Description

“One of the strongest in Sandford’s Prey series.”—Entertainment Weekly

“Good, dark, perverse, bloody fun.”—The Washington Post Book World

Theories abound when a Russian gets himself killed on the shore of Lake Superior—shot with fifty-year-old bullets. But when it turns out he had very high government connections, state troubleshooter Lucas Davenport gets the call. Well, Lucas and a mysterious Russian cop with secrets all her own. Together, they’ll follow a trail back to another place and another time, and battle the shadows they discover there—shadows that turn out to be both very real and very deadly.

Praise For Hidden Prey (A Prey Novel #15)

“Eerily suspenseful.”—Entertainment Weekly
 
“Vintage Sandford—a tough, intriguing story wrapped around an equally tough and intriguing cop.”—Chicago Tribune
 
“Skillfully blends dark humor and the macabre in scenes worthy of a Coen brothers’ movie…pure delight.”—Orlando Sentinel
 
“Deft, action-packed, and slyly funny. Just when you thought the silky smooth Sandford couldn’t possibly get better, he does.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“The plot unfolds sharply, holding you relentlessly until its superb denouement. Sandford’s writing is as spare and direct as a Minnesota winter landscape, and his characters crackle with life…[Davenport] is the pounding heart of the novel.”—The Associated Press
