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.”

    " This is the 4th of the Prey series, and Lucas travels to New York City to assist the NYPD in tacking down the slasher killer from Eyes of Prey after his escape from a supposedly secure facility. While he's in New York, he is drawn into tracking down a vigilante group of cops who are stretching the "law in their own hands" to a higher and more dangerous level. It is an excellent thriller, with humor and real life situations thrown into the mix. "

    " 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 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 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 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deborah Hamilton | 1/11/2014

    " In this follow up to Eyes of Prey Davenport is called up to New York to assist Lilly in locating the escaped convict Bekker. While in New York Davenport has a nagging feeling something isn't right. Although this book didn't keep me on the edge of my seat, like Eyes of Prey, I did enjoy the continuation of the characters and the plot was decent enough to hold my attention. I enjoyed the fact that the cat and mouse game was more in the background of the novel and that other issues made up the foreground. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennilyn Sichak | 1/9/2014

    " I just finished this one I had a hard time putting it down, there is one I should have read first though, I think it is eyes of prey. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Summi | 1/7/2014

    " My first book of the prey series...loved the characer of Lucas n the rest of the characters too....gud read... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Matt | 1/4/2014

    " This was a fast read and only a little fun. Lucas is in NYC to catch Bekker and to help the nypd find a vigilante. It is a little 'complicated' and the bad guys aren't very well fleshed out. At the end Lucas just sort of has to explain everything. Only so-so. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robert | 12/31/2013

    " Another good mystery with a great ending. Not quite as terrific as Eyes of Prey, but pleasantly surprising all the same. I'm getting to like Lucas. He's quite the complex guy. Onward and upward to the next case. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mtafc | 11/29/2013

    " Another good read in the Lucas Davenport series, but definitely not up to par with the other three I've read by John Sandford. Will be starting the next book in he series soon. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bnschmid | 9/26/2012

    " All of the prey books ruled!Every last one of them.If you like self-help,feel-good books,then go get yourself a low-fat double whipped espresso and go read Bambi,or some similarly distasteful non-violent drivel,and leave the good stuff for me to read! "

    " Continuing the pursuit of evil Bekker from Eyes of Prey. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dennis | 7/9/2012

    " I like John Sandford-s dialogue and his characters but his plots suck. Boring, boring, boring. His psychotic killers also leave a lot to be desired, like the same depth and complexity that he gives his cops. I could have liked this better but didn`t. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura | 6/15/2012

    " This one was back to my kind of book. In this one he travels to New York to catch the killer who got away. "

    " Ran just a little long and the layers upon layers of who the bad guys really were ran a bit too much, but I enjoyed it. "
