The "maddog" murderer who is terrorizing the Twin Cities is two things: insane and extremely intelligent. He kills for the pleasure of it and thoroughly enjoys placing elaborate obstacles to keep police befuddled. Each clever move he makes is another point of pride. But when the brilliant Lieutenant Lucas Davenport--a dedicated cop and a serial killer's worst nightmare--is brought in to take up the investigation, the maddog suddenly has an adversary worthy of his genius.… (mere)

Lucas Davenport -- intelligent, handsome, and blessed with a peculiar, but internally consistent, code of morality -- matches wits with a cold-blooded serial killer who has constructed an elaborate system of rules:
1. Never have a motive.
2. Never follow a discernible pattern.
3. Never carry a weapon after it has been used.

...and so on. Davenport understands rules; he designs games as a hobby, and finds the killer's self-imposed discipline familiar. In fact, the killer's rules hold the key to catching him.

This is the first of now twenty-two books in the Prey series. Sandford writes with wit and a gritty, police-procedural style. Banter feels genuine, and even Davenport -- who is a babe-magnet with a conscience -- is a realistically flawed hero. For a read-alike with a female hero, pair with Vanishing Act by Thomas Perry. ( )

This was my first John Sandford/Lucas Davenport book ever. I found it thoroughly enjoyable and unpredictable. I was surprised more than once with how the story played out. I do like the character of Lucas, but I’m not such a fan of his sort of girlfriend, Jennifer. He is the cop and she is the reporter, but I have to remember that this book was written in 1989 and things are definitely different now. I think Jennifer would still be considered a manipulating bitch today though and Lucas is still a player.

So the story revolves around a serial killer who has avoided being caught so far. It’s up to Lucas to catch him. I like that the story has good old-fashioned police detecting. I like that the characters aren’t written perfectly. I think a lot of books written today are too afraid to step outside the box the world is in today. The characters feel real and that’s hard to come by lately. He does his guy thing and she does her girl thing and we all smile at the end. ( )
