite have the highs and lows of the others. I wouldn't skip it, that's for sure. :)
