Storm Prey by John Sandford is the 20th book in the “Prey” thriller series. Publisher: Putnam, May 2010

The brilliant new Lucas Davenport thriller from the #1 New York Times-bestselling author.

“Sandford’s track record as a bestselling author is amazing, but it’s not an accident,” wrote Booklist of Wicked Prey. “His plotting is sharp, his villains are extraordinarily layered, and his good guys are always evolving.”

And this time, there’s a storm brewing. Very early, four forty-five on a bitterly cold Minnesota morning, three big men burst through the door of a hospital pharmacy, duct-tape the hands, feet, mouth and eyes of two pharmacy workers, and clean the place out. But then things swiftly go bad, one of the workers dies, and the robbers hustle out to their truck—and find themselves for just one second face to face with a blond woman who’s driven into the garage.

Weather Karkinnen, surgeon, wife of an investigator named Lucas Davenport.

Did she see enough? Can she identify them? Gnawing it over later, they conclude that there is only one thing they can do: Find out who she is, and eliminate the only possible witness.

Filled with his brilliant trademark suspense and some of the best characters in suspense fiction, Storm Prey—the twentieth novel in the Prey series—is further proof that “John Sandford is at the top of his game” (The Washington Post).

I can never get enough of John Sandford. I know when I read his book, he is going to take me on a thrilling roller coaster ride that I do not want to get off. Weather innocently sees a van pull out of the hospital, unknown that the occupants were involved in a crime. Lucas is immediately on the case protecting Weather and finding these guys before any harm comes to her. This is a great read in the continuing adventures of Lucas Davenport. My rating: 5 stars
