    1. I received a free advance copy of this from NetGalley for review.The twenty-seventh book in a series would be when you’d really expect an author to run out of gas and just coast along on the fumes of creativity and the goodwill of hard core fans. So how do you explain John Sandford writing one of the most exciting Prey novels now? You can’t. So just enjoy it.Lucas Davenport is now a deputy US marshal, and he got the gig thanks to his political connections. In fact, Lucas has so much juice th [...]


    2. About ten years ago I had a job that required me to undertake a lengthy commute - it resulted in me being cocooned in my car for about three and a half hours each day. That’s when I started listening to audiobooks. The radio was driving me crazy – how many times can you listen to the same news headlines before madness sets in? So I was making regular trips to my local library to grab any audiobooks that took my fancy. They didn’t have great variety, but they did have a good stock of John S [...]


    3. Another well done book in the Lucas Davenport series. Always fast paced, always entertaining. This book introduced some new characters, as Lucas is now part of the US Marshals. As with all his books, there's a mix of dry humor and gruesome details.


    4. The “Prey” series began in 1989 which is pretty mind boggling, when you thing about it. I’ve been reading the books for years & have my favourites like every other fan. But I felt like the last couple of books had lost a bit of the old spark & wondered if that would continue in the latest instalment. The short answer is no, it hasn’t. The author has shaken things up by giving his popular MC a new job & surrounding him with a completely different cast of characters. Lucas is n [...]


    5. Reflecting on my completion of this read a week ago has moved me to up my rating on the pleasure meter. It stands out as more fun and clever over the batch of other mysteries and thrillers I’ve been reading. Also, it was refreshing with this one to get our hero Lucas Davenport out of Minnesota law enforcement and into the national scope in his new position with the U.S. Marshal Service. As a bonus for saving the ass of the Democratic candidate for President, his position allows him to pick his [...]


    6. “Toto, we’re not in Kansas anymore.” Or, in Lucas Davenport’s case, not in Minnesota. Davenport, formerly a Minneapolis homicide detective, turned Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension detective, is now working as a U.S. Deputy Marshal, which means that he has one whole big territory to cover – the U.S. of A. In the 27th installment of John Sandford’s Prey series, Golden Prey, Lucas has got friends in high places, thanks to his work saving the lives of some influential people in [...]


    7. If you're a John Sandford fan, you'll get what you expect with this book. They are getting to be formulaic, but I still enjoy them.


    8. Readers familiar with the Prey series know that Lucas Davenport left the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) and is now a U.S. Marshal. I am still trying to adjust to this change as is Lucas. This new career came about after he saved the life of a candidate for President. In effect a political appointment. There are others in the service who resent his coming in "from the top down" rather than having had to work his way up. Another adjustment is he now has to work anywhere in the co [...]


    9. I love this series. It's one of my favorite audiobook series. I love the narrators voice and the stories are always captivating and enthralling. Some books are better than others, but all are wonderfully entertaining. And I'm always looking forward to a Lucas Davenport novel.Golden Prey had less about Lucas's family life - which I really enjoyed, and it had less of the bullshitting that's was usually exchanged between the guys - which had me usually cracking up. So missing both of these aspects, [...]


    10. REVIEW OF DNF AUDIOBOOK; MAY 3, 2017Narrator: Richard FerroneLooks like I'm the only one who found the latest Prey book a bore. I don't mind same-old, same-old because when I like them, they invariably become comfort reads.Not so in this case. There wasn't any mystery, no twists, just Lucas on the hunt and that revolving around more hackneyed tropes - drug runners wanting their money back, out to show it's a bad idea to steal from them, and Lucas harrying all over the place. I like Davenport mor [...]


    11. Trademark Lucas Davenport with some suspense, characteristic humor, and action.There is little mystery and no real twists- but Lucas fans will enjoy Lucas's latest "hunt" in his new job as a U.S. Marshal.


    12. For its genre, it’s pretty good. Weird jumping into a series for the first time as it nears #30, but I️ didn’t seem to be missing anything crucial.



    13. This book Golden Prey, the 27th book in John Sandford's 'Prey' series, picked up where the story ended in the previous installment, Extreme Prey. Lucas Davenport, former investigator for the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA), after saving the life of the Democratic candidate for President when she was targeted by a group of homegrown extremists at the Iowa State Fair, has cashed in on his good deed landing a position with the United States Marshal Service as a deputy marshal. Daven [...]


    14. Another great entry into the Lucas Davenport series. I label these books as mystery/thrillers, but the mystery part is not completely accurate. We, the reader, know exactly who the bad guy is and what he's done. For us, it's more about watching the cat and mouse game as Lucas ruthlessly hunts down his prey (see how I did that?). The game is always thrilling, though, and despite knowing all the details of the crime and every move the bad guys make, there's plenty of suspense to go round. It was n [...]


    15. First John Sanford I have read in a long while. Quite an adventure with U.S. Marshal Lucas Davenport leading the chase.


    16. Golden PreyThis was a good book but not as good as I was hoping or expecting. I don't know if this is true or not but I think I read somewhere that this was the last book in the Lucas Davenport series. I'm really hoping that this is not true because it has become my favorite series. If it is I'll certainly be disappointed but I'm still looking forward to everything else John Sandford will write in the future.


