Overview

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist John Camp has written many best-selling novels under his popular pseudonym John Sandford. A masterful thriller filled with rich human drama and razor-sharp suspense, Sudden Prey is a chilling addition to the Prey series. When his bank-robbing wife is gunned down during a shoot-out with the cops, Dick LaChaise swears revenge on each officer involved in her death. Now Deputy Police Chief Lucas Davenport feels powerless as LaChaise mounts a campaign of terror. The husband of one officer is brutally murdered. The wife of another executed at work. As the tension mounts, Davenport knows he must stop the madman before he turns on Davenport's loved ones. Filled with heart-stopping action and unforgettable characters, Sudden Prey proves once again Sandford's ability to keep you precariously balanced on the edge of your seat. Dick LaChaise's gruesome sense of humor, brought to life by the deep growly tones of Richard Ferrone, will linger in your memory far into the night.

No one knows how to take apart a cop's family by death and grief like John Sandford. I melted when one by one they died. It was a hideous plot. Good job.
