Praise For Easy Prey

“You won’t want to miss it.” —Los Angeles Times

“Captivating.” —Chicago Sun-Times

“When you come out of the twists and turns that are Easy Prey, it is a marvel how [Sandford] could do this...he’s a writer in control of his craft.” —Chicago Sun-Times

“Crackerjack suspense...[Sandford’s] at the top of his game again with Easy Prey.” —New York Post

“Wildly successful...contains all the elements fans have come to expect: solid plot, gallows humor...sex, and the likeable, self-assured Davenport.” —Booklist

“A grand guignol of a climax.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Rapid-fire action...sharply evocative.” –Minneapolis Star Tribune

Easy Prey is hard to put down.” —Richmond Times Dispatch

“The dialogue is deft, the melodrama masterfully orchestrated and the conclusion truly culminant. As secrets explode, as bullets fly and bodies fall, and as the ground keeps shifting, there’s hardly time to keep up with the spectacle.” —The Los Angeles Times

“[An] ever-entertaining series. As always, it’s a joy to follow this rare cop who gets led more often by his gut instinct than by clues. His humor, understated and perverse, can be wildly funny, and the people he runs across are shrewdly conceived originals.” —Publishers Weekly

“Here’s hoping that John Sandford never retires Lucas Davenport or stops dreaming up diabolical killers for the supersleuth to battle. The author’s unbeatable at juggling suspense, comedy, sex...and [his] plots seem to be moving faster than ever.” —The New York Post

“Lucas Davenport is always in top form, and with Easy Prey, Sandford has another winner to add to the Prey books.” —The Orlando Sentinel
