Ocean Prey begins with the murder of Coast Guardsmen and with the stalled FBI investigation into those killings. When Lucas identifies a group of smugglers dropping heroin into the Florida waters, he brings Virgil in to go undercover with the criminal gang.
Sandford deftly changes the focus in alternating chapters, keeping the pacing lively and the tension high. He does cop humor better than anyone since Joe Wambaugh, and Ocean Prey will only add to his reputation as one of the best thriller writers around. Highly recommended.
Intriguing storyline with descriptive and informative writing that draws the reader into each scene. Realistic procedures, actions and reactions. Believable characters with distinct personalities and great banter. Thought-provoking and occasionally snarky dialogue.
‘When it comes to a culture, it means that people who let their light shine will eventually get dragged down, and a lot of people will enjoy seeing that happen. If you’re in a tall poppy culture, it’s all right to be smart, but you can’t act smart. You can’t show it.”
“No, you’re too obscure to ruin. Get a few more years under your belt and a little more status, get closer to a pension, then you’ll be worth ruining. Ruining you now would be like shooting a squirrel and mounting its head. Nobody would be impressed.”
I will re-read this book and always look forward to, pre-order when possible, new works by this author.
Thank you, Mr. Camp!

Assuming control of the case from the FBI, Davenport makes good progress but needs that something extra. Lucky then that something extra comes in the shape of Virgil Flowers. As you’ll find with the Flowers novels in particular, the dialogue is full of sass and ribaldry. Davenport can mix it with the best of them but when the situation merits it, he’ll call the shots and you’d be a fool to think that he is being anything other than stone cold serious.
A good deal of the story is hung on scuba diving. Whether that is your thing or not, the research is meticulous and that shines through.
Although Davenport and Flowers make for an easy going pair, the narrative is tense when required and you are well aware that events can go south in a hurry.
No doubt about it, Sandford has done it again.
I have been reading the Prey series since the first one - what seems like forever ago - and love the way Davenport has changed, subtly in some ways, s he has 'matured'! Also enjoy all the Flowers books and the play of the two of them was excellent.
Thanks for giving me so much enjoyment over the years.
If you haven't read any of the prey series - you are missing something worth reading and if you have but not this one yet - read it you will enjoy it.
