Very enjoyable. It's interesting to watch the killer's grip on reality slip away.

I kinda started in the middle of Sandford's Prey series, but now I'm filling in where I skipped and it doesn't make a whole lot of difference, but it's much better to read them in order because there are always mentions in the books of what happened in a previous book.

Now, to this book..It's great, just like all of the rest of them! Lucas Davenport (for some reason I always picture Harrison Ford but he's described totally different), is assigned a serial murder case involving women being ripped apart (ugh!) and is saddled with a wimpy detective that nobody else wants and an overbearing female detective that no one else can stand to be around.

Even with these terrible odds, the three of them manage to come up with some interesting clues and follow them to the conclusion, which is pretty amazing!

From the dust jacket: "It was a very cold, very clear morning in the Carlos Avery game reserve-cold enough to preserve the body lying there, clear enough so the state investigator couldn't miss it. There was something familiar about the stab wounds, she thought-but the Minneapolis police dismissed her theories, and the city's new police chief has problems enough of her own. The cops are wary of her, the public thinks she's too political, the feminists think she's sold out. And this damn murder just won't go away.
Caught in the middle, the chief turns to Lucas Davenport for help, and reluctantly, he agrees. Still recovering from his near-fatal wounds of the year before, trying for once in his life to settle down with one woman, Lucas has his own concerns, but someting about this murder, and another like it-the body found in a dumpster this time-teases him, and the more he looks into them, the more he's sure the investigator is right. There is something disconcertingly familiar about the wounds not only in these two cases, but just maybe in several others as well. Somewhere out there lurks a killer of unusual skill and savagery. And if Lucas is right, he's just getting warmed up..."

I found this to be my least favorite of the Prey series so far. The serial killer has done most of his work beforehand, there is very little detective work involved, and a very predictable and overdone character. Not a bad read, just disappointing.

Although I've read all the Prey books before, I'm working my way through them in order this time. They are fast and easy to read, and pretty forgettable so almost like reading them new. As in every Prey book, there are multiple murders and you get the POV of the killer(s) along with Davenport. I liked the character of the BCA agent although the end of that story was very predictable. Sandford is turning Davenport into a likable human being instead of mostly a jerk. These are nice escapist reading; Sandford kills off a lot of people but doesn't focus too much on gory details.
