Content descriptions

General Note: Sandford's webpage does not list Ocean Prey as part of Virgil Flowers series.
"A Lucas Davenport and Virgil Flowers novel"--Dust jacket.
Summary, etc.: "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."

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2021 March #2
    Lucas Davenport and Virgil Flowers are working together again in book 31 of the Prey series (following Masked Prey, 2020), and somehow the pairing never gets old. They are like Butch and Sundance, with badges. Sandford's ability to create totally engaging characters, along with what many critics call his "compulsively readable prose," remains undiminished. This time, after three coastguardsmen are shot dead in Florida, the locals call in Lucas, who in turn enlists Virgil and U.S. Marshal Rae Givens. The reader gets an all-inclusive tour of Miami, where every manner of low life seems to flourish. Lucas does the house-to-house while Virgil and Rae infiltrate the drug-smuggling mob suspected of the killings. The ending serves to enhance Virgil's legendary status in law-enforcement circles, while Rae walks off with a pair of pricey Tom Ford stiletto sandals, and Lucas, on the mend from a cockatoo attack, learns about some new thing called COVID-19 from his physician wife. It will be interesting to see where Sandford goes with that. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
