The Prey novels by Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist John Sandford consistently make the bestseller lists, but they are not for the faint of heart. Featuring Minneapolis lieutenant Lucas Davenport, these thrillers are raw, graphic, and impossible to put down. In Eyes of Prey, a depressed and unfocused Davenport takes on a macabre case, tracking down a serial killer who maims the eyes of his victims after he has murdered them.

The death of the doctor’s wife horrifies the Twin Cities, especially what the killer did to her eyes. A report comes in of a troll-like man near the murder scene, his face a patchwork of scars, but that bizarre clue is all Lieutenant Lucas Davenport has to go on as he attempts to sort out the murder. Still trying to recover from a pair of particularly brutal cases, bone-weary, his nerves fraying, Davenport isn’t sure he’s up to it—until it happens again, the same savagery, the same mutilation of the eyes, and he realizes he has no choice.

Little by little, Davenport is drawn into the web of a man of extraordinary intelligence and evil, a master manipulator fascinated with all aspects of death: the dark mirror of Davenport’s own soul. As the hunt winds through darker and ever more frightening events, Davenport knows there is no turning back. This is the case that will lift him back to life—or push him irrevocably over the edge.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 lovesagood story | 5/3/2016

    " Eyes is the third book in a series about a cop in the northern mid-west of the US. Although most of the story lines begin in and around the Minneapolis-St Paul area of Minnesota, this policeman and colleagues travel all over the surrounding area. Over the years I have become a huge fan of this series due primarily to the development of the main character, Lucas Davenport. At this stage he is still young, street smart and in some cases, dangerous to those he hunts for justice. Eyes is a thrilling story of Lucas"s hunt for a serial killer before he kills again. "

    " The creepiest of all the prey books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tom | 2/4/2014

    " After awhile, most police/crime thrillers start to seem to be quite similar. There's no doubt that John Sandford is a talented writer and among the best in his genre. This one was enjoyable and entertaining, but there was nothing that caused it to stand out. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tom Landry | 2/3/2014

    " This is my third Lucas Davenport book. I was a little worried because I really enjoyed the first one but got a little bored with the second one. I am happy to say that I enjoyed this one just as much as the first one. It is a good crime story which sucked me in from the start. I had a hard time putting it down because I wanted to know what was coming next. I recommend this book to anyone interested in crime stories. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ralph Waddell | 2/1/2014

    " Excellent read. His first three Lucas Davenport books have gotten progressively better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tami Miller | 1/28/2014

    " Glad I stuck with this series. I didn't care for #2. Book #3 was awesome and I can't wait to read #4. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ally Cat | 1/25/2014

    " Sanford is always a good read, but I wasn't sure I was going to like this one as much as the previous in the series. Boy was that wrong, I loved it. We got a more intimate look at Lucas and the twists and turns were terrific. The ending, wow, didn't see that coming. Can't wait to continue the journey. "

    " This is the 3rd Lucas Davenport book I've read, and somehow it was really hard to get into. It was good in the end, and had a nice semi-twist, but was very dark overall compared to the first 2 books in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marylu Sanok | 12/20/2013

    " A series of books with good characters and good plots. The "hero" is not always the good guy and yet you still root for him "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matt | 12/19/2013

    " This is the third Lucas Davenport mystery. I am getting to like him as a character. He is a little edgy, motivated, and 'grey.' he is good and bad and tries to be righteous. The bad guy in this one is bad, but kind of fake too. A fun and good but not great read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Erin | 12/4/2013

    " I've read pretty much all of John Sanfords crime stories. I like them because they're a fast read and they are set in the Twin Cities. They are dramatic and entertaining. "

    " Michael Becker is one of the coolest villains I've found in fiction. His compulsions to kill and destroy the eyes of his victims, otherwise they haunt his dreams. Too cool! "
