John Sandford’s latest novel is “Golden Prey.” Lucas Davenport is no longer working for Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. He’s gone over to the U.S. Marshal’s service where he can pick his own cases wherever they lead him – and this case has led him into real trouble. Neither the cartel killers nor the holdup man give a damn about what he’s done before – now he’s just another target. “Golden Prey” is also available on CD.
