Gathering Prey (Lucas Davenport, #25)

The extraordinary new Lucas Davenport thriller from #1 New York Times–bestselling author and Pulitzer Prize–winner John Sandford.
 
They call them Travelers. They move from city to city, panhandling, committing no crimes—they just like to stay on the move. And now somebody is killing them.

Lucas Davenport’s adopted daughter, Letty, is home from college when she gets a phone c

Lucas Davenport’s adopted daughter, Letty, is home from college when she gets a phone call from a woman Traveler she’d befriended in San Francisco. The woman thinks somebody’s killing her friends, she’s afraid she knows who it is, and now her male companion has gone missing. She’s hiding out in North Dakota, and she doesn’t know what to do.

Letty tells Lucas she’s going to get her, and, though he suspects Letty’s getting played, he volunteers to go with her. When he hears the woman’s story, though, he begins to think there’s something in it. Little does he know. In the days to come, he will embark upon an odyssey through a subculture unlike any he has ever seen, a trip that will not only put the two of them in danger—but just may change the course of his life.

    Lucas Davenport relentlessly tracks down a murderous gang of hippies?!? It’s not even my birthday!

    Davenport’s adopted daughter Letty befriends a young woman, Skye, who is part of a subculture called Travelers who wander around the country living like hobos. After her friend is murdered Skye contacts Letty for help and tells her that the people responsible are a pack of jackals led by a guy named Pilate. Skye is convinced that Pilate’s gang roams around in an RV torturing and killing people.

    Davenport’s adopted daughter Letty befriends a young woman, Skye, who is part of a subculture called Travelers who wander around the country living like hobos. After her friend is murdered Skye contacts Letty for help and tells her that the people responsible are a pack of jackals led by a guy named Pilate. Skye is convinced that Pilate’s gang roams around in an RV torturing and killing people.

    Letty gets Lucas involved, and his initial skepticism fades as they find evidence that indicates that Pilate and his people have left a trail of bodies in their wake. Davenport starts tracking them across the upper Midwest through small towns and the weirdness of Juggalo gatherings. (You can do a Google image search if you want to an idea of what that looks like, but don‘t say I didn’t warn you.) Things get messy as usually happens when Lucas starts trying to run down killers, and he also has to deal with a nagging middle manager who wants to know why he’s wasting the taxpayer money trying to stop murderers who aren’t killing anyone in their state?

    OK, so I guess they’re not technically hippies although there is a certain Charles Manson family type vibe going on here. I still like to think of them as murderous hippies although even Manson would probably hesitate to sign up with this crew considering how crazily blood thirsty they are.

    While most Prey novels generally feature Lucas trying to figure out who the bad guy is for at least part of the book, this plays out a little differently in that Lucas almost immediately knows who he’s looking for and what they’ve done. The challenge here is in trying to find a group of people living off the grid as they roam around. Things soon escalate and the majority of the story is a straight up manhunt that allows Sandford to play to his strength of building the sense of momentum and tension that make his books such page turners.

    The one slightly off-key note in this is Letty. Sandford has made her an increasing part of the story in some of the recent novels, and she does make for a great smart-ass foil for Lucas. However, it seems like she’s being set up to star in her own series at some point soon, and sometimes the ways she’s inserted into the plot feel forced. She makes for a fun sidekick generally, but it’s always more fun to read about Batman than Robin. So it was a bit of relief when she fades into the background when the story really gets rolling, and Lucas becomes the center of the book’s attention.

    There’s also a sense of Lucas getting fed up with his position in a government agency. While he’s always had a natural feel for helping out his bosses with the media, Lucas has never had much patience with office politics or bureaucratic rules, and he’s seriously frustrated at the current American institutional mentality of being more concerned with the budget than in actually doing the job. Throw in him dealing with turning 50, and Lucas is one grumpy individual at the start of this one. All of this gives the book the feeling that it’s about to boil over, and that Davenport will have to consider making some changes in his life. (view spoiler)

    But whenever Lucas is in a funk, he can always count on the adrenaline rush of hunting bad guys to cheer him up, and he’s certainly one cheerful bastard by the end of this one.

    review of another edition

    According to a web site I was checking out last week, the four personal traits that define an effective leader are: honesty, openness, decisiveness and conscientiousness. Of all the cops in all the crime fiction I’ve read (quite a lot), Lucas Davenport is the one who most obviously possess all of these – and he does so in spades! You can also add humour, personal gravitas and a huge dose of charisma to the list. I guess you could say I’m a fan.

