Silent Prey (Lucas Davenport, #4) by John Sandford

silent prey s andford john

Non-fiction is written as John Camp. He has been the financial supporter of an archaelogical project called the Beth-Shean Valley Archaeological Project. His guards slain, the brilliant, insane pathologist of Eyes of Prey flees to New York to continue his research into aspects of death. The final two disks of this 10 disk story are well worth the listen. Unfortunately, I did not find the vigilante cops as charming, and while Davenport wraps up everything neatly, it wasn't to my gothic standard.

Silent Prey (Lucas Davenport, #4) by John Sandford

silent prey s andford john

Whenever his third-person narrated chapters are in view, the shocks keep coming. The two plots don't work very well and we go from Lucas hunting Bekker and investigating a possible cop who is behind the vigilante killings to Bekker's third person point of view. Jesus, people, women, should never relax their guard. Might be the best Davenport book so far, and it'll keep me back for another ride. He then spent four years at the University of Iowa, graduating with a bachelor's degree in American Studies in 1966.

SILENT PREY by John Sandford

Sorry for the sarcasm, but honestly I wanted to brain Lucas in this one. Meanwhile, Bekker pops pills and reaps victims under Davenport's nose until a major twist reveals why the killer remains invisible. And recycled villain Bekker is no Hannibal Lecter. Sandford has won several awards during his career one being the Pulitzer Price in 1986 and the other being the Distinguished Writing Award of Newspaper Editors in 1985. By Buried Prey, Sherrill had succeeded Davenport as chief of detectives in Minneapolis, and Davenport was close to his 50th birthday. That's not to say that I didn't like it, but inevitably in any long-running series, I suppose, one book has to be the best and another has to be the worst, even if they are all quite good.

Not only is Bekker running amok in N. My Take This is horrifying. There are twists and turns and amazing reveals; however, there was too much plotting and coincidences and not enough valid emotional tone. I admit I was dreading this book because it was two of my least favorite characters back. I just found myself bored throughout this book and was so happy when it was over. ยป ยป Order of John Sandford Books.

Silent Prey ย— Author's Introduction

They take Lucas to be an country cop and underestimates his skills until it's too late and he's got them in his crosshairs. He's now in New York and continuing his killing spree. I could do without so much bad language, as it is quite rough. Lucas is looking to do something as he has a lot of time on his hands. Early on, he was depicted as a womanizer, fathering a daughter, Sarah, out of wedlock from a running affair with blonde television news reporter Jennifer Carey. Terrell Scopes is with the Federal Reserve.

For that work, he won the annual and the award for Non-Deadline Feature Writing.

This one was quite a thriller, very appropriate for Halloween. Beginning with Naked Prey, Davenport is an investigator for the 's Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, acting occasionally as a special troubleshooter for the governor of Minnesota in politically sensitive cases. He started and later sold his own software company, Davenport Simulations, that first created personal computer games for private users, and later, emergency simulations for training police and other emergency workers. Add into that there are some vigilantes ridding 6. As an aside, the author states that at book signings he is one of the two villains mentioned most; shows what I know. When one of the bad guy explains himself late in the book, he notes that by killing off a relative handful of scumbags, they can eliminate thousands of crimes that impact innocent people. I think I finished in two days.

Silent Prey ย— Author's Introduction

silent prey s andford john

In this sequel to Eyes of Prey, Bekker endures the indignities and horrors of imprisonment, taking comfort in the fact that it is only a matter of time before he will make Lucas Davenport pay. Later in the series, Sandford would carry another villain over from one book to another very successfully, but it doesn't really work here. They've labeled him or her as Robin Hood. He is the principal financial backer of a major archeological project in the Jordan Valley of Israel, with a website at In addition to archaeology, he is deeply interested in art painting and photography. Feel more of a need to protect yourself. He both hunts and fishes. The dual-tracking of the book works well here, as Davenport pursues two investigations simulataneously, different in nature but both with the same goal: catch a killer.
