Bekker’s ruined face twisted. “You should have…”
“What?” Lucas demanded.
“…killed me,” Bekker said. “Fool.”

He was right. His guards slain, the brilliant, insane pathologist of Eyes of Prey flees to New York to continue his research into aspects of death. Carefully, he conducts his experiments, searching the eyes of his dying victims for what they can reveal, the mounting body count causing an uproar in the city.

In desperation, the police reach out for the man who knew Bekker best, but when Lucas Davenport arrives, he finds unexpected danger as well. Lily Rothenburg, the policewoman whose intense affair with Lucas has never completely faded, is there too. Now, consumed with her own investigation of a group of rogue killers within the police department, she draws Lucas into her orbit again, until their hunts merge, their twin obsessions driving them ever closer to the edge … and then over.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Sleek and nasty…the pages turn quickly.”

    St. Paul Pioneer Press

  • “As the momentum gathers, readers will speed through the surprise twists and confrontations of the last chapters…The story never drags and Sandford delivers his usual punch.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • Silent Prey terrifies almost as a matter of course. Sandford is a blunt, effective, nuts-and-bolts kind of writer, and Bekker is pretty much everything fictional terror should embody…There are some genuinely chilling moments here, just right for fans of The Silence of the Lambs.”


  • A New York Times Bestseller

    " Hmmm...sequel to Eyes of Prey. I'm glad they finally got him!! (I don't really think this is giving anything away by saying that...) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Review by Len | 2/18/2014

    " This is the first book that I have read in the Lucas Davenport series. Very graphic in the victim descriptions. Dr. Bekker, Davenport's nemesis, is a very sick pathologist. Dialogue, used by both the detectives and the criminal element, can be strong at times, characteristic of the world in which these people operate. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Review by Lynne Williams | 2/9/2014

    " Mr. Sandford's books can be interesting and he tosses in a joke here or there. Sadly, every book reveals the criminal rather early. It's rarely a 'who-did-it?' Lucas Davenport is getting rather old and drinks horrible beer. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Review by Brent | 2/8/2014

    " The suspense was thrilling until the very end. Character development and scenery details were descriptive but not obtrusive. It was the right amount to paint the scene, but keep the action moving. I was so riveted, I almost completed the book in an evening and it doessn't look like the book has ever been opened. "
