If you sat at your Mac trying to write a novel, what names might you give your characters? If you sat there too long, you might name one "Del", and add "Capslock" as a surname. This is perhaps what Sandford has done, but if you can get away from the clunky names, chances are you'll find this an enjoyable book. At times a slow read, it picks up the pace in the second half - although it's not too difficult to guess "whodunit", the question remains how many more characters will be killed off, and why? Sandford leads the reader down a bit of a blind alley in the first few chapters, but any more than that would give the story away...

This cannot possibly be the standard fare for an author so popular. Boring, slow, stupid, dull...I will try another one, One other one.

Lucas Davenport is called to the scene of what seems like a hunting accident. A wealthy banker has been shot dead during the first minutes of the company's yearly hunting trip. An accident? No. Nobody really believe it was an accident, a lot of people had reasons for killing the man. As Davenport starts digging into the backgrounds and lives of the suspects, he unveils more secrets, and it soon becomes very confusing. He knows he is on to something, but it keeps slipping his mind. He finds himself thrown off track numerous times, for one reason or the other, as well as he has to deal with a new girlfriend and the memories of the old girlfriend, whom he was going to marry. In the end, everything leads him towards the real killer, who does not stop killing only one person. A great Lucas Davenport mystery.

I will keep this short and sweet. The worst of the prey series. Do not be discouraged when you read this book. I have read every prey novel and they are wonderful, this one just happens to be a bomb.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Minnesota banking executive is mysteriously killed during a hunting accident... Just before one of the most extreme mergers of banking history that is bound to make all the right players fat and wealthy as a result. There is money to be made and position to be acquired. One way to make sure to find the cash in-pocket and reserve that spot is to conveniently kill off the competition. But since everyone is guilty and innocent at the same time, who has the motivation to do it? You'll never guess, but you'll enjoy the story even more when you do.
Although I fail to understand how the title of the book became attached to this story, dear reader is forewarned of a thrilling ride. This is a well-planned novel with electric characters. It is certainly well-paced so that its audience finds no dull spots to endure.

This one is my favorite so far, but reviewing one book at a time in this series isn't quite right. The entire series is top notch. By page 2, I had a smile on my face and it never went away. The author is a master. The writing is effortless and unpretentious. The reading is involving and realistic. Once again the characters live and the dialog amuses. And once again, Sandford does not create artificial suspense so that he can attempt to surprise you in the end. The events unfold simply and naturally. Like Davenport, I can picture Sandford sitting in the office with his diagrams charting out his next novel. How ever he plots out the story and the characters, it is a huge success!

Well fans, if you haven't read them all, I would say that now is the time to go back to the beginning and start. Sanford truly out does himself in this book, you don't want to put it down. It becomes a game of real "whodunnit". I was really able to get my mind in this one and try and solve the case with Davenport, who I'd love to work with or more.
