Since John Sandford first captured the attention of millions of readers with his 1989 debut, Rules of Prey, he has written eight books in the bestselling Prey series, featuring Minneapolis cop Lucas Davenport. With each novel in the series, Sandford has proven himself a master of suspense, and his ability to combine rich human drama with edge-of-the-seat suspense has earned him widespread critical acclaim and an ever-growing audience.
Now Sandford presents his fans with a remarkable new heroine in an extraordinary new thriller, The Night Crew. A departure from the Prey series, The Night Crew boasts a whole new cast of characters and a brand-new level of suspense.
Anna Batory runs the night crew. Small, dark-haired, shy but tough, a Wisconsin farm girl on the streets of Los Angeles, she roams the city with her small band of video freelancers in their truck from ten to dawn, looking for news accidents, robberies, murders, demonstrations anything they can shoot and sell to the local stations or the networks. It's an exhilarating life...until two deaths hit Anna close to home.
One night, when Anna's crew is filming a suicide jumper who falls five stories to his death, Jason, her fill-in cameraman, is strangely affected. The next morning, Jason is found murdered on a beach. At first the police think that the deaths are unrelated, but too many coincidences and clues keep linking the deaths and leading back to Anna, revealing the dark truth of an obsessed madman. Through a series of bizarre and harrowing events, ghostsofAnna's past are stirred up and revealed to be intrinsically linked to the lives of Jason and the suicide jumper. Anna's world becomes as cold and dangerous as the night itself.
John Sandford has written thrilling stories before, but nothing to top the extraordinary suspense and tension of The Night Crew. It is an intense ride, and it is Sandford's most chilling novel yet.
