Could Lucas Davenport be stymied, trapped at last? It's a hot summer night, muggy with the threat of a storm, when two men known only as Big and Little gain entry to a Minneapolis mansion inhabited by two elderly women. They're savage in their assault, not only killing but further venting psychotic rage by beating a lifeless body. We read: 'In a second, in three long steps, he was on her again, beating the dead woman with the pipe, heavy impacts shaking the floor.' It seems that this is one crime that may stump Lucas Davenport, but wait. Our relentless investigator has another case on his agenda - a high ranking politician with a penchant for pretty very young things has been accused of satisfying his debauched desires with a teenager. Surely one case has nothing to with the other. It's amazing how Sandford has continued to maintain his high standard with this his 17th Prey novel, yet he has produced another winner. Don't miss it! - Gail Cooke

This was an interesting read, but not page-turner suspense for me. I felt that I was being educated about art history & the business of art more than entertained or swept along w/the unfolding story ... & the end-game plot twist was so much more predictable than most J.S. efforts. I liked it, but I was ready for it to be over so I could move on in the series.

    HAMBONE

    First time I have read this author....lt will be the last if the next one is like this with never ending dirty language. The story was good but keepng track of the characters was very difficult. Why authors fail to put a glossary at the start so readers know relatioships to help readers has always baffled me.

    OK but a little typical

    Not my favorite and I am a big fan. I think the subject matter just didn't call to me. I'll try his next one, though!

    A bit boring

    I bit boring and far fetched. Sure its about imagination but seriously, this was boring. I love most if not all of the prey books. He is a masterful writer but I really wasnt even sure if the same guy wrote this book. I think the Davenport character is such a good one. He is a tough guy that I have come to look forward to read about. The other characters in this book were a bit beyond the ability for me to enjoy. A pair of nitwit artsy folk who kill on a whim and go on with there day like nothing happened. Its just to much. Once I got past that (wasnt hard, its just a small gripe) then I had to deal with the boring story line. There was just nothing to keep me hooked in this one. While most of the books I have read from Sandford are pretty straight forward and not all full of twists this one just had nothing. There was no twist. Folks killed, they found out who did it and it was done. No thanks, but since I like the series I read it and will read the next one. Hopefully they will get a bit more complicated or at least have a twist or two in the book

    Lucas is getting older!

    A good read but nothing great! Seems to me that John Sanford is stretching for new plots! I'll wait for Phantom Prey to go Paperback before removing him from my 'must read' list. Wonder when he's doing another 'Kidd' novel? Stuart

    Who wrote the dialogue?

    I was really looking forward to this book, but I was disappointed. I have read the entire Prey series at least twice and and the dialogue is this one just didn't 'feel' right. The 'smart ass' remarks were different than their usual 'smart ass' remarks. It just didn't feel like 'Lucas and the gang' to me. It seemed to me that many of his old partners just had their names dropped in for no real reason. The story is ok, but I was left wondering who finished writing the book.

    more action needed

    the best 'prey' books featured davenport being more actively involved in the chase. in this book, he seems to delegate too much, and the book bogs down. lucas needs to get back on the streets!
