Eyes of Prey is acutally the third book in the series and catches up with Davenport as he is chasing a killer that has a nasty habit of taking the eyes from his victims. The pace of the book is fast, and the plot is peppered with so many twists and turns that you will be unable to stop reading--I read the book in two days. Davenport is the type of character that keeps you wanting more as you finger each page, anticipating the next exciting plot-twist.
I would recommend that you pick up all of the prey books, but start at the beginning--I unfortunatley did not. 14 in all and here are the books in order:

EYES OF PREY
NAKED PREY--just released this year!!!
Sandford shows his ability to take the reader into the depths of madness and to surprise the reader with his deftness to tie together all the loose ends. It is such a pleasure to read a book that you are fully satisfied with and still be surprised at where the author takes you with the ending. This book is highly recommended, both for newer readers and for those who've read the earlier "Prey" novels years ago but may have forgotten how good they really are.
John Sanford poured so much detail in to his characters. The killers (notice the plural) in this novel keep Davenport reeling with questions to the end, which is also a terrific surprise.
If you're a new reader of John Sandford, go back and start with this book before reading the newer "Prey" books. It will help you to understand Lucas Davenport better as well as his police pals.
The first murder takes place early in the story with Bekker's wife brutally killed at her home by a man in Bekker's pay. Bekker immediately becomes Davenport's number one suspect through a raft of circumstantial evidence. Even though he was on the other side of the country at the time of the murder his complicity in arranging the murder is quite clear. The usual chain of murders is set in place and cleverly Bekker organizes them to happen whilst he is under Police surveillance or escapes such surveillance briefly in order to perpetrate the crimes. Bekker and Davenport, astonishingly, establish a relationship with each other during the course of the murder investigations, popping in for a drink and a chat with each other!
The suspense doesn't build too well in the story as the plot is developed through the persons of both of its main characters. The story line is weak and not convincing. In reality the police would have arrested Bekker on suspicion of complicity early on in their investigations in order to prevent him committing more murders. Whilst this is a work of is fiction, a little credulity would have helped.Read more ›

Another great read by Sandford. I haven't found one of his books yet that I didn't like. He is a superb writer. I will be reading more of his novels.Published 1 month ago by Tim Shepperson
