Righteous Prey

We rated this book:


George Sonnewell’s rage has been building inside him since maturing in an abusive household. Now, he is a billionaire living in San Francisco, where the homeless situation irks him to no end. He decides to act and murders a homeless person. Shortly afterward, he makes a phone call and lets the recipient know their plan has been set in motion. Sonnewell is a member of a group called “The Five,” a cabal of kindred spirits seeking to satiate their bloodlust and take out society’s problems. The third of the planned five murders occur in Minnesota, which necessitates the involvement of US Marshal Lucas Davenport and Detective Virgil Flowers. The murders have the feds’ hackles raised, and they’re scrambling to prevent any further deaths. Flowers and Davenport’s skilled interviews yield clues to the Minnesota suspect, leading to the killer making mistakes. However, nothing is certain with a group of determined killers.

Righteous Prey reunites the team of Flowers & Davenport for an action-packed romp across the United States. Davenport and Flowers return with their wise and snarky ways, matched up against formidable adversaries. Sandford goes all in with this intelligent, frequently humorous, and savage crime narrative. An unputdownable thriller.
