Publisher's Summary

The extraordinary new Lucas Davenport thriller from number-one New York Times best-selling author and Pulitzer Prize winner John Sandford.
They call them Travelers. They move from city to city, panhandling, committing no crimes - they just like to stay on the move. And now somebody is killing them.
Lucas Davenport's adopted daughter, Letty, is home from college when she gets a phone call from a woman Traveler she'd befriended in San Francisco. The woman thinks somebody's killing her friends, she's afraid she knows who it is, and now her male companion has gone missing. She's hiding out in North Dakota, and she doesn't know what to do.
Letty tells Lucas she's going to get her, and, though he suspects Letty's getting played, he volunteers to go with her. When he hears the woman's story, though, he begins to think there's something in it. Little does he know. In the days to come, he will embark upon an odyssey through a subculture unlike any he has ever seen, a trip that will not only put the two of them in danger - but just may change the course of his life.


What the Critics Say

"There is no limit to John Sandford's ability to keep new breath and blood flowing into his Lucas Davenport novels. This is a series you must be reading if you are not already." (

Terrific as usual!

I hope by the way it ended, though, that this is not the last of Lucas and friends! I've come to love them. I especially love hoe Lucas' relationship with Lettie has been fleshed out. I guess we'll have to wait (impatiently) until next year this time. The story really kept going, no slow pacing at all. Richard Ferrone, as always, was a great narrator. He translates Lucas well, where I can almost visualize him. I highly recommend this and all the other Prey novels. If I could give it ten stars I would!
