About the Book

Wicked Prey

Danger stalks Lucas Davenport at work and all too close
to home, in the superlative new thriller by the #1 New York
bestselling author.

For twenty years, John Sandford’s novels have been beloved
for their “ingenious plots, vivid characters, crisp dialogue
and endless surprises” (The Washington Post), and
nowhere are those more in evidence than in the sudden twists and
shocks of WICKED PREY.

The Republicans are coming to St. Paul for their convention.
Throwing a big party is supposed to be fun, but crashing the party
are a few hard cases the police would rather stayed away. Chief
among them is a crew of professional stickup men who’ve
spotted several lucrative opportunities, ranging from political
moneymen with briefcases full of cash to that armored-car warehouse
with the weakness in its security system. All that’s headache
enough for Lucas Davenport --- but what’s about to hit him is
even worse.

A while back, a stray bullet put a pimp and petty thief named
Randy Whitcomb in a wheelchair, and, ever since, the man has been
nursing his grudge into a full head of psychotic steam. He blames
Davenport for the bullet, but it’s no fun just shooting him.
That wouldn’t be painful enough. Not when Davenport has a
pretty fourteen-year-old adopted daughter that Whitcomb can target

And then there’s the young man with the .50 caliber sniper
rifle and the right-wing-crazy background, roaming through a city
filled with the most powerful politicians on earth... Rich with his
brilliant trademark suspense and some of the best characters in
suspense fiction, WICKED PREY is further proof that “Sandford
is one of the most consistently entertaining crime writers working
today” (Booklist).
