Eyes of Prey - Lucas Davenport, Bk 3

Two people swap murders. It should have proved untraceable, but one of the murderers is insane - he has killed before and is likely to kill again.  The death of the doctor's wife horrifies the Twin Cities, especially what the killer did to her eyes.

Lieutenant Davenport's sanity was nearly shatteredby two murder investigations. Now he faces something worse .... two killers. One hideously scarred. The other strikingly handsome, a mster manipulator fascinated with all aspects of death. The dark mirror of Davenport's soul .... this is the case that will bring Davenport back to life or push him over the edge. I have read most of the Prey books and I think this is one of the best ones if not the best I have read.

Eyes of Prey is the third in the Lucas Davenport series by John Sandford. In this edition, Lucas is still torn up by the ending of Shadow Prey which featured an attack in his home against himself, his lover and his child. He takes it out on a young thug by beating him senseless. Internal Affairs begins to investigate and Lucas is on a short leash as he begins to investigate the murder of Stephanie Becker.

As it is with many Prey books, we know who the killer is. Except in this case, there are two killers. Two evil men decided to try and idea they gleaned from a movie where they each take turns killing each other's problem person. Carlo Druze kills Becker's wife and Becker kills Druze's boss. There are problems however when their is a witness to Becker's wife's murder, an unknown lover.

Meanwhile, there are more killings. Becker is a pathologist at the university hospital and is constantly living in a drug induced stupor or euphoria. Druze is a scarred, damaged man easily pliable by Becker. The strength in Eyes of Prey lie in the tight police work and the characterization of the bad guys and of Lucas's decent into depression. The ending is also surprising, yet doesn't really give any clues into the forth book in the series (which retains some characters from this book).

As usual in the series, there is a lot of cussing and sleeping around. But Standford has crafted another great thriller that will keep me reading the entire series.

Another winner. It's a great presentation of Davenport's struggle out of depression and while the killer and reasons are known throughout the book, the last page came as a shock to me!

I really enjoy the Prey series. I giggle at how big of a douchebag our hero can be, but hey, this book was set in the 80's and it's fair to look back and laugh right? Beyond the neon warm-ups and retro soundtrack, this book is a real page turner. Great bad guys with non-stop creepiness. Highy recommended for the rogue cop vs. serial killer fan.

Loved it!! I also like the J.D. Robb books, and this kind of reminds me of them.
