I normally don't read these type of books, but it was given to me so I tried it. It is about a serial killer. I thought it was pretty good. Easy to read mostly. It was an interesting side to police work. If you like an edge of your seat book, this one is for you.

The 12th in the "Prey" series. This one's one of the best! Even though you know from the start who the killer is, you're on the edge of your seat to the very end. And the end is SO good. I like John Sandford's books, and I love his handling of police procedures. I also like that you can start anywhere in the series and not feel that you've missed a whole lot by not having read the previous books. Try it, you'll love it!

I'm quite torn about this book. On one side, I liked the crime, how it was solved, and, for the most part, the characters and their development. However, the real problem I have is when Lucas Davenport is talking to a couple of colleagues and he describes a dancer at a nudie bar as, "...I bet she went 180 and she was not a tall girl" and "You not only could get a hold on this one [the dancer], you could hardly avoid her." Finally, he says, "...hanging out in a combination bait shop-nudie bar looking at fat women dance..." really upset me. Why John Sandford feels weight-bashing women is acceptable is beyond me. He definitely does not say anything derogatory about thin/skinny women in this book. It's time he wakes up, stop being prejudiced, and realize that bashing larger people is just as wrong and discriminatory as bashing a person's race, gender, sexuality, religion, etc. As such, I will never read another John Sandford novel, nor will I be silent about this issue if/when speaking with another reader about this author. Again, Mr. Sandford, wake up, man up, and stop your weight-based discrimination. It's NOT acceptable anymore.

It kept me interested and was a distraction from the cold winter.
