John Sandford

As readers, we all follow authors who reliably turn out good work. I'm a big fan of John Sanford and protagonist Lucas Davenport, a Minnesota State Bureau of Criminal Apprehension investigator in Sandford's "Prey" series. He's just cool. He's sexy, smart, a spiffy dresser and drives fast cars. Leaning toward sarcastic and cynical, he'll bend the rules, if he cares to follow them at all, to get his man, woman or child (ok, maybe not child).

John Sandford, a pseudonym for John Camp, won a Pulitzer Prize for journalism in 1986. In my reading travels, I have found that journalists write the tightest crime novels - John Connolly is another example - and Sandford's are fast-paced, gritty and suspenseful. And did I mention the clever dialog? Sandford has 21 novels featuring Lucas Davenport, all with "Prey" in the title. Rules of Prey is the first, and he's newest, Buried Prey, is set for release in May.

Find John Sandford at your Library.
