Ocean Prey John Sandford Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
Fan-favorite heroes Lucas Davenport and Virgil Flowers join forces on a deadly maritime case in the remarkable new novel from #1 New York Times-bestselling author John Sandford.
An off-duty Coast Guardsman is fishing with his family when he calls in some suspicious behavior from a nearby boat. It's a snazzy craft, slick and outfitted with extra horsepower, and is zipping along until it slows to pick up a surfaced diver . . . a diver who was apparently alone, without his own boat, in the middle of the ocean. None of it makes sense unless there's something hinky going on, and his hunch is proved right when all three Guardsmen who come out to investigate are shot and killed.
They're federal officers killed on the job, which means the case is the FBI's turf. When the FBI's investigation stalls out, they call in Lucas Davenport. And when his case turns lethal, Davenport will need to bring in every asset he can claim, including a detective with a fundamentally criminal mind: Virgil Flowers.

User reviews about this book
I’m a Fan, but not for this book
I am along-standing fan of John Sandford and Lucas Davenport. I am crazy about Lucas but not so much about Virgil, so the story was just too long and had too many details about things that did not move the plot forward. I never thought I would say this about a Prey book but this one was almost boring.
Loved the book, the danger, the humor, the characters, everything. The COVID mention was unnecessary. Let’s stay in the fictional world please.
Dope Up & Down the Coast
Interesting and informative drug trafficking story. Good characters who played interesting roles. Interesting information about deep diving for drugs and precautions necessary.
A great read,
Started great and never stopped. Was glad to get another Lucas and Virgil novel. The best out there
By Dan Daily
I have followed Lucas and Virgil for ALL of their books and loved the reads. Especially when they share a book! The subtle and not so subtle humor, is just plain fun. The continued use of characters from other adventures fits the kind of books I like to read. So getting to this book I had expectations of a great fun read that were met. What I didn’t expect was the tension I felt as Sanford got me deeper and deeper into the book and I started to fear that some of my well liked characters might not make it out alive! Nuff said and I always look forward to a Sanford read! Thanks John for making the COVID crap thing more endurable.
I’m not sure what to say about this one. The book felt a bit off from his normal writing. Like it was written by someone else. It did not flow for me like the others. Meh.

The best. Some of the Prey books get a little dark. This one has everything you expect from Lucas and Virgil without dragging you too far down. I had to restrain myself from reading through the night to finish it. Seriously, Sanford’s books aren’t written in one day and you need to spread them out or you miss too much .... or you can read it a second time like I always do.
One of his best
I loved this book. Couldn’t put it down, all of Sanford’s beloved characters were in it. Reading, you could tell that a whole lot of research went into this book which would make an awesome movie. I was stuck to Federal Marshall Lucas Davenports goings on in Florida and around. Definitely an “edge of your seat adventure mystery”
Lucas is getting older—but still has that edge that made this series last so long...Rae, well, Rae is The Bomb!!!
Lucas Never Disappoints
Lucas is the man, Ok, a fictional man but so awesome. Fantastic story line, great to see the gang back together. Looks like we met some future new characters? Always read the Prey books straight through. No spoiler alert but one gut punch moment. Loved the book just not the last chapter. I Wish instead of ending with the Bahamian woman (who we didn’t know anyway) Lucas had paid a visit to the family of the “fallen” and ended with some closure for the readers. Just saying 🤷🏼♀️ Thx for another great read!!!!!
