Started a bit slow for me. I almost put it down but the crime story intrigued me so I hung in there. Once I got past all the police politics surrounding a big case that involves big names and rich people, the story got much better. In fact once I was past the politics I couldn't put it down! The story was great and had a few twist and turns to keep me on my seat. Also being a gamer I loved the D&D references in it.
John Sandford's acclaimed PREY novels have plunged teaders into the darkest recesses of the criminal mind. Now his brilliant dective, Lucas Davenport, knows he has met match. For his newest nemesis is more intelligent-more deadly-then he has tracked before. A kidnapper, a violator, a pure, wanton killer who knows more about mind games than Lucas himself.-+
Not the strongest one, but a good solid Prey book, funny and suspenseful. So far, the only one made into a movie which I thought odd given the extra level of violence. There also seemed to be much more focus on the antagonist in this one than Lucas or the other police.
He knows Lucas Davenport's mind. His every move. His every weakness...
John Sandford's acclaimed Prey novels have plunged readers into the darkest recesses of the criminal mind. Now his brilliant detective, Lucas Davenport, knows he has met his match. For his newest nemesis is more intelligent-and more deadly-than any he has tracked before. A kidnapper. A violator. A pure, wanton killer who knows more about mind games than Lucas himself.
A Lucas Davenport novel. Lucas goes after a mental patient who has kidnapped a mother and 2 daughters. As it says on the cover, "Grip you by the throat thrills, a hell of a ride." Parts of it are intense and you don't want to put it down.
