Publisher's Summary

“A crackling addition to [the] Prey series” (Entertainment Weekly) from number one New York Times best-selling author John Sandford.

In a wealthy Minneapolis neighborhood, two elderly women are bludgeoned to death. They are apparent victims of a random robbery, though nothing of value appears to have been stolen. But when Lucas Davenport looks deeper, he fears that the victims weren’t so random, and the items stolen were far from invaluable. As a pattern emerges it leads Lucas to...certainly not where he expected. Which is too bad, because the killers are expecting him. And that’s only the first surprise….

Great story line.

Great story. Lots of dry humour and irony. Glimpses of The main character, Lucas’ soft heart underneath his hard exterior.

Another great read

As always another great prey book. I was afraid I was not going to see another new Lucas Davenport thriller. Great plot, believeable and yet tricky.

Lighter but still fun

I am a huge "prey" fan and found this one to be less dark and psychological than the others. Still, its Lucas Davenport and company and still a fun listen. Expect it to be lighter than the previous thrillers. There is a small quilting angle for those quilters out there!

Great Summer Read

I really enjoyed this current addition to the "Prey" series. The focus was really on the crimes and included several twists and turns that I wasn't expecting. The overall production was slick and the flow was great. I recommend this as a great summer beach read or for a long road trip. I found myself not wanting to turn the story off.

One of the best Davenport books

This is one of the best Lucas Davenport tales. I just hate it when the last line is spoken because now I have to wait for another book. Great book with a lot of complexities as usual.

Invisible Prey

Very well thought out plot line as are all of the "Prey" series. Very colorful characters, especially the bad guys in this one! The narrator does an outstanding job, with many various accents (no problem distinguishing between characters. Great surprise ending. I have enjoyed all of the Lucas Davenport books and this is one of the best.

Fun but not enthralling

I have read every Lucas Davenport book as soon as it was published and this was my first "listen" in the series. I have to say that the narrator did not capture my interest. He portrays Lucas a bit differently than I have imagined him over the years and I can't hold him accountable for that. I just found it difficult to distinguish between the characters. An earlier review says just the opposite so I guess this is a draw. Decide for yourself.

Regarding the story, you know who the killers are early on. The story focuses upon Lucas and other characters as they unravel the mystery little by little, with some twists and surprises along the way. It's intelligently done and the quilting backdrop is interesting. But I found myself wishing for the more enthralling, heart-pumping hunt for the seriel murderer plots of the earlier Davenport series. This is still a great book and worth the read. After all, you just have to keep up with Lucas Davenport. I just couldn't give it higher than a four. As an earlier reviewer says, it's a good beach book and will certainly entertain you.

Sandford Does It Again. Nice Listen!


Heronimus Bosch AND the Lincoln Layer Mickey Haller - Wudda team! And as always Sanford twirls through layers of plots, each itself tightly engineered and Richard Ferrone once again executes flawlessly. PLUS there's a clever turn here on the old 'Locked Room' mystery that roasts that old chestnut deliciously.

'Invisible Prey' gave me my money's worth. Oh, as always, I recommend that you begin at the beginning of the Bosch series and work your way here. But If you must start with 'Invisible Prey' well... gotoit! Nice listen.

Lucas Davenport .......

This one was a little thin....but very good. There are points where the killers are obvious....but the story is drawn out....assuming that we can't figure it out. Big and little....come on John. I did like the effort though.....however I think Flowers will replace Davenport.....hmmmmmm.

Not a fan I guess.

If this is one of the better books in the series, I can only wonder about how poor the others must be. I found it a chore to listen to. The detecting was painfully stupid and the plot line completely uninteresting. The characters that are killed we don't even know. The side characters are better detectives than the detective, so who am I supposed to care about? Useless.

Invisible Prey (unabridged)

Loved it--it was my introduction to Lucas Devenport and Sandford's works. Since this one I have read or listened to the entire Devenport series. Well plotted with interesting lead characters. Good stories with excellent local color and description provided.
