Reviews Twisted Prey (Lucas Davenport #28)

  • RachelW (BamaGal)
    Competent, by-the-numbers read; but dry and not overly compelling. Davenport just isn't fun anymore, and I find I much prefer the Virgil Flowers books these days. The ending was anticlimactic and unsatisfactory. Maybe it's time to wrap this series up...

    4 starsLittle does Lucas know at the beginning of this story that he has an appointment with an old nemesis of his. Psychopath Taryn Grant is back. She is now a United States Senator and very powerful, as well as being very rich. She can buy just about anything – or anybody – she wishes. When US Senator Porter Smalls and his sometimes lover and his wife’s best friend Cecily “CeCe” Whitehead are having a planning session at his out-of-th...

    Apt Title. I received this book free from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review. Written by John Sandford and published by G.P. Putnam's Sons, New York in 2018, this novel is the latest in the Lucas Davenport “Prey” series. We have known Lucas as a police detective in Minnesota, but now he is a U.S. Marshall investigating the attempted murder of a U.S. Senator in the Washington, D.C. area, and the murder o...

    It's always fun to pick up a book with Lucas Davenport. While I miss him working in MN, he has built up a crew to support him that are just as fun to read about. The other Marshalls, Rae and Bob fit in well with Lucas, they can talk about common things and are just as blood thristy, but not quite as sneaky as Lucas.I liked that this book brought about some familiar faces in the case they worked, the 2 Minnesota Senators from a case that Lucas wor...

    Another winner by John Sandford!!!

    Another great entry in the Prey series. When Porter Smalls is involved in a car accident that kills his companion, he calls Lucas to investigate. They both are convinced that Taryn Grant has once again set her sights on Smalls, but can Lucas prove it? With some help from Kidd, Flowers, Ray, and Bob, Lucas does what he does best. Great read, highly recommend.

    I swear John Sanford is improving with age. The last 3-4 Lucas Davenport books have been his best and this is no exception. Great story, edge of your seat typical Lucas - it was great!
  • Stephanie
    Seriously, #28 in John Sandford’s Lucas Davenport/Prey series? Wow – I am pretty sure I have read them all. Some of them knocked me out, while others were more in the better-than-average-and-sufficiently-entertaining vein. Twisted Prey, which I received from Penguin Group Putnam and NetGalley in exchange for my honest review, falls into the second category. Lucas Davenport is the protagonist in all Sandford’s “Prey” books. Formerly part...

    I enjoyed this book a bit more than the last couple in the series. I feel like I've been reading Lucas forever. I enjoy the character and the writing. Lucas comes up against an old nemesis in Taryn Grant. Someone tries to kill a senator from Minnesota. Could it be the other senator from that great state who believes he is standing in her way to becoming president? The characters, especially Taryn are a bit over the top but there probably are peop...

    Lucas Davenport is back and doing what he does best, now as a U.S. Marshall and facing an old enemy that makes the politicians of today seem tame. Join him as he investigates the attempted assassination of a U. S. Senator and opens up a whole can of worms where all kind of malignant things slither out. But you know Lucas...he always gets his man...or woman.Highly recommended! This book is due to be released in April 2018.
  • Cheryl
    Lucas Davenport is still going strong and so is the writing of John Sandford. Thoroughly enjoyed this book and love the Lucas as the U.S. Marshal.
  • Laura
    I like Davenport as a US Marshall - It isolates him a bit from day to day department politics and gives him a broader range of cases.
  • D.E. Heil
    I thought that this was a good novel and made Lucas Davenport's transition to a new agency relatively believable. There was enough action with new characters, and that was refreshing to see.
