Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0399184570, Hardcover)Lucas Davenport’s first case as a U.S. marshal takes him into unexplored territory, in the thrilling new novel in the #1 New York Times–bestselling Prey series.
Thanks to some very influential people whose lives he’s saved, Lucas Davenport has a new job. He is a U.S. marshal, but not just any marshal—one with unusual scope. He gets to investigate whomever he wants, wherever he wants, across the country, and once in a while, he might be called upon for “special cases.” How special? They couldn’t come from anyone higher.
But his first case is something different. A rash of audacious robberies reminds Davenport of a criminal he once chased several years ago, the leader of a gang focused only on large cash crimes, and who didn’t mind leaving bodies behind. The last time he was heard from, a shootout left two FBI men dead, and now Davenport thinks the leader might be back.
Davenport knows this is the kind of investigation he’s been hired to pursue, and he knows something else as well: This could get ugly fast . . . so he’d better be up to it.

"The man was smart and he didn't mind killing people. Welcome to the big leagues, Davenport. Lucas Davenport's first case as a U.S. Marshal sends him into uncharted territory, in the thrilling new novel in the #1 New York Times-bestselling series. Thanks to some very influential people whose lives he saved, Lucas is no longer working for the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, but for the U.S. Marshals Service, and with unusual scope. He gets to pick his own cases, whatever they are, wherever they lead him. And where they've led him this time is into real trouble. A Biloxi, Mississippi, drug-cartel counting house gets robbed, and suitcases full of cash disappear, leaving behind five bodies, including that of a six-year-old girl. Davenport takes the case, which quickly spirals out of control, as cartel assassins, including a torturer known as the "Queen of home-improvement tools" compete with Davenport to find the Dixie Hicks shooters who knocked over the counting house. Things get ugly real fast, and neither the cartel killers nor the holdup men give a damn about whose lives Davenport might have saved; to them, he's just another large target. Filled with his trademark razor-sharp plotting and some of the best characters in suspense fiction, Golden Prey is further reason why "Sandford has always been at the top of any list of great mystery writers" (The Huffington Post)"--
