    The “Prey” novels by Pulitzer prize-winning journalist John Sandford consistently make the best-seller lists, but they are not for the faint of heart. Featuring Minneapolis Lieutenant Lucas Davenport, these thrillers are raw, graphic, and impossible to put down. In Eyes of Prey, a depressed and unfocused Davenport takes on a macabre case, tracking down a serial killer who maims the eyes of his victims after he has murdered them.

    The book held my interest the whole way through although I was going to give up at the beginning as it was quite a shocking start but read on folks as it is a GOOD book.

    A torso in a suitcase looks like an impossible case, but Sean Duffy isn’t easily deterred, especially when his floundering love life leaves him in need of a distraction. So with detective constables McCrabban and McBride, he goes to work identifying the victim. The torso turns out to be all that’s left of an American tourist who once served in the U.S. military. What was he doing in Northern Ireland in the midst of the 1982 Troubles?

    It's a fine day for a sail, and Victor Delahaye, one of Ireland's most successful businessmen, takes his boat far out to sea. With him is his partner's son - who becomes the sole witness when Delahaye produces a pistol, points it at his own chest, and fires. This mysterious death immediately engages the attention of Detective Inspector Hackett, who in turn calls upon the services of his sometime partner Quirke, consultant pathologist at the Hospital of the Holy Family. The stakes are high: Delahaye's prominence in business circles means that Hackett and Quirke must proceed very carefully....

    The line below comes from another reviewer for another book, however, I thought it was so true about Vengeance
    'This book goes on and on with small details about things that just does not matter'.

    I just couldn't finish it.

    Tried listening to it once, gave up on it quickly then after tried again when I had no more books left to read but gave up again. I did try to like it. The paranormal didn't bother me, it was to my mind a limpid story. Reader's accent was a bit too much also.

    An art history professor and writer and cheerful pervert, James Qatar had a hobby: he took secret photographs of women and turned them into highly sexual drawings. One day, he took the hobby a step further and...well, one thing led to another, and he had to kill her. A man in his position couldn't be too careful, after all. And you know something? He liked it.

    In the past... On a blisteringly hot August afternoon in Crystal Palace, once home to the tragically destroyed Great Exhibition, a solitary 13-year-old boy meets his next-door neighbor, a recently widowed young teacher hoping to make a new start in the tight-knit South London community. Drawn together by loneliness, the unlikely pair forms a deep connection that ends in a shattering act of betrayal. In the present... On a cold January morning in London, Detective Inspector Gemma James is back on the job....

    I really don't think adding children's dialogue into a mystery is such a good idea. Mentioning them here and there as part of the detectives lives is just fine but I don''t care to hear much more from or about them. It's a detective story is it not? Reader is good even if he had to play the part of a little girl ;-)

    Safe houses and secret message drops, double crosses and defections - it sounds like the stuff of sophisticated espionage, but the agents are only schoolboys engaged in harmless play. But John Creevey doesn't know this. To him, the messages he decodes with painstaking care are the communications of dangerous and evil men, and as he comes face to face with the fact of his beloved wife Jennifer's defection, he begins to see a way to get back at the man she left him for.

    Too strange for me. Strange kids, strange John. It was difficult to get into the story and once I was there, disliked the strange story as well.

    Television producer Fliss Benson is surprised to discover that her superstar boss, Laurie Nattrass, is stepping down - and that she is to take over his documentary about crib-death mothers wrongly accused of murder. Thanks to Nattrass's advocacy, three women are now free, while the doctor who testified against them is under investigation for misconduct. Then one of the mothers is found dead. In her pocket is a card with 16 numbers on it, arranged in four rows of four-exactly like the anonymous card Fliss has just received....

    It should have had 4 stars in my eyes but I found the reader annoyingly hysterical or unnecessarily loud at times while the author tended to add unnecessary dialogue that had nothing to do with the plot but was filler. I liked the plot but only gave 3 stars due to the above reasons.

    Please let it be known that this is a religious story. I would not have bought it had I known. I did not think that 'inspirational' was being used in the religious sense when I read the reviews. I sure was mistaken.
