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. Download and start listening now!
