Gathering Prey Review:
If you are a fan of John Sandford’s Prey series then you are familiar with how he starts his story off. The story starts off his usual way, getting right to business with setting the scene, with the characters who are involved and their perspectives on the events.
Skye and Henry are two Travelers, who lead a modern day nomad lifestyle and travel from city to city. They meet Letty, Lucas Davenport’s adopted daughter while she is a student at Stanford college.
Letty becomes friends with these two Travelers after she buys them some food at McDonald’s. She gives Skye her phone number and asked her to look her up when she is in the neighborhood.
On returning home to Minnesota from college, Letty gets a call from Skye. Skye is fearful for her life and is hiding out because her friend Henry has gone missing and she believes that someone is trying to kill them.
Lucas Davenport goes along for the ride when Letty decides that she will go to Skye and help her. Once Davenport hears Skye’s story he believes her.
The hunt and chase for the bad guy starts!
Finding the killer in the midst of traveling gang who operate on the periphery of society is no easy task. The chase for the killer, who leaves a trail of violent killings, takes Lucas over many States. Will Lucas be able to catch this elusive killer?
Gathering Prey Recommendation:
I was recommended to author John Sandford a few years back by Arlene. Thank you Arlene for introducing me to another author that I like!
I have been looking forward to doing the Gathering Prey book review because I like John Sandford’s Prey series. I have read quite a few of his Prey series books and have enjoyed reading them all.
I have not read that many crime/detective books and getting into the Prey series was fantastic because I knew that his books do not disappoint! I would like to call myself a fan but I have not read his other works to be classified as that.
John Sandford’s Gathering Prey is his latest book on the Prey series, of which there are now 25, including this one. His prolific work include the Virgil Flowers series (8 books), The Kidd series (4 books), The Singular Menace (2 books), Etcetera (4 books) and 3 Other novels. I am hoping to read those too someday!
Like other John Sandford’s Prey series books, Gathering Prey is easy to read and is a page turner in most part. His books have a great pace and they entice you to read more! This is why I like to read; because of the more…
Sandford’s books are known for its suspense and mystery and he doesn’t fail to deliver in the Gathering Prey book. Gathering Prey is not one of his best Prey series book that I have read but it is still a very good read.
I recommend you to read Gathering Prey. It is a great thriller. It contains twists and turns to give an exciting suspenseful story.
The plot is interesting and it is action packed so you don’t have time to be bored. The story starts off on a normal pace and ramps up all the way until the end of the book. It’s a roller coaster of suspense that you will enjoy.
