When a Russian sailor is found shot to death on the shore of Lake Superior, everyone has a theory: the local authorities, the FBI, even a female cop flown in from Russia. Lucas Davenport has a theory too - the right one - and it's putting him in more peril than he's ever faced before.
In his new Hidden Prey, however, Sandford has outdone himself, plotwise, not only in terms of ingenuity but also in sheer perversity … It's just good, dark, perverse, bloody fun. There are crime writers who are more challenging than Sandford, who plunge more deeply into the human condition, but it's hard to think of anyone who is more consistently entertaining. You want to know the only thing wrong with this guy? He makes it look easy.