    17. I received a copy of this from the publisher through NetGalley to review.GOLDEN PREY by John Sandford is the 27th book in the Lucas Davenport/Prey series that finds Lucas starting another chapter in his law enforcement career as he’s become a U.S. Marshal after leaving the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, and he finds that there is some initial resentment of the political influence that resulted in him getting the job.Lucas adapts as always, finding ways to get the most out of the pe [...]


    18. It's been several years since I have read one of Sandford's "Prey" novels. I'm happy to say that I picked the right one to jump back into the series. This was a highly enjoyable book, and I had a hard time putting it down.Sandford's protagonist, Lucas Davenport, has found himself in a new and exciting position. He has now been assigned to the U.S. Marshal's Service, as a special appointee. This move has allowed Sandford to move beyond the Minnesota area and expand the scope of Davenport's advent [...]


    19. So, when I started reading this book, I was surprised. I was kind of…bored.You see, I like this series and I like Davenport. But the people they start out chasing just bored the spit out of me. Evil? Sure. Violent? Absolutely. Dull as dishwater? Yup!I was tempted to give up.Enter Kort. Sociopathic. Unattractive. Bat (insert expletive here) crazy. Able to saw your limbs off you with a smile. Hello!!! I was in. And if Kort wasn’t enough, we eventually end up with a fierce foursome of females w [...]


    20. This book is fantastic! I cannot wait to go back and catch the rest of the series. Alex Davenport, US Marshal, is new to the Marshall's office but not new to law enforcement. He has been having a tough time trying to find out what he wants to do inside the parameters of his new position. He knows one thing though and that's that he wants to hunt. In this book he gets his chance. He's looking for a cold blooded murder who has no conscience and doesn't mind putting a bullet in anybody. He's been o [...]


    21. New US Marshall Lucas Davenport has expanded his horizons beyond Minnesota to the entire US making a positive change in his hard charging crime fiction boundary. He's dramatically drawn into a triangular hunt for a pair of murdering B&E fugitives who have resided on the Marshall's Most Wanted List for 11 years. Poole and his pal Darling are also pursued by a particularly vicious Mexican cartel hit team looking for the 7 million dollars Poole and Darling stole from their drug counting house. [...]


    22. Surprise, surprise! Another great entry in the Prey Series by John Sandford. *Yawn* Aren't they all great?This book is the long-coming departure that Sandford has been building up to over the last three books. Lucas is now a U.S. Marshall who gets to pick and choose his own cases. Guess what? The other Marshalls don't exactly like that so he's off to a rough start and getting a bit antsy for a good case to stick his nose into. It comes in the form of a cold blooded killer who's been off the rada [...]


    23. I really wasn't sure how I was going to like this latest Lucas Davenport novel. Lucas is now a US Marshal, removed from his support network of Del Capslock, Jenkins, Shrake, and Virgil.I need not have worried. Lucas has two excellent new foils in the form of the Marshal services Special Operations Group marshals Bob and Rae. They give Lucas a run for his money and the three characters gel well together.Members of a drug cartel are murdered, and one of them's granddaughter is also killed. Evidenc [...]


    24. Garvin Poole is a most-wanted, homicidal maniac, who partners with Sturgill Darling, a good ole' boy planner to rob millions from a Honduras drug cartel, killing five witnesses: four in the first 30 seconds and a little girl, who discovers the dead body of her grandfather. Lucas Davenport, having saved the life of a Presidential candidate in the last book, is now a U.S. marshal and decides to capture this criminal. He is in a race with the cartel, who want to wreak justice and send a female sadi [...]


    25. Gold is sometimes a good way to keep money, but not in all cases. In Golden Prey, they needed cash! Golden Prey is the 27th installment in the amazing Lucas Davenport series by John Sandford. And yesss! Lucas Davenport is back in a very thrilling adventure!Garvin Poole & Sturgill Darling are two very dangerous criminals, and they need cash. They rob the money of a drug cartel killing some of the cartel’s men and a 6 year old girl, the granddaughter of one of the men. They leave without tra [...]


    26. Lucas Davenport is back and now has a job as a US Marshall where he can pick and choose his cases.

Poole has been hiding out but recently decides to rob a counting house which leads to five deaths, including that of a six year old child. But Poole picked the wrong house and now has the cartel after him. They will stop at nothing to find him including torture and kill those that know anything abou [...]


    27. It is hard to believe that an author can continue to create such a long lasting character in good stories but, the author has now succeeded through 27 Lucas Davenport novels. Throughout the series, the character has evolved and is now striking out in a new career as a US Marshal. It moves Davenport out of his Minnesota comfort zone and now offers the opportunity for story lines to expand. New characters are introduced that should complement him as the series progresses.As always, the author has [...]


    28. LOVED the endingteehee! Our favorite Marshall is out chasing bad guys-great plot, character development, and suspense. What a ride


    29. I've been a fan of John Sandford's Lucas Davenport series from the very first book. The latest is Golden Prey - the 27th entry!Sandford has moved Davenport's professional (and personal) life along over the years. This latest entry has Davenport taking a deputy position with the US Marshals. This is a great development - Lucas can look at cases across the country. And even better - he can pick and choose the cases he wants to work - thanks to his political connections.In Golden Prey, he decides t [...]
