Upcoming: EXTREME PREY by John Sandford (G.P. Putnam’s Sons)


The 26th Lucas Davenport novel! After finishing Gathering Prey, I was a little concerned that the series might have ended. Thankfully, a couple of a days ago, John Sandford announced Extreme Prey! To be published in April 2016 by G.P. Putnam’s Sons, it sounds pretty interesting:

After the events in Gathering Prey, Lucas Davenport finds himself in a very unusual situation — no longer employed by the Minnesota BCA. His friend the governor is just cranking up a presidential campaign, though, and he invites Lucas to come along as part of his campaign staff. “Should be fun!” he says, and it kind of is — until they find they have a shadow: an armed man intent on killing the governor… and anyone who gets in the way.

Can’t wait to read this. If you haven’t tried the Prey series, yet, I highly recommend it. John Sandford is easily one of my all-time favourite authors.

  1. Interesting to see an established character having to switch gears/careers after 26 novels. Sounds like the series may be moving from mystery/detective fare to more of a political thriller vein. Some people probably won’t like the switch, but it could add some new spice to this series.

    • Some people might be annoyed, true. But, Sandford’s already injected some politics into the Prey series (especially with Silken Prey), and he did write a political thriller stand-alone not so long ago (Dead Watch). So, I’m hopeful. 🙂
