Golden Prey

Golden Prey - John Sandford

Every time I think of this book I think of Golden Eye and the Tina Turner song. So that's now in my head now and I hope it's in your heads as well LOL.

 

"Golden Prey" now follows Lucas as a U.S. Marshal. After the events in the last book, the presidential candidate and several congressmen and the governor of Minnesota owe him. So he gets a job where he gets to hunt. Lucas is bored though. There are cliques within the marshal service and a lot of people don't like him. Lucas gets an interesting case to work though, one no one else wants to deal with. A fugitive who is on the most wanted list (Garvin Poole) robs a cartel (why dude why?) and kills the people at the heist along with a child. Lucas wants to track him and his companions done. The book follows Lucas through Mississippi and several other states. Garven doesn't realize it though, besides Lucas, he also has two stone cold killers from the cartel out to hurt anyone he is related to and knows in order to get the money back. 

 

So this book at times felt a little weird to me. We don't have Del or anyone else that Lucas has worked with. Instead we have him having to rely on all new people. He ends up with two new side-kicks though, Bob and Rae. The book got much snappier when the three of them were around each other. 

 

The book jumps around though and we get Garv's POV along with the two killers who are hunting him. I felt a bit bored reading about Garv and others though. They are all killers and we get to see why they make the choices they do, but I was happier just staying with Lucas and new friends.

 

The setting of the book moves several times. I can't even recall how many states they were in and out of. After a while I just went with it. 

 

The ending was freaking hilarious though with the bad guy and bad guy dust-up with Lucas's supposed supervisor and a shovel.
