By John Sandford
Lucas Davenport investigates a vitriolic blog that seems to be targeting the children of U.S. politicians in the latest thriller by #1 New York Times-bestselling author John Sandford.
The daughter of a U.S. Senator is monitoring her social media presence when she finds a picture of herself on a strange blog. And there are other pictures . . . of the children of other influential Washington politicians, walking or standing outside their schools, each identified by name. Surrounding the photos are texts of vicious political rants from a motley variety of radical groups.
It's obviously alarming--is there an unstable extremist tracking the loved ones of powerful politicians with deadly intent? But when the FBI is called in, there isn't much the feds can do. The anonymous photographer can't be pinned down to one location or IP address, and more importantly, at least to the paper-processing bureaucrats, no crime has actually been committed. With nowhere else to turn, influential Senators decide to call in someone who can operate outside the FBI's constraints: Lucas Davenport.
Masked Prey1By Baldacci Super FanI find it hard to believe that John Sandford wrote this book. I have read very novel ever written by Sandford and always hated to see them end. I could not wait for this one to be over. It was a waste of time and money. Maybe John Sandford was hacked and a college freshman wrote this using his name. Horrible book...maybe time for Lucas and Sandford both to retire.
Liberal rant disguised as a book2By Longhorn5555Keep your politics to yourself, Mr. Camp. We get enough BS from other sources.
Not his usual2By 123razinBesides the fact I’ve always enjoyed his books, there is no reason I completed reading the entire book.
Not his best work2By TyInOKLucas is one of my favorite fictional characters of all time and I have loved the Prey and the authors other series but this was the first one where the politics of the author really interferes with the plot/story. It felt like an anti-conservative diatribe as much as a fictional story. It felt like a political commercial. His usual amazing plot seemed mailed in, and seemed only to service his politics, not the story.
Awesome, as usual5By Corrina2008If you’ve followed the Reacher series then this will be exactly as satisfying as all the previous books. YES!! Buy this book!
Not the strongest entry4By DAWEMAThis isn’t the strongest entry in the Prey series, but even so, it’s a solid story.
Masked Prey4By Laura__FAfter reading the last Prey book, I thought that Lucas was finally going to have to hang it up so I was very excited that he's continuing. The way this book ended left me feeling disappointed. This isn't the Davenport that I have come to love so much. That being said, I did like most of this book and I'm hoping that the next one is back to the Lucas of old
Masked prey2By 21qazAverage and very slow read. Disappointing.
Masked Prey4By Peter 14Sandford still has good stories to tell. This one wasn’t as good as some of the others. The outcome was predictable.
?1By jarf13Usually a big Sanford fan I had to force myself to finish this book. Kept thinking it had to get better or more interesting. Sorry, it never did.
