    From Publishers Weekly

    Det. Lucas Davenport has battled some real demons over the past 15 Prey novels and drifted in and out of lust and love with a host of women. But now he's happily married to the lovely Weather; has a nine-month-old son, Sam; and takes care of his 12-year-old ward, Letty West. Sure, he's got a measure of the old angst, but he's growing accustomed to the good life, spending quality time alone on the couch drinking beer and watching TV golf. His new job is running the Office of Regional Research at the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension where he looks into various crimes and "fixes shit" for the governor. So when a dead Russian shows up on the docks in Duluth, Lucas is assigned to shepherd the lady investigator, Nadya Kalin, being sent by the Russian government. From the very first pages, the reader knows it's teenager Carl Walther who has killed the Russian. What makes the book intriguing is the manner in which the sagacious Davenport goes about uncovering the rest of the co-conspirators-a gang of Minnesota-based Communist spies headed by Carl's grandpa, 92-year-old ex-KGB colonel Burt Walther. That Sandford makes this unlikely plot believable is a mark of his mastery of the technical aspects of the mystery form and a testament to his overall writing skills. Readers will be pleased with this relaxed version of the moody Minneapolis investigator. In past novels, the womanizing Davenport would have romanced the good-looking Russian lady, but the new Davenport is content to play the part of friend and protector and go back to his cozy family with an unstained and remarkably contented soul.

    From Booklist

    A Russian sailor is the victim of a professional assassination on the docks of Duluth. Wary of international implications, the governor of Minnesota asks Lucas Davenport, the chief investigator for the state's Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, to investigate. Major Nadezhda Kalin, a representative of Russian law enforcement, assists Davenport. The murder may be linked to the remnants of a dormant Soviet Union network established between the world wars but forgotten by the motherland. The descendants of the original network members have all melded into the American mainstream. Davenport and Kalin pursue the case through the rural mining towns of northern Minnesota even as they become the targets of the shadowy assassin. The sixteenth Prey novel is less harrowing and not as dark as many of its predecessors. It's also more humorous--even the suicide of a key character is accompanied by a sly, graveyard one-liner--with deft Davenport observations on the curious behavior of the opposite sex in general and on Russian women in particular. Similarities to previous Prey thrillers: high entertainment value; deftly rendered characterizations; and clever, believable dialogue. Expect another best-seller and stock up accordingly.

    This time, Sandford dips his toe into international espionage with the murder of a Russian seaman with past ties to the Soviet KGB. The seaman had powerful connections back in Russia and his murder in Minneapolis, prompts the Russian government to send a Russian police officer, Nadya Kalin, (who is actually a Major in Russian Intelligence) to the USA to "observe and report" on the police investigation headed by Lucas Davenport. They end up uncovering a Soviet Stalinist spy-ring dating back to World War II, dredging up past secrets which Washington and Moscow would prefer were kept in the past for reasons of diplomacy...
    OK, now for the downside - the plot is simply ludicrous! You find this all out near the beginning of the book so I am not giving away the plot by saying this - a very old man, the head of the spy-ring, who can still remember the 1920's (he remembers the Tsar and the Revolution for God's sake!) and who can still drive a car at the age of 90-something is directing his teenage great-grandson to carry out murders, believing that the Soviet Union will return eventually! He has a 70-year old gun with 50-year old bullets and he and the grandson are going around shooting people like a couple of KGB thugs from an old James Bond movie! Then you have the female major from Russian Intelligence who can't decide whether to be butch macho or a wilting lily. She would be the leading candidate for the "most unlikely Russian spy ever invented" award. Then the ending is a real let-down. Sandford must have decided he had no good way to end the story so he comes up with the cop-out that he wrote.
    An interesting story which had the potential to go really far and great, and it ends up collapsing under the weight of its own ridiculousness. I get the feeling we haven't seen the last of Nadya Kalin either. She'll be back.

