With each new book, John Sandford's Lucas Davenport novels grow deeper, richer, more suspenseful, and their audience grows even larger. The best, however, is yet to come.When Davenport is called to the white-stuccoed house, after the party, he knows it's for no usual case. For one thing, the strangulation victim is Alie'e Maison, she of the knife-edge cheekbones and jade-green eyes: as models go, one of the biggest. For another, there are a few small complications. Such as the drugs in her body and the evidence that she had recently made love to a woman. Such as the fact that one of Lucas's own men had been at the party, and is now a suspect. Such as the little surprise they are all about to find when they search the house: a second body, stuffed in a closet, with a deep dent in its skull.The whole case is going to be like this, Lucas knows--secrets piled upon secrets, the ground shifting constantly under his feet. But even he cannot suspect the earth tremors he is about to feel, when an old lover comes back into his life, a married woman now...whose own secrets may turn out to be the most dangerous ones of all.Filled with brilliant characters and exceptional drama, this is Sandford's most suspenseful novel yet.

I've been rereading this series which I began reading in the 90's . This one is the most disappointing so far with a plot that is implusable at best and tedious at worst. I had to read the first chapter twice and I thought that was a bad sign but the ending was nothing short of ludicrous. I hope the next one is better.

I love this series and have read 18 of the 22 books, so I have a good feel for the Prey Series. I found this book tedious, probably in part because it's more of a who-dun-it than a study of an unusual cop and the crazy he's trying to apprehend (or kill, as the case may be). I was bored enough that I skim read part of the book, which I had not done with any of the others.

Entertaining as usual, although I must say I sensed a bit more humour than in most of the previous books in the series. I didn't like the ending much, since I'm not a fan of the "solve the mystery in the last 10 pages" plot. Still, overall, a fun and fast read
