Field of Prey

by John Sandford   

What It's About:

After 15 corpses turn up in an abandoned farmyard, Lucas Davenport must find the killer before the body count grows.

Why We Chose It:

In a word, Field of Prey is intense. John Sandford’s Lucas Davenport thrillers aim to keep readers guessing, and ultimately hand them a shocker of a conclusion. The writing has impeccable detail, making for an eerily vivid story of small-town serial murder.

On the fifth of July, Layton Carlson Jr. finally got lucky. He'd picked the perfect spot to lose his virginity to his girlfriend-anabandoned farmyard in the middle of cornfields: nice and private. The only problem was...something smelled bad. Really bad. He mentioned it to a county deputy he knew, and when the cop took a look, he found a body stuffed down a cistern. Then another, and another.By the time Lucas Davenport was called in, the police were up to 15 bodies. If that weren't bad enough, when Lucas began to investigate, he made some disturbing discoveries of his own. The victims had been killed over many years, regular as clockwork. How could nobody have noticed? One thing was for sure: the killer had to be someone they knew....
