    In Eyes of Prey, Bekker, an insane pathologist who experiments with his patients’ pain thresholds, is finally brought down by an unrelenting Lucas Davenport, who brutally maims the doctor’s beautiful face but leaves him alive. “You should have killed me,” were Bekker’s parting and prophetic words.

    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.

    Story

    I just couldn't stop listening to this book. The plot and exposition, especially the sub-plot about the "Robin Hood" cops just held me until it was over. It also got me thinking.

    This story takes place mostly in NYC during the last days of the Dinkins administration, when the city is on the brink of falling apart. The subplot about the Robin Hood cops who decide to take out some of the more egregious low-lifes making the city a hell-hole, presents some great arguments both pro & con. However, history shows that when the next administration, headed by Rudy Giuliani came in and started enforcing ALL the laws, especially the quality of life laws lawlessness went way down. The city now seems quite decent. This kept running through my head all the while reading the book.
    I used to live in NY state, not too far from the city and saw all this happen, so the story resonates with me, and I could understand the discouragement of those cops.
