    " Just can't stop reading this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daniel | 2/16/2014

    " Another fast paced book. I knew how this book would end pretty close to the beginning. I figured Lucas would approve "

    " The twelfth book in the excellent Prey series is a welcome change, since the last entry was a disappointment. Sandford has returned to his particular plot device of focusing on the villain, so although there is no mystery about whodunnit, the excitement comes from tracking Lucas Davenport and his team of Minneapolis cops as they stumble their way to the truth. A solid secondary character emerges, a deputy from a rural county with a strong stake in finding the serial killer. Davenport's personal life has improved a lot; he's back with Weather Karkinnen and they're now trying to get pregnant and working toward marriage, plans that had stalled several books ago. There's also a neat cameo by Kidd, the protagonist of a short series of crime novels by Sandford. Unlike the previous novel, the victims in this story are very likeable, which adds a lot of emotional depth. There is the usual cop humor, lots of dialogue, lots of driving around in the Porsche or the Tahoe...it's mostly background noise to the story, but pleasant. There is a bit more development of the crew, which I appreciate, since I read this series primarily to enjoy the growth of Davenport. A dozen novels ago, he was an over-the-top, Dirty Harry type, a womanizer who had killed five men in the line of duty and was considered a wild card. He's a lot more thoughtful by now and starting to consider things like enlarging his house for his future family. Marcy Sherrill, his former girlfriend who barely survived a shooting, has a new boyfriend; Del Capslock, the grungy undercover cop, is battling high cholesterol. It's really nice to see all the characters rounded out, sometimes in unexpected ways. The villain is a creepy psychopath, the kind that makes you think you know someone very much like him. Unlike several of the other books in the series, I wouldn't regard this as a stand-alone story. There's too much history in it; you would be best off by reading the series in order to get to this point. Enjoy! "

    " I've read every book John Sandford has written. I buy them in hard cover because once I know he has a new one out I cannot wait for the paperback. Davenport, Flowers and Kidd are some of the most memorable antagonists you'll ever meet. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 krin | 10/9/2012

    " I enjoyed this mystery/thriller featuring Lucas Davenport. One of my favorite scenes was when Davenport meets the computer genius Kidd for the first time. I look forward to reading the next book in the series, Mortal Prey. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ginny | 7/12/2012

    " Question in this book is how Lucas is going to identify the murderer, we know who it is. in this story Lucas seems to be skating on the edge of legality in getting the information he needs to get the culprit. Moves quickly and features, Marcy in a new role. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Luann | 3/2/2012

    " Another action packed, easy to read Davenport novel. I'm always amazed (and a little frighted) at the creativity of his characters. He always manages to come up with a new pyscho killer you never would have imagined exsisted. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue | 12/13/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paul Close | 5/13/2011
