If you haven't read this series you have missed a treat!

Mind Prey was the very first "Prey" book I ever read. I picked it up in an airport and was instantly hooked. John Sandford has the rare ability to build "real" characters that are flawed but real - cruel but interesting - attractive but not cheesy. For those of us with kids - this particular book is savage! It starts with a guy fishing on a lake... and right then your nerves will start to fray - you know that something BAD is going to happen. Step in Lucas Davenport - Part detective, part game designer, part animal. This guy is about the best detective I have seen portrayed. He isn't Sherlock Holmes and He isn't Mike Hammer, but he is definitely a bit of both. One last thing - if you read one - be prepared to buy the rest!

Seventh in the Prey series

Lucas Davenport faces a new challenge in Mind Prey. He is not hunting a killer through clues left at a murder scene, but instead is trying to find a kidnapped family, who may still be alive.Davenport's fame helps him out because the killer cannot help but call him and challenge him to a duel of wits. Lucas and his team must unravel clues given by the kidnapper, as well as decide who would profit the most from the families death.If you have read the other Prey books, you will be happy to know that Lucas' love life is still cruising along in one-woman gear. I would also add a warning that, although Sandford does not describe the attacks in detail, the woman who is kidnapped is repeatedly raped and beaten. If that sort of thing disturbs you, you may want to skip this book.Read this book, and keep reading the Prey series.


I have read several Prey books. My favorite until now was Winter Prey, but Mind Prey may be the best one yet. They are pretty close. In Mind Prey, John Mail kidnapes a women and her two daughters. She is a Dr. who has treated John before for mental depresion. Really a nut. He carrries them to a old farm house. There he begins to rape the mother. The youngest daughter is carried away. The mother is told he carried her to a Wal-Mart and let her go, but did he???? Lucus it called in to try and find Mail and the woman and girls. The action is great. The mind games Mail and Lucus play with each other is very good. I loved the ending. Goody, goody. Through out the book Lucus is also trying to find a way to ask Weather to marry him. Does he ever do it???? A very good read if you like scary stories.

A page turner to the power of 10!

I am in the process of reading #8 of 10 (so far) of the "Prey" series. I re-read the first 3 and have continued through the entire series. Mind Prey is #7 and by far the best yet. This story kept me locked in from the first pages. It has the hidden secrets, the "thing" Lucas Davenport just can't get ahold of, empathy for the victims, and surprises until the very end. Instead of "burning out" on the saga, I eagerly start the next book. WOW! What a storyteller is John Sandford!
