Format: Mass Market Paperback
I read numerous books and, up until now, haven't read any of the prey series. I was suspect at first, since I'm in academics, I thought this series might be poorly written--as are some popular novels that seem to fly off the book shelves. Having been skeptical at first, I was floored by Sandford's writing and ability to place you right beside Lucas Davenport, and watch the fast-paced plot unravel. Lucas is a self-destructive character that seems to come out smelling like a rose by the end of the book. As of now there are 14 Prey novels, and I have purchased all of them--after reading Eyes of Prey, of course.
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:
RULES OF PREY
SHADOW PREY
EYES OF PREY
SILENT PREY
WINTER PREY
NIGHT PREY
MIND PREY
SUDDEN PREY
SECRET PREY
CERTAIN PREY
EASY PREY
CHOSEN PREY
MORTAL PREY
NAKED PREY--just released this year!!!

Lucas Davenport,Sandford's unforgettable cop hero (think Dirty Harry with more intelligence) match wits with two psychopaths:one is a disfigured actor and another is handsome but twisted doctor and manipulator who has a obession with all matters of death and murder.Dr. Michael Bekker is one most sinister villians that has ever been created and this novel has nonstop action and chills!

This is an early "Prey" novel when Lucas Davenport was working as a detective with the Minneapolis Police Dep't. He is troubled by a failing relationship while attempting to solve the murder of a physician's wife. He suspects the doctor is involved despite an ironclad alibi, and clues from a possible witness who may have been with the victim prior to her brutal death which included the removal of her eyes.
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.

I have no idea how I missed this Sandford fiction in his "Prey" series, but I did. It's definitely one of the first with Lucas Davenport. It's an absolute jewel right down to the last sentence. I actually enjoyed it more than the newer "Prey" books.
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.

Eyes of Prey is the first John Sanford book I have read. Now I can't resist reading his work. Sanford is a sound writer and he does a good job of showing details. In addition to being very interesting, this book is easy to read and is even easier to get into. Lucas Davenport is an awesome character. He is everything a hero could want to be. He is slick, sneaky, and gets the job done. Michael Bekker is a very fitting person for the job of a serial killer. Until the end of the book I thought he might even get away with the killings. Druze fits in almost as well as Bekker in that his facial features allow him to kill someone without being bothered. Bekker's beauty and Druze's childhood make them excessively dangerous and are definately two people that I would not want to meet up with. Druze and Bekker are a dynamic team and if it were not for Bekker's stupidity, they may have actually gotten away with the murders. Great book Mr. Sandford! I hope you can continue your success!

I enjoyed Eyes of Prey mainly because of the wonderful villain. Sanford has invented an amazing character in Dr. Bekker. The other characters pale by comparison, and I only wish that the author had delved deeper into Bekker's motivations and background. I also read Silent Prey, in which the story of Bekker is continued; still not enough Bekker! If you are tired of one-dimensional "bad guys," these two books will be a treat.

I am an ardent John Sandford fan. I recently purchased and read the complete Prey series and then the complete Flowers series in order, and I'm only sorry I'll have to wait for the next book in both series. Sandford is a novelist with the rare ability to carry over characters and plot elements with complete believabiity while allowing both to develop in interesting, unexpected but natural ways - the only other "serial" novelist who does this nearly as well is Anthony Trollope, and he avoids murders. I re-read these books with pleasure as great or greater than the first reading because the fast-paced narrative and unexpected plot developments pulls you to read fast the first time; the second or third you can pay attention to atmosphere (he's great on significant landscape detail), character growth, and situation development. Sandford writes like a real novelist, not like someone trying to impress academia with his literary exclusivity.
