Another great book in the Lucas Davenport Prey series. This one will not disappoint in any way. As usual the bad guys are really bad and in this case Lucas faces some really tough personal challenges as well. A great read!
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.

The 3rd in the Prey series featuring Lucas Davenport. A psychotic pathologist hopped up on multiple illegal drugs hires an actor to kill his wife, and in exchange he'll kill the theater director who dislikes the actor. That wasn't a spoiler, since as usual Sandford has the POV of both killers plus Lucas Davenport. Davenport is battling depression and PTSD from events in the last book, but this case is interesting enough to break him out of it. Lots of action, not too much focus on gore but a lot on the various drugs, and a couple twists at the end. No problems if a new reader wanted to start with this book, there's plenty of explanation without interrupting the action.
This was so good, I really enjoy Lucas Davenport. I have been reading these out of order which makes them a little confusing but I can't keep track of which is which. This is when we first meet Bekker the whacko pathologist who has issues with eyes.
