About this title

Synopsis:

In the wake of a series of killings that disturbingly emulates the works of a trio of inmates currently being held at the Minnesota Security Hospital, Lucas Davenport investigates a missing man who was released from the hospital weeks earlier. By the author of Hidden Prey. Lit Guild Main. BOMC Main. Doubleday Main. Mystery Guild Main.

Review:

John Sandford delivers yet another blistering tale from the life of Lucas Davenport, surely one of the most attractive cops on the crime-fiction beat today The plot is complex and full of red herrings. The Associated Press
Sandford ratchets up the tension and suspense in tough, spare prose that shows us rather than tells us what is going on Broken Prey more than lives up to its predecessors in what has become a bestselling franchise in the mystery/thriller genre. Minneapolis Star Tribune
Nonstop tension. Publishers Weekly (starred review)
The plotline twists (just when you think you have everything figured out, you don t) will surprise even the most jaded reader of thrillers Broken Prey is taut and tangy. A reader who expects to read half one night and half the next may find his or her light on well into the small hours, unable to stop till the final page. That s Sandford s trademark, and a fine one at that. Richmond Times-Dispatch
Sandford is probably the best thriller writer working today, and his Prey series is proof. In this one, Lucas Davenport tracks a particularly disturbing serial killer. San Antonio Express-News
A real whodunit it contains supersized servings of all the elements readers have come to treasure in the series: Davenport s quirky, self-deprecating, and ironic worldview; plenty of graveyard humor; and a dynamic sense of place, from the Minnesota countryside to the foreboding gothic architecture of the asylum." Booklist (starred review)
A tale so fast-moving you won t even notice the unobtrusively expert detective work till the second time around. Kirkus Reviews
