It's a couple of weeks before the big Republican party convention: thousands of people spending cash, which is flowing into a relatively inadequate Brinks warehouse, protected by only three or four armed guards. The robber's plan is to distract the cops by manipulating and alerting them to a possible assassination attempt. Lucas Davenport meanwhile has problems of his own, targeted by a psychopathic pimp, who blames Davenport for the fact he's in a wheelchair. Only it's not Davenport he's going after; it's his innocent daughter, Letty.Hide synopsis

For twenty years, John Sandfords novels have been beloved for their ingenious plots, vivid characters, crisp dialogue and endless surprises (The Washington Post), and nowhere are those more in evidence than in the sudden twists and shocks of Wicked Prey. The Republicans are coming to St. Paul for their convention. Throwing a big party is supposed to be fun, but crashing the party are a few hard cases the police would rather stayed away. Chief among them is a crew of professional stickup men whove spotted several lucrative opportunities, ranging from political moneymen with briefcases full of cash to that armored-car warehouse with the weakness in its security system. All thats headache enough for Lucas Davenportbut whats about to hit him is even worse. A while back, a stray bullet put a pimp and petty thief named Randy Whitcomb in a wheelchair, and, ever since, the man has been nursing his grudge into a full head of psychotic steam. He blames Davenport for the bullet, but its no fun just shooting him. That wouldnt be painful enough. Not when Davenport has a pretty fourteen-year-old adopted daughter that Whitcomb can target instead....And then theres the young man with the.50 caliber sniper rifle and the right-wing-crazy background, roaming through a city filled with the most powerful politicians on earth....Rich with his brilliant trademark suspense and some of the best characters in suspense fiction, Wicked Prey is further proof that Sandford is one of the most consistently entertaining crime writers working today (Booklist).

The book was excellent, the condition was excellent.
I've never been disappointed in any of his books. I've read all the "prey" books and am waiting for the last "flowers" book. Don't know what to do without Lucas to look forward to. Not expecting a great deal from the TV movie next week. Mark Harmon is no Lucas Lavenport.
After all his books with Lucas Davenport I was afraid he might be writing just to be writing. No. He is still at the top of his game and even better if that is possible.
Fiction is not really my type of book, but I read "Rules of Prey" many years ago in desperation for something to read. I was hooked instantly. John Sandford is still among the very few fiction writers I like. Another being Tolkien.
There is no one like him. I have recommended his "prey" series to many friends
