    " I love all the Prey books because Lucus Davenport is a Detective in Minneapolis which is my home town. "

    " My favorite of the Sandford books, as it has the best study of the friendship between Lucas and Del. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dale | 1/27/2014

    " A tale of revenge. The most interesting thing about this installment is Weather's development and her (and our) growing understanding of what Lucas is. But, it will take another book or two before I can get an idea as to whether Sandford is going to take advantage of the groundwork he lays in this one. Or will this turn out like a bad 80s sitcom - where everything is neatly resolved in one installment and there's no carry over for the characters (like when Alex gets addicted to speed in Family Ties, but after 22 minutes and a good long nap POOF no more addiction). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barbara | 1/16/2014

    " Love the whole series - but start with the first book ...Rules of Prey "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jon | 1/15/2014

    " Book 8 in the Lucas Davenport Prey series. This is a departure from the usual "identify the killer" aspect of the series. In this installment, an escaped convict is seeking revenge on Davenport and his team. Solid storytelling. Decent action. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jill | 1/13/2014

    " Don't know why, but I didn't like this one as much as the previous book, Mind Prey. I know I will finish the series, but I think the characters in this book reminded me of a previous prey book and I didn't really care for the bad guys. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tim Northburg | 1/13/2014

    " Wow. I can't believe he did it again. Another thrilling story to the very end. "
