Happy Sunday morning! I hope this finds you doing well and enjoying these first few days of summer.

This week’s read was Stolen Prey by John Sandford, starring his main character Lucas Davenport, a detective-slash-very-rich-guy-due-to-the-computer-gaming-business he sold back in the day. I’ve read a ton of Sandford’s books, and this one didn’t disappoint. Based in the city of Minneapolis, it begins with Lucas getting mugged, followed up by a horrible discovery—a family who’s been slaughtered—and that trail leads all over the place…criminals from Mexico, bank computer hackers, 22 million in stolen gold, Lucas’s teenage daughter who’s forced to defend the family with lethal force, and people who steal horse manure, which leads us back to the mugging that started the entire book. Yeah, you read that correctly—horse manure. Don’t ask.

This book has tons of twists, turns, quite a bit of backstabbing and betrayal, and it’s really fast paced. I always enjoy Sandford’s sarcastic wit and the banter he creates between his characters. And the last line of the book is GREAT; it’s one final surprise that blows your mind. So give Stolen Prey a go, and enjoy. ‘Til next week, happy reading! 🙂
