‘Gathering Prey‘ by John Sandford. Recommended by David (Staffing & Customer Support Officer)
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 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, little does he know in the days to come, he will embark upon an odyssey through a subculture unlike any he has ever seen