    It’s a pleasure to welcome him back for his 25th app

    It’s a pleasure to welcome him back for his 25th appearance – well, actually it’s slightly more than that if you add his cameos appearances in Sandford’s offshoot series featuring one of Davenport’s agents, Virgil Flowers. His normal gang are here – Shrake, Jenkins and Dell – but they play small parts in this story. This time around it’s daughter Letty who provides the major backup to Lucas. In this tale Lucas, in his role as a senior figure in Minnesota’s Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (I do wish Sandford would come up with a snappier department name), is alerted to the plight of a busker called Skye, by his daughter. Skye’s friend Henry has disappeared and she fears that he’s been abducted by a dark dude by the name of Porter Pilate, AKA ‘the devil’. Pilate travels around with a band of hangers-on and it’s feared he gets his kick out of killing people he meets along the way, often in the most gruesome manner imaginable. I wont go into it too much, but suffice to say Lucas goes searching for Pilate at a gathering of the Juggalos in Michigan’s isolated Upper Peninsula (U.P.).

    I’m not sure how plausible the whole tale is but it really is great fun. There’s already tension between Lucas and his bureaucratic boss and this is exacerbated by Davenport’s maverick insistence on chasing around after Pilate and his crew whilst ignoring calls for him to focus on a more politically sensitive case. Then there’s the father/daughter dynamic, as Letty gets ever more involved in the chase.

    I’ve noticed that a number of crime fiction writers pitch their action in some of the remoter parts of America, where law enforcement is in short supply – maybe a hick sheriff and some dumber than dumb deputies. I know Lee Child has done this with Reacher, on occasion; it allows a certain amount of latitude in terms of what can go on without heavyweight intervention. And such is the case here – out in the wilds of the U.P. all hell breaks loose.

    It’s escapist nonsense, of course it is. But it’s high quality escapist nonsense. I listened to the whole thing, brilliantly read by Richard Ferrone, with a stupid smile on my face. Bring on the next one please, Mr Sandford, and make it snappy.

    Alex is The Romance Fox

    What is the secret to keeping a long-running series successfully going for 25 books? Some of the challenges facing any author are keeping a character fresh and interesting and continuously having to come up with new, inventive and great story ideas.

    John Sandford has certainly met these challenges in Gathering Prey, the #25 installment in his superb The Prey Series.

    If you are a fan of this series like I am, you will not be disappointed in the latest story of the Lucas Davenport that we have seen

    John Sandford has certainly met these challenges in Gathering Prey, the #25 installment in his superb The Prey Series.

    If you are a fan of this series like I am, you will not be disappointed in the latest story of the Lucas Davenport that we have seen grow and evolve both personally and professionally and come to know over a long period of time.

    Lucas Davenport, Chief Investigator for the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is working on a case when his adopted daughter, Letty asks him to help Skye, a Traveler, she had met a while back in San Francisco, with the disappearance of her Traveler companion. Skye also tells the story of a fellow Traveler named Pilate, who is the leader of a Charles Mason like group that is killing and torturing other Traveler members.
    Lucas agrees to help look into these allegations and soon, together with Letty, becomes involved with solving the number of murders and disappearances of members of the Traveler groups.

    The action never loses steam and Lucas travels to the Upper Peninsula, working with the small towns law enforcement to find and capture the ruthless killers.

    Some of my thoughts:

    The first chapter, where Letty meets Skye and her travelling companion in San Francisco and the interaction between the three was a bit weird. Would I feed two people singing for money and had never met before? Maybe, probably. Would I give them my telephone number? If I say no, you would probably say….why not??? Is it because they’re homeless…shame on you!!! No, that wasn’t it!! It was the fact that the whole interlude did not feel real or true to me….but one could say…look, Letty did that out of kindness to someone who has less than her! Okay, maybe!

    The vivid depiction of the landscape absolutely stunning – the remoteness, the small and isolated small towns in the UP…..……

    not knowing what the UP was…….looked it up, via Google naturally, and discovered it was Upper Peninsula….well, I learnt something new…

    The characters in the story are described in a way that they feel real and are what one would expect of people to act and talk in that world.
    I found the Juggalos part of the plot totally fascinating. At first, I thought that the whole thing was created in the author’s head……but no, these characters actually exist….

     photo download_zpsstnpbplh.jpg

    I had never ever of this sub-culture before…and yes, I did go and google it as well…..and how interesting was that…..

    Sandford noted to blackfive.net,“The Juggalos are fans and followers of the group, “Insane Clown Posse.” They “travel” to see this group perform. They look like street people, but have bike packs, staffs, hiking boots, and a lot of the women have dogs. For awhile the FBI had them classified as a gang, but there is a lawsuit filed to declassify them. I guess the best description is for them to be considered a modern day hobo. They are not homeless and just “travel” around because they like it. The Juggalo subculture is split between violent and nonviolent factions. Some of the more violent ones have committed acts against the non-criminal ones.

    I liked the relationship and interaction between Lucas and Letty.

    Fast paced, suspense, humor, fantastic dialogue, realistic characters, dramatic landscapes, and some graphic violence make this a pretty good, no great read.

    And one of my favorite quotes is from Weather, Luca’s wife saying to him as he’s about to leave home to go out and catch some more bad guys……

    “Don’t get shot; it’d be really inconvenient for everybody.”
