About Ocean Prey
Fan-favorite heroes Lucas Davenport and Virgil Flowers join forces on a deadly maritime case in the remarkable new novel from #1 New York Times-bestselling author John Sandford.
An off-duty Coast Guardsman is fishing with his family when he calls in some suspicious behavior from a nearby boat. It's a snazzy craft, slick and outfitted with extra horsepower, and is zipping along until it slows to pick up a surfaced diver . . . a diver who was apparently alone, without his own boat, in the middle of the ocean. None of it makes sense unless there's something hinky going on, and his hunch is proved right when all three Guardsmen who come out to investigate are shot and killed.
They're federal officers killed on the job, which means the case is the FBI's turf. When the FBI's investigation stalls out, they call in Lucas Davenport. And when his case turns lethal, Davenport will need to bring in every asset he can claim, including a detective with a fundamentally criminal mind: Virgil Flowers.
I have followed Lucas and Virgil for ALL of their books and loved the reads. Especially when they share a book! The subtle and not so subtle humor, is just plain fun. The continued use of characters from other adventures fits the kind of books I like to read. So getting to this book I had expectations of a great fun read that were met. What I didn’t expect was the tension I felt as Sanford got me deeper and deeper into the book and I started to fear that some of my well liked characters might not make it out alive! Nuff said and I always look forward to a Sanford read! Thanks John for making the COVID crap thing more endurable.
I’m not sure what to say about this one. The book felt a bit off from his normal writing. Like it was written by someone else. It did not flow for me like the others. Meh.
The best. Some of the Prey books get a little dark. This one has everything you expect from Lucas and Virgil without dragging you too far down. I had to restrain myself from reading through the night to finish it. Seriously, Sanford’s books aren’t written in one day and you need to spread them out or you miss too much .... or you can read it a second time like I always do.
I loved this book. Couldn’t put it down, all of Sanford’s beloved characters were in it. Reading, you could tell that a whole lot of research went into this book which would make an awesome movie. I was stuck to Federal Marshall Lucas Davenports goings on in Florida and around. Definitely an “edge of your seat adventure mystery”
Lucas is getting older—but still has that edge that made this series last so long...Rae, well, Rae is The Bomb!!!
Lucas is the man, Ok, a fictional man but so awesome. Fantastic story line, great to see the gang back together. Looks like we met some future new characters? Always read the Prey books straight through. No spoiler alert but one gut punch moment. Loved the book just not the last chapter. I Wish instead of ending with the Bahamian woman (who we didn’t know anyway) Lucas had paid a visit to the family of the “fallen” and ended with some closure for the readers. Just saying 🤷🏼♀️ Thx for another great read!!!!!
I anxiously await new Sanford novels, and this one certainly was worth it. Great plot, excellent pacing, and beautifully written. If only he could write them as fast as I read them. Been a fan since the first Prey novel and this one certainly keeps me in the fold.
Could not put this book down! As usual with this series.
Excellent easy read. Perfect for laying around the pool or curled up under a blanket.
Maybe it’s Virgil and Lucas and Rae together but the storyline, dialogue and characters clicked just right for me.
One of his best.couldn’t put it down .
Very good Prey novel! Loved Virgil and Rae would like more of them in upcoming books!

Sandford’s best yet. And that’s saying a lot.
Found the Prey book to be as exciting and fast paced as I’ve come to love. Enjoyed Lucas & Virgil talents being highlighted together and how they work off each other. Did not miss the reference to “F****** Flowers”. Flowers’ character has matured and he’s outgrown the need to be “put down “ by the other cops.
I went into this book nervous about whether or not I would be disappointed like I was with the last one. Short answer, no. This book brings back the Lucas of old and I couldn’t be happier. There was an event in this book that shattered me for a few chapters and truly brought out the Lucas Davenport fans have known over the last 30-some books. Bringing Flowers into the craziness that is the Marshal’s service was everything I never knew I needed. This crossover has me excited about more Prey/Flowers books and more crossovers in the future!!
