"Golden Prey" is genuine Sandford, clever, complex, suspenseful, and funny! In the first big case as a Marshall, Lucas is hunting for the men who robbed a drug cartel of millions of dollars and coldly murdered 5 people, including a 6 year-old girl. Of course the cartel boss wants his money back so he sends 2 hired killers to also hunt for the men. They torture and kill their way across the U.S., so now Lucas is looking for them, also. "His most direct contact was with a service bureaucrat in Washington named Russell Forte." Forte just seems to be like a coach of a really good player; he encourages Lucas and gives him whatever he needs to do the job.
Lucas is helped along the way by lots of other cops and specialists. As usual, the Author's use of dialog and interactions with other characters is exceptional. This makes for a colossally enjoyable read!
Has not happened with Sandford. This might be his best yet. Partway through, realized it felt like an Elmore Leonard book. Writing was that strong, lean, elegant. Found myself going back to re-read the final gunfight. I rarely do that.
If you haven't read Sandford's recent foray into sci-fi, Saturn Run, pick it up. Excellent.
I'm an unabashed Sandford fan and love all the Davenport and Flowers novels, but I guess you can tell that from my first statements.
Golden Prey is more of the same old mix of roller coaster excitement and the apparent depravity of the criminal elements inhabiting the middle part of the USA. In this book that insane criminal behavior has spread to other parts of the country outside Minnesota - which is necessary since Davenport is now a US Marshal (albeit a very special one) and must travel around quite a bit.
