This is #8 in the series and I've read them in order. This was very good, but not on the same level as the others. The plot here is excellent and Sandford does his usual job of developing strong characters - both the villains in this book and the main characters who we see from one novel to the next. By now we're really starting to understand Lucas Davenport, the variety of cops surrounding him, and his girlfriend Weather. As good as all of this is, the story itself started to go from break neck pace to a slow plodding for just a little while. It then jumped back to fast action, making the story seem choppy at times. Overall, though, still a great read and definitely should not be missed if you are enjoying all of the other Davenport books.

You really can't beat John Sandford for wonderful entertainment reading. It's hard to put his books down.

Oh man this could have been great, as a matter of fact the book started out fast paced and thrilling but then it died a slow death as I turned each page. The characters were a bit to over the top and how Weather reacted near the end was a total destruction of this book. The end of this book was hard to get through. There was nothing exciting about it at all. I once read a book that had the last 19 pages missing, completely missing, its ending was better than this completed book. Sad, just sad. I am not sure if it was Weathers super woman ideation or if I was just ready for it to be over with. I give it a two. The rest of his books I have read have all scored 4-5 from me so far but J.Sandford in my opinion is a very non descript author. Its all left up to your imagination, nothing is procedural at all. No crime scene info, ballistics - Nothing! Of course this is his intention but its a bit boring reading stories that are all about who did it, lets go get em and thats it. Nothing but filler in between.

I've been reading the Lucas Davenport novels in order and I love them. However, this one had trouble holding my interest. There were a few too many characters and side kicks, and most of them weren't developed. I still don't feel like I know why all these villans were working together and why the betrayer turned against Lucas and the others. Hopefully the next installment will come closer to my very high expectations.

After reading several chapters, I just gave up. I found the numerous characters very flat and lifeless. There were far too many characters thrown at the reader at once and after developing a tension headache trying to keep them all straight, I put the book down for good.

What can I say except, John Sanford is a master at telling a story. The characters are so real. They are no longer fictional but real life people. This is my second 'Prey' novel and I can't wait to start on my third. It's impossible to put this book down. My heart was pounding with each turn of the page. The action just never stopped. Lucas Davenport, is the tough, rugged, sexy hero. This is a definate must read!! Loved it, loved it, loved it!