    3.0 von 5 Sternen Fair...that really sums it up. 1. Juni 2004
    Von R. Shaff - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
    I've read all of Sandford's previous PREY novels as well as his KIDD novels; at this point, the KIDD novels, particularly the last two offerings, are easily the better reads, in my opinion. While the PREY novels are noted for simple yet intriguing storylines, HIDDEN PREY goes the opposite direction. Sandford decides to take an improbable storyline, a rather complex one at that, and tones down our hero, Lucas Davenport. In the end, this makes for a very apathetic read, particularly if you've enjoyed the sharp edge of Davenport in novels past.
    HIDDEN PREY begins with the murder of a Russian merchant marine, or so it seems. Soon thereafter, a homeless woman is garroted, the site extremely gruesome. What appears to be two unrelated murders turns into an apparent murder/cover-up and Lucas Davenport is called in to begin an investigation. Lucas is partnered with a Russian "police officer," sent over by Moscow to oversee the investigation of the murdered Russian. Lucas smells a rat immediately and, throughout the book, peppers the Russian officer for information and "why" she's truly there.
    So as not to spoil the remaining plot...Sandford is obviously sending Davenport through middle age. He is mellowing Lucas and dulling his previously sharp edge. And, while this may follow the chronology of 15 previous PREY novels (i.e. Lucas aging), it is not why most people read fiction. Although there are bursts of brutality and violence, the vast majority of the book traces the witness/suspect interrogation lines and a painfully slow amalgamation of puzzle pieces in an effort to solve the crimes. And, not to counteract the lack of suspense, even the climax fails to thrill.
    Sandford laid his claim to fiction with the first few PREY novels; Spillaneish in their simplicity and Parkerish in their character builds. Davenport was a tough, no-nonsense cop who would tread on the imaginary line in the sand to catch the bad guy; almost no cost too great. Well, we now have a more retiring figure to deal with in Davenport. And, while this too can produce good storylines, it is something PREY fans will have to adjust to: not an easy transition, to be sure.

    5.0 von 5 Sternen Even humor dots this Lucas Davenport "spy" thriller 16. Mai 2004
    Von Jerry Bull - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
    We're admittedly big Sandford fans, having enjoyed the entire preceeding set of "Prey" adventures (and his "Kidd" books as well) starring Lucas Davenport. Promoted to a position where he works on anything with political overtones at the behest of the Minnesota governor (no, not that one!), Lucas is soon embroiled with the murder of a Russian stranger down at the docks, and in escorting Nadya, an "investigator" (read, spy) sent over from Russia to look into the matter. Her presence adds both a great deal of suspense to the story, as we're never quite sure whether she's "legit" or not, as well as many funny lines as she puzzles over American colloquialisms.
    We readers soon know the shooter is young Carl, grandson of Grandpa Walther, a communist spy who has been running a ring of families engaged in Russian "assistance" in northern Minnesota for some six decades!! A clever analyst and fearless assassin in his own right, he's teaching teenager Carl the tricks of the trade, including heartless executions. So while there's no doubt whodunit, not to mention some more murders along the way, the clues and hunches Lucas pursues to uncover the spy ring and the killer keep the novel moving at a fun pace. A slightly moralistic twist at the end even gives one pause for thought about truth and justice.
    It's surprising Sandford can keep these characters and stories fresh after some 16 or so in this series. While Lucas has settled down with wife Weather, and young son and adopted daughter (who got barely more than a mention), he is still a smart and clever fellow and one whose success we care about. We thought the humor generated by the consternation of the Russian lady over various comical English sayings (like how does a foreigner translate something like "keep in under your hat"!) was a light-hearted touch, breaking up the contrasting horror of the various slayings and suicide populating the plot. Lastly, a sub-plot involving a "bag lady" who witnesses the first crime, was so interesting, we wish it had been expanded upon even further.
    So kudos to Sandford on his latest "Prey" -- it's a book very well done and thus enjoyable entertainment!

