Lucas Davenport tracks a prolific serial killer in this nail-biting #1 New York Times-bestseller from John Sandford. Clayton Deese looks like a small-time criminal, muscle for hire when his loan shark boss needs to teach someone a lesson. Now, seven months after a job that went south and landed him in jail, Deese has skipped out on bail, and the U.S. Marshals come looking for him. They don't much care about a low-level guy--it's his boss they want--but Deese might be their best chance to bring down the whole operation. Then, they step onto a dirt trail behind Deese's rural Louisiana cabin and find a jungle full of graves. Now Lucas Davenport is on the trail of a serial killer who has been operating for years without notice. His quarry is ruthless, and--as Davenport will come to find--full of surprises . . .… (lisätietoja)

Terrific read! From the swamp of Louisiana to Las Vegas strip, Lucas Davenport was on the hunt for a hit man who didn't let good meat go to waste.
The only reason it's not a 5 star is because he didn't beat his previous book goodness: [b:Twisted Prey|36140457|Twisted Prey (Lucas Davenport, #28)|John Sandford|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1503946825s/36140457.jpg|57741503] which I love. Read it if you like crime novels! ( )

I remember the first Lucas Davenport book I bought at the Crown Book store just down the street from me when I first lived in Chicago. Was just starting to get into mysteries when I found Silent Prey in the discounted books section. It was still relative new as Crown moved them quickly. What intrigued me was the author was from Minnesota writing about a Twin Cities police officer - and I had just started to handle Minnesota accounts. What random things start a great relationship. Lucas Davenport and I kind of grew up together and now I am old and Lucas is starting to show his age.

Sorry for the BS but when I read this book it underscored how John Sandford has grown and matured his prized character, Lucas Davenport. No longer is he the brash tough guy with a brain who lives kind of on the edge whose life is sometimes all over the place. He has gone through life working for the State Police, Special police assignments, a stretch with the FBI and is now working special cases with the US Marshall services. He has settled down with a very understanding wife and a step daughter he saved during one of this Minnesota cases. His thinking is more rational but still runs on the edge and, I have to believe, he is an adrenaline junky. Through the years and through the novels we have a character that has truly evolved matured and changed. A significant amount of credit has to go to John Sandford for being able to accomplish this without loosing the underlying tense stories that drive a Lucas Davenport book

The writing is still great and, one thing about this series once it got going, the character development is great. Even the minor fringe characters are adequately fleshed out so that there is a realism to them, you kind of miss that this is done generally in only a couple of sentences or paragraphs. In one respect the story lines are formulaic BUT when you get down to it most crime/police/detective stories fallow a simple basic formula and need to do so to tell the story effectively. What makes a difference there is a very base realism in every story. You can feel with the characters even the those in the periphery of the story. These are gritty stories with gritty characters. Generally the dialogue is straight to the point and, again, brings a sense of reality to the story and writing.

I guess what really got me in this book is how Lucas is the same yet he has evolved changed and matured. Even he understands he is not the man he used to be and has become comfortable with himself. In some respects this has less action than many of the other stories but the writing is more intense and the situations more complicated yet the still boil down to really dangerous bad guys that ain't going to come easy. And Lucas Davenport is the man who is going to make certain the pay for their transgressions.

Yes I really enjoy this book. It was a little different than many of the previous one but both John Sandford and his character, Lucas Davenport, have grown and matured. It pleases me to see this in a noticeable manner since it take an exceptional writer to smoothly achieve this over the years.

You need to read all of the Prey series as, to me, it is one of the best crime series, ( )

I read this book based on the recommendation of a friend, and my conclusion was this was not one of John Sandford's best books. The writing is very disjointed and focuses mainly on fighting and chase scenes. There is not much character development or plot. The book opens with one of the character being described as smelling like ferret feces. This was not a book that I enjoyed reading, but I will try some of the author's other books before I give up on him. ( )
