Format: Mass Market Paperback
A killer from one of Sandford's earlier books, Eyes of Prey, escapes. He's quickly back in business and isn't easy to find. Silent Prey brings the reader and Minneapolis Police Investigator, Lucas Davenport, to New York City in the hopes of finding serial killer Michael Becker. While there, Davenport is also asked to look into some serious police corruption within the department. An exciting addition to the Lucas Davenport series. Read Eyes of Prey first and follow it up with Silent Prey.

However, Silent Prey was still worth reading if you are on a plane or bus on a long trip. The capture of escapee Bekker and the Robin Hood killers, in my opinion, should not have been in the same story. Doing so made it difficult to follow and keep track of so many characters. It was still a decent book.

Doctor Death is back. The serial killer Michael Bekker aka Doctor Death is back. After being arrested and beaten up by Lucas Davenport in a previous novel, Bekker escapes prison and sets himself up in New York. Bodies start turning up, and Davenport's ex-lover New York cop Lily Rothenburg calls to Davenport for help. He is not working with the Minneapolis Police anymore, but uses his time developing computer games. He welcomes the chance to work with Lily, and goes to New York. He soon finds out that Lily and her chief of Police O'Dell hsa a hidden agenda. Davenport is not called to New York only to solve the Bekker case, there is a "Robin Hood" on the loose in New York, killing "bad guys" and everything points to someone inside the police department. Davenport is asked to figure this mystery out, while he officially works solving the Bekker case.
The story is great, and the plot smart. Although you know who the killer is from page one, you keep guessing almost to the end, how does he do it, how does he manage to keep hiding? And who is the Robin Hood? Is it Lily herself, killing off bad guys from the streets of New York? There are many layers in this story, but it never becomes boring, and the characters are likeable or realistic. A good read in the Lucas Davenport series.

The plot to the book started out great with Bekker breaking out of prison, but as the mystery moved on I really lost focus for the story. The ending with Bekker wasn't as suspenseful or as exciting as the previous prey novels.

I discovered Sanford and Davenport in Mind Prey and have since gone back and read all of the books in the series preceeding it and plan to read the ones following it. I enjoy Davenport because he is a good "cop" but he has his indiscretions without it tainting too much of his character. I really don't like that he has to sleep with a different woman in each book, though he is very honest about his enjoyment of women and his inability to resist most of them. This book, though not as good as some of his others, took an interesting turn by taking Davenport out of his usual haunts and placed him in New York City with a lot of people he did not know. Using the ultimate narcisistic psycho, Bekker, as the antagonist again was great! Sanford has a scarey imagination. I enjoyed the main plot twist that was keeping the police from spotting Bekker. I also enjoyed the parrellel story about Robin Hood. It was interesting trying to follow two plots that eventually merged in to one plot. Sanford writes some seriously good stuff. I look forward to reading the rest of this series as well as his other books. This is a good read!

Serial killer Bekker escapes from his captors and rejoins the world to practice his obsession... capturing (on film) the essence of the human soul as it departs the body at the moment of death. Can he be stopped before any more innocent victims fall silent prey to his malicious science experiment?
Dear reader will enjoy what is sure to become a made-for-television drama aired long after the kids go to sleep at night. Borrowing heavily from the ideas that made American Psycho a unique horror to read, this story just doesn't quite measure up. We've seen this kind of sick-o story time and time again.

Silent Prey is my least favorite Prey novel thus far. One thing that Sandford does so well is develop the life of Lucas Davenport - his life and the characters in it are almost as interesting as whatever crime he's working on. Silent Pray stripped away that detail, putting Davenport in New York City and only briefly visiting characters we've grown to know in previous novels. Perhaps it was a good move to break the formula but it wasn't entirely successful. But like all of Sandford's Prey novels, it was entertaining and worth the time.

The "Prey" series is one of my favorite.
Sandford creates some really great characters in this series and one great detective in Lucas Davenport.
The stories are always gripping and believable. The action is fast paced and nerve racking.
Most importantly, unlike so many other detective novel series by other other authors, the ending doesn't cheat the reader.
Start with the first book in this series and work your way through - you won't be disappointed.
