John Sandford’s bestselling Lucas Davenport series continues with the fast-paced, compelling thriller Night Prey.
He was the best at what he did—a chameleon, invisible, uncatchable. For how could you catch an invisible man?
It was a very cold, very clear morning in the Carlos Avery game reserve—cold enough to preserve the body lying there, clear enough so the state investigator couldn’t miss it. There was something familiar about the stab wounds, she thought, but the Minneapolis police dismissed her theories, and the city’s new police chief has problems enough of her own. The cops are wary of her, the public thinks she’s too political, the feminists think she’s sold out … and this damn murder just won’t go away.
Caught in the middle, the chief turns to Lucas Davenport for help, and he reluctantly agrees. Still recovering from his near-fatal wounds of the year before, trying for once in his life to settle down with one woman, Lucas has his own concerns, but something about this murder, and another like it—the body found in a dumpster this time—teases him. The more he looks into the deaths, the more he’s sure the investigator is right. There is something disconcertingly familiar about the wounds in these two cases, and maybe in several others as well.
Somewhere out there lurks a killer of unusual skill and savagery—and if Lucas is right, he’s just getting warmed up.
