John Sandford’s acclaimed Prey novels featuring the brilliant Lucas Davenport have plunged millions of readers into the darkest recesses of the criminal mind. Now Lucas has met his match. His newest nemesis is more intelligent and more deadly than any he has tracked before: a kidnapper, a violator, and a cruel, wanton killer who knows more about mind games than Lucas himself.
“Run for it.”
It was raining when psychiatrist Andi Manette left the parent-teacher conference with her two young daughters, and she was distracted.