    4.0 von 5 Sternen Great Series Continues: Hidden Prey By John Sandford 19. Mai 2004
    Von Kevin Tipple - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
    Picking up six months after "Naked Prey" the series continues with Lucas Davenport still with the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BAC). Officially, he runs the Office of Regional Research within the BAC. Unofficially, he is the Governor's man for sticky problems where the worlds of politics and crime intersect. The murder of a Russian on the shores of Lake Superior has fast become a political problem and Davenport's talents are needed.
    The dead man has finally been identified as Rodion Oleshev and he was shot three times-once in the heart and twice in the forehead. He died two weeks ago on a concrete slab next to a grain elevator on the shores of Lake Superior one night. The death of what apparently was at one time a KGB agent has become a major political problem. The dead man, not only was still a spy, but also was the son of a very high-ranking person in the Oil Ministry in Russia. The father has talked to Putin and the Russian Embassy has contacted the State Department. The ball has rolled downhill gathering steam and urgency and now Rose Marie Roux, Davenport's longtime boss, is handling the issue to Davenport. The Russians are sending someone to oversee the investigation and review it. Rose Marie wants Davenport to make sure that everything that could be done has been done and to make sure the Russian is happy. Send the Russian back home satisfied and make everyone look good, especially the BAC, because yet another budgetary cutback is in store for the new agency.
    Davenport begins to investigate while awaiting the arrival of the Russian by talking to the Feds. The FBI is running the investigation, not as a homicide but as an intelligence operation trying to uncover possible Russian deep cover assets in the area. They have virtually nothing after two weeks and ask Davenport to share whatever information he uncovers in the course of his homicide investigation and not to blow their case. That is, if they can ever develop anything. With no leads and no suspects, a somewhat bored Davenport is thrilled with the prospects whether he wants to publicly admit it or not.
    Despite political problems and other issues such as the real reasons the Russian has arrived, Davenport begins to make progress. Before long, Davenport is tearing up the countryside in search of suspects and John Sandford has this reader pulled deep into his view of the world once again. As in other novels of this series, almost everyone is back, a little older and a little wiser, and still very interested in getting all the bad guys no matter what. The case becomes more and more complex as secrets from before the cold war come to light.
    This is another very good read from John Sandford and well worth your time. Most of the books in this series can't be read as stand alones. However, with just a couple of minor references to earlier novels in the series, this one certainly could be read as a stand alone and would serve as an excellent introduction to a strong series well worth reading.

    1.0 von 5 Sternen The worst of the Prey novels 27. Mai 2004
    Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
    This is an extremely disappointing book. The plot is boring and slow because Davenport doesn't do much but go from one murder scene to the other. He is more a crime scene tourist than a detective. Nothing he does moves to solve the case. Nothing! A passive hero is a classic writing 101 mistake.
    The Russian intelligence officer is also a cliche. I suppose her "What is this ____? What is this ____?" is intended to be humorous but it gets old very fast.

    2.0 von 5 Sternen This series met its demise several books back 7. Juli 2005
    Von clifford - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
    I really enjoyed reading these Prey novels by Sanford early on in the series. But like any series of books that whips out one book after another without a major evolutionary shift in either plot structures or characters, these books eventually become silly caricatures of themselves. In one of the Sanford interviews that I read, he said that he is writing to make money. (Obviously I am paraphrasing here). I have nothing against that at all, most popular contemporary thriller/mystery writers follow a strict guide line and leave the reader with a sense of happy contentment. I think that when you find a good thriller, like one of the first Prey novels, it is because the author is introducing a new and unusual character to the reader. Now that Sanford is 15 or so Prey novels into his series, Davenport is familiar, and without new nuances... the story becomes drab because it is almost like the author is going through the motions.

    I think part of what made Hidden Prey grotesque in a way is that Sanford is really reaching here. His hidden communists are kind of laughable, and the whole story with the female KGB agent and the homeless lawyer lady are goofy. For me it wasn't even a pleasant way to spend a few hours in reading this book. It was more a painful reaction towards remembrances of a better past than a calm relaxation with a familiar other.

    Pass this book by. Try Denis Lehane's Boston PI series.
