This is the first book I have read by John Sanford, but I enjoyed it so much I will be looking for other books by him. He is a very clever writer. The book is about a gruesome serial killer. The initial suspect is a recently released inmate of a prison hospital. We get to visit the prison hospital and meet some of the scary and strange characters there. The story itself is very suspensful with a surprise ending - I love those.
John Sandford has one of the best ever crime fiction series going with his "Prey" novels. "Broken Prey," the 16th and most recent story in the series is, arguably, his best effort yet. Sandford's knack for using detail and sense of place to transport the reader out of their armchair and into an alternate world is supberb and it truly excels in this story. His characters are alive from first introduction, whatever scene he sets is right there for the reader, his plotting is perfect yet invisible...on and on. Add to that an incredibly well written climax--an action scene that ranks as the best I've ever read--and you have, with Broken Prey, John Sandford at the pinnacle of his game.
This one was hard to put down once the chase was on! Lucas Davenport comes thorugh again in a page turner which has some surprises along the way.
My first experience with this author/series. Great twisted-serial- killer-hunter fun. Already bought another book in the series and will be looking for others.
Lucas Davenport Prey Series. Lucas Davenport confronts a living nightmare, in one of the spookiest Prey novels yet.
