Usually when I find an author I like, especially a series of books, I stick with it until I have read them all. I found author John Sandford and was hooked.
Among other things he writes the “Prey” series. Mind Prey, Invisible Prey, Sudden Prey….you get the idea. After I had read two, I researched, on the internet, the whole series which currently stands at 19 books. I have read 17 and so far have been unable to locate the last two. Finding the books has been part of the fun.
They are crime/adventure stories that center around a protagonist who starts as a Police Detective. Later in his career he leaves the police department, but continues with other agencies. I am not usually a fan of police stories, however this writer is extremely accurate in his scenarios and parallels many of my experiences. Though I don’t realistically think anyone can get away with shooting as many villains as he has.
The author, whose real name is John Camp, seems to be quite an arrogant S.O.B. (Perhaps that is why I find him interesting). This is an excerpt from his website which is managed by his son.
Does John Sandford read any of the fan email?
Generally speaking, he does not. If a letter is particularly noteworthy, I may forward it to him. But other than that, he does not get any email, nor does he respond to any.
I have exchanged some emails with the son who is quite pleasant. Anyway, if you are looking for what I feel is some entertaining reading I would recommend this series.
Oh, if you run across a copy of Phantom Prey or Wicked Prey please let me know.
