Lucas Davenport tracks a prolific serial killer in the new nail-biting #1 New York Times-bestseller from John Sandford.

Clayton Deese looks like a small-time criminal, muscle for hire when his loan shark boss needs to teach someone a lesson. Now, seven months after a job that went south and landed him in jail, Deese has skipped out on bail, and the U.S. Marshals come looking for him. They don’t much care about a low-level guy—it’s his boss they want—but Deese might be their best chance to bring down the whole operation.

Then, they step onto a dirt trail behind Deese’s rural Louisiana cabin and find a jungle full of graves.

Now Lucas Davenport is on the trail of a serial killer who has been operating for years without notice. His quarry is ruthless, and—as Davenport will come to find—full of surprises…

Story Locale: Las Vegas

Series Overview: Lucas Davenport is a true maverick; whether he’s working for the law or skirting procedure, he utilizes his exceptional ability to get inside the mind of a killer, along with his select contacts in the government, the media, and the criminal underworld to get the job done. He’s worn many hats during his career in Minnesota—police officer, detective, BCA investigator, state troubleshooter—but his newest job takes him into the biggest arena of all.

SANDFORD’S BIGGEST SERIES: A consistent #1 or #2 New York Times-bestseller.

A MAJOR LIFE CHANGE FOR LUCAS DAVENPORT: As a U.S. Marshal, picking his own cases, refreshing the series and giving Davenport a new national stage on which to operate.

“If you haven’t read Sandford yet, you have been missing one of the great summer-read novelists of all time.”—Stephen King
